It's 2x10, what size is it, or you (if it fits) you should really tooth count both front rings 52/39 or 50/34 etc and give rear range 11-?. Much life left in chain? are tyres good and what are they. Usually half of current retail price if current model is similar.

Looking for the lost chord.
£500 absolute max., depending on the quality if the respray (why was that done?) and put some logos on it. Otherwise £300.
Based on the assumption that you can prove that it was a Ribble to start with and that all the gear is close to new.

Shame you need to sell it.
Looks really cool in the black - very stealth like but I agree with others, I think the respray will have lowered the value and some may not believe that it is a ribble etc.

I have no idea on price. You could check comparable bike prices on gumtree etc and take it from there. If it doesn't sell you can always lower the price.

If you put it up on ebay you'd probably get something north of £300 for it, it's a common size so should sell reasonably quickly. With the current component shortage I suspect you'd get more if you stripped it and sold it for parts, at least £200 for the groupset alone based on a very quick look on ebay.

That being said the cost of selling it now might be never actually getting what the bike is worth to you in the intangibles - you hinted that you really like the bike, and given that you've spent time respraying and making it your own I think it would be hard to not feel regret in the future if you did sell it.

This could be a good route if you just need a few bucks. Sell a couple things but keep the bike, and when the money starts freeing up you've still got the bike to (re)complete
