It's very nice and I would probably think much the same - but I'm not sure that in the open market many would agree!

seems fair, even if you split it you should get that much there some pretty good stuff on there. ritchey saddle. richer amberwalls, lx groupset. etc. i have always like thos elater saracens.

although i have had a rubbish time selling stuff recently maybe wait till people get paid later in the month.

Full LX on the saracen, as a complete bike, if that's posted then I would say spot on.

I have an old Overbury's bicycle which I have had for over 20 years. I was thinking about selling it as I last used it 5 years ago for the London to Brighton ride! It has been in the shed ever since.

It is in need of some fairly major TLC, but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in it? The front forks are in pretty good condition... minimal rust. The frame has some areas of rust on, but considering how long I have had it, could be worse.

It has a lot of sentimental value to me, put together by a friend and it was very much coveted at the time! I used to get stopped in the street by people asking to buy it!

Any advice on whether it is worth anything or any comments at all gratefully received.

Shall endeavour to post a photo!


Wow, you don't see many of these pop up.

Also registering my interest (sorry Carl :)) but got a feeling its going to be a bit of a tussle!


Dont stress mate, i have retracted my interest in this one.

Seen these go for loads (£300+) on ebay but around £200 is more realistic.

I have a possibility of laying my hands on a Gary Fisher Montare, in Dark Red. RST Gila T4 or 5 forks, tatty XT shifters, Deore front and rear mech. Looks like Specialized hubs. Think she'd be circa 94-95 maybe

She needs some TLC, any ideas on what the max I should pay for her?

I'd plan to strip her until she's shiney and build it back up with XT / XTR
