I’d probably sit on it and keeping working the sale— CL, FB marketplace, eBay— and expect it to sell in the spring.

I don’t know where you priced it or what you are willing to take, but I’d be happy to pocket $450 - $500 and be done with it. Box it up, ready-to-ship, and wait for it to sell online.

Building a frame is an option, and I agree a complete bike is easier to sell (esp. locally), but the frameset probably won’t add it’s cost. I mean, buying a $400 frameset doesn’t make it a $900 bike. If you can get a $100 frameset, okay, maybe you have a $600 bike, but even with a power meter, it’s my guess you won’t pull much beyond $700 unless you score a big name frame for really cheap. But do you want to sink more time looking for that? And then do you go through the hassle and cost of shipping a whole bike?
