More of my weekend haul...Campagnolo Record Hubs

So, I posted the Raleigh and the Ciocc that I picked up from this weekend....the guy had a whole backyard full of stuff. I grabbed these wheels as well (also some others I'll post later). Simply because of the Campy factor....obviously. They were covered w/ grime, and still are somewhat, but quick spray down for the pics w/ WD40.

So,
1) How old are these Campy Hubs? I know they are a high flange hub...but my knowledge ends there...
2) They are currently on some unidentifiable (no stickers, markings) Tubular rims. I'm not going to keep them, no need to. So, is it worth it to try and sell them w/ the rims (shipping from Alaska to anywhere in the real world isn't cheap), or am I better off just parting them down to the hubs?

Thanks for any advice you guys can lend....Chris...

1. Those hubs didn't change much over the years. Best way is to look on the inside of the locknut (you will have to remove it), where you will find a date stamped.

2. Those are great wheels, sure to make someone happy. Truth be told, the wheels + shipping aren't worth much more than the hubset plus shipping. You will probably end up about the same in the end, but you'll have dismantled something in the process. If the wheel is true, I prefer to keep the wheel intact. That said, most buyers will want to polish the hubs/rims, and that's much easier done if the wheels is taken apart. Personally, I love tubulars and have them on most of my bikes and would be delighted to have an extra tubular hi-flange Campy wheelset. But tubulars aren't for everyone. All this is to say, there's no right answer.

Are the bearing races and cones in good shape? The rear spacing to be 120mm, right? (I'd really want to dish them to 126.) What would shipping costs to Massachusetts?

Rims look real similar to my Campy Delta Strada XL, I agree with above, no one pays much (usually) for Vintage Tubular wheels, about as much as the hubs as already stated.

Get the date code off the locknuts, then decide what to do. Those would be the exact wheelset that somebody with a 196X or 197X race frame would want to drop right in, assuming the rims are in good nick. I swapped a similar pair dated '73 (for a pair of low flange clinchers) to a forum member for his '73 Cinelli build and it gave me a warm karmic feeling.

I think the hubs are 126mm....I'm counting 7 cogs on the freewheel. 36h and they've been rebuilt at least once.

Shipping from Ankorage to Tampa is ~$40 via USPS Standard post 15lb box less than 108" but greater than 84" 40X26X7

Personaly, I'd cut the hubs out. They're worth more that way and the shipping cost is only $10 to the entire Continental U.S.

As much as I'd like an alternate wheelset with sew-ups for the Masi, I think I'd just as soon build them myself with 32h and my choice of spokes. It's just a silly long-term vision anyway.

If you have the skewers they will add quite a bit of value to the hubs.

Tubular wheels on a Masi are a necessity.

Ah. That explains why no matter how hard I pedal I never seem to go anywhere.

it DOES! The 6 speed freewheel could be a Ultra 6 for 120 spacing. I have a couple of extra sets of HF and value them! Need some rims to go with them, and of course the very expensive spokes! With an axle change and spacers, they work well for 7 speed @126 spacing.

Just please be sure to remove the freewheel before you start cutting spokes!

And the sew up rims will make some Cross racer an nice spare set to build up for the weekend races.

unscrew the nipples a little bit at a time as you go around the wheel so the rim stays round and flat, to be reusable..
