Finish this Campagnolo Nuovo Gran Sport gruppo or nah?

I have an incomplete NGS groupset from a Trek that I am unlikely to use. I'd like to sell it off, but not sure what to charge and not sure if I would get more if I tracked down some of the missing components. Options also include building up a frame, but I don't really think that would be worth it.


I did already buy some shifters for it (not pictured) but am I likely to fetch any more (or will it be easier to sell) if I manage to pick up a set of NGS pedals and/or headset? And worth it to unlace the hubs and include them in this group, or sell them separate? I'll probably be taking the levers off the bar and stem and keeping those on the bike they came from.

Sell it a la carte, clean up the parts. The missing brake pads and holders… originals will cost more than complete calipers for example.

To complete the set you need a seat post, wheel hubs, head set and hoods. That might not be a fast and/or easy/cheap thing to do. I, personally, would go with previously offered advice - sell the components individually. There will, definitely, be more potential buyers, however; be prepared to invest more time to empty the stash.

I might add that, based on the first picture, the handlebar appears to be bent. Several similar damaged bars have come my way, over the years, including this lovely old map of England GB set, recovered from a Holdsworth Record that had, somehow, found its way into the dump...

I have the hubs, and also a Record seatpost for it.

Forgot about the hoods and brake shoes, not looking forward to finding replacements for those, but it sounds like it might not be worth it.

My thinking about not including a headset is that most frames come with a headset anyway, but maybe that's not what someone buying a "full group" is thinking. Hesitant to include the Record seatpost as well since who knows what size seatpost their frame takes (although the bottom bracket is BSC, so they probably want 27.2).

Sounds like I maybe sell the drivetrain as a partial group and the brakeset as a partial group. But what do I price for those? And do I include hubs, BB and Crankset with the drivetrain?
