Would it be better off to sell it as individual components or as a whole bike? It has the 36 high flange wheels, rear de, front de, Titiaum BB, Crank etc. Thanks Catapult

Interesting questions. I recently sold a 74 Zeus, if I would have parted it out, I would have made more money. Same goes for a Bianchi I sold piecemeal lately. i tried as a complete, no interest at $250 complete...then I pieced it out for a total of $500. That was last year though, seems the market is tough now. I currently have an immaculate Mondonico newly restored which is unbelievable, it is showpiece condition. Couldn't even sell it for $200 on ebay. Reason: I was honest in my description. it has two tiny dents which are hardly noticable and it was painted to compensate for some pitting in the chrome. It is far cheaper to paint and get new transfers than find someone to chrome. My advice is to cruise ebay observing the parts prices of similar components and see what they are getting and Go from there. Good Luck

The Mondonico is still available in 62cm ctt, I also have a kick ass all original 3 speed 1973 Raleigh Sport ladies for $100 OBO. Peace and out....
I'd say you'll get more parting it out...Dave Hickey

I'd even consider unlacing the wheels.

Parting makes me cringe though I understand the economics. There was an early 80s Master with SR on eBay awhile back (probably
Parting out a thoroughbred still makes me cringe....
