Is this wheelset worth selling separately? Nisi rims with unknown hubs

Picked up a low end Crescent that's had a bunch of upgrades done to it- most notably an Ideale saddle that still has pretty decent leather on it.


(saddle already removed in pic)

Before I finish this thing up and throw it on craigslist, I just wanted to make sure the wheelset that's on it isn't anything special. Rims are stamped Nisi Moncalieri Torino Italia. Hubs are alloy high flange, but are unmarked. Skewers have an "S" on them- Simplex? Some other S named hub maker I'm unfamiliar with?



Any input's appreciated. Doubt I have anything too valuable here, but figured it was worth checking.

Those rims have some value and the hubs are probably Stronglight. Not the same model rim, but a 1972 Super Course recently acquired has Nisis.

I had already checked ebay, the only Nisis on there that have sold have been tubulars. What makes you think Stronglight on the hubs? I can't find any info out there at all about vintage stronglight hubs.

At first, the 'S" reminded me of Solida but I've never a Solida QR. The truncated cone shape at the end was typical of SunShine and it got me to wondering if they simplified the graphics. The hub shells could be the SunShine copy of the Normady hub. Japanese hubs would also be a good fit for the SunTour derailleurs, though I wouldn't expect them to be laced to Nisi rims.

Looks like we have a winner! https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Sunshine...item1c33aa1d53

At this point I'm leaning towards leaving them on the bike, I don't think they're gonna be worth enough to go through the effort to sell them separately. The rims, while a recognized brand, are single wall, textured sidewall, and straight sided, and I don't think there's any overwhelming demand for Sunshine hubs.

27" clinchers and Sunshine hubs? Nah, I'd leave them on the bike. I'm sure they're an upgrade from whatever was there originally but not out of this world.

definite Sanshin Matsumoto. the early versions of these have the dustcaps pressed onto the cones.

that's a Briga chainset you have there. haven't seen one of those in a while.
