There was an ovalised tubed cromo Emmelle but it rode a bit wanky - its a bike, if it can be ridden then it is worth something to someone.

They would look nice on the green Brodie frame I've got coming... I wonder what the selling price will be?

I just got $130 for my yellow turbine crankarms but they were older, in basically new condition and square taper. To me the isis drive is a big hit to value. I would think you could get $80 or so for them. This is just a guess of course.

I've got an 18" 1998 Kona Kula frame only.

Its had a recent powder coat in orange but needs proper decals, has tiny amount of chain-suck on the powder coat.

No dents or cracks, Easton Elite alloy, 18", still has its UN-52 in the BB shell, very light frame.


Has anyone got a rough idea of price, Kula's seem to be forgotten about really. They used to come with lots of XTR and £1600 price tags.
