    Hope Fair price for kikapu frame

    I have a Kikapu frame that I need to sell, and I need some help on how much to charge for it. It is a 06' that was rode for a year and a half and has the usual scratches, but no dents. It also has a swinger 3-way and a vanilla R (stock, can be back up) rear shock. Also a RF seat post (evolve), sram FD ( x-9 ), and stock marz fork ( mz comp). I am NOT trying to sell it here and now. I plan on selling local or at the comming up FTF.

    Thanks for any help, I am kinda lost on how much I should get for it. If I could afford to I would just keep it, as I really liked this bike.

    Keep the frame and jsut sell the specs on ebay. that way when money isn't so tight you can rebuild the bike with a facelift

    I need more cash in my hand than I can get from selling the entry level components. I do have another FS bike, the kik just has to go.

    I'd gather it is a deluxe, so around 1000 would be fair. Did you do any upgrades?

    sorry I left that out but,no it's a straight kikapu. I am selling the FRAME which is the same as the deluxe. It will come with a swinger 3-way rear shock, x-9 FD, RF seat post, and marz front shock.The stem and handle bar are still on there also. I got a new frame and swapped over my components except for the ones thaty wouldn't fit like the FD and the seat post. So basicly some one with a HT can just swap over their components, and don't have to worry about the size specific components.

    Thank you for the input!

    A marin Mt Vision frame with all the nice parts from my kikapu. I was very happy with my kik I just stumbled into this frame with a little more travel, so I did the switch. If I was going to buy a new frame to replace the kik I would have got one of the new dawg frames.

    That being said I really like the marin.
