    Paramount PDG...f/f or sell as complete?

    I picked up a 1992 55cm Paramount PDG3 just yesterday and debating on selling it complete or just as a frame/fork/headset/seatpost. The components won't be a selling point besides making it a rider once they get it unless they want it as a original Paramount. Then on the other side if their looking for a Paramount frame and fork to toss on better or newer components then it may be a slight deterant and paying for something they don't want. The component set is full Shimano RX100. I looked around on the completed listings and seeing the stuff still brings some coin. the bike and components are all in pretty decent shape and work great. I picked it up from a older guy who took really good care of it besides being his commuter bike(older Cannondale seat bag with brand new matching spare Michelin tire, tube, frame pump, computer)Suggestions or experience?

    Attach some links where the auctions of those Series III framesets have gone well. I picked up a beautiful Series III off ebay a year, have been trying to decide whether to keep it, built it up with better stuff and resell it, or whatever. I have been sometimes watching the auctions, not real close, but I haven't seen them go for much.

    My thinking is the bike has more value complete, as those RX DT components won't get much response otherwise.

    Completed auctions of course are ones where the bike actually sold. There is a dreamer on ebay right now asking $550 for one, that is going no where.

    The only one I saw on ebay that actually sold had Ultegra STI on it (very nice upgrade).
