Shimano 600 EX 6200 Group lots of pictures

*Edited the text slightly after reading the stickied READ FIRST guidelines thread*

I would appreciate anybody's opinion on what this group might be worth. My location is Orange County, CA so think of it on the higher end price wise.

Thanks and here are the pictures.

That series 600 is not nearly as popular as the later tricolor. I'll look for everyone else's opinion, as I have a set of that era 600 myself.

For what it's worth, I sold a 6207 series group recently for $175. The parts were in similar condition, but I had included the headset and chain.

Ohh I'd love to get my hands on that, I'm partial to that era 600 and of course the tricolor stuff too. Sorry no info on value, but if you're looking to sell PM me. I might not be able to offer what it's worth but I'd like a shot at it.

Have you searched completed ebay auctions? That would probably be the best place to sell. Parts don't seem to go over well on craigslist.

Are you looking to sell the whole group together, or can it go A La Carte? I have most of a slightly older version of that group on my Prologue, but my shifters slip. I can probably find a pair on their own on Ebay, however. No sense breaking up the group unless you were going to anyway.

ETA: Rivendell sells a set of Silver brand shifters that look very much like the 600EX's and sound like they would work very well.

Funny this thread should show up at this time. I just brought a bike in fitted with an identical group, wheels and all. I plan to take the bike apart and sell the group as a unit on Ebay.

I have sold Shimano 600 Arabesque groups, wheels included, for as much as $300.00 and as little as $210.00, plus shipping, of course. My advice would be to offer the complete group on Ebay and set your Buy It Now prices accordingly. You can also offer a Best Offer opportunity, and accept a bit less, if you wish.

Hope that is a help.

Unfortunately, this is probably the least desirable of the various 600 groups. Most buyers prefer round chainrings versue Bio-Pace. As previously mentioned, it is missing the headset and hubs. Also missing is the freewheel or cassette, depending on the hub style. Value will be dependent on the condition of the bottom bracket and shifters, which cannot be assessed from these pictures, The latter is prone to breaking the small indexing tabs, often during dissassembly. In my area, this would bring $75-$100, in good, working condition.
