Good buy @ $350?

I have an opportunity to buy a Viner Deda V3 Pro Team road bike for $350, (maybe a bit less).
This will be for resale, possibly as separate parts as I think the bike is a hodgepodge of different era parts.

There is a Dura-Ace 7400 rear derailleur, Shimano 600 headset, Brifters (7/8/9 speed??), carbon fork, Different Dura-Ace brakes...

The wheels look interesting, but I have no idea the make. People are saking between $300 and $700 for these Pro Team frames.
How accurate is this? Is this bike worth more than $350 together or separate?

Thanks,
Ian

I would consider it at 350$ myself, but would have to think if flipping. Figure 150/200 for the frame. 3/700 for a frame seems wishful to me. I would snatch it at 350 as a rider. I do think you'd make money back.

Keep in mind Viner is not as well known as other brands, and lacks the name recognition of a Colnago or Pinarello. I have one from the eighties; it is a very well crafted bike but I do not believe the frame alone is worth as much (or even close to) a period Colnago-- despite the Viner's workmanship being noticably better.

Yup, fantastic deal. It would sell for $600 here in Toronto within an afternoon.

+1, it's a great deal. That's 8 speed Dura-Ace, circa 1991-1996. Just make sure the brifters are still in good working order as they're not interchangeable with 8 speed non-Dura-Ace brifters.
