Hi, any ideas how old this frame is and whether its worth breaking down and selling the bits ?
I built it up from the frame that was knocking about in a bike shop i used to work in about, ive had it about 18 years or so !.
The wheels I built myself the bike shop was about half a mile from the hope factory, so its got some new at the time Hope Ti Hubs screw on rear hub DT Stainless spokes and some Mavic MA2 700C Rims and DT red alloy nipples.
The stem and bars are Cinnelli, Shifters Shimano RX100, Sadle not Selle Italia. Brake levers and front Shifter Suntour. Rear mech is a short cage Deore XT that was plainly lurking in my spares bin.
I really have no idea whats its worth, the frame has lost its headtube badge, and is a bit battered looking, its been with me through various house moves !. Columbus Acier stickers on the frame.
The bad bits the headset is loose, and wont tighten,would need replacing, also the paint work is pretty scuffed and battered looking. Also the stem seems to have been filed away to get it lower, so doesn't look pretty.
