Just six? :?
I think a quick trawl of eBay might be your easiest option for that. Quarter of retail maybe?

I'll make a guess... Something like £200 as it's a little small and needs some tidying. Maybe more as probably rare in Europe.

A 1996 Kona Lava Dome is on my local Craig's List. I believe a small 14 inch. With P2 and originals specs.. but the saddle is a womens. The owner claims it is mint... but I can see cable rub, worn decal, a few scratches and rusty bolts.. He is asking $400. It has been listed for a few months.. with no takers.. What is a fair price?

Sounds a bit much to me. Is that about £300?

Maybe £100-£150 at the most?

Hi all, I have been doing a lot of research on an old 1935 Ladies CWS Co-op Bicycle (CWS badge riveted to the front) I have been given but I am not having much luck, All I do know is the above information and it also has W761 stamped on the frame below the Wright seat, the other information I can give is that it has rod brakes, original bell, original back reflector, single gear and also has veneer wood basket strapped on the front, all parts are freely moving but does need a restoration as has surface rust, I was wondering if this would have had a model name and is it something of value I should be putting on my insurance, Thank you for taking the time to read this and I really appreciate any advice that can be given, I have also got a few photos if anyone need to look at it, Best Regards Mark


My guess is anything from £20-£50 on ebay. There is a lot of work to do on it and in the end it's not anything exotic. It's a bit like restoring a Ford Prefect and not a Healey 100 (if you see what I mean). It's a fairly narrow enthusiast base who would want to spend time and £200 or so to restore a utility bike.
