    Bontrager Race Lite frame pricing?

    I'm considering selling my old pre-Trek Bontrager Racelite steel frame which is built up with full '99 XT and has SID forks. It also has a Chris King No-threadset.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/jacksloan/5211323797/" title="Bontrager Race Lite by jack_sloan, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5124/5211323797_0fa2038d4c.jpg" width="500" height="374" alt="Bontrager Race Lite" /></a>

    I've no idea what the pricing would be for it. Could anyone give me any idea of where to start? It's an amazing frame in good nick, and a bit of a cult bike. Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jack Sloan
    London.

    Not nearly as much as you would hope. Collectors bikes rarely go for anything worthwhile. Maybe 200 bucks? 250?

    I would sell it as a whole bike and make them buy it for the frame.

    I'd list it for you it's worth to you and be prepared to hang on to it. I think the whole Trek thing really killed the brand. I used to lust over those back in the day.

    There's a what's it worth thread stickied in the Vintage, Retro, & Classic forum. Try there for a (hopefully) realistic appraisal.
