Best place to get rid of excess gear ( international )

Postby toolonglegs » Mon Nov 12, 2012 10:05 pm

Hello :P ... where would you get rid of excess retro gear to get the best price?... sort of talking international here seeing that I am in France. I could post on the boards here but AU $50-60 for postage on a groupset etc would be a bit of a killer.
Is ebay still the best place or is there better places ?... talking about a full DuraAce ex group and partial 600 arab group in imaculate condition.

Tease! What price you after for the Arabesque? And what components? LFGSS cats know their prices, but if you are after the moolah, eBay US is the one. US prices for Arabesque is pretty good if you are selling. Do a search on completed listings to work out the prices

These are the two groups...
I was thinking UK ebay but maybe US would be better, not sure what I would ask for them.

From what I've sold, bought & seen on ebay, splitting the group will bring more rewards.

Yeah might be the way to go.
Shame to split up the DuraAce group though... really wanted to build up a bike with that but as I would probably try racing it, it would get trashed. Maybe put it in a box for a few years :lol: .

That's nice enough to whack in a glass case, on perspex stands!

How does Au $ 200 plus postage sound?... postage would be 53€ (Au $65 ) as it will be about 2.5kgs.

Cranks, rings and bb are in near immaculate condition... the bb is missing the non driveside cup though.
Brake calipers are in similar condition.
Levers are in very good condition...some small scratches on one but easily polished out. The hoods are original and intact and still nice and soft.
Both derailleurs are in very good condition.
Shifters are NOS.
Also a NOS cable & mounting set.
Plus I can throw in a good condition 600 head set if you want it ( to sweeten the deal :D ).
Let me know if you want to see close up pics.

Hi all
For those who might be interested I am selling a very similar dura ace group at the moment in the classified section .
Happy to negotiate on price and it is in very good shape !

600 stuff is sold and received by a very happy Australian buyer :-) .
Maybe I will put the rest of the stuff on here as it was easier than eBay etc!.
Plus I have a nice Cinelli frame with 600 gear sitting in western Sydney that I don't think I will ever get to ride.

Yeah it's a 60 or 62 cm ... can't remember. Never actually seen it in the flesh as I bought it thinking I was coming back to Oz... that's unlikely for at least a few years now.

Any chance you have some pictures on your computer of the Cinelli frame?
