What a stunner - one of the best I've ever seen. Completely original down to the tyres (rarer than rare). At £225 BIN I'd say that's a good price, and they deliver.

Someone get on it now!

And sold by a RB'er - just saw it on the what's it worth thread (Kona-853).

Excellent purchase whoever got it.

Kona-853 got something even nicer - just added to that what's it worth thread. I'd say 'a lot'

Actually it says it was withdrawn owing to being 'lost or broken', so it isn't clear that it has been sold. An offer of £140 was declined.

However good it may be in our terms, I personally don't think it has a market value of much more than £140. It's conventional to say that it's worth what somebody will pay, but on the other hand if the seller would rather keep it than sell for £140, maybe it's worth more to him than to the market.

Do you mean the cinder cone? I reckon that would go at 225. I think we're all very lucky to get these bikes as cheap as we do when you consider what you can get new.
