Value of 1988 Bridgestone Radac 3000 with full Sante or Value of the group itself

Anybody have any experience with the aluminum Bridgestones? They didn't stick around long so that leads me to believe they weren't that great. However, the Sante stuff is pretty desirable right?

I can get a 21" complete 88 Radac 3000 in what looks like decent shape for $250... an OK keeper price but too high to flip right?

Any idea what a full Sante group is worth by itself if the frame turns out to be a turd?

Everything depends on condition. Price is too high to flip as a complete bike IMHO. Sante group complete in excellent condition should bring $250 to $350 on ebay, with typical ebay high variance. If the frame is in mediocre condition, then the components will probably be in that same condition. Unfortunately, Sante parts are vulnerable to being scraped up (not that durable).

So if everything is pristine, could have decent value in a part out situation. But you will have the various hassles of ebay: variance in bidding, shipping, handling, all of the ebay fees, etc. Done right, you could be getting the frame for free.

You are in Boston, where the market is higher, so you might be able to flip locally and make a decent return.
