Capmy 8-sp wheels - sell as is or part 'em out?

I need the collective wisdom of the C&V world. I have a pair of wheels taken off from a '93 Fuso.

The question - Am I better off selling the wheels as is or breaking them down and selling the hubs and rims seperately?

The details - They are 8 speed, 1993 or thereabouts. The hubs are Campy and I'm 95% sure they are C-Record, as they have the oil port cover in the center of the body and have a great finish. (Most of the other stuff on the bike was C-Record, although the RD was Chorus.) The rims are Campy Omega 19's. I have no idea who made the spokes. The wheels are used, but appear to be in very good shape. I really have no use for them and want to sell them to someone who does.

Thoughts?

Not to be too crass, but how about selling them to a fellow BFer who has been looking for exactly what you want to sell.

I'm not sure what Omega rims are off the top of my head but....if they clinchers sell them complete. If they're tubulars try to sell them complete....if they dont sell, cut out the hubs.

Sell them complete.
Offer them up here if you're not seeking the cash, or offer a trade.

I agree, sell them whole I think buyer tend to shy away from used rims. (especially when you show then and spokes are still hanging in them LOL) are the tubular?

8 speed as in cassette? I'm assuming since you say CR that they are freewheel.

My experience: Based on similar ebay sales I offered an 8s wheelset - Record rear hub (cassette), Chorus front laced to Open4CD for $100 on local CL and in my signature here for about 6 weeks. Offered 'em up to a few who were looking here as well. A little interest but no takers. (I did not try to ebay them as a wheelset).

I took the hubs out and sold them on ebay. Chorus front hub went for $89, Record rear hub for $90. And I still have rims and spokes in the parts bin for future use. YMMV

Thanks, all, for the feedback. It all helps.

Bob, it is a cassette rear wheel. And a Record rear going for only $1 more than a Chorus front? Go figure.

Miamijim, the Omegas are clincher rims. I believe the "19" refers to the width of the rim, but that's an just educated guess.

I had some Omega rims before. 19 = 19mm - the width of the rim. They were a good combination of "strong enough" and "relatively light".

Bikingshearer, before this thread devolves into people falling all over themselves making you veiled (or blatant) offers, could you consider pricing them and offering them up in the For Sale sub-forum? I realize your intent here was to garner advice, but these things have a life of their own, and tend to turn into sales threads.

Thanks,

Z

Not really sure what they would go for used, but NOS Chorus rear hubs go for $$$. C-Record (or were they just plain Record by then) are extremely rare and I would presume would go for $$$$$$!

Clinchers....sell them as is. I've noticed that clincher wheels/rims with alot of brake wear dont sell for good money. A wheelset with well worn rims may not sell for much more than a loose pair of hubs.
