1994 Bridgestone RB-1 evaluation

The bike has low miles, Shimano 105 group, except the brake calipers. Both shifters are stuck, probably old grease in there doesn't alow the shifting.
It is a1994, last year they made rb-1, but as I read less value than the earlier models.
The paint is nice, but it has two scratches, one near the head, one near the crank set on the drive side.
What should be the value to sell it?

1992 Torelli Nitro Express; 1972 Claud Butler.

That's a good versatile road bike that will likely accept up to 700 x 35 tires, which makes it more attractive todays than a lot of its contemporaries that are limited to 25c max. You might have luck with that on the i-Bob (stands for internet Bridgestone Owners Bunch -- an online carryover of folks who liked late Bridgestone USA designs and the work of Grant Peterson) Google group. That's a pretty clean example -- I'd ask $500-600, but I'd give cleaning/servicing the brifters some effort before listing it

I'd try to touch up those scratches, as well.
