It's been restored 16 years ago and not,built up since.......it's a high end one, but I am not sure of the model.....it's Columbus, but not sure of what type.....

Ball park figure?


Restored as in original colours or respray a different colour/ graphics?

Early Benotto's, as I'm sure you know, were Italian built and more desirable than the later Mexican built (which are still mighty fine bikes). As your knowledge of the frame is vague I'd say a ballpark figure of £200.

As it is probably about £100 which may seem harsh but the colours are garish (imo of course other may love it!) and it has been debadged (don't debadge your bikes folks!), I appreciate it still has the headtube badge but the graphics on the downtube probably would tie the colour scheme in a bit better.

If it were mine I'd change the tyres to all black, lower the stem and tilt the bars down so the bottom is horizontal, advertise with plenty of blurb about how wonderful it is and cross my fingers for £150. Or break it;

£50 for the STI's
£40 for the 300ex stuff - chainset, bb, gears
Frame forks - £40 - £50
Wheels - £30

Something like that....

I put some simple advice on my site that may help a little http://stallioncycles.webs.com/sellingyourbike.htm

Thanks tel - I was thinking around that to be fair may try £125 picked up, and see what happens

[quote="Tel"]Yes Cougars are good bikes. Only thing letting yours down aesthetically are the red rims (imo). Should still achieve something like £250'ish imho.[/quote

Thanks mate.

Hi everyone, I used to post in the mtb section but have sold most of my collection :(
The reason I am posting in here is because my boss has this KHS Aero Turbo road bike and wants to sell it. He's not sure how much it is worth and knows I am into bikes and asked me! I know nothing about road bikes but knew you guys do. So all I can do is to post pics and leave it in your hands. So here goes:

^ DA and chainset are lovely! (Some one please remind me what the cranks are!)

I'd expect that to go for circa £500. That era of carbon is in the void of not a collectable classic but not as "good" as a modern carbon. Lot's of bike for the money generally.

Defo get more if you (he) splits it.

I have a pair of 105 8 speed hubs built up on very clean MA40s. I'd say a few hundred miles tops on the rims.

how much should i be asking?

Thanks for the reply, my boss will be happy to hear how much it could be worth! I think the cranks could be Topline?
