Should I wait until "cycling season" starts in earnest and hope more serious buyers are out there, or should I buy a frameset of the same era (because this groupset does not belong on a 2021 frame), build it up, and sell it as a bike instead of as parts?
Is this a new or used group set?

Either way, I would part it out separately, rather than keeping it as a group.

As far as building it into a new bike.... buying what you need just to build up a bike to sell.... sounds like a lot of extra work that in the end will net you less money.
