I see some of these internet deals for nicely equiped no-name bikes (e.g. Scattante and Tommaso) and it seems like in some cases the components alone are worth more than the asking price. I'm wondering if any of you have ever purchased one just for the components to build another bike?

For example, this 2007 Tommaso Velocita with mostly Ultegra and similar quality parts is $1,039:

I haven't priced out every component, but it seems like you would have to pay more than that if you're buying the parts without a frame. So if I'm getting a custom frame and building a bike myself, any reason I shouldn't buy a Tommaso Velocite, strip off the parts and toss the frame (or get whatever I can for it on Craig's List)? Am I missing something here? (wouldn't be the first time)
