I've seen a few for £100-£120. Nice frames, got to love that downtube.

There's been a couple of frames on eBay recently.

One 16" MsIsle frame the same as mine went for a measly £60+post... Although it did need a bit of tlc!

The black one? That was a 14" frame, i got out bid on it in the last second. It went for £69 posted. It needed the paint stripping & a new spray job, would of been perfect for me!

Wow that is awesome, 500 bones though.......... Could build an ms isle with that money.

Saying that, a quick Google search shows a certain shop is selling miii frames for £270!!
