    RC300’s weren’t early 90s mate. It’s more like 2000 ish

    Postal charges/rules etc What larks!

    I roll bars in cardboard to form a tube like package and then send with Hermes if cheap (£10) or with Parceforce if more expensive. Cost is £3.50 - £5 usually. There is no cheaper/better method I’ve looked lots

    I think I want to scratch the Klein itch…..

    If it’s terrible to ride it’s not a massive issue. I’ve been looking at the early ones a bit and they’ve certainly got a appeal. Not sure it’s £4-5k appeal though for me. The one I offered £1k against sent a offer of £1400 today to watchers and to be honest I’d of probably gone a bit more than...

    I’ll ask the question when I next speak to them but I get the feeling it’ll need to be £3-5k spend on ladies to get a steel mens watch whichever model. Premiums seem to be 2-3k on EX2 so it’s probably not a bad way to get one but it’s lots of hassle selling a watch

    I do like them but I destroy cranks on rocks in the peaks so I struggle to spend £1k. I’m not a massive Sram fan to be honest but I’ve ended with 3 bikes now running it and I don’t mind it actually. My SB140 is AXS XX1 simply because that’s all I could buy at the time as I wanted XTR but no...

    Times change is probably the best phase. Rolex don’t sell watches they sell rarity, assets, vanity , etc As I’m sure you know the market is very different to 10 years ago due to who’s buying them I guess. Great watches for sure and the flippers play a important part in the model. They aren’t...

    Without the grey market for Rolex the brand wouldn’t have the appeal and price retention it currently has. Rolex love the flippers whether they admit it or not. If they dropped in value the moment you purchased ,then all the ‘enthusiasts’ would be the first to complain and stop lusting over what...

    I’m assuming the seatpost is still stuck (no bolt through in pics ) but there’s no mention in the advert. I don’t mind anyone taking a gamble for some profit but advertise it properly. And these seat posts he has for sale made me laugh...

    It would be ridden a bit but majority of miles is on modern stuff. Maybe a few hundred a year in summer. No idea what “Gatorade” wall brackets are but it would live on this wall from the £4 eBay brackets.

    I think I want to scratch the Klein itch…..

    I will watch the market a bit now I feel and see what comes up. I may wait for a nice condition bike to come up which I can split and keep the frame and then build using XTR parts I have /or I come across. I’ve a feeling that the one I’d offered on won’t be selling any time soon at £1500 but...

    For Sale 1997 GT Zaskar LE, Judy SL, Chris King, Flite, M952, Reduced

    I buy quite a few Zaskars so feel I know the market well. You will only achieve that price by splitting. As a full bike it will sell at around £300-400 but once people have been paid again. Hope this helps
