I have the 2x8 sti levers with some cosmetic roughness, but work fine
And could even supply a headset and DT shifters
Also have 32h 6400 front hub and 6402 (8 speed 130mm) rear hub
Any idea what these things are worth, ebay seems to be everywhere, and I cannot believe some of the crazy high prices people are asking is actually selling.
Pics will come later.
Step one on ebay, IGNORE asking price. Look at completed auctions, where the item actually sold (some completed auctions will be for items that do not sell). Sellers can ask any price they want, including crazy high/ridiculous prices. Every once in a while, they will hook a fish, but usually, those items do not sell.
And condition is everything, so if you want an honest appraisal, you will need to post high quality pics (will need them to sell the items anyway).
The other thing about ebay, is your reputation, willingness and capability to ship internationally, and marketing skills have a big impact on the sales price. Newbs to ebay tend to get lower prices.
I sell on ebay every week, its a lot of work, full of fees, and all of ebay's policies favor the buyers (so be prepared to bend over backwards on returns/concessions on pricing/complaints/and so on). I consider all of that hassle to be part of the "cost of doing business" on ebay. Sometimes it is not worth it. Other times, its terrific... One problem I have on ebay is that most buyers have never sold. So they really have no understanding of shipping cost, time, listing accuracy, etc. I got a complaint on a pair of shoes, took one week to arrive from SC to Texas. Give me a freakin' break. I shipped them the day they were paid for, and I sent them priority mail (buyer paid for parcel post). No matter, they flamed me on it.

If this stuff is in good to excellent shape, I think you could get about $240+ sold seperately (not including DT shifters and headset). Good luck with the sale.
