Dura Ace components value?

Does anybody know if these Dura Ace components are good and do they have significant value?
Thank you in advance for any input here.

Yes, Dura Ace does have some resale value. You might get $100 for the shifters and $50 for the brakes if they are in very good condition.

Price fluctuation is immense , if they are dirty and you can not see the actual condition expect the low end of what you see on completed listings , that was a honest assessment of what to expect. Sorry for not sugar coating it.

Well, he does have a point.

However, I've been surprised on many occasions on how well DA stuff from that 7403 era cleans up. Quality finish that's very durable.
If the levers are rash-free, the hoods complete & intact and the faces not all smashed up, worth a half hour to clean them properly.
Same with the brakes- they're dirty but the shoes look hardly worn.
Came on a quality frame that looks to be in good condition, so you may be able to move those parts.

I do apologize for the poor pictures. But thanks too all for the information. I bought this HH and was told the value is in the components. So am asking for if I do get a chance to trade up I kind of know what I have here. I am told the titanium glue and screw frame is not a hot item. But really it is an upgrade from my Schwinn Super La Tour II as I am planning to ride more this summer. No real plans to trade up quite yet but I know how it goes with equipment. Here is a picture of the Havnoonian. Again sorry for the poor quality picture and I do need to clean the bike up.

you have a beautiful bike. very unusual wishbone seatstays.

glued frames do concern me, but there are many on these forums who do own them.

i'm thinking this is probably one of those rare instances where if you sold the whole thing together, you'd make more than just parting out. the componenets are worth something, but if you just sold the bare frame you might not get much for it.

it would probably sell for $400-600 where im at. i say that because i have seen a similar bike on my local cl sit for awhile at $700, he lowered it to $600 and then the ad was taken down (pressumably because it was sold).

This confirms I probably paid right a market price for this bike. This is good to know. Thank you for the valuable input. This is a great forum.

Well I have found most of the 7000+ Dura Ace stuff to be great components that function last well and clean up real nice basically the best finish on the market for the last 20years. The only draw back is some models series where DA series specific. They all seem to do great on Ebay cleaned and well presented I would guess $75-150 on the shifters depending on actual model and condition and $50 or so on the brakes.

Although this has been mentioned, I'm going to beat a dead horse a little more and stress that cleanliness and photo quality are everything in an ebay sale. If I can't discern the condition due to crappy photos I assume the worst and bid low. Check SOLD ebay listings for the specific parts you have to determine value. I'd agree with at least $50 on the brakes and well over $100 on the shifters assuming good presentation and condition. The crankset + BB is another $100 and the maybe $20 for the FD and $30 for the RD. Those are just rough guesses.
