NOS Campagnolo Sheriff Stars (Sold!)

I know they're not actually a bike, but I'm so happy I got them that I think they deserve a separate page. I picked them up as a set for $500 and I couldn't be happier with them. I haven't cleaned them yet so that's why they look a little dirty in the pictures. They've been used 2-3 times at the track by the previous owner (so not exactly NOS, but close enough) If anyone knows how to successfully remove aluminum oxidation from hubs/rims then please do tell.

It was a sale/trade with my boss. I got a set of NOS C-Record pista cranks, NOS C-Record pista bb, and NOS C-Record pista chainring and bolts. Also I got some slightly damaged (merely cosmetic) 3T Ergonova LTD.'s and $100. I'll certainly miss them though.

Nice wheels man. In order to do a proper job you would have to take the wheels apart.
Remove the spokes rims, etc... Then use 0000 Steel Wool, you can get it a Home Depot, and polish the hubs. Don't worry, you won't damage them. What i wouldn't use is any king of sand paper, even if it's the Automotive type, 3,000 grit. The steel wool will not damage your hubs. If you want to try it first, take and old alloy hub and work on that. You will see what I mean. As far as the rims are concerned, if they are not coated or painted, you can try the same thing. If they are painted or they have a clear coat on them, don't use steel wool.
The only drawback with this method, you have to re-build your own wheels. Good luck!

Forgot to update these... I cleaned them with some really high quality polish and a microfiber cloth. It got ride of the all the oxidation on the hubs. And for the rims, I used 0000 steel wool and the same polish. I think rebuilding them would've been overkill. Thanks for the advice though.

What're you doing with them?

I polished them up really nice, rode them once (for like under a mile), then they've just been looking pretty ever since. I've got matching NOS C-Record track cranks, bb, chainring, dust caps, and track bolts to go with them, so I'm thinking I'll put all those parts on my DBS (I also have a Cinelli 2A in great shape) and hang it up, since the DBS has like 50 total miles on it.

These are so damn beautiful. Please, please don't skid in them. I had some (not on the Serotta) that were laced to box rims which I cracked the flange on the rear (no jumping, just skid stops and I'm a light rider).

Thanks, they don't see much use since they're in such good condition. I'm hoping to start track racing at some point, then I'll use them as my track wheelset

Thank you! And they see some use, just not a lot. I'm going to wait for a really nice sunny day where I'm not busy to take them on a nice, long ride. From the riding I have done, I can tell you that they spin the nicest of any hubs I've seen.

also, like benson said, don't worry about the bearings. when it comes to water exposure, you should worry more about the spoke holes. that's the common thing with these hubs is corrosion, which will weaken the spoke-to-hub contact big time & will ultimately lead to hub failure. something you don't want with these!

all you need to do is get the finest grade of steel wool (which is 0000), buff the hubs with it, wipe it down with a clean cotton rag, then use cotton balls with metal polish (like weynol or haggardy 100) & just work it in. you'll notice that the cotton balls will turn black, which is all the dirt & grime. after that, wipe it down with a cotton rag again or a clean cotton ball. that's it!

Nice hoops. Throw them on a bike & let them see the sun! Just don't get all cray cray w/ the tricks & hops.

I'm waiting for a very nice day :) the bearing are not sealed-cartridge, so any water that gets in by the bearings wouldn't be good. And they're like brand new! I don't want to mess them up! I dunno, I probably should ride them. I spent two hours with metal polish and microfiber cloths polishing them, so they certainly look nice. I'll post some picture of them on the GT sometime soon.
