The great shame is that home grown bikes like the Zinn are hugely undervalued over here. If it were a Salsa or Yeti in that condition, you could practically retire on the funds.

It's a toughie, as you are into a pretty selective market, why not try £950 ish and see if you get any response. I would also drop Sinnerman and Giom6 a PM, asking their opinions.

I have a AMP F1 (labeled as Concept USA) in NOS condition. It has a 195mm long steering tube with 75mm threaded. Diameter is 1" (inner) / 1 1/8" (outer). Including the thing to mount cantis (do not know the proper word in english).
The fork was never mounted (no signs at thead, brake-bolts) but has some dirt from storage.

How much should this nice thing cost?

I think E-bay is the best route too on this. Problem is though with the bike world the US stuff seems to reach silly prices this probably wont meet the reserve i put on it :shock:

OK - help me out please...

I have a 1996 Klein Pulse Comp - 16" seattube c-to-t - 22" top tube c-to-c.
Maybe Klein built as opposed to Trek built.
Chunky square to round chainstays
Metallic green - but flaking in places.
Nothing special - would like to move the frame on - what's a fair price?
£50? £100?

Thanks in advance

I've got a pretty old Chris King two nut headset, curious if there is much desire for these. Its a bit scratched up, 1" steerer.

Thats a bonney headset! Should get £50-£60 for that if the bearings are decent.

I'd say somewhere in between but on the £50 side of things.

Agree, maybe more 3DV ones are going strong just now. IIRC one went very high within the last year.

Specialized Team Master/Control pair used like twice? (1997)
Knobbly bits/full tread, lovely wet looking as new essentially + spiders eggs from shed.....

and to the dedicated money-no-object restoration enthusiast?

Have a set of Specialized anodoised hubs/wheels which these would fit nicely to a Specialized frame - Would love to keep them obviously however feeling for sensible valuations, init.
