If i we`re to sell do you guys think it`s worth selling the forks seperatly to the frame as the forks are worth say £200 and frame maybe £300,but to sell together maybe only worth £400-£450,any ideas pleaase as my minds set on it now :(

You'd maximise money by splitting but if you want max profit then eBay with worldwide shipping would be your friend. That said it seems a shame to split when they go together so well...

For what it's worth about 12 months ago I paid £425 collected for an L Yo frame with original paint and colour matched BOI fork in great condition plus a Chris King headset.

You'd be very lucky to get £300 for that frame - good as the repair is this will only hurt the value.

Are the forks actually BOI or are they Yo forks?


If you want maximum profit stick in on ebay and list it in auction watch.
This site is intended to be a community for fans of vintage/retro bikes - seems poor form to be hoping to get maximum money for something off a fellow site member AND be asking about it.

Now that was funny! Maybe it's worth 6k because it climbs bread? ("pure bread climbing machine") My bikes don't climb bread. They climb hills and then I eat the bread! :D

I fail to see your point john i was just asking what the community thought it was worth,thought this was the idea of this thread,it will go on ebay but i will if allowed also stick it on the for sale section,if i can,so some one in the community can have a pop before ebay
I was not trying to rip anyone of thats why i asked the question

and yes they are BOI as the OD of the legs are 1" and its a 1996

For what it's worth I wasn't accusing you of trying to rip people off.
