1995 Colnago Tecnos

I need to make room for a new project and am trying to decide what has to go. I've had this for several years and have seen some pretty wildly varying prices for steel Colnagos. Any idea what a reasonable asking price for this would be?

1995 Colnago Tecnos size 58 (58cm seat-tube c-t, 56.5cm top tube c-c), Columbus Tecnos steel, basically shaped Nivacrom tubes (no stickers - they were there when I bought the bike, but have long since flaked off).
Campagnolo eight-speed gruppo
  • Chorus: headset, bb, cranks (53/39t), FD
  • Athena: RD
  • Record: shifters, cassette (13-26t) (I also have an 11-23t cassette that I would throw in)
Profile handlebars, 44cm (don't know the model)
Deda Murex quill stem (90mm - but I could throw in a 120mm Coda quill stem)
Deda RS01 seatpost
Selle Italia SL kit carbonio flow saddle
Wheels: Campagnolo Chorus hubs (32h) laced to Mavic Open CD (front) and Campagnolo Omega (rear) rims.
Tires: Continental GP4000s with about 2500 miles on them.

Everything works wonderfully. There are a few chips in the paint and blemishes in the chrome. There is also some surface rust on the non-drive-side chainstay, all seen in the pictures.

Apparently the pictures are too big to upload here. You can see them on Flickr at the link below:

I don't know. I've seen immaculate frames go for $1200 and beat up ones go for $200. Mine's certainly not immaculate, but it's in good shape. So, it falls somewhere in that $1000 spread. Same for the components. Everything works well, but the cranks are pretty scuffed up - you can't read "Campagnolo" on them any more and I think for a lot of people that's a drawback. I had to change out the original brifters for these, which have recently been rebuilt.
In short, it's not a show bike and I know I couldn't ask a show bike price. I just don't know what a good price for a solid working machine is. I bought it used in 2002 for $800 and have spent at least as much keeping it maintained. I might decide to keep it, but having built three new bikes for myself and my wife in the last two years, I'd have to add on to my shed.
