Looking for an opinion on this piece of rare art :lol:

The sad remains of a scrap Manitou frame i bought for spares, front part of the main triangle was a total mess (cracked and welded to hell :cry: ), so i cut that off and tossed it (also curious to see how thick the alloy tubing really is, answer is roughly a Coke can :lol: ), the pivot at the BB is cracked so what you see is not suitable for spares.

Would £25 posted be fair ?

not sure on the above but I have an enquiry...

I have an LTS DH frame,

Bushings all shot, play and wobble in them
Super deluxe siezed solid
Octalink BB jammed in
Front mech cable stop damaged

Just wondering what anyone thinks re value.

Its a 1997 trunnion type, should I just persevere or flog it...

TBH paid over the odds in fleabay... :(

Tough one on the LTS DH, if it wasn't for the damaged cable stop and the stuck BB i'd have thought £100 - £140, but with those problems £60 ?

The LTS DH is a rare thing though, far rarer than the conventional LTS and the later DS, it was very expensive when new and sold as a frame kit only for around £1800 AFAIKR.

They can be rebuilt but they are not cheap, BETD do new bearing kits but last i heard it was £140 for the lot, TFTuned can rebuild the Super Delux for around £90 inc postage in the UK (a whack to the shaft with a mallet should free it off, internals will be shot anyway), i can say that they do ride very nice, i love mine, superb all round machine despite the DH tag, up to you if you want to rebuild it and keep it, if you can get the bottom bracket out, run it as a 1x8 or 9 so the cable stop wont be a problem, rebuild the shock and bushes it'd last for years 8)

Here are pictures of a 1996 Klein Attitude Comp I would like to sell for a friend. One owner, super clean, only will need pedals and a better seat (he changed out the original for more comfort and it's now shot). I listed all the parts in my first post on page 68-people wanted pics so here they are. In addition to the parts I listed in the previous post, it has a Smoke/Dart tire combo and what looks like Ringle QR on the wheels. What's it worth?

Very nice, looks mint 8) , i dont think the stem suits the build though, maybe a black Syncros to match the seatpost? but that's a detail.

Not a high dollar vintage Klein but a very nice machine all the same.

I'd expect maybe £550 - £600 for that.

I have an offroad sport bike and would like to know what it might be worth.
A friend put me onto this site.
I cant find anything about the particular model.
I have had it for around ten years and bought it used.
The frame is blue with Offroad and Sport on it.
There is a label on it that says "Guarenteed built with LT. WT. competition quality 4130 Butted 3 main tubes"
Another label says made in Taiwan
The forks are white and on each is "CR-MO 4130"
It has paddle type gears "STI Shimano total integration"
The flexstem just says on it "flexstem offroad"
The handlebar grips have a "Ritchey" logo indented in them.

You might be able to tell that I'm no expert.

It's not in mint condition some surface rust in a couple of places but looks restorable and it rides fine.

I'm hoping to be told it's very rare! but I would like to know how much it might be worth. I've bought a new bike so it has to go
Any advice welcome please.
I can post photos soon when I've wiped it down

Keep it and ride it Big Eck, but if your selling it put in the for sale section, this is the valuation section :wink:
