OK, not much feedback on the whole bike, how much is a Suntour XC Pro Groupset in excellent condition worth?
See http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=264819
for pics and details.
I assume the Panaracer Smoke Lite tyres have some value too?
And the other bits?
The $3000 USD price, you mentioned, is a joke. It will be hard pressed to get 10% of that asking price. $300 - $500 USD is a better expectation range, and that's due to the nice xc pro parts, that look like they have little use. The parts, themselves, aside from the rusty bolts, would make a nice groupset, and probably bring close to as much, as the bike as a whole. Then the leftover frame, would not bring much more. So spitting it, might not be worth the hassle.
Being that it was a donation, put it on ebay, for a 30 day BIN or best offer auction, with an asking price of $500 USD (highest you could possible get for this bike imho), with best offer option. See what type of offers you get, and take the one you like best.
