I think you may have more luck parting it out, most of the 'fixie' crowd would want to customise themselves, so buying one all done at higher price may seem abit of a turn off.
just my 2c
the only thing you did was bolt different parts onto a production bike. The only custom part is making your wallet empty. It's a used bike.
Fwiw my cousin Mario spent $25,000 customising his Mitsubishi Cordia Turbo and he's selling it for $8,000. I still tell him he's dreaming

Actually it has less than 5km's on it...literally. So as close to new as you you can get without buying of the shop floor. It was more a building and maintenance learning process, and I very quickly discovered A. the frame is too small for me, and B. the single speed thing is probably not for me either.
So whilst i may lose some value on the parts, I enjoyed the build exxperience. I would prefer to move it on to someone who may enjoy it, but if not i can probably separate again and sell parts...
Either way you look at it it's not easy selling a used bike, especially if you've built it according to your wishes.
Sell it as a whole and lose the coin or part it up and recover more of your costs but spend a lot of time on 15 or 20 different transactions.
... Hope you got something close to what you are after. It's always hard to see things go for less than what they are worth. But I guess the intrinsic value of a Madison would have been your handbrake in this case!
It went for a bit less than i wanted, and less than all part costs, but at least its sold and i didn't have to part it up and go through multiple transactions... So the guy that bought it has an awesome value bit of kit on his hands now... and I need to learn to stopping spending so much money on bikes!
The madison cromo track frame I think was one of the nicest parts of the bike.
Will put the proceeds towards my MTB upgrade
