What should one expect to pay for a nice condition set of Shimano 600 tri-color 8sp derailers and friction/indexed bar-end shifters? Looks like ~1990 vintage.

The derailleurs can be had for pretty cheap, so the value driver here are shifters. Around $70-80 for everything if it's in pretty good shape.

I would push estimate higher as barcons tend to bring good $$. Maybe $100 for the three pieces.

I've got the front and rear derailers and the shifters. Maybe I'll just post them at $100 and see what happens.

What will happen is that you'll get less money than if you sold them separately. Most people won't be looking for a package deal, so you'll severely limit your potential buyers.
