You might fool some folks with the swap, but savvy buyers will recognize the frame or model name as low-end, irrespective of what shifters are installed. If you can find a set of barcons at a bargain basement price, that would be a simple conversion.
Some folks may want the stem shifters, to keep things as original as possible.
