Daccordi frame dedicated to DBS (with headtube cracks) - What is it worth?

Hi folks,
I have Daccordi frame dedicated to Norwegian brand DBS (Racing Depot). It looks great, it's very light, it has some scratches because of age. But it has one serious defect - 3 cracks in headtube. Guy from Daccordi staff estimated its value on 200 euro (without cracks). Year of production: ca 1998-1999. Frame is made of aluminium, steel fork. seattube: 58cm
I’d like to sell it to someone, its useless for me, but I don't know what is it worth now? 50-75 euro? less? more?

An aluminium frame with a cracked headtube is worth nothing, perhaps someone who is learning to weld can use it as a practice frame? I guess that you might get $20 for the fork, provided the steerer hasn't been bent by whatever accident pooched the frame.

Worth very litlte. Suitable only as a wall hanging or display. The cracks are too propagated to be safe in my opinion.

I would say worth about $10 for the headset and maybe $20 for the fork if it has no bends damage. The frame is not safe to ride or repairable you can't do much with major cracks in hard aluminium alloy.
