Hello! Just about to 'upgrade' to a newer bike. Any thoughts on value (if any) for these two?

1) Marin Mount Vision 1997.

And

2) A 1996 (been told it could be '94) Saracen Kili Comp:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=141962

Again everything in full working order and very well looked after. Repainted, average paintwork, but frame in excellent condition (no dents or cracks). Current spec:

Forks: Pace RC-35 Monobox (elastomer, c.1995)
Brakes: F: Hope Hydro 155mm, R: Hope Hydro 155mm with torque arm (1997)
Hubs: Hope Titanium
Rims: Mavic X317 DISC
Seatpost: USE Aluminium
Bars: Easton EA30
Grips: ODI Lock-On
Seat: WTB

The saracen for reference would be worth about £200 with that spec I'd say. I paid £50 for my frame which was in good nick, so using that as a basis and hte parts I'd say my guess is about right. Might make more splitting, that disc converter usually makes £20-30 on its own.

Just seen the kili build thread and with those bits Iwould say more like £200-250. It looks really nice.

I don't really want to sell this but I may have to so what do you think a mint, NOS AMP MB4 Frame is worth? with a matching Amp fork?

Going down the Kona route for the first time so need to make some room.

Prefer not to split as I think it looks quite nice, took a while to get the bits together and it is a really good ride.

Looking for advice on selling this GT Pantera, not sure of year but around 95ish.

All original LX, needs a bit of work to get fully operational. 5p size scuff on top tube (just visible), otherwise just usual cable wear (top of fork etc). Bars and pedals need replaced due to rust.

Also got a Saracen Rufftrax if anyone's desperate for one. Pic to follow.

Sorry for missing out others, I can only advise my 2ps worth on what I know.

The pantera is a lot older than 1995 as it has U brakes. I'd guess at 1990 or 1991. Looks in ok condition from that pic but if rust on bars etc will take some monetary value away. I'd ballpark it in the £100-120 category.

The rufftrax will be about £40 unless a minter. Regardless of the year.

Are you sure? In 90/91 I had a Saracen Sahara (yellow), then a couple of years later bought an Orange Clockwork which I had for ages (and wish I never snapped in two!). I'm sure I had that at the time my Dad bought this GT for himself.

I might be wrong but it must be closer to 95 than 90 (unless it had been sitting in the shop for years...). Not that it matters much to me now, but it would be good to nail it before I get rid.

Thanks though, I'm gonna try find some more info to be sure.

edit: just saw another thread and it seems it's 1992 or so, so somewhere inbetween.
