Given the large size and condition, I'm thinking $400-ish. Worth more as a partout.

Wow, really? $400? I thought it was a pretty nice bike, but nowhere near as nice as this one (https://www.bikeforums.net/road-cycli...che-worth.html) - except for the higher grade material used for the main triangle (Cromoly on this one). And that one, NOS, is $300-350, so they say. Now, this one, it looks like it hasn't been responsibly taken care of, are you factoring that into your appraisal? It could be rusted on the inside.... looks rusted on the outside.

Go to ebay and look up sold prices on the Dura Ace AX Aero bits. Your eyes will look like an owl's, although the pricey seat post is MIA.

Toronto is a lofty market, but that's a tall frame for a heavily Asian market. Also, the front and rear wheels don't match. I'd start with a 50% offer. However I never make an inquiry on a wild overly optimistic seller.

He's been posting this bike forever. Last time I checked it was down to $650 and I can see he dropped another $50 recently.

As for Dura Ace AX - while I am no expert by any means I did check ebay for sold listings when this bike was first posted (many months ago) and read couple of site like disraeli and decided against buying it (especially considering frame size and overall rather poor condition). At $200-250 - may be.

This one is hard to value. AX can sell high because it's odd, but it has very limited appeal overall. The eBay prices mentioned above are also fantasy land ASKING prices. Parted out...yes, Ax can bring money, but it's also hard to sell. Overall - on CL - I think $450-$500, but somewhat variable.
