I'm considering selling my old pre-Trek Bontrager Racelite steel frame which is built up with full '99 XT and has SID forks. It also has a Chris King No-threadset. It is a size "large". Bontrager Race Lite

I've no idea what the pricing would be for it. Could anyone give me any idea of where to start? It's an amazing frame in good nick, and a bit of a cult bike. Any advice much appreciated.
Nice frame; like the early box decals.
Not so nice together for the vintage prupose.
My suggestion: part it out. With a few more pics of the frame, with closeups of the tube joints and seat stays, it could get you $250, give or take $50.
The parts alone could get you about the same.
For a total of $500, give or take $100. Selling it complete, might be hard to break $400.
NOS no idea, but the colour limits the market.
About 2 days ago a used and ringed version went for about £60/£70 on ebay (have a search)
Doubt you'll find a new pair easily or used good condition in that colour.
Just run these singlespeed, more interesting than Middleburn
I second what Fluff wrote; condition is everything, and the color is more rare, which is both good and bad. Also, you won't find them again, in that condition and color.
Advice: Put it up for sale with a BIN, (Buy It Now), you will be very happy with, and run the auction repeatedly till the right buyer comes along, or you find use for them- which ever comes first.
On another note, thanks guys for the help with the pace fork.
