I have an old Shimano XT front disc brake set up with two rotors, normal and a 203mm one. I was going to let it go but i have no idea on value or if there's any call for it?

anyone know what i should ask for it? it's in suprb condition with no scratches on the caliper or lever, would probably need a bleed but it does have new gold pads.

Sorry if asking for valuation isn't the done thing, the mods can delete it if this is frowned upon

thanks in advance

I'be no idea of the value of this, but what I always do with anything I don't need and have no value for is stick it on eBay with a good description, zero reserve and let karma take care of the rest.

You may be surprised :)

^^^ I imagine Mr Twain is after the calliper.

The brake lever is old Shimano and not very desirable; the set as you ahve above on ebay would go for £ 40 - 60 ish.

They're actually reasonably sort after...great brakes. There were certainly a couple of members on here trying to track one down.
