Subject: [CR] FS: Bargain wheelsets (9 pairs) Blow-out ... Campagnolo, Ofmega, Miche, Normandy


It's time to move NINE SETS of wheels, in order to maybe clear a corner. Items include Campy Nuovo Tipo (both large and small flange), Miche, Ofmega, and Normandy for Jerry. All are used, and most of them have not been ridden, serviced or cleaned in an unknown amount of time, so each has more or less dirt and grime to be removed. In addition to cleaning, all hubs except one or two as noted, should have the races cleared and the bearings repacked. No pair of wheels is priced over $100. Shipping will be exact cost only, and I'm happy to combine shipping where applicable. Pay with Paypal, check, money order, cash. Basics for each set are below (ordered least expensive to most). Can take quick pics if needed.

1) Normandy hubs c.1973, large flange, 36 hole, 120mm rear on Super Champion Gentleman 700c silver clincher rims with spoke hole ferrules, presta valve holes. Laced cross-4, the spokes look like stainless, straight heavy gauge. Includes ATOM 5-speed freewheel, 14-21t, with splined removal. No quick releases included. Front hub spins OK, rear feels kinda dry and stiff. Bearing service will go a long way here. Front decals still 60-70%, rear are still 75-80%, with one edge peeling up on the Super Champ decal. Front wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs a little bit of a true. Rear wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs only a light true. Freewheel movement is good. No rust on the steel bits, but there is light to medium haze on the aluminum, which would benefit greatly from polish. $50 plus shipping.

2) Ofmega hubs c.1985, look similar to Campagnolo Victory. Small flange, 36 hole, 127mm rear on Ambrosio Elite 19 Extra silver 700c clincher rims with no spoke hole ferrules, and presta valve holes. Laced cross-4, the spokes look like zinc or nickel coated maybe?, straight heavy gauge. Includes Suntour Winner (Date code BL for 1985) 6-speed freewheel, 13-26t, with removal prongs broken away ... Must destroy freewheel to remove! Quick releases included, but front is non-original. Front hub spins very fine, rear spins very good, with a slight grit feel. Bearing service will go a long way here. Front decals still 55%, rear are still 75%. Front wheel has no perceptible hop, and is pretty much true! Rear wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs only a light true. Freewheel movement is VERY smooth, but also very stiff. Lubrication will go a long way here. No rust on the steel bits, except for some on the q/r surfaces. There is light to medium haze on the spoke nipples, which would benefit greatly from deep clean or polish. $50 plus shipping.

3) Miche Competition hubs 1980s, Campagnolo Record copies including black oil cover. Small flange, 36 hole, 125mm rear on Fiamme red rectangular label, silver tubular rims with spoke hole ferrules, and presta valve holes. Laced cross-3, the spokes look like galvanized maybe?, straight gauge, with what look like brass nipples. No freewheel is included, but it takes standard 6-speed. No quick releases included. Front hub spins kinda stiff, but rear spins very smooth. Bearing service will go a long way, on the front especially. Front decals still 75-80%, rear are still 80-90%. Front wheel has a light perceptible hop, and needs a true. Rear wheel has a light perceptible hop, and needs a true. Wheels need a good amount of cleaning. There remains about 30% residue of one layer of glue only. No rust on the steel bits. There is light to medium haze on the aluminum, which would benefit greatly from deep clean or polish. "WAY" is hand written in what looks like permanent black marker on the front rim, 2nd space from the valve hole. $50 plus shipping.

4) Miche Competition hubs 1980s, Campagnolo Record copies including black oil cover. Small flange, 36 hole, 126mm rear on Wolber Super Champion Aspen, black tubular rim. Small flange, 36 hole front on Fiamme Hard Silver, pewter colored tubular rim. Both rims have spoke hole ferrules and presta valve holes. Laced cross-4, the spokes look like zinc or nickel coated maybe?, straight gauge. Includes no freewheel, but takes a 6-speed. Quick releases included. Front hub spins excellent, rear spins excellent too, but makes a light clicking sound. Bearing service will be good, but might not drastically improve the movement, which is great. Front decals still 90-95%, rear are still 95%. Front wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs only a very light true. Rear wheel has a slight perceptible hop, and needs a light true. No rust on the steel bits. Silver-pewter finish on front rim may have faded slightly. Black finish on rear rim is still excellent, and there looks to be no brake wear. Hubs have a more satin-like finish, similar to the old Dura-Ace of the 70s. $65 plus shipping.

5) Ofmega Competition hubs 1980s, Campagnolo Record copies including black oil cover. Small flange, 36 hole, 125.5mm rear on Super Champion Gentleman "81", silver 700c clincher rims, with spoke hole ferrules and presta valve holes. Laced cross-4, the spokes look like zinc or nickel coated maybe?, straight gauge. Includes what I think is a Regina two-prong removal, 13-21t, 6-speed freewheel, marked "85" I presume for 1985. Freewheel spins excellent. Quick releases included, but they look more like a Gran Sport copy. This wheelset is probably the cleanest of the bunch. Front hub spins very well, but rear seems to be locked up! I didn't take it apart, but it's probably just too tight or hard grease, and I can check more deeply if someone serious about these wheels asks. Bearing service will go a long way. Front decals still 80%, rear are still 80-85%. Front wheel has a tiny perceptible hop, and needs only a very light true. Rear wheel I can't spin to tell for sure, but it looks OK by eye, meaning no obvious bad spots. Some oxidation on the ferrules, spoke nipples, and rear q/r lever, which should all clean up considerably with deep cleaning techniques. There is light to medium haze on the aluminum, which can polish out, and the set is pretty clean overall. $75 plus shipping.

6) Campagnolo 1976 dated Nuovo Tipo small flange, 36 hole hubs, English threaded, 120.5mm rear on Super Champion silver 700c wide clincher rims (orange colored, oval shaped decal), with spoke hole ferrules, presta valve hole, and NO HOOK for the tire bead. Laced cross-4, the spokes look galvanized, straight gauge. Includes Suntour 8.8.8 Perfect, 14-28t, 5-speed freewh eel, marked "SJ", also for 1976. Original quick release skewers included. This wheelset is probably the dirtiest of the bunch, but it all cleans off. Front hub seems to have been serviced relatively recently and spins excellent, albeit, it's set a TINY bit loose. Rear hub spins very smooth, but also grabby like it has drying grease, and feels like it should be great like the front. Bearing adjustment, and some service on the rear will go a long way. Front decals still 90%, rear are still 80-85%. Front wheel has a tiny perceptible hop, and needs only a light true. Rear wheel I can't tell for sure because of the inconsistent roll, but it feels like there is no or a tiny hop, and needs only a light true. Some oxidation on the ferrules and quick releases, and there is medium to heavy haze on the aluminum, which can polish out significantly. $80 plus shipping.

7) Campagnolo c.1972 Nuovo Tipo small flange, 36 hole hubs, English threaded, 120mm rear on Super Champion Gentleman silver 700c clincher rims, with spoke hole ferrules, and presta valve hole. Laced cross-3, the spokes look stainless, but I'm not sure, and are straight gauge. Includes Suntour Perfect, two-prong removal, 14-26t, 5-speed freewheel, marked "YF", for 1982, so obviously not original. One of the two removal prongs is slightly compromised, so care should be taken when using them. Original quick release skewers included, and they are fully cleaned and in excellent condition! Front and rear hubs both spin excellent! Service may be done, but I would not expect it to significantly improve the movement, as it is already so good. Front rim decals still 50%, rear are still 75%. Front wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs only a light true. Rear wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs only a very light true. Some light oxidation on the ferrules and nipples, and there is a light haze on the aluminum, which can polish out. $100 plus shipping.

8) Campagnolo c.1971 Nuovo Tipo small flange, 36 hole hubs, English threaded, 121mm rear on Weinmann silver tubular rims with World Champion stripes decals, no spoke hole ferrules, and has presta valve hole. brake surface on the sidewalls has a sort of pebbled or pin-perforated texture. Rear is laced cross-4, and front is laced cross-3, galvanized spokes, straight gauge. No freewheel is included, but hub is spaced for 5-speed. Original quick release skewers included. Front hub spins excellent! Rear hub spins very well, but makes a clicking sound. Service will go a long way on the rear. Front rim decals still 90%, rear are still 90-95%. Front wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs only a very light true. Rear wheel has no perceptible hop, and needs a mild-medium true. Some oxidation on the quick releases and a bit on the front hub dust covers, and there is a medium-heavy haze on the aluminum, which can polish out considerably to completely. $100 plus shipping.

9) Campagnolo 1971 dated Nuovo Tipo LARGE flange, 36 hole hubs, English threaded, 121mm rear on Fiamme silver 700c wide clincher rims, with schrader valve hole, and NO HOOK for the tire bead. Laced cross-3, galvanized spokes, straight gauge. No freewheel is included, but hub is spaced for 5-speed. Original quick release skewers included. Front hub spins fine, but could use service. Rear hub spun well before service too, but is now apart and fully cleaned. I will grease, re-assemble, and set before shipping, unless buyer asks otherwise. Rim decals are all but gone, save for a trace of the red or yellow oval logo on the front, which looks more orange than anything else, so I can't tell which it is. Front wheel has a tiny perceptible hop, and needs only a light true. Rear wheel I can't spin to check, but I recall it is about the same. A bit of oxidation on the hub dust covers only, and there is a medium haze on the aluminum, which can polish out considerably to completely. $100 plus shipping.

Please feel free to ask questions, make corrections or suggestions, and to ask if something is still available, even if it has been some time since the offer was made ... you never know. Thanks...
