Hi,

I've found an old stump jumper from late 80's / early 90's that I want to buy.

Good bits are Shimano Xt everything and pace forks. Wheels are cheap replacements however. Overall condition a bit tired and tatty but ultimately sound. No pictures unfortunately.

How much should I offer the owner? What is a fair price?

Plan would be to rebuild it to single speed selling off the XT bits I don't need. So want something light and strong.

Thanks.


£150-£200 if the forks work.

Go on then. How much for a minty pair of 1995 RC35 MXCDs chaps..?

There's barely a mark on them. 1.1/8th threadless steerer approx. 200-210mm long.

I had a figure of £110 posted in mind so we'll see how it goes. If they're as mint as they look in the photos then I think they're worth the top end ;)

Ahh...thanks but I should have said the forks are rigid. So RC30/31??

Was thinking ~£100?

First time I gone the retro bike route.

Which ones are they?
In very good condition RC31 can go for up to £120 RC31 Ti £150
RC30 are more like £100 I think (don't often see them), considering the age of the bike I think it'll be 1" RC30.

not sure but if you want top dollar would ebay not be your friend?

If not, what did you pay for it and getting it to its current condition? Add a reasonable profit margin and set the price yourself?
