Hi Sascha,

I do follow Panasonic on eBay.de closely and the 2 I saw last year went both for around 60 euros. Complete and to me they looked like in good to very good condition. Yes I know, ridiculous. Good bike with only quality components.

Some new old stock MC-Comp frames went also on eBay.de last year. Prices ranged from 20 to 55 euros. I bought 1 of those frames.

Maybe with this bike it is not so good idea to go the eBay route. Panasonic is not a regular search for most. I think there must be people out there willing to pay more than 60 euros.

Final note: Those 2 that sold through eBay sold already months ago. I have seen prices of much stuff and also of particular Japanese stuff increasing since than. Nevertheless we're still speaking of small amounts when it comes on MC-Comp's. Asure yourself you're selling to a dedicated enthousiast who really appreciates it. Maybe that's worth more.

Good luck selling. Hope it finds a good home.

Hi !

Thanks for your answer. I think i will keep the bike if there is noone who really wants this beauty.

My bike was driven by myself - so it has some marks. It was my first MTB and maybe i should keep it.

I will make some photos today and will post them if you want.

Thanks again for giving me an survey about my MC Comp.

Nice :) As I said, only quality components: Turbo, T-bone, DX...

About everything Japanese, except for seat.

I am wondering why yours has a intergrated seatclamp, while mine has a seperate piece. Another year maybe? Don't know. The tubing decal looks different too. Does it say Tange MTB OS still?

I think that for if it has to be suspension, the Tange is a good match. Not in colour, but it is Tange (like the tubing or the original fork), it is Japanese and it is sturdier than most suspension forks I think. The whole bike can be considered extremely durable.

I do not really like the piece to protect the rear mech. On all my Panas I took it off. It is also a pretty heavy piece I can tell.

Nice bike, as I said.

Ooooh, an e-stay is on my list of things to buy this year and that fits the bill perfectly!

If you still want to sell, can you PM me dime?

Thanks,

Russ.
