The Rave was sold as a complete bike with Shimano 300EX for crying out loud. The Guys acting like it's some special frame. Basic starter frame with a little longer rear stays. It's a flat titanium colored paint. Ask him the true weight of the frame. It's Taiwan Cr-Mo main tubes only with hi-ten rear stays per the catalog. Original spec also was an RSX triple crank. I've bought complete fillet brazed NOS Edge Tech Shop frames for less. Even bought one used Edge complete with 9 speed DA for what he asking for that frame. The complete bike new in 1997 was only US$540 at full retail. $99 dollar frame at best.

No problem. This ones been up about three weeks maybe more. I hit the seller with the same info the first dat it was listed nd I guess because it's a NOS GT he thinks it's gold regardless of the build or material.

I paid about £80 for my NOS frame with mechs, bars and chainset still in place. Not a great ride, even for a budget bike.
