assuming light brake wear and condition mentioned
$100 locally and up to $200 on auction

older wheels are really a hit or miss and get little bidding activity
some days wheels like yours sell for $50, other days $200, but rarely more than that

Both wheels are in excellent condition with no rust, the rims have no excessive brake wear at all. The tires must have been replaced recently and show insignificant tread wear, they are Continental Ultra Gatorskins. Both wheels spin true and have no bent spokes.

So, can you give me some advice on how much one would typically pay for this wheelset? Thanks!
I would also suggest that you take the tires off, and either sell them separately (you can probably get around $40-50 for a pair of lightly used Gatorskins) or, keep them and use them if you use or are considering using those tires. They won't add to the incremental value of the wheel set as much as they're worth separately.

I agree, sell them separately. IMO, don't use them, the ride quality is poor and they will look weird on a vintage bike anyway.

I agree with the posters above, but would go further.
If the skewers are really nice, sell them separately too.
Ditto the freewheel. One hundred is a good ball park figure for the wheels intact without tires.

Agreed.

I am going to post some very nice wheelsets after the first of the year.

If they don't sell, they get dismantled and I will likely make more money on them as parts.

Easier to ship as well.

I disagree about the skewers - I consider them to be part of the hubs, and I would personally consider the value of wheels and or hubs alone without skewers to be degraded by more than the skewers themselves are worth. To me, a set of Campy Record hubs without skewers are worth a fraction of what complete Campy Record hubs are worth. I personally would not be interested in buying a set of wheels without skewers, unless I was paying MUCH less than what the complete set was selling for. This despite the fact that a set of Shimano or Maillard Skewers in good used condition can be picked up for like $8 all inclusive on ebay (in fact I just bought a set of Maillard skewers for $8 including shipping).

Yeah, it's not cool to separate the skewers from the hubs--they are matched, they go together, anyone who buys the hubs will need skewers. Selling the freewheel separately is fine, since it's not matched and teh buyer may well want a different one anyway.

Make sure you remove the freewheel before you remove the hubs from the wheel, or you'll never get it off.

I generally will only sell wheels locally because they're too pricey to ship. Locally you're better off with wheels intact. On the bay...hubs.

Assuming decent condition, I have found I do better selling locally with a complete wheel set. I would remove the tires and the free wheel if I wanted it. The hubs in decent shape will typically gross around 100 on the bay. Figure 85 net. Used rims have minimal value. I can sell a campy clincher wheelset locally for 125-150 pretty easily...so I do better with local sales of the complete wheel. LA is exactly right - removing the skewers and parting at that level is a jerk move.

Used tires typically don't sell for much or quickly. I won't buy used tires unless I really know/trust the seller. For ones that come used, I either keep them for myself or save them for friends. I'll toss them to a local co-op if they're in ok shape and I don't want them.

I can understand Dman's and LA's sentiment. And if it's a unique set of hubs I agree. So far I have only been a buyer of wheels, not a seller. Mostly on ebay, mostly without skewers. But seriously, selling without skewers is a jerk move? Chopping up a decent wheel that has survived 30+ years to make it easier/cheaper to ship and sell the hub (with the skewers of course), is not? OK, you're right. I'm sorry I suggested it. Please keep the skewers with the hubs.

Apologies if you read that as me calling you a jerk...it wasn't what I meant. To me the difference is that rims are consumables. Skewers aren't. Skewers come (or came) with the complete component known as hubs. Rims are added later. Many of us will change out rims and don't want what's on there...but few of us want to buy the skewers the hub came with, or upgraded OEMS. As an example - I've bought wheel sets specifically for the hubs - where I knew I'd change the rims. I ALWAYS change the freewheel, unless I have the chain that was mated to it. I've even bought a wheelset specifically for the rims (once).

Thanks, Aaron. No worries, I'm not really that thin skinned (at least not online). I would love to have gotten the proper Weyless and Roval skewers along with the wheels I bought... When it comes to nuovo/super (really all just record, since the difference was ONLY in the skewers) campy stuff, a lot of the time the skewers and the hubs aren't true matches anyway.

BITD We used to swap stuff around like crazy, just to make do, never realizing that some day people would care about what year your cranks were from, much less your lock nuts.
Best regards, Eric

I've shipped a lot of wheelsets, a lot of rims and a lot of hubs in varying degrees of completeness. So here's my 4 cents....

Everyone needs something regardless of it being a single skewer, single hub, or a complete set of wheels. When I sell my decision o part out depends on how desirable the item is. Nobody wants a single used Rigida rim or a single Gran Sport skewer but people do want Campy Record and they want Mavic.

When I sell complete wheelsets they need to be perfect....based on parts people in C&V have sold me my definition of perfect is much higher than theirs. A perfect wheelset should have had the hubs repacked which includes inspection on the cones and races. All of the drive side spokes should be clean with no evidence of chain drop. Rims should be straight without a single hint of a dent, crack or flat spot. And the rims should be dead trued and dished. If my wheelsets don't meet that criteria I part them out. Buyers care and don't care about tires, they're not needed but are a nice bonus. Conti's are good tires.

Parted out value may or may not exceed the value as whole depending on what you have. Shipping cost in irrelevant because its the buyer who decides if it's worth paying the cost.

Here's my break down of the OP's wheelset based on what I've sold them for:

Campy Record hubs w/ G40 rims and tires: $224.99-$249.99 with FREE shipping on Ebay. Buyer is still paying the shipping but it's just built in to the price.

Campy Record hubs w/ skewers: $100-150
Rear hub w/ skewer: $75
Front hub w/ Skewer: $40
G40 rims with spokes: $75-100

So right there the parts have exceeded the cost of the whole.

In general I always sell skewers with the hubs if everything is a matching set. Some people don't care if parts don't match but I do...I'm a stickler for it. I cant say I've ever made more money by selling skewers separately.

Parting out has benefits as someone is always looking for something...a single front skewer, a single rear hub, a single rim...whatever. At the end of the day the wheels belong to the OP...the OP in entitled, by default, to do whatever he wants with them.

Miamijim's recommendation? Sell as complete set with tires first...one set of pictures, one ad, one box to ship. One and done.

A good synopsis miamijim.
As a buyer, I want complete hubs with skewers, it would be rare to be interested in less... Save 32 hole hubs... They were uncommon, so you have to bend.
I have bought a few sets of complete wheels on eBay, for various reasons, possible deal including the shipping or rare rims where I was willing to risk it. I will admit most descriptions of wheels by sellers no matter the venue is optimistic! Only felt burned once.

I think when the time comes for me to sell some wheels, I might try to post a link to a YouTube video I would make showing the wheels spinning in a Turing stand and displaying how nice hey are. Close ups at the feeler gauge for true and roundness... That would open my wallet up a bit if I was a buyer.
