There's a set on the bay right now that they're "asking" $400 for...................they seem to be getting some attention/interest with 17 watchers.

Check ebay sold listings. I believe these are still worth quite a bit.

Yes, they are certainly worth some money. I sold a set over the summer on Ebay for $325, I was pretty surprised.

I have seen a few sets of these sell recently at bike swaps and on Ebay in the $250-350 price range so I would agree yes they are still worth a bit. If I had a set I would sell them also you can sell them and buy nicer set of lighter spoked wheels and still have quit a bit left over.

Retro mtb parts are popular in the UK and Germany... if you list them on ebay, make sure you sell internationally to these countries. Or you could list them on Retrobike.co.uk.

I asked the same question on mtb forum and was told they are worthless. So I put them on eBay with a b.i.n price. Well, they sold in a day.thanks
