    I just broke down my old Colnago Super that I built up with a complete gruppo (excluding
    headset/seatpost) of Shimano 600 Ultegra in 1990, which as far as I know was the first year of the
    Ultegra designation when they came out with the 7 speed in gray paint finish.

    I left the wheels (Campy Delta clinchers) built up on the 600 Ultegra hubs and everything is in very
    good condition. The set includes an Italian bb typical for Colnago (70mm shell), fd, rd, brakes,
    levers, downtube shifters, hubs, cranks (170, I believe). If I hadn't decided to just do a complete
    restoration on the Colnago, I would have replaced the chainrings and rear cassette, as they've seen
    a good number of miles since their last replacement.

    In addition to the original Ultegra downtube shifters, I eventually upgraded to RSX 7sp STI levers
    which I've used on a double ring set up, but are triple compatible. These are top notch.

    Anyhow, before I put the whole set up on RoadBike Review classifieds or Ebay or something, I was
    wondering what some of you would think may be a ball-park price for the complete set? I know it'd be
    helpful to see some pics, but I haven't been able to borrow a digital camera just yet for that
    purpose just yet.

    From what I've seen for some items, I think I may do better to part it out and sell off the
    components individually. For example, the RSX 7sp are pretty hard to find and look to fetch
    somewhere around $100 alone.

    Recommendations are welcome. I would just like to get the best I can for these things as well as
    find a good home for this stuff.

    In general, when selling used parts on eBay, it is better to sell items individually except for
    those which are typically only sold together. I've noticed that quite often, a big pile of good used
    stuff on eBay will bring less than the individual pieces would have; after all someone shopping for
    used parts is probably looking to repair a specific failure, not upgrade a whole bike.

    That said, it's important to remember that the task of composing a good, effective listing is not a
    one-minute process, either; something that won't sell for more than $5 in any event is probably best
    tossed in with an appropriate other item.
