80's Swinnerton Appraisal Needed.

I have a road frame from English builder Roy Swinnerton. The frame is made from Columbus Max tubing and has a chromed Power Fork that is also made from Columbus Max tubing.

I got a hold of Swinnerton and they said the bike was built for John Herety, former UK road racer, Tour De France rider and current Rapha-Condor-Sharp Team Manager, so there is some provenance here.

The only damage, besides scratched paint is a dent on the top tube (3rd pic) and some rust spots on the chrome which can be removed with 0000 steel wool.

1) What do you think a hand built Columbus Max frame and fork is worth?
2) What do you think it might be worth with a Dura-Ace 7800 group on it? (No idea on wheels yet)

Thanks for the input,
Ian
