a little steep considering one sold for less with SIDs recently (granted £50 postage was a pisstake!)

Only one photo, £100 overpriced and the seller writes Bristol as Brizzol, I'd be tempted at £450 with better photos, but I'd never part with that sort of cash without seeing something. It's strange, because the seller obviously splits bikes, so you'd think they'd put up a few decent photos.

Pretty much what everyone here has said so far. £100 too much and no proper photo's = very risky purchase.

I'd have a guess maybe this is the same 19" frame from Yeovil and has sold the fork separately.

Didn't someone here pay significantly more than this bin for one recently? I mean way more money!

Priced in the right ball park for me, definitely not grossly over priced.

A King Kahuna went for about £880 recently, but it was a KK and it was an 18 inch frame. If this was an 18 inch frame, then I suspect it might have been snapped up at £550. I think the fact that only a couple of weeks ago the "market" decided that a 19 inch Hei Hei with easily £100 worth of parts, and what appeared to be original decals was worth £450, then I don't think it's unfair to say this is at least £100 or even £150 overpriced.

Interestingly no feedback has been left on the £450 frame/forks by either seller or buyer, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's the same frame!
