How does one price a Windsor Pro?

Hello,I upload some pictures of a Windsor Pro in Classic and vintage bicycles.Now after cleaning bike up lowering seat so that I can ride It.I enjoyed the fill of those tubulars tires.Moving forward was out riding and some cyclists stop spoke with me about the bike and Are conversation went in direction of how much would I sell for.Really! I just found out about history of Windsor Bikes,So my question is this.Does a bike gain value because of components or history around it or both?I hope this message is not confusing Set me straight.Thank You.Be safe out there.

These days, since the apparent decline in interest in vintage road bicycles, the value of that bike might increase but will do so slowly. If investment is the goal, forget it. The only bikes that are really increasing in value are the real high enders, often times with more recognizable names (Bianchi, Colnagl, Cinelli and the like). European bikes seen to rise in value faster.

Were it me, I would clean the bike up, make it safe to ride and road worthy, and then ride it. Of course, if I did that I would have to get rid of one of my bikes now and none of them are going anywhere unless something incredible comes along.

I think the desire of the buyer is the biggest factor.

...if your bike still has the stock original Campagnolo component group, those parts have a certain value in and of themselves. At the time it was sold new, it went for about half of what a similar Italian frame with those parts would sell for. so about $600 and change, versus $1200-1300. Personally, I find the ride and function of these to be pretty close to any other Columbus SL framed bike of similar age. But they used to sell used for much less, because the people buying them still remembered the original circumstances.

I have no idea what yours ought to sell for, and a lot of it depends on condition, circumstances, and location.

Op posted pics in this thread:

But no full bike pic of the drive-side, which is the most important shot.

Also, don't know his location nor the market he's targeting.

Very good bikes and well worth at least a few hundred dollars in rideable condition. More depending on condition. I love mine , it rides like a fine Italian racer.
