Still trying to get a feel for what I am doing with this, and to be honest would prefer something smaller in steel or titanium.

So how much in the UK do people reckon a medium Fat Chance Buckshaver frame and fork package would be worth?

The frame with a new FSA XLII 1" Ahead headset, used Control Tech 1" ahead stem with titanium hardware, and NOS Zoom lightweight Cro-Mo post, and old Rock Shox Judy XC 1" ahead forks. Frame has original seat clamp, and a purple binder bolt, and has it's original chainsuck plates.

Frame is well used, some scuffs and scrapes to the paint, I bought the forks from a forum member for £45 and they are well used, not been inside them but not too hopeful about condition of the internals and stantions, though the legs and crown are in very good condition (the forks seem to work ok though).

PS forks have titanium hardware too.

Thanks,
Steve

there have been several of these for sale on ebay over the last month; I've not found them to be nearly as valuable as the other fat city frames....yet, at the same time, I've seen a couple go for more than I expected. I would value it, if minty, at $300 (USD); maybe slightly less or slightly more. I've seen them go for as little as $200 or as much as $600...weird.

Ritchey Super Comp (posted by Waterman)



I have a super comp that I bought new.

It is almost all original, tires were changed to street tires and I put a "shark fin" protector on it.

It is painted red/white/blue fade.

Does anyone have any idea of the value? The condition is near new as I have hardly ridden it. I bought it and moved to the UK. It is still in Montreal, Canada. I am thinking of bringing it to the UK so I can enjoy it or selling.

Photo and specs can be seen at the oldmountainbikes website. The serial number is 90155.

Any help would be appreciated.

From Haggis:



Looking for some help lads. Been trying to sell my '07 cove hummer ti frame for a while to no avail. The '07 frame is exactly the same as the '08. It cost £1400 frame only I've put it up for £1000 with the hope headset, thomson post and XT f.mech. is this too much? its only done about £400 mile and is in 'as new' cond. Had a boy interested in frame only, how much should i offer it to him for frame only? Thanks in advance.

Hi i used to run a bike shop and was always selling things on for mates (and me).............i know some shops charge up to 30% to sell a bike for you which i think is criminal.....but maybe if your local shop is nice they may put it in the window ? for a small cut. Someone, somewhere will want it.
