Maximizing the Sale...
I have been thinking of selling my 87 Schwinn Traveler. These are my options:
1. Bring the bike back to original condition with Suntour Alpha 5000 derailleurs, Custom bars & stem, Sakae SX crank, 27" wheels with Maillard hubs
2. Sell it with the set-up as I have been riding it now for the last year, which is like option one, but with 700c Wolber wheelset with 105 hubs (well, I've been riding it with Mavics and DA hub but I'm not giving those up), Tektro long reach caliper brakes, 600 Ultegra caliper brake levers, Cinelli bars & stem & black plastic fenders (see link in my signature below)
3. Strip everything and sell just the frame. I'm not sure this makes sense, especially since I don't think I'm going to use the leftover parts for anything else
4. Like number 2, but with all 600 Ultegra components, since I have most of them & 105 STI shifters/brake calipers
What should I do to maximize my money? Of course I'm not stuck to these 4 options, but these are the ones I can think of.
