RST Sigma TL 7 inch travel suspension forks (1999 I believe) - inverted.

These might need a service but they were working perfectly well for me. Special dual stem included.

I am thinking of selling them, anyone know what I should expect to get for them? or if anyone would even be interested? (apparently these were about 1000 dollars when new)

20 mm axle

Not a great pic and not cleaned up

Before I start, I don’t know much about bikes. I don’t own tools and have no knowledge on how to take bikes apart.
The local bike shop has looked it over and reported the following:
• Needs replacement bottom bracket
• Cone on rear wheel pitted and bearings shot
• Shock seals broken – leaking air into oil
• Fork needs full service
• Pedal bearings shot
• Seat tube fused to frame
• Full cable replacement needed
• Lower frame pivots rusted and fused
• Play in upper pivots in evo rocker link
I have no idea what its worth, but I will be looking to sell it.

Howdy One and All,

I'm selling this for my girlfriend. I bought it for her in '04 16" and it is IMMACULATE!!! Only slight discolouration on seatpin where it has sat in the frame, but no scratches on entire bike.

As you can see the front forks have been changed as she only used it to go down gravel paths, but I have the originals and as you can see they still have their transfers covered with the protective film!

In all it's only had about 70 miles of usage (at most)! I'm selling it to get her a hybrid or a 29er. I want to sell the bike with the forks on it and the suspension forks included as we've no use for both.

NO SPLIT. The lot goes all as one, so I need an idea on the price

I've no idea on price. It's practically a showroom bike. TIOGA PSYCHO II tyres included in the sale.
