Hi everyone, looking to put this early 90s Marin Palisades on ebay when stumbled across your forum.

Measured the seat tube and it's 17" top to bottom.

How much should I sell for? Any offers?

Does anyone have any idea if it would be worth my while trying to sell the frame to fund something else, if it's not worth much I will probably just continue using it - it's not my main bike, I only use it locally for the shops etc.
Any info. would be appreciated.
Thanks, Mark

I'm pretty sure that's a 99 Clockwork, with the backwards-pointing front Vs, although it could be a 98. They didn't really work strictly to model years, but the stem looks like the 98 model. Post up the serial number from underneath the bb shell and we can tell its age from that.

The Clockwork has a brilliant double-butted steel frame and essentially anyone who sells one is slightly crazy, because it is under-valued by the stupid market, so you won't get as much for it as it's truly 'worth'.

The only issue about that particular model is that I have an idea that the reverse fork was an aluminium item. I never understood that because Orange's steel rigid forks were superb, and already quite light, so why lose the comfort just for a few grammes? I could be wrong about that, but I remember being surprised at the time. I only mention it because if you decide to keep the bike, a decent period suspension fork off ebay might improve it no end.

The 99 catalogue is here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... 1edeca35d9


The frame number is MT80600913. I'm now led to believe that it is a 10th Anniversary edition, it has a clock on the decals that is pointing to 10 o'clock.

I might decide to sell it, I just need to find another bike to replace it with first!

Thanks for all the input. Mark

Hi Mark, just to give you an idea I've been trying to sell my 1999 clockwork frame for ages on here for £50 posted with no takers :? so they don't fetch a great deal :wink:

dont have pics yet but i think its time to admit the Manitou F+F i have will never get built by me. any ideas what would be a fair price to ask for them?
no front mech,seat clamp,or seatpost unfortunatly.
also have a N.I.B. 3D.V. stem that would fit so would sell all at once be best or split?
dont want to let it go but no money means no chance to do anything with it all.

I've got an old 1990 Haro Invert that's eating space in my spare room. I'll probably strip it down (it's got Kneesaver Twos, Fusion Stem, WAL Riot twist-lace wheels (bent front axle, flat spot on rear), Graveyard pegs, GT Freestyle saddle, GT post, Xposure chainring (got the original Fusion about somewhere too) Shimano SX pedals and purple Jive Handle grips) and sell individually - how much should I put the frame up for?

Frame itself it cro-mo front triangle and hi-ten rear (Trimoly?!), has been de-stickered apart from one on the seat tube, has a small patch of flaked chrome on the underside of the downtube and has a bent fork leg (too many bad peg and smith stalls), and currently needs a bit of a polish to get rid or a little surface tarnish.

Photos to follow.

I need to recoup some cash and am wondering what would be a fair start on the 'Bay for the bits from an abandoned retro hybrid prject:

Nexave 48 Hollowtech crankset.
Nexave 3x7 Shifter pods.
Nexave V's with red modualtion spring thing in 'em.
Nexave megarange 7 rear mech.
Nexave 34.9 low band rear mech.

T300 gearset, T400/410 crankset.
Can't find a Shimano number on the brakes.
