Place to sell early 70s Raleigh parts?El Kabong

I have a number of parts from an early 70s Super Course / Grand Prix hybridization -- not enough to build a whole bike, but possibly of some interest to someone doing a restoration. Does anyone know of a place to learn about the value of various parts, or where to sell them? Thanks for any pointers.

then they are probably not worth too much cash. best bet would be ebay. just search for what you have in "cycling", but click on completed auctions so you can see final prices. again if it's not Campy NR you might just put them all on ebay as a lot. the market will tell you what they're worth. anyway, you might want to add a little info here to what you have to help with answers.

It's mostly just middle of the road stuff; GB centerpull brakes, GB stem, some rather nice Weinman QR brake levers, Super Course frame and fork. It's all just gathering dust and it might as well go to someone who can use it. Guess I'll try eBay -- everything seems to sell for about twice what it's worth there. Hate to just chuck it, but I need something to make it worth the trouble of selling it.

make a fixie out of itdesmo

if you have a near complete bike, are a good wrench, and don't mind investing in a track cog. presentable, ready to ride, vintage fixies usually fetch at least $100 or better on ebay. do a seller search for "cino59" and look at what he gets for them. he has a crappy attitude and is a total ripoff on shipping but still sells tons of these things. build a nice bike, give an honest description, and charge actual cost for shipping and you'll do even better. or if you don't want to put any work into it just sell the frame and fork as "fixed gear project". you'll do better than just putting it on as a 10 speed.
