Early 80's Raleigh Gran Sport Components - sell or donate?

I recently picked up a pristine early 80's Raleigh Gran Sport mixte and have converted it to a single cog.

I have the original brakes, pedals, kickstand, derailures, and shifters, all in new, unused condition.

These are fine quality Japan made components, with Raleigh stickers.

Any value for these, or should I donate?

I believe the bike was built by Panasonic.

Even with a fixed gear, I'd keep that front brake.

The stuff isn't worth a lot but it is worth something. If you pay $10 to become an upgraded member, you can sell the stuff in the C&V for sale forum. You can look at sales to get an idea of prices. Although you maximize your return by selling the parts separately, frankly I'd just sell it as a complete group at a price you think is fair. If no one bites, you can lower it until it sells.

I installed a Shimano sidepull, so the original front brake has been removed and goes with the other parts.
