    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.

    Bontrager Race Lite

    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,

    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.
