Absolutely NO Beryllium...jeeps the stuffs more toxic than a Fukushima Cafe sandwich.

Prices...we need prices ! No hypothetical...wet fingering guesswork..ebay listings no matter how old...are good, where two RBrs agree they did see such a price reached once...its good ;)

a NOS LMDS set would likely be £500 ish?
So a NOS Paul Powerglide f+r in 'Rasta' would be considerably more, especially if partnered with Proshift shifters @ £200 - £250.
...I'll let someone else estimate the Paul's 'Price'.

I’ve seen a King WTB headset that appears to have sold for $795 on Classic mtb trade center. A comment on the same post says they saw one sell for $950

$750 = £574

All ex-team or replica though aren’t they (or built using unused original tubesets etc)

Think Martin K said they were not safe to ride either + no ex Team Race bikes.


:shock: Umm....looks like a ‘we need a bigger boat’ rethink on final value of £20K

IRD seat posts go for a pretty penny - £300 or so the last one on here I think?

Butterscotch Onza Porc tyres. Last set on here was around £250 I think, and prices have gone up substantially on items like that of recent.

DD Pro rear wheel, on a suitable hub - £1250 for a NOS disk alone, fancy hub extra...

so i'm guessing we're talking about today's money and not BITD?

Kona Ti P2 forks go for high dollars. is the IRD Ti £850 a recent thing? :shock: as i didn't think they fetched THAT much.

Merlin ti bars are around the $200 USD range.

The current prices on WTB roller cams is about €750 each, so they must be on the list.

The IRD seat posts is more in the €150 bracket, 300 is a bit too much, I think. All of mine have been in that range recently anyways.

The regular IRD Macaroni stem is about € 500 these days, and the titanium version... I really don't know, but if someone wants to sell it to me I have a large sum of cash waiting for you... €1000 maybe?

The IRD ti-fork is in the €750 range recently.

Everything here is just in the "used" condition - If someone have this in NOS I guess the prices doubles or so?

IRD ti-bars would easily be €300-400, much rarer than Merlins.

Onzas are expensive, but I've seen NOS early 80s tires like Mitsoboshi Comp for €1200 a pair. Anything related to BMX is craaaaaaaaayzy.
