What's This Worth?

I've got this and was wondering if it is worth anything and if so, what?
The frame is Vitus 888, Brakes are Modolo(Professional I think), chainset and derailleurs are Shimano Dura-Ace. It's a Motobecane from the early 80s. Any ideas? 4535711932_be0bb57bdb_t.jpg

    Photo is too small to determine condition which will have a big impact on value. If the components are in very good condition, you may get more by splitting the parts, otherwise going rate for a bike of this vintage is £250-500. Vitus 888 is not a common tubeset and is fairly heavy even for steel tubesets.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Hope these are of a better quality to make a judgement on.

    Ps check out ebay for past prices made by some of the parts .Search by maker and model,you maybe amazed at some of the prices paid for early Dura Ace components :shock: .
