Campagnolo Record Pista 165mm 151bcd crankset w/BB


I've been following this Ebay auction and it's really blowing by mind. At $500 with 6 hours to go still. Seriously? Because I don't get it, what's so special about those? It's just an older 151bcd Campa Pista 165mm crankset in nice condition with a big matching chainring, bolts, caps and bottom bracket.

Weeeeell, I got similar set with 49t chainring (the kind with the special extra thick inner lip) and a British threaded BB, all in very nice condition. And I guess I'd be willing to part with mine, so I'll accept any offer above $500...

EDIT.
The auction ended at US $531,00. Crazy.

Well, the last year every track item on Ebay as gone up like crazy. Bought a nice campa pista crank (144bcd) a year ago for like $150 and now they all go for 275 or more! In a few years guys we're all millionaires...

Hi guys, I'm really amazed at the outcome of the auction.

If the buyer really was that Timo Scholz guy who desperately needed a 54t 151bcd chainring, then I guess we just better wish him luck for the Berlin 6 Days. ;)

Anyhow, yes, the Ebay prices of any Campa pista cranksets have obviously gone up like crazy just in couple of months, which I have hard time understanding why. Happy to own my own pair of those of course...

no, timo did not buy it, talked to him today, he found a 66 chainring, yes 66!?
