Bought new in 1994, fitted with full XTR, Rock shox SL's, Spinergy wheels, mint unmarked condition, never used, cost four grand to build, considering selling any ideas on a value, thanks

I bought my Vit T. frame only, used but in vgc for £250 almost two years ago. Not sure if that helps at all compared to a mint one but as usual with these things it's a case of getting someone who is willing to pay what you will accept so it's the length of a piece of string question really.

Size of frame may possibly make a difference though.

Are you saying you spent 4k on a bike 13 years ago and never used it? :? Or was that just the wheels unused?

Lordy that is nice - don't sell it you'll only regret it!

But if you are determined to sell, before anyone else says it and sad though it is, you'd probably get a better return by splitting it and selling as parts.

Did you decide how much you were going to sell it for?

I would not have thought of using that combo of parts but it works really well.

Can't really bring myself to part with the bike.

Would only sell it for silly money which I won't get anyway.

Thanks for replies.

Yep, keep it and ride it, you would only regret selling and then have devil's own job trying to recreate it
