Titus FCR Titanium bike, evaluation

The seller said is a 2004.
On line I can see on BBB a 2006.
The frame is in nice condition, but the Dura-Ace parts are scratched, i am talking about the shifting/brakes levers and the crank set.
The set of wheels is Shimano R500.
The stem has a Titus sticker, can it be titanium?
The bars are kind of Bontrager.
The seat post is not marked.
On the frame is another sticker : 100 Titus Titanium. It refers at frame only or frame and fork??? No idea
Maybe somebody can help with these ??? and with a evaluation as frame/fork or complete as is.
Thank you

Yes

that looks like a legit Titus titanium frame -- the post and stem look Ti too from the pic

a 2006 model if it had a current gruppetto, would have Dura Ace 7800 , but there is sometimes no rhyme or reason to how a bike is built if its built up from a frameset

Very cool --

Street value? -- maybe 6-700 bucks max

I just sold a Pinarello Opera with Dura Ace 7800 for the princely sum of $400 and it was an equivalent bicycle to this machine --- its a buyers market for sure and there is blood in the streets

The crank set is marked 7700.
The bike, as is, has 19 lbs.

Parting it?
I saw frames sold for around 500, but not the same.
How much will somebody pay on those scratched brifters?

Looking on line, it looks to be a 1997 model.

Well, you seem to agree that this one would make more money parted out. I think the evaluation for the complete bike above is accurate. As for parts, eBay "completed" items gauges how much they're currently worth. You can sell stuff low and quick, or high and slow... Pick a price that fits your needs/conditions that's not way above what the highest has sold for and hope someone wants it!

Surely you could make near or over $1,000 selling the gear off this bike presentably.

Nice bike. I would consider paying $700 complete if the frame fit me. Parting it out you might get 300 for the frame, 200 for the fork, and maybe 300 for the cockpit, groupset, wheels, etc.

I just ride the bike around the block, before I start parted it.
It is a beautiful, smooth bike, but way to large for me.
Anyway, because of the ugly, scratched condition of the brifters, I decided to part it out.
