Ross - Campagnolo - 61 cm

I gave it a quick look but didn't have time for a thorough inspection or photos. I'll try to snap some photos tomorrow.

61 cm
Campy derailleurs (I only looked at the rear)
Campy hubs (Only looked at the front)
Huret stamped metal dork disk
Campy brakes
Frame has a Campy logo on the seat post tube
Exposed part of the seatpost is non-round (is this stock?)
12 speed

It's all there with toe clip pedals.

It's no garage queen; there are nicks and scratches, and the seat is worn from somebody spending miles in the saddle. I think the paint will look decent when cleaned up; I think it's been hanging in somebody's garage for a while.

Any thoughts on value? Donations like this pay our rent. I'd love to sell it locally and complete, but we're a small market; should we part it out and sell on eBay?

Need more details. What Campi brakes and rear derailleur? Any idea on the frame material?

Suppose I should have waited to post; I'll be at the co-op Tuesday night if not tomorrow. I'll take photos.

Ross is a tough brand name to get any value out of...parting it out seems like the way to go on this one...but, as Thrifty Bill said, it will take more effort...

It depends on the parts. a Campagnola rear derailleur could be anything from a Valentino to C-Rec. If the former may as well leave it on the bike. At a Co-op they likely have plenty of time.

Pics will matter; some of the signature Ross bikes were pretty special.

If this thread is right, it's probably Triomphe, mid 80's.

+1 I have done the same...and...while Ross did make some decent frames, the overwhelming majority of their stuff is not good...which makes selling them at the appropriate price very difficult. I have had two very nice Ross bikes...and ended up parting out and selling the frames...fortunately the parting out saved me...while the frames went for very little...

Ross 294s, with Triomphe (lower range campy). They're really nice bikes, tend to be undervalued. Size also a minus. I'd wager around 200-250$ and might be a hard local sale even at that, between Ross name and larger size.

I like mine a lot but don't think the real value is more than that.
