Mystery Italian Track Bike - What's it worth?

So I'm think about selling this track bike but would like some input on its value. The frame is a mystery track frame from Italy. Very lightweight, but I have no idea who actually built it or what tubing was used. I bought it six years ago in Rome, for 200 Euros, and the guy who sold it to me told me it came from a warehouse in the province of Bari, in the southerm Apulia region and that, according to him, the brand was "Cascella". There is a bike company in Bari called Cascella, but I have not been able to find any evidence that this company ever produced track bikes. Anyway the frame is all steel, and I would estimate it to be from the late 70s to the early 90s. When I bought it, it had a horrible paint job and no decals. I had the frame re-painted by Bike Works in NYC, but they actually used an outside painter, who did less than amazing job. The paint is in OK shape, but there are some dings and flakes here and there.

If there is anything of value it is the parts. Here's the list:

Phil Wood bottom bracket (Italian thread)
Nitto Pearl 9 NJS stem
Nitto B123 deep drop Cro-Mo NJS handlebars
Shimano 600 aero seatpost (not pictured)
Sugino 75 NJS crankset
Sugino 75 NJS 46 tooth chainring
KMC chain
Dura-Ace 16 tooth NJS track cog and lockring
Tange Levin Stainless Steel headset
Vittoria Rubino Pro white tires (brand new)
Wheels are Mavic Open Sport laced to Miche Primato Pista hubs with DT Swiss double butted stainless steel spokes
MKS Sylvan track pedals
MKS chrome steel toe clips
Selle San Marco Aspide Gel Around saddle in poor condition but which will be replaced with a new vintage Concor saddle


Any thoughts on the value? I'm thinking that I'd like to get about $700. Is that shooting to high or too low?

Thanks!

You seem to be shooting low, especially in the NY fixed gear bike market. Regardless of what the frame is, there is a lot of value in those components.
