I have a GT Lightning titanium frame I am about to sell, it has no decals on it. I saw an 18" one go for £310 with decals on Ebay this week. Mine is 22" (yes really!).

Gil_m has estimated £20 for decals. Question is - is it worth getting decals done i.e. will it add more than £20 to value of an-decaled bike?

Another factor is being a titanium GT it is clear which model it is even without decals, so does it make a difference?

Any advice garetfully received.

Any offers for the frame too :D

I'd go for fitting the decals. The bike will look correct. As for the prices on the bay. As we have seen with good stuff one person pay £300 while the next sale for the same gets £200. A lotto :roll: Sorry not much help. Me i like buying stuff with the correct badges on.

Yes, definitely get the decals and the chance of getting more money increases lots.
