Apparently the seller knows nothing about bikes but knows that the parts are worth over £2000 in description
hmm great looking bike but nowhere near worth that amount

Not sure why this is funny. He's saying the person who built it knows how to build things in a non inexperienced cackhanded manner. Probably more competent than the majority in here.

As to a 'cracking' frame, surely thats not the point.
GT Thermo plastic ? reknowned for cracking, but still a sought after frame. Tioga disc drive, prone to ripping :wink:

Its currently under auction and at £132

If someone here gets it for the parts, I am interested in the wheels.

Don’t see what the problem with the valuation. Bidding is only at 144 at the moment which seems good value especially for given it has some nice components on it.

When someone puts up a retrobike for sale does the asking price need to get approval from a valuation committee on here? Does it really matter? If it sells great, if it doesn’t, so what?

This subject, or the subject of pricing here on RB has always been the privilege of the seller.
Ergo, its none of anyones business.
If you can get it, then go for it.

eg
Years ago bought a bench vice. Heavily rusted,but i was sure i could sort it.
Offered the market trade 20 quid, but then another trader, an acquaintance of his steps up and thinks its worth considerably more.
I turn to this interloper and ask if you pays the sellers mortgage ? No reply.
I ask again and again getting no answer, tell his to mind his own fing business then.
We agreed 20 quid. I think he got a laugh with me telling the other guy to f off :lol:

So its subjective, and as such we prefer people didnt turn it into threads.
