Now that would be telling!! To be honest, I have based it on the reserve of the last couple of complete Fat City Bikes I have seen sell, but I am unsure what these things are really worth.

What sort of reserve would be realistic do you think?

Cheers

If I'm honest, the parts pick is more functional than the usual stuff a retrophile would fit onto such a nice frame - you're therefore likely to have two markets:

1. Someone looking for a good, rideable classic
2. Someone looking for something they can strip and build as they want

Neither type of person is likely to drop to money on the bike - a case in point is the Ibis Mojo with similarly sensible spec that went for £190 last night. However, with the number of good quality photos you've got and a good description I'd say you'll most likely make £250-300. At that price, I'd hold onto it, but....

I'd have been tempted to part it out. That said, I'm watching this one closely.

Looks like you're gonna get a lot more than £200 ... considering how many days are left in the auction this could get high ...
