Just putting out the feelers on this one lads !!

A reasonable sized job has just fallen through so I may have to sell this within the next couple of weeks !!! :cry:

Was just wondering what its worth really ??? Be realistic though please and not just a price you would like to pay for it !! If the feedback is not realistic, it'll only end up on Evilbay, but ide obviously rather it went to a good home on here !!! :wink:

Its Full XT throughout, period build etc... Condition is fantastic !! I love the ride of it but ive just got too many bikes and this being in my possesion the longest means it could be first in line to go !! :?

Cheers guys.

Del

Hello, my mum has finally lost her rag and has made me move this old bike out of her shed. This was my pride and job about 20 years ago - still good nick but not riden in over a decade.. Don't even really want much money for it just breaks my heart the idea of putting in a skip. Is there anyone interested in bikes like this, or should i just put in a skip?

How much for my GREEN michelin wildripper front?
I've been searching for ages for a rear one to match it but give up now so just gonna get a pair of black tyres. So I know how hard it is to get hold of these green tyres!

Tread not too badly worn...

Hi guys just been in the loft and dug out my wifes old klein.

It need a clean up before i put up pics but basically we'll be looking to sell the frame and what bits are left on it.

Its Orange frame with black rear swingarm.

Any way its got no forks and missing one of the v brake calipers. Other than that it is mainly XT with an XTR rear mech.

Didnt really know there was much of a retro scene till i read this months MBR

So roughly has any one any advice on the sort of price range a Mantra race frame will achieve?

Thats VeloManiacs dream bike :) (i'll alert him of this post), depends on what bits are available with the frame but bare frame only has to be worth at least £80-£100 if useable i.e good shock and bushes.

Hi chaps,
I've got a threaded 1 1\8th XTR headset here. No box but still wrapped up in plastic.
I bought the headset new in 97/98 (I think) as I was sure the headset on my GT Karakoram k2 would be on it's last legs as it was a few years old already.
Fast forward to 2010 and my GT still has it's original headset so I've decided to part with my "new" headset.
Just wondering what it might be worth before sticking it in the for sale section of this wonderful forum.

T.I.A

Michael.
