I would be very surprised if you get 200 euros for it .

I bought my Reflex for 50 euros .

£62,00 :oops:
ok, i was totaly off. but i think its quite hard to sell frames when based in the UK. shipping costs of ~50GBP put people on the continent off. when watching ebay.de you rarely see a high end "golden era retro" frame end for <80 euros.
regarding shipping - thanks to austrian postal service i can ship frames to the uk or germany for 20 euros!

depends very much on the condition of the frame. although a component listing would be nice too.
you remember that ritchey that was sold here ~ half a year ago with the rusted through chain stays? examin the frame youself and take your time.
the components i can make up are kooka cranks, ritchey hubs, rims, seatpost and stem? sram shifters, f-, r-derailleurs?
if the frames condition is good i'd start with 400euros and raise up to ~700euros depending on the sellers knowledge of the bike (if he knows its a cool one he'll laugh about 400 if he just thinks its an old hardtail you might be licky). guess it would go for more on ebay (depending on listing and shipping costs).

its not the big money seat post because its late 90ees california syncros. the early 90ees ones tend to get you more.

Again, i'm sorry I don't have better pictures but a general price range would be nice:

depends heavily on how you sell it. good listing, proper time, low shipping charges and luck and you get 1200euros on ebay for the frameset.
if you want to sell it quickly and without much work 800euros should be achievable.

hmmmm... that will be a tough negotiation then. does he know about the retro thingy and is he aware that you are bike-nuts (like me)?
