24K Campy 50th Groupo went for 8k

Out of my league entirely... and show bike not a rider obviously. But well I guess not that bad if a regular NOS Campy 50th Groupo case can go for 6k+

CUSTOM CAMPAGNOLO SUPER RECORD 50TH ANNIVERSARY GOLD PLATED ORO PLUS FREEWHEEL | eBay

Wonder where you go to get something like that 24k plated? Job looks nice. Makes you curious about what frame that Gold dipped Groupo would get built up with.

Good to see stuff selling.

I had a saturday night special gold plated back in the late 80's, and some car parts like door handles, overhead light, emblems (yeah I worked on my cars too to make them look good, although my gf now wife would argue that).... I was under 20 and my brother worked in a shop that did it next to nothing for me, so I plated all kinds of stuff. I gave the piece to my bro in law several years back and he still has. Kinda geto or showy but gold parts and pieces are pretty cool and fun to look at.

Sounds to me like someone overpaid by a bit under 8k. But what do I know.

Yeah, but it's a high number set. I don't get the "for show" mentality. They're bike parts and thus should be used. That said, I have to admit that I swapped my 50th anniversary gruppo for same vintage super record, because I started to feel uncomfortable about additional wear.

That gruppo is committed to forever spend it's days in a display cabinet, on velvet lined trays and shelves...... kinda sad,.....but who really wants to be seen on a C&V bike festooned with over blinggy gold plated stuff on it......
Just imagine having to go through that very stressful moment when one has to finally insert that seatpost into the seat tube......

Who cares. People value things differently.

FWIW, this is exactly how stupid I think Rolex watches are.

I think it's beautiful.

But 8 grand beautiful.

I wonder how they did those pedals? Was this a factory job?

My first thought, this is a DJ Trump group.

All could be done after the fact save the pedals, had to have some cooperation from Campagnolo on those.

When the 50th groups came out, I liked some stuff but thought the price was silly.
I warmed up to it slightly over the decades, but not enough to seek one out.
Better than the later one, 75th? 80th? anniversary group, those ended up selling for a discount after the demand fell off quickly.

I think 50th sold at discount at one point too. Deltas did, as did sheriff stars.

Betting ICS.

I find the price hilarious simply because the plating seems catch-as-catch-can. I can understand not plating the rings, but what about the RD's top/bottom pivots? The headset spacer? The FD's mounting point?

I, too, wonder how he was able to plate the pedal barrels. The stamped bit that holds the cage to the barrel is in bare alloy. Interesting.

There's a place for just-for-looks. I just think a little more thought/time/effort could've made this a little more complete. But then I'm picky as all get-out

I've never been able to find any price info on what these went for BITD. I personally never priced one! Can you remember a number?

Yeah I was wondering that myself. Maybe something is lost in translation from Spain, The way he says the Plating was done makes it sound like, oh yeah no problem I just had it done down the street. To my untrained eye it looks pretty good , but If I was an interested party for that price, I would want to know exactly what type of outfit did the plating and is it really 24k.

Maybe the cat who bought that group has a NOS 50th Paramount frame-set? That would all go together and the final build would be a masterpiece.. Then hang it in a display case lined with purple velvet...

Ahh more porn but related. I like this same year Super Record Campy Black/Gold groupo, built up with this Cinelli SC. For melthough it is extravagant show bike, but understated somehow with the Black chrome and Gold platted accents.

(part two link is on page also.)

I will have to ask, a friend who I should describe as a bike of the month club charter member had a DeRosa with a 50th group, got all kinds of grief from the local club guys. He soon sold it.
He now seems to limit himself to one every 6-9 months, but the price bracket is a bit different now, I expect him to get a set of the new Zipp wheels, $4k a pair...

I totally agree.

Buyer will slam it all onto an Ironman and ride it cyclocross because some people just want to watch the world burn.

But yeah. I think it's pretty awesome. Elevated to art.

I mean, I had one (actually two - one used that I rode pretty much the entire two years stationed in London, the other mint in box I sold some years ago. I think I sold the unused set for $2500) in the mid-90s. Have no idea the premium over the normal gruppo in 1983.

I like this much better. The gold is used for the details, therefore is no so in-your-face. Makes me want a black bike
