Looks like I might have a buyer for my bike, but need to value it, and as I don't have much experience with retro prices.

It's this one I'd like a value for please:

Much appreciated. Honesty most welcome. :D

Full XT 737, Middleburn RS1's, Answer Hyperlites, Hope on 517 ceramics, Ringle headset/stem/seatpost.

If you split it down would you be happy with less than £600?

It could even be worth £800 in parts on a good (ebay) day.

Even those are based on a rather conservative estimate of the frame value.

I love it and looked at your ad, but thought you'd be rather insulted by what i could afford to offer :)

to be honest, I'd be ecstatic if someone offered me £500 for the complete bike!

I agree, but surely your strategy depends on the condition of the parts, which you haven't said. Seems to me if very good or excellent, then their eBay value might be held back by the age of the f/f and it might be better to split it up. If condition of parts only 'good', then £500 would be a lot, (nice as it is!)
