Found buried in parents garage..any help on value- Vitus Carbone 3

Parents finally moving and Ihad forgotten I had this buried in there.
58 CM Vitus Carbone 3 frame with original fork, front and rear derailleurs.
Still looking for the bars...
Just wondering if these are worth anything nowadays or worth rebuilding...

Yes, pics....because outward condition can give a good idea if the bike is even still safe to ride and "sellable"....
Otherwise, I think, a Vitus Carbone 3 frameset in perfect, mint condition, I think, can sell up to around 300 bucks max to someone really looking for one, but most likely more like $250 on most days.
People tend to pay more (up to 350 bucks max) for mint or NOS Carbone7 and 9 frames (which are actually identical to each other), as the rear triangle is also built with CF tubing.
C&V CF frames are starting to get more attention in the C&V/collector market as people continue to realize that not all of them are the asploding time bombs that people had made them up to be since they first came out. But the slightest hint of problems with the glue joints or even just any damage to the surface finish on the CF tubes, drops the price on them drastically, or they don't even sell at all at any price.
