Hi All,
I'm new to the site after stumbling across it while researching some bikes I used to own and I've already spent hours and hours drooling at some of the pictures of peoples builds.
I'm wondering if anyone could give me a rough estimate on the value of a '94(?) Kona Kona frame and forks? I believe it was a fairly limited release and was only sold as a frameset. From the Kona website and other sources I have found out that the US version was made from Easton Scandium and the EU version Columbus (Sticker says Zonal but Kona spec says Altec 2?). The link below shows a pretty good picture.

I may have to sell it to fund another project but I will hang on to it if I can afford to - or if it's not worth that much. Mine is in pretty good shape with only a few light scratches and scuffs.

Any help appreciated.

any help appreciated

Ok so there are more photo's here: http://imageshack.us/g/694/dscf3846o.jpg/

Please ignore all the components, they were just swapped straight over from a low spec Giant TCR. If you look at the close up of the top tube you can see some corrosion starting by the looks of it. It is also different to the link I posted previously in that there are no braze ons for down tube shifters and the drop outs are different.

Thinning the stash:

Basso Loto 58cm, Columbus SLX including fork - very good condition
little paint chips on rear seattubes - cable rub on the right side of steerer tube only - slight marks on fork. paint/lacquer is in very good condition.
frame is stiff as it was in new condition. Has been bought as new, build up ONCE and ridden by myself - little milage <5000

includes stronglight headset - smooth run, dura ace stem, modolo handlebars & seatpost which fits very tight: has to because of the tricky clamp which was always treated very carefully.
bottom bracket by selcof is ok but needs to be replaced.

what do you think is the whole set worth?

Another beauty:

Glider Tupelo - probably a 60cm (59cm TT, 63cm ST)
C5S triple butted Columbus Niobium Spirit
made by Serotta (blue tone is serotta stock colour > identical serotta model would be the Colorado GS which is MSRP $2795 including fork)
In EXCELLENT Condition - looks like it was builded up and then immediately stripped. Has seen almost no Milage. I'd keep it if it wasn't that tad too big for me :cry:
Only cosmetic flaw is the paint chips on the dropouts.

I think that BSA is worth 50 pound at the most

Vitus Carbone Kevlar 9, what would this be worth? I cannot find any recent sale history on these bikes to compare.
