First, what on earth is going on with your username :lol:

Not sure on the model, but must be higher end (Indian Fire Trail etc) if it has full XT. Forks are Manitou 2 or 3s, can be serviced and meant to be quite good. As a whole as it is about £100 I reckon, else sell it in bits and you'd get more - frame £40-50 maybe, forks £30-40, cranks £25, rear mech £15-20 etc etc

Dont skip it under any circumstance.

how much do these go for folks?

they are shockingly light, but not sure if they are of use on my build.


I don't believe those are the vintage Onza Ti that are sought after by many, raising it's price to 100 bucks at many auctions. Those look like the Onza CWA barends, which go for $25.

IF you weren't talking about the barends, sorry.

no idea, done a few searches and they are expensive for such a small piece of titanium i guess.

I have a British Eagle Shadow from around 1992. It spent 10 years in the shed after the birth of my son. I have had the bike refurbished and have used it twice a week for the last year on mostly back roads and trails. I now plan to upgrade to a hard tail and was wondering if there is a second hand market for my trusty shadow. It is regularly serviced and still looks great (some paint damage and loss of stickers). It has a reynolds 531 frame and the sticker is still in place for this.

Can anyone advise of how i can sell this and potential value.

Cheers

Iain

Quick photo update on my Dad's Marin IFT 1995. :) See what I mean about the frame? So much is oem though, 95% of it. :D

Hi Iain,
It'll probably fetch £50-100 depends on the groupset, a picture would really help. You could advertise it in the For Sale section on here (remember to state a price) or if you want to maximise the value then ebay with lots of pictures and a good description and be prepared to post it.
