600 arabesque group - value?

Ive got a nice but low value frame that has been waiting for a groupset for some time and I am tempted by this on my local auction site. It is age appropriate but not 600 complete and I am unsure of the value. To me $120 (about $105 USD) seems a bit much for a mixed group but my frame just wants some components! Please help!

About $100-120 on ebay. But you would do better selling the parts individually. For example the seatpost is worth about $30 and 25 for the levers with furrels. Sold local on CL you will be lucky to get $60. You could also sell them here for a small subcription in the vintage for sale trade section and get close to value.

In this case, the OP is buying not selling. While not a steal, the parts look fairly clean and should be serviceable for a long while. I think it is fairly priced at about $100 US.

Well either way it is a close call indy those parts are worth more than the asking price. Yet a full bike with equell or better stuff is not out of the realm of $200.

Close enough. Negotiate as much as you can, maybe even fake a "walk away" but I would buy it if I needed it.
