Dated dia compe brake cables, found many, what to do?

I slap fell into a supply of hundreds of dia compe black brake cables.  They were in a warehouse that sold brakes for old school "rams horn handle bar" 10-speeds from the 80's, or so the guy told me.  What on earth do I do with these.  I know people want dated cables, they have month date and year and most seem from 83-86.   They look like they were made yesterday.  Its so odd seeing something nearly 30 years old that is in such pristine condition.   He also, in the same warehouse, sold a bunch of junk carny prizes so its been climate controlled for all these years.  I put one on my GT because I couldn't believe they'd still work as good as they looked, but Ill be damn they dol

The brakes were all one end of the bike (same end) so I also have a ton of silver orphan brake levers from dia compe.

I'm not much of a seller....what do i do with these.  (sell them...I know, but one at a time, idk know what they should be worth.  Any ideas.  I'm gonna post a pic when I get home.

Sell them through here first as people always need them - then when the demand drys up sell them in bulk on the bay.

I'll take a rear 83/84 if you can be bothered to dig one out!?!lollol


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
