Another try with better photo's.

Can buy this bike but seller wants that I bid on it, so what do you think it is worth paying for.

Manitou FS 1993
Super condition with only a few miles on it

if frame and components are really in very good condition that bike might accieve around 1000euros on ebay. grafton brake levers, avid tri-align brakes asf. thats bling stuff at its best.
start negotiateing at 700Euros. good luck!

p.s. i would NEVER EVER buy any manitou frame without having inspected it myself. check EVERY weld especially bb area, headtube, swingarm and pivots!

I'm torn as to whether this should go here or not. Its not retro but this is 'the one and only" thread...

Anyway

About to buy an '09 Merlin Malt 2 17" to strip. What could I expect for the frame?

Not sure on price and looking to sell, so what do you think I should charge for red Chris King Ahead 1 1/4 inch?

top cap included? makes a very good impression on the pic, right?
around 80 euros. but don't put it on ebay. they tend to sell for less there. post it in for sales and wait...
