Fair offer for partial Nuovo Record group?

What would be a fair offer price to the seller for this group? The components were on a frame I recently bought (more on that in a later post). Supposed to be in good shape but have not been cleaned up, which is fine with me because I like to tinker with stuff. Good therapy. I've tried to compare sold prices but they seem to be all over the place.

Op, looking on the bay at recently sold items will give you a starting point
crank 60-100
bottom bracket 40
RD 30-50
FD 25-40
seatpost 50
pedals 40-70
As a group I would offer much less...150-200 would be what it would be worth, it is hard for "me" to justify high prices for stuff when you can often times buy a complete bike 250-300 with the group you are asking about...Perhaps you can offer less since you have already purchased the frame from the seller.

I agree. Max 200, 175 would be fair for both of you; less if pedal and B.B. bearings need work. You’re still gong need $100-150 for headset, brakes and levers.

Having both pedal dust caps is a good thing.

Check for cracks on your derailleur pulleys. Not a big deal, but a bit of a pain. I don't see any cracks in the photos, but still worth looking at it.

I think you may have some later model components in there. The 3 slots in the derailleur came in the late 70's or 80's, I think. You can look it up.

I don't think the seatpost is a Nuovo Record. Maybe Super Record? I think the NR has the rails attached to the sides, and no slots (although some slots may be aftermarket machined).

You've got a fair amount of rust on the shifters and some speckling rust on the front derailleur (I think). It also appears to be heavy wear on the inside surface of the front derailleur.

Crankset caps are a nice bonus (and are often missing or cannibalized before cranks are sold). I'm assuming the crankset bolts and washers are hidden inside of the cranks. The teeth look good on the crankset, although some mild wear on the small ring (can't see the manufacture label).

Are those pedal cages steel or aluminum? They may be a lesser model. ???

I agree with the above. $150 to $200 is probably close to the asking price, although I'd tend towards the low end $150 due to the damage and rust. A seller might be able to get slightly more parting it out on E-Bay, but then again there are the E-Bay fees, and hassle of advertising and shipping.

If it was me, I'd evaluate whether or not it is actually what you want. Are the cranks the right length? Proper gearing on the crankset?

If it isn't what you want.... then make an offer that you can't refuse. If it is perfect, give a little more.

Sold prices on eBay are really not all over the place, once you ignore NOS. If you are looking at asking prices, they are meaningless. Sellers can and DO ask crazy high prices, hoping to land a fish. Most of the time, they are unsuccessful. But on rare occasions, they are successful.

Most of the parts need serious cleanup to sell on eBay. Seat post will polish up nicely. Crankset will do well too. Shift levers and FD both have condition issues. Rear derailleur looks pretty decent.

Local sale on parts tend to be low around here, its more about convenience, and not profit. eBay is where the money is on parts. So locally around here, they might bring $100, while as separate auctions on eBay, seller could be $300 or higher, once parts were cleaned up. So an offer to a local seller of $100 to $150 is fair. If he wants more, he is thinking eBay.
