My offer was based on comparative condition for equally aged/rare bikes.....although it was and is pretty low spec. Retailed for between £400 and £500 I seem to remember.
and yes..most of us (thanks to your help quite often Kurt
) do pick up XT equiped bikes for the price of a half decent meal.
I would say £140 is very generous.....still nice bike though.....I love old dales. It still amazes me on a daily basis how sellers value their bikes???? on what info are they assuming such values?....the original price tag???!!! Most of us(yes most of us
) regularly buy complete xt/dx/lx bike for the price of a few beers. Rant done.
Just stupid ebay sellers.
