selling 78 paramount

I'm looking to sell my near mint 78 paramount 63cm. pretty big frame. Would I be better off parting it out? Components are campy nuovo record, Cinnelli. The bits are all in perfect condition including a like new 78 brooks pro saddle. Frame has only a few minor paint chips.

Tall guys get the deals.
I would review the prices of the components on ebay, consider your time, tools and ability and decide on a value a la carte.
Then place the bike on ebay, buy it now or best offer, see if your price can be met.
Do consider the time involved, and small parts are easier to ship including the frame vs. a whole big bike.
Wheels will go for the value of the hubs, just how the market is.
If you do not have the tools, (if you are the original owner, the dealer should have given you a tool kit that allows taking the cranks off) Freewheel, headset and fixed cup will need to be done by others or sold with the frame. (not a bad idea)
$700ish I would think, if great images and two who really want it at the same time, up to $1,000. You did not mention the model it was, not wheel type and size, discount if it has 27" clinchers for the whole bike.

It is a touring model-P10. 27" campy record hubs, weinman clincher hoops, plenty of tools/experience to dismantle.
I could strip it in very little time, but kinda hate to based on the condition of the frame.

I'd feel bad stripping a perfectly good bike, so I'd sell it complete. Plus it'll be less of a pain that way.

Pictures? Don't expect any money for it on craigslist/ebay/etc. without lots of hi-res photos.
