Ok, rounded up some random things this week, what kind of values would we be talking? I have found my unicorn and am trying to figure out what is worth offloading to help fund it.

Near-NOS 3DV Controltech Easton bars, uncut, some marks from lever/grip install.
Set of NOS DX canti calipers in silver with no return spring hardware, NOS pads although one is different from the other 3 pads.
A NOS silver 1-1/8" quill ATAC, at a guess 150x10° rise, ' FTW design' decals lifting a little and some 'stem drawer' sort of wear, non-noodle.
NOS 1-1/4" 150x0° Controltech stem black, non-noodle, some decal wear.
NOS Offroad Pro-flex seatpost in silver, I would say it is for a 953, appears it may not even have been installed.
Grey Syncros cattlehead, 1-1/8" threadless, think its 110 with about 15° rise, decals have some wear, original box.
Polished Syncros Cattlehead, 1" threadless, 150x0° near mint.
Suntour XC Comp rear hub, used, some clear ano layer crazing but decal intact and freewheel/cones/bearings are good...definitely rider quality

Hi. I’ve got a 1993 16inch Specialized S. Works frame in purple/maroon fade built up with all the original period bits like Ritchey logic cranks and brakes, Mavic 531 hubs and M231 rims. Original XT headset and mechs, USE seat post etc. I stopped using it not long after I built it in the mid 90’s so it’s all in very good condition. I'm thinking about selling it.....how much for?

Evening all - quick appraisal please.

NOS Lotus Sport - been under a bedsheet since 1993 - never ridden.

Entry level bike from BITD from British Eagle but badged as a Lotus Sprint - Shimano Altus, a pretty simple machine but in unmarked condition.

Also a pair of NOS Vuelta Airline 1 wheels - Shimano Hubs / freebody.

Realistic sale prices for the above?

Cheers All

Do you have two Lotus bikes or is it just the one?

Bikes aren't mine, belong to a friend who knows little about bikes - I said i'd help him out so that he doesn't get taken for a ride (no pun intended).

There's a second bike that is under consideration but seller & buyer are a little way apart on value at the moment.

I have an original 1996 Orange P7 that I brought from new and was wondering how much it's worth as I currently have a two other MTBs to ride; a Viner VSC and Scott Scale 20. The Orange is a large, (21" I think) as I'm 6 ft 2 inches tall, and has all original components apart from the handlebar grips (which disintegrated), pedals and probably the inner tubes. The frame did have some surface rust (treated) but is in great condition although some of the lacquer has rubbed off. Can't add photos as the files are to big and don't know how to make smaller. Any suggestions?

Quick idea on price please, decider on whether or not to sell to make space

Kona Cindercone frame, triple butted P2 forks, control center headset, Velocity stem, kona dog collar, kona seatclamp, kona fork canti hanger, kalloy seatpost, orange alloy bolt highlights all over. recently powdercoated and new decals fitted over top.
frame is a saved one, has a couple of minor dings but you'd have to really look and has a derailleur saver fitted as the threads were stripped, all works good tho
?

could also go as the whole SS bike I guess, LX M560 on araya CV7, sugino cranks, SS5 levers, near new onza tyres, nice rhino cnc canti's with cnc shoes (real) ................
?

cheers

1995 GT RTS, Looking at possibly selling, i know things are only worth what someone is willing to pay but i would be interested in what anyone's thoughts are on value?

XT group set with LX front mech and hubs, Mavic SUP Ceramic rims, Rock Shox Judy SL's, i had the whole bike fixed up and replaced all bearings and any worn parts. its in really good shape for its age.
