Whad'ya think? I haven't even got a ballpark for this stuff, would like to shift the chainguide stuff as spares and the cranks are in pretty good nick. Would ebay garner better results do you think and is there a particular market i.e the states or germany that are building D/H retro rigs?

Ok I have asked this before, but still not sure what I should sell this for.

The frame is a Fat Chance Buckshaver size Medium 1997 model for V brakes. 1" headset, 29.4 seat post size, 68mm English thread BB size. RRP was £700 if I remember correct, this frame came from Bromley Bike's, bought by me around the end of 97 beginning of 98 I think.

It is currently sitting doing nothing and will probably continue to do so for some time, so I guess I will ask, what do such frames usually go for second hand?

Chainsuck plates are there, headset and seatpost would be included. There was a cable guide pully which I have lost! It was optional and gave the frame more options with front mechs, as in instead of the top pull cable route you could use a bottom cable route mech if it was all you had, I may have this in one of my many blue RS skips!

I could add 1" Judy's and a Control Tech stem for a little more cash.

Condition is good, a few bits of cable rub, scrapes and chips to the paint as to be expected with a used bike frame.

whole bike or just frame?
no estimations possible without pictures of the bike/frame itself.
endorphins are nice but not that sought after afaik.

thanks for those pics. they make it a lot easier...
well the buckshaver was the "cheapo" and the later fat chances are not that sought after (unless its a ti). nevertheless its a nice frame!
i guess you could achieve up to 250 euros on ebay with a proper listing and international shipping. i would not mention the zoom seatpost though as retrobikers tend to flee in horror at first sight ;)
