I have a Raleigh Summit in bits now, as I purchased a bigger frame and have transferred over some components.

I am not sure what to do with it now?

It's a 1993 Summit, 17" frame.

The original components on it are:
• Shimano Deore LX Front Mech
• Deore XT Thumbies, 3 and 7 Speed (But I like these and am probably going to use these on the new frame)
• Deore LX pedals, but the bearings are shot, they flop around a bit
• SLS Brake Levers
• Deore Cantilever Brakes
• Deore LX Chain Rings
• Zoom stem
• Rock Shox Mag10 (black with green stickers) brace is broken and they need a rebuild, service
• One original wheel and Hub (Front)


Replaced components are:
• FSA Pig headset, but have the original too
• Rear Mavic rim (Back) unknown model at this time, as it's buried in the garage somehwere!, which I had to replace the rear wheel when the hub seized solid, so my LBS fitted a new Deore hub and Mavic rim.
• The original Deore LX rear mech got a battering, so that was replaced with a newer LX model, but I am going to use that on the new frame.

So my question is, do I build it back to as it was before I started to change things on it a few years back, as I have all most of the original components, then sell on here as a project?

or

Do I sell all the components and frame separately?

I need to make a decision, as it's in my garage taking up space.

If you can make a complete near original bike and have the time I'd do that.
If it's already in bits and most of it's now missing or re used else where then you may as well sell it as is.

Digging up this thread, as I haven't done anything with it yet.

Anyone have a urge to rebuild this?
