It's a Marin, do you know which model?
Also listing the parts on it will help value it.
Th stem looks like a Specialized titanium, but probably Marin!

Sorry if I didn't make it clear - think its a Nail Trail, 1996 - all stock parts on it except for seat post clamp and saddle. So is fairly basic build

I think I'd agree with coomber, £120 would be ok. In all honesty it's probably only the forks that are worth much. The Flite saddles go for £20-30 but in good condition.
Maybe upto £150?

Here's my 1998 GT LTS 3000 DS


As for aftermarket parts it has a Marzocchi Bomber Z3 Fork and unknown handlebars,

Bike rides like a champ though and if anyone is selling a rear shock for this bike please PM me :wink:

How much do you guys think it's worth? I payed $200 US dollars and it didn't have any cosmetic damage.

Early Hope Mechanical Disc Brake including the mountain bracket for Girvin Forks. Paired with a Red Suspension Hope Hub laced to Mavic 117 Ceramic SUP Rim.

Any ideas on what this is worth?

I have a Parkpre pro elite 95 17" model and a Specialized M2 Team Edition 16" 1993

The Parkpre is in excellent condition and is XT, puls star hubs, Rock Shox Judy XC, Critical Racing Brakes, Parkpre seat, seat post, bars stem. This is a bulk standard bike that I bought and hardly used.

The M2 is one of 2 I owned, one was my race bike and the one I still own was my trail bike. The M2 is also in good condition for its age and is XT, Specialized M2 braced future Shox's, topline cranks, Puls Star Hubs, ITM TI stem, WCS Bars, Use seat post, grip shifts, Mythos saddle, Pace rings.

I am looking to sell both of these as I don't use. What sort of price are these worth.

I am based in UK (south wales)

I posted in the chat forum a few weeks ago regarding this Grove innovations amp frame. I'm thinking about selling it and would be grateful for thoughts on its value. As you can see from the pics, the paint job has lots of signs of use. I rode the bike in central PA from about 1996 to 2001. Aside from the paint, it has three small issues that would need to be fixed during restoration: one of the "bushings" at the rear dropout is not original; one of the allen bolts holding the shock in the amp rear end broke off, so this would need to be re-tapped; and the risse air shock has a bad rubber seal that needs to be replaced (the shock is nearly new though). Otherwise, the frame is in decent shape, with very little signs of rust internally and the bb threads are in good shape. The frame was stored in a dehumidified basement for the past decade.

I have my own idea, but what do you think I can get for this:


Hand built 1992 Cougar MTB frame, 17" seat tube, fillet brazed frame and fork with some lug work, Mavic headset, Suntour XC Pro 7 speed non-MD grouppo inc seat post and pedals, Specialized stem, Araya RM17 rims on Suntour XC Pro screw-on hubs (not the wheels shown), NOS XC Pro BB, NOS Ritchey tyres, new brake pads, cables, tubes, grips, not that saddle! (I appreciate it is worth more split!).

I have a GT Karakoram Elite I bought new in 1993 in Germany. It still looks almost as good as new - no damage, blemishes, works as it should. I wonder how much was it worth - if I get enough I might sell it and regret it immediately. The only things not original are the grips, saddle (Brooks) - I threw away the original one last year (was still new), the brake pads, the tires - please excuse the rack - will be removed... there is one on e-bay and it is priced at 800$ - that's a bit high for my taste. What would be a realistic price and is there a market for vintage GTs?
