Would be a 98 or 99 I'd say.

A similar vintage GT STS DS (4-5" travel model) frame in good condition went for over 300 quid on uk ebay recently, although I picked up mine for about $250AU (100 quid) on australian ebay (with blown shock).

I would have thought the Lobo would be worth a little more than an STS, although its hard to judge. Complete bike might be worth 500-600 quid?

Had to come back for another drool - awesome bike!!!

If I win millions in lotto this weekend (have a couple of tickets - must be an absolute cert) I'll give you a couple of grand for it and fly over personally to collect it!

A boy can only dream..

Incidentally, I double checked and the GT STS DS frame I was talking about went for 323GBP.

Hey thanks for that i know that it might not be everyones favourite bike but i think its gorgeous and looks and in some cases out performs a lot of the modern day bikes now.......I know this will make a lot of people sick when they read this but the bike cost me nothing about 2 years ago a guy who lived down the road from me just gave it to me when his son moved out when he got married...... :lol: yes how jammie is that he wanted to get rid of it because he needed to make some space in his spare room and knew i was into bikes. :lol: :P :lol: really should be on this forum as Mr Jammie git should'nt I.Good luck with the lotto i will have it cleaned up and ready for you.

Must admit i saw a standard LOBO alu frame go for nearly £800.00 the other day :shock: so i am thinking with the right audience it could go for a lot more if i were to sell it ? i sold a STS 1000DS on ebay about a year ago and i got £1,200.00 for it because it was as lush as the LOBO so my mind is in overdrive at the moment :idea: :idea: :?:

Yep......I hate you! :lol: Talk about right place, right time hey! 8)

I would put this bike at late 90's, but I dont think GT made too many cus you dont hear too much about them.

£££'s wise, a bit of a specialist bike so hard to say. Its a bit of 'what someone is prepared to pay', but I wouldnt let it go for any less that £350/400.

But, as it cost you nowt......I'll give you £10 for it! :wink:

Hmmmm!!! now if you had said £20.00 i might have thought about it ?? makes you sick when some bugger gets a deal like that does'nt it :twisted: See i am like you i thought these were as rare as hens teeth so just not sure what i should do keep it or sell it as i hear a nice little rumour that the whole GT range from this period are becoming quite the collectors bike ?? :D

£20 is pushing it, I can go to £12.78 if I root behind the sofa and then auction my daughter as a slave for the weekend!

If I were you (a right now I wish I was :wink: ), as it didnt cost you anything it doesnt owe you anything, so keep it. And like you, I have a feeling the old GT's are going to be going up in value.......my RTS is going nowhere! :)
