I have discussed this with a fellow forum member but i'll pop the question here also.
I have a nice Yo Eddy '91 Aquafade, i have posted almost every step i made,..and i am sorry if it was to often, i appologize for this :oops:
But it had a bad start, with the whole KonaMad issue,...the bad taste in my mouth about this bike never went away,...it is just not my bike,...for some reason,..

But what is it worth?
I have paid a lot of money for the frame and even more for the matching fork and it has some nice gear

I prefer not to split the bike

to Defiant

I'd suggest you at LEAST take it for a spin before making a decision to sell it. Especially considering you put all that work and effort to getting the frame and building it up so nicely! Maybe that one turn around will warm your heart to the bike and free yourself of all that "bad taste" in your mouth?

If it was mine, i don't think i could part with it.

cheers and good luck with your decision!

I'm sad to read this, but can completely relate, except mine was with a certain sports car I had, that just seem to have bad mojo/karma/whathaveya.

Anyway, the only way you will get what you put into it, (and possibly more), is by parting it out on the bay. Otherwise, find a person on here who is familiar with the build and detail, and can appreciate it enough, to give you a good value for it.

At auction as a whole, it might pass the $1200 mark (us dollars). If you part it out, it should fetch you well over that...probably well over the $2000 mark if you have the right people watching your auction.

Hell, I have to clear out a lot, if you still have it once I'm through, I'll buy it....this is one my favorites on here....I love it for it's like of obvious bling....so tasteful, subtle, and fine.

i'd rate yours a bit higher as your revos seem to be in very good condition. is the paintjob a respray? if not i guess you could achieve up to 2000+ euros on ebay with a good listing.

I thought so...fade jobs like that are hard to replicate.

Any idea of the value of pair of 99 Manitou SX Carbon?

The fork are working fine and there are the usual marks due to a few years of use.

Thank you.

Just as a reference point it sold on ebay for £160

I have sat in my shed a 1991 (I think) Kona Lavadome and wonder what it was worth, if anything. It is as it came from the factory except the grips and the seat. It still has the original tyre with the Joe Murray decal on.

In reasonable condition, no massive chips or rust, not bent or broken. I think its a 19" frame.

Any idea of its value wold be appreciated.
