    vintage dura ace group. sell as group, individual, or on frame

    i have a vintage dura ace group that im trying to sell and im wondering what would be the best way to do so. The group is of the vintage that had index downtube shifting, single pivot brakes, wobler tubular rims, etc. The group has everyting but the headset even down to the areo stem and post. It came on a pink/purple and green frame that is a rahleigh professional. Renolds 531, rahleigh stamped dropouts so on. anyone who has experience in the field please advise is much needed.

    +1 on CV-6's comment, with the only question being whether the extra effort and trouble is worth it. If you part out, the frame will be your highest dollar item. Word of warning, and a piece of advice: that Dura-Ace group might not bring as much as you'd think. I have an '82 DA group on a bike and I keep my eye open for replacement parts, and compared to Campy of that era, prices are pretty low. The advice (based on subjective observation) is that the individual parts will bring you more, total, than the group ... but make sure to cross-reference your listings if you do it through eBay. Good luck.

    You might make more selling each little piece in it's own auction, but do you want to deal with 10 or 15 auctions, and payments, and shipments? You might make less $ selling the group as a whole, but the lower headache factor might be worth it.

    Since it's indexed, it would have to be 7400. Is it 7400, 7401, 7402? Who knows?

    Pictures and an accurate description would go a long way.

    I scored a nice vintage Dura Ace crankset last summer for my own 77 Volare.. they're out there if you are patient.
    Proverbs 6:6-11 - 6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. 9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? 10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

    If it's indexed, it's waaay too new for your Volare. Check your other thread. I think someone is offering you a period correct Dura-Ace group.
