198? Miele Uno 12

I've had this bike for a couple of years now.
Got it from my grandparent's shed in Windsor, Ontario.
Thought it was originally my uncle's but it turns out it was my aunt's and she got it around 86' or 87'.
Not sure of the exact year.
It's an entry level bike, but the group isn't bad for it being entry level, and it rides well.

It has a Sugino crankset, Shimano 105 front/rear derailleurs, Shimano 105 shifters, Nitto handlebar, Cro Mo 4130 Frame, platform pedals, alloy rims and 27x1 1/8" tires. Not sure of the seat or seat post, although seat is made in Taiwan and old faded suede.

Worst thing about this bike is that the frame has a small crink in the down tube in front of the shifters. The top tube also has a small bend, just enough to notice. On the positive side, the down tube hasn't perforated, and there is no vibration as I had the fork adjusted to compensate for the small bend. There's a picture of it included. Brakes squeak a little but work well, the wheels are trued and the tires hold air.

How much do you think it will sell for around Ann Arbor, Michigan?

So you think I should take it apart and sell it piece by piece on CL or sell it as a whole?
