Never done this before but i've made my mind up now somethings got to go and it looks like it could be the Bravado,

Condition is good i would say, There are some paint chips and chainslap that have been touched in with a slightly wrong shade of yellow, There's some decal damage that has been touched up, It could do with a new headtube decal, I think that's pretty much it

It doesn't have the carbon seat or onza bar ends anymore and it has a Control Tech stem instead of the flip flop pictured. (But it will come with the original flip flop stem and bar ends)

So the big Q is what's it worth, Only gauging interest at the moment as ive no idea what its value is, but i do know they are quite rare and not many about.

machine tech stuff, and in that great condition, always does well at auction. It does not come up often, so it's difficult to say. Last year I was bidding on machine tech rear hub in used condition with some wear, and it went for over $90 usd.

That's nice. The real market value would be hard to gauge due to it being rarely seen on ebay or in forums. I'd suggest placing a high reserve, and giving it a 10 day auction on ebay to see where it ends up. It's like paying for an appraisal. I'd be curious to see what it goes for. Good luck.
