I have a black zaskar, same frame etc

it has a serial number very close to your number however the frame is cracked around the head tube, not something that can be easily fixed. I emailed downhillsheep via the 'bay, what sort of value are you looking for it ?

I have put a reserve on of £50. so I wouldn't something near that amount. I also have some Zaskar decals (purple & yellow and black & white ) also up for sale. I'm still not 100% convinced that it is a Zaskar, but if I sell it as a "could be a Pantera or Avalanche" then I'll be happy. And if someone recognises it as a Zaskar then I'm sure they'll be happy, unless they really wanted a Pantera or Avalanche!

Zaskars are pretty tough little frames. I got hit by a car on mine, enough force to crack my ribs and bend a crank arm round beneath the bottom bracket but when the frame was stripped and placed on an alignment table, it was straight as an arrow.

Assuming that the frame is a US made Zaskar, £50 is a steal.

as russell says zaskars are bomb proof
i ..er jumped one of mine off a bus stop some years ago (dont ask) its still going today.
a mate of mine used to be able to tell by the length of the butting
in the top and down tubes "do the ping test " most zaskars are tripple
butted.
but sreial nos are the way to go.

What a waste of time.....lousy £16.00 for a Zaskar Frame......thank God for Reserve Pricing. You'd think with all the hassle I've had with this frame, that I#d be able to get more than £16 for it. Anyone here want to buy it, before I relist it again!!!

I have had my frame checked out by a friendly welder and I am going to get mine welded.

A polished frame on the bay is currently going for £30 with 4 days left so you could spend £5 on paint stripper and a bit of polish and maximise your potential profit on the frame. Last polished one went for £85.
