Moving a Few Along...

Hello everyone...while I love what I have in my collection...there are a couple that I believe I need to "move along"...what would you say on pricing these two...

(1) 1987 Team Miyata with full period correct Dura Ace

(2) Austro Daimler Vent Noir II (Smoked Chrome)

I know that I could probably net more $$$ by parting them out and selling the frames separately...but...as is...value? Both are in very good riding condition, as I went through them entirely and set them up for me to ride. I simply do not ride them enough to justify keeping them and they really do not fit what I am starting to collect...so I believe it will be time to let them go...

The Team Miyata should fetch over 800 on the bay. I know little about A-D's (not a fan).

Any thoughts on parting them out? Leave them whole?

Bill...that was my thinking as well...

So...overall thinking is part out the TM (not particularly original anyway...I put the DA group on it) and keep the AD more whole...I believe this is basically (other than the Brooks) the original set up on it...one full bike to ship and one frame...

A-D is definitely not worth what oddjob has it at. They don't have the name recognition, and the one you have is mixed with the wrong levers. I think that would be best parted out. I think you have ~350 in parts on it. Figure something like 200 for the frame and 100+ for the wheels.
