I usually go for eighties bikes and tend not to sell, so I'm struggling to place a value on this 1996 Stumpjumper.

It's a rigid bike with Prestige steel tubing. All seems to be original except the tyres.

All I've done to it is give it a quick wash. Looks lightly used but it has some decal scaping and some areas of lightly crazing / light rust in the paint.

Im in the middle of a RockCombo restoration, so guidance on value will help while I decide what to do with it. TIA.

This '97 model went just last week for £80 collected:

I think that's cheap.

This '97 went unsold at £140 a few years ago:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=356991

Yours looks to be in nice condition. To the right buyer, £160 might be fair, but these often seem to go for less than I guess they might ...

Cheers Jim, that's helpful.

I saw the £80 one - it was definitely cheap - he could have sold it ten times over.

I paid £150 for one off ebay a couple of years ago. It was too small so I sold the frame and forks a year or so later for £70.

I think about £150-70 is the right price, but there don't seem to be many buyers around these days.

Cheers - these kind of figures will help me while I mull over what to do with it.
