    I say it's worth $20. Show a completed sale listing for $150 or I'm going to post about it until your eyes bleed.

    You guys are funny!

    I suppose my full original 88 Teasdale Mt. Tam in very good condition is pretty much worthless cause even newer steel bikes don't sell for more than $20 on Craig's list in Oakland.

    Zygote's probably got it nailed without looking at it.

    WIW?

    I think it's worth $1775.00, exactly that.

    It is actually an '87. I was just reading about a couple of '88's and had a brain fart.

    In that case it probably lost some value as it is that much older!

    Got any pics? I'm just curious, I like the fillet'ed Fishers.

    I'm not an authority on value for them, but they seem to go for at least a couple of hundred. Then there's that one on ebay for $8000 or whatever it was. (Which is obviously insane.)

    I'm not really in sell mode (haven't had any $8000 offers!) so I don't have pics. I'll see if i can put something together this weekend.

    Cool, thanks. I'm not really fishing to buy one, I've just always liked them.

    Vintage, Retro, Classic. What is it?
    One of the two most commonly asked questions. How to determine the difference (or even identify) a vintage, retro, or classic bike. Other VRC'ers have defined it far more eloquently than I ever could. Here are some links discussing the subject. They include some great definitions of VRC. Keep in mind that the definition of vintage retro classic is, at the end of the day, in they eyes of the beholder.

    VRC Definition threads:
    General VRC Definition Discussion
    General VRC Definition Discussion II
    General VRC Definition Discussion III
    General VRC Definition Discussion IV
    General VRC Definition Discussion V
    Which of todays bikes are tomorrow's classics


    What's It Worth (WIW)
    The other most commonly asked question. What's it worth?
    This is about as difficult to define as the definition of 'vintage retro classic'. There is no clear answer. And though this question is asked often, its almost always asked of a different part or bike...making links to helpful threads difficult.

    Here's one of the better discussions of the topic:
    Vintage Value
    Lighthearted, but less than helpful 'whats it worth' discussion.

    I'll make an attempt at providing guidance to 'what's it worth', it is just my personal opinion on the subject.

    What's it worth? What is your bike worth? Are you sitting on a gold mine? Maybe, maybe not. The best way to determine the value of your bike. Put it on eBay for $.99 and let it ride. This probably the most best way to figure the value. Of course, how well your auction description is and how clean and nicely you take pictures of your bike will also affect its value. MTBR.com has a 'Vintage' section in the classifieds. It hits your target audience perfectly.
    If you don't want to sell your bike, but just want to know if it has value...take these things into account:
    Age of the bike.
    Originality of the bike (paint, parts)
    Condition of the bike (paint, parts)
    Is it a low production run bike? Custom/Hand made by a reputable craftsmen?
    Component list? Are the parts 'top or the line' or quality aftermarket upgrades?

    Worth....or value, will always be a gray area. What may be worth a lot to you, may be worth very little to someone else. Even something such as sentimental worth can sometimes affect market value. Do your research. Watch local Craigslist and eBay for like items to gauge the worth (value) of what you have.
    Best advice and statement I've heard on this forum in a long time.

    You should start reading it more often. It might make what you say more relevant.

    Your actions don't show that you comprehended it though.

    I'm sorry, I'm really not a go after someone kind of guy, but you just refuse to accept input, constructive or otherwise, and put it to use.

    You seem bound and determined to go against the grain, (fine, whatever, just be ready to deal with the blow back) but when so many try to point out something right in front of your nose, and you simply dig in further, refuse to understand what they are driving at, and insist that the collective knowledge around here is wrong, skewed, rigged, etc? It simply gets old, and I'm tired of hearing about it, as are many others.

    Please consider that to be part of a group, and get the benefits of it, tangible or otherwise, you need to at least attempt to understand the social mores, intent, purpose etc of that group. You want good info from someone, best to not start out by pissing them off with your rigid, willfull ignorance.

    Can't show up at a knitting group and insist that they all listen to you talk about the time you learned to play trumpet in the back of the bus on the way to band camp......

    You seem like an articulate enough guy, and you can spell, take the next step, and chill.....

    Fishing for some opinions here. I am undecided if I should sell or keep. I bought this beauty a while back as it is the sister to my road bike that I ever so cherish. This is a really rare 1987 Team Stumpjumper built by Dave Tesch. Everything but wheels and seat are original (even the grips). All XT group (gruppo?). Wheels are a NOS set of Araya RM20s with bright and shiny Suzue hubs (bike came mix-matched with a destroyed rear) and NOS Ground Control tires.

    Anyhow, this is my daily driver but the lunar landscape that is my regular trails (Annadel SP) is not too nice on a rigid bike that is a size or two too small for me.

    Thanks in advance and here she is:

    The team Stumpjumper is certainly worth a bit more than the others though I'm not sure that the one's brazed by David Tesch command a premium. (I have a California 101 BTW) I would imagine somewhere in the $400 range?

    ATP Plasma Racing

    I just picked this neat frame, sorry for the poor pictures, pretty sure it's a Titan but I don't know much about them. Anyone have any info or an idea what it's worth?

    EDIT: Just figured out that ATP was a division of Burley Bikes, same as Titan, though my guess is that this was pre-Titan. Just a guess.

    I still haven't been able to find any info about this frame and very limited info about ATP (Advanced Training Products). I even tried contacting the guy who I think built it, Alan Scholz, who is currently the CEO of Bike Friday, but haven't heard anything. So I wanted to check with you guys one more time to see if anyone here knows anything. Thanks!

    Not a Titan.

    ATP was the company that made Burley tandems and the steel Titans. They later became Bike Friday.

    The frame above is basically a one off and uses the same BB as the Titan 1/2Trac.

    Most, if not all, of the frames sold under the ATP name were 'cross bikes.

    It is Training. I have known Alan and Hanz for many years, and worked for them at Bike Friday.
    ATP was never a division of Burley and Titan was a totally separate company that contracted steel frames from ATP.

    The made Ryan recumbents. Do not remember them doing Vision.
    Also made Long John cargo bikes.

    Never heard Alan or Hanz use "Transportation" but does not mean it was not tossed around. Lots of minor name changes come and go.

    Excellent info, thanks Shiggy!

    Double Century, color me jelly, that frame is awesome!!!

    EDIT: I just got a reply from Alan at Bike Friday, saying that it's likely a one-off made by an employee with cyclocross decals, built 90-93. Cool!

    Quote-

    Advanced Transportation Products (ATP) built the Vision line of recumbents in Washington State. ATP went out of business in early 2004. Their corporate assets were sold piece-by-piece at auction in March of 2004. They had been the largest recumbent manufacturer still producing all their bikes in the US.

    Source- Vision Recumbent Bikes ~ Vision recumbents, USA built by ATP R-40 SWB and MWB, R-42 & R-45 and R-50 SWB, R82 recumbent tandems too!

    No pony in the race, I'd simply heard of ATP when I was building recumbent frames for a company I helped start.

    Training sounded wrong, so I googled it, and found nothing under training, but a boatload of info and links under transportation.

    Probably made from gas pipe or conduit, and it was sold as a Burley.

    What makes you say that? I think they used True Temper for all their frames. In fact, I had one of their later cross frames made of OX Platinum. Though, perhaps you're just making a brutto scherzo.

    What's it worth

    Hello, I hope to get some senior advice on ser #'s and what's its worth to the total % of the bike frame. I am a young grasshopper in the collecting dept but am very motivated to seek and buy mtb history because its my connection to the best time in my life. The question I am asking to the members of this form to weigh in on is. If a ser # on a rare bike is not legible or missing how much or should it affect the value? Thanks just a percentage + - is fine. thanks in advance

    Depends. A rare/collectible bike is a rare/collectible bike if we know for sure what it is. Early serial numbers might be more desirable, but my guess is the year it was made holds as much weight at this point. Can't ignore other important factors like condition and paint.

    As an example: One of the regulars here had Ritchey P-23 Team #4. Fourth one made! I have P-23 Team #10. Both are first year P-Teams. I would say their value is about the same (ignoring other factors like condition and paint). Move down the line a year or two, a P-22 Team might (thats a maybe) be worth a tick less (also ignoring condition/paint).

    If you had Klein Attitude #1 or Salsa #1, you might be able to command a higher number for it, but generally speaking I don't feel that serial numbers affect value more than 1% (if I have to give it a number).

    The main "value" of a serial number, assuming that the company kept good records, is identifying a fake.

    I think fans of some brands/builders - the ones with good record-keeping maybe - tend to view serial numbers as important. The Ritchey example is good and if you look at oldmountainbikes you'll see a pretty incredible listing of bikes by serial numbers. Having a legible one would allow you as newbie/non-insider to play with the serious collectors.

    I know from the Fat Chance folks that serial numbers are extremely important. In part because purchase year doesn't always match up to production year, but also because repaints and re-decaling (even at the Fat factory) sometimes re-badged the bikes as different models. Serial numbers in this case don't lie.

    Here's the page of the build book that has my Fat. If it had been "a special" in some way, the book would have reflected it.

    Picked up this IRD Rotary brake. Looks to be in decent shape. I'm not really up to speed on the IRD stuff. U mount obviously. What am I looking at?

    Would you buy this bike if…?

    Would you buy the following bike if, it was in good shape, it was your size, it was close by (craigslist), you had all other builds complete and room in your garage?

    AND do you think the asking price is fair? (I took out shipping on E-Bay)

    Oh and feel free to judge away, I may want it, but I'm not going to buy it due to no room for another bike and other builds to complete. I recently saw all these either on ebay or craigs.

    Also, please add your own bikes and current asking price. I am curious to see what others are finding and what they would buy if they could. (try to include pic instead of link so we all can see it after the listing is sold)

    The GT Karakoram $299. Year 1992
    The DB Apex EX is $180. Year?
    The Proflex is $160 (+$99 shipping). Year 1992! that's an old full squish.
    The GT Xizang is $1600!!!! Year?

    Xizang if you can get seller to go a bit lower.
    Apex is a solid deal
    GT only if you HAVE to have it.

    apex is I think a 1990 maybe, seems good
    xizang is a 93/94 from decals, serial number would tell more and I'd buy it at that price, but I'm a sucker for a xizang.
    karakoram looks a bit wonky
    proflex, er not even at $5 posted.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Rocky Mountain Team Comp 1992

    This was abandoned in my lobby missing a bunch of stuff. Building manager didn't know what he had. This is a rare 17" with a four digit serial number on the bb. It has Tange Prestige Ultimate Ultralight tubing. Unfortunately, I didn't adhere to being era correct with the Crossride wheels and carbon Economy 70 bar but much of it is sweet 90s goodness like the Sun tour Expert thumbies, RF Turbine crank, Syncros stem, Xtr rear derailleur and brakes and the triple butted Kona P2 really gives this a sweet ride. Oh ya, it has a relatively not XT un73bb. Had to nearly max out the Fsa post to fit. I see this a the ultimate courier tool and makes me wish I had this when I was in the business. It's quite light too, I weighed it awhile ago at about 22 lbs.

    No glitch. Posts that have been answered or are outright outings are deleted.

    Just a FYI, this is the only thread where posts are often deleted because it turns out to be often the case where people are selling their bikes and want to know what it's worth. Without an ad, it's against forum rules and are immediately deleted but we recognize it's helpful info and so here it stays until it's hopefully answered.

    Also, this is not a place to throw up all your bikes and all the bikes you're thinking of. We expect you to learn through hanging out in the forum, using google to find what you need and using CL and ebay to figure out what things are being bought and sold for.

    There are posts in this thread that have not been deleted because frankly, it's a bit overwhelming and we haven't gotten around to it yet. It does take a bit of effort and I rather be doing something else.

    Hope that helps and good luck with your search and flips.

    Lewisfoto, I can't tell on my phone...is it not an action-tec fork? I think those are great forks. That's a great bike. Underappreciated.

    Hi!

    Can you please help me with estimating a value for a pair Panaracer Timbuk II in quite good condition for their age. They are not repros! Looks they were produced in 89.

    I bought the exact tires brand spankin' new 4 years ago and paid $85.00 for the pair. Surprisingly, for old tires they have held up really well. Far better than my Ritchey Duro and ZMax tires from the same era.

    Dear diamondback followers,
    recently i bought this bike because i was looking for a classic mountain bike made of steel and in my early mtb-days i already had a red db.
    so i got the hands on this beauty. as far as i can see its like new. i cannot find any scratches although the rims show that the bike was ridden. It seems that the bike is original except the flite saddle.
    can anybody tell me when it was build? i don´t know whether i will have the courage to actually ride because it is in so fine condition. What do you think it is worth?
    Thank you for any information.
    Kind regards from germany

    Sorry your bike got stolen, that is never good. DiamondBack, DBR were fine bikes at the time but not very collectible sorry to say. Looks like a nice bike so maybe $200 to $300/ same with the axis posted above. (though I personally would rather have the Axis!)

    1996 "Time capsuled" GT Avalanche

    Just scored this 1996 GT Avalanche from a older neighbor dude, said it was given to him as payment back in 1998ish. He never rode it, just set it in storage. The bike still has nubs on the tires, no paint wear off the peddles, rims have hardly any brake marks. Frame has very minor storage scuffs. By the looks of it Id say it has less than 10 mile on it. It rides like new, just needed to be dusted off.

    Any ideas of a value?

    Perhaps around $200-$250. Nice find

    Probably worth the $100. Down side is the Quadra fork and low end drivetrain.

    Marin Pine Mountain Barn Find..... My Barn.... Need some info....

    Hi everyone.... noob here with my first post.
    Could use some of the "Expert Advise" from you all.

    I recently cleared out a storage unit I had and found a bike that I bought back in the day.

    I put new tires on it, lubed the cables and started to ride it for exercise. Till some people saw it and said "What!!!!" and told me it might be worth something. So I immediately parked it (again!) before I broke it or it got stolen.

    Marin Pine Mountain in pretty "Cherry" condition. I'd say 50-75 miles on it total.
    Still has the red label on the rear derailleur and sticker on the front sprocket.
    Has Ritchey handlebars and grips and an Avocet seat which I believe are the only non-stock items on the bike besides the tires.

    I bought this bike from the owner of Midtown Bike Shop in Palo Alto way back when.....

    Can you give me the 411 on this unit and what it may be worth?

    Thanks, frisco415

    Campy over kill

    There is some debate over the worth of something that "nobody wanted when produced but for some reason because there weren't many sold they are rare? I was thinking of putting on a Ritchey but on second thought it depends on price. The thumbies are 6 speed but would it work with any 6 speed cog set? thanks

    Couple hundred on the high side.
    Clean bike but not very collectable. Solid but pedestrian parts spec.

    I personally love Campagnolo off road groups. As far as price goes? On the bay the nicer stuff has become outrageously high.

    You can date code the parts for that info. Easy as pie.

    1991 Breezer Lightning Flash

    So i happened upon a 1991 Breezer Lightning Flash for pocket change... frame is solid, though paint is a little rough. original owner had dumped the original fork for a squishy one .

    That being said, it's one of the few Shitamori factory frames. I've never seen one sold or for sale. presumed number 94 as last 4 of serial are 0094.

    Marzocchi Bomber Z3 Light
    XT drivetrain w/ thumbies
    LX hubs
    Syncros ti flatbars
    crappy replacement v-brakes

    any thoughts?

    My daughter's friend asked me to buy his old bike from him this evening. While I remember the brand, I don't know anything about them.

    A little research says this is a '95 A2V and some sources say it was built by Yeti in Durango. It is a Tange Ultimate Superlight frame.

    Based on the non-driveside photo that was texted to me, it appears the original Dia-Compe cantilever brakes were replaced with v-brakes, and the fork is now a Tora. Looks like it still has the original Gripshift and Mavic rims. Don't know about the rest of the drive train.

    It is a bit newer than the stuff I know. It looks a bit small for me so I turned it down, but was wondering if it is worth anything?

    Sometimes they have nice parts on them, and they generally ride well, but not really worth much if it is fitted with their generic parts. If the size was right it could be a good beater and the fork is likely worth as much as the rest of the bike.

    Yeah well, take a quick look around there. Not too much action, and the few that are posting aren't talking much about Barracuda.

    Cooks Cranks

    I have an old set of Cooks Brothers Racing 176Official What is it Worth thread (WIW)-img_4209.jpg RSR's - probably from around 1992ish? They are well used with some of the paint scuffed off. I'd like to sell them, but have no idea what to ask. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I have not done a good job of keeping it up - it's on it's last legs so no pictures.

    It was sweet back in the day though, titanium skewers, answer a-tac stem, answer hyperlite bars, sealed bearing hubs, titanium seat rails, rockshock and more. I think it weighed in at about 22 pounds with the shock!!
