If I were to sell my pink 1985 Trek 770

I have a 1985 hot pink Trek 770 size 60cm I think I want to sell. The previous owner had changed out some of the components. I took the mismatched components for another build and replaced them with components from the same year Trek 670. The frame set is 770 and the components are 670. The photos show the bike before I swapped components.

Im not a flipper and not looking to get top dollar by detailing the build. Id like to get a fair price and deal with honest cycling enthusiasts to sell it. I realize this frame may be pretty desirable and it would be good to see it go to an appreciative buyer.

What would be this bike be worth if I were to sell it? Ive never sold a bike before so Id welcome thoughts on how to best do it. Should I use the market place on this forum?

Thanks.

Edit the post and delete any language regarding selling. Leave request for valuation. Or, as suggested the mods will come around and do their thing.

Yes, do yourself a favor and list location specifically or generally in your profile. It really helps in cases like this. And valuation will be location specific. Ebay prices will certainly be higher along with additional headaches.

Today's irritating private message on ebay, on a fixed price buy it now, where I am asking HALF of what the only other competitor is asking "Can you do any better on the frame, what's your bottom price?"
