Composite frame any value?

I have a composite frame from the early 70's made be Phillips Petroleum called a "Lineseeker" I have a mix of components to complete a bike.
Dura Ace crank,Phil Wood sealer hubs and BB.Mavic wheels,Campy front and rear derailleurs,and brakes.
Any value to all this stuff worth putting on Craigslist?

Thanks...

Two questions, value? Yes. On Craigs List: Doubtful, depends where you live. Around here, parts and bits do miserably on C/L. The names you mentioned on parts tend to do well on ebay.

Looks like a nice setup, did you pick this up at a storage auction?

Boy, that sure looks very similar to the Exxon Graftek frame, specially the angle slash cuts at the polished lugs. Could it be that the designers of the Graftek switched over to another Petro company to produce their bikes?.......Or maybe a Graftek owner (Maybe a worker from Phillips Petroleum) got bored and with his own decals, created a competing brand to the Exxon Graftek as a joke? Who knows till someone else chimes in to clarify things...but weirder things have happened with bikes before.
BTW, It's a beautiful frame. It looks like very good quality from the pics....
Might you be interested in sellng it to me??

+1. It appears to be a rebadged, early version Graftek, before they developed their proprietary rear dropouts.

Chombi- The frame is in very good shape.
I have my stuff in a storage unit right now and I would like to sell the bike/frame.
I ride another bike when the weather is a bit nicer. ;-)
Make me an offer !
