1989 Specialized Epic - first carbon

Just wondering what something like this might sell for. I'm aware of the various caveats regarding the glued lugs and have had the frame closely checked by a bicycle carbon repair shop. It was given a "thumbs up", otherwise, I wouldn't cosider selling it. It has full Shimano 600 Tri-color components and good Mavic wheels. As with most of these, the clear coat on the tubes has aged in spots, and it needs to be cleaned up a bit. It's just such an odd duck, that I can't find much in terms of realistic values. Any opinions?

These frames have little value but the 600 group and wheels are probably worth $250-300...
