Let me be the first to say I have no clue what I'm doing and I'm almost certain I soon will be told there is some other post about this already, sorry in advance.

I saved a 2014 wethepeople arcade and 2014 fit vh1 from going to the rubbish tip.
The arcade I fixed up with just painting components, polishing chrome frame and a part from a new chain and countless hours its done.

My next challenge is the fit van hofman. This bike needs more, here's a quick, very rough estimate of what I think it will cost me, please correct me if I'm wrong. I hope I am.
2014 FIT VH1

Chain $15
Driver $50 - 80
Bb bearings $30 - 40
Maybe rear hub bearings $30 - 40
Handlebars $50 - 70
Grips $20
Headset $30

$220 - 295

Lucky to sell for $400

What do you all think, will it sell as parts or should I fix it ?

Not worth it if your buying new, but used and sale stuff, you could get for half that. Bearings are very cheap. Don't buy bmx stuff, just get the numbers off your bearings and search for that. Bearings shouldn't be more than $5 each.

grips more like 10 new, headset more like 15-20, bearings get cheap ones, bars buy them used and paint for probably like 30-40$, driver you should probably buy new
