1985 Specialized Allez SE vs 1988 Trek 400T

Which one is worth more? And how much?

The frame on the Trek seems to be in much better shape to me. It also has indexed shifting. However, you can't go wrong with the Suntour Superbe on the Allez. And the Allez was near the top of the line for Specialized the year it was made while the 400T seems to have been on the lower end of things for Trek. The Allez is much more race oriented while the 400T is more multi-purpose. Personally, I have always wanted an Allez from that era. Just trying to figure out how things compare when bikes have different strengths and weaknesses.

1985 Specialized Allez SE:

SunTour New Superbe Pro front and rear derailleurs. Suntour New Superbe Pro shifters.
Special series double-butted chromoly.

1988 Trek 400T:

Shimano Light Action GS front derailleur. Shimano Deore Indexing rear derailleur. SIS shifters.
True Temper RC-1 double butted chromoly.
