    Thanks Matt! It was a pleasure meeting you. I have had the bike for 17+ years. It never occurred to me to sell, but as I said, I really never got attached to it. My first and only love is the Fat Chance. Maybe a FC 2.0 will warm my heart.

    Enjoy it!

    1988 Mountain Goat Escape Goat

    Hi All,

    I've been thinking of selling my 88 Mountain Goat Escape Goat and I can't find any comparable bikes online to get a value. Does anyone have an idea of what vintage Mountain Goat's are worth or what a fair asking price would be? Thanks

    In briefly searching I found a few examples. They were in the $350 - $400 range but they're a few years old, so I wouldn't be certain on that. Seems like it would be worth quite a bit more to me.

    Thanks for the reply. I would think they would be worth a little more than that but maybe not. I'll just have to keep my eye out.

    I am looking for a bar stem that is 25.4mm and 1 inch, preferably less than 100mm long and has some angle to it. Very difficult to locate one. Any suggestions?

    Hi Guys,

    I've gotten my hands on a cunningham rollercam brake with a WTB brace. Its a bit rusty on some of the steel pieces, and it came with a custom titanium anti-chain suck device. Could I get a WIW?

    Good find, price can vary, but pics always help , of both the brake and that Ti chain suck device! Cheers and I'm sure you won't have a hard time getting it off your hands. BTW, where did you find it?

    I found it on a hodgepodge bike that someone pieced together. Random xt m739 rapidfire shifter brake lever combo, m730 canti brake on front, the cunningham brake on the underside u-brake mount, wtb king patent pending grease guard headset, m735 front derailleur, m732 rear derailleur, crank brothers dogbone crank, all on a 1997 diamondback arrival frame. There's an unknown bottom bracket that seems to be a pressed in titanium due to magnets not sticking to the axel, but it has threaded cups. A neighbor was using it as a commuter for a while and was selling it and so I snatched it

    Those are the best ways to come across those rare to rare'ish parts, as I said pics would be nice when you get a chance. I'm sure people will chime in with prices and maybe offers? I might be interested in the rollercam. Cheers

    Greetings from Germany

    Hello everyone, I am writing you from Germany and I own a really nice Kuwahara oncilla MTB from the early 2000's. I was always unsure if I should sell it or not. So I decided to ask some folks that answer me that question. I know the bike probably doesn't fit into the category of being vintage, but let's call it a young timer! I did actually read the forums faq, but I don't want to put the bike into ebay for 99 cent's - no not gonna happen!

    Regarding the bike's condition, yes it needs cleaning, yes it is fully functional, it need some new parts like a new chain, probably a new disk (front) and (back) and tires and some oil

    Anyway let's get to the meat, shall we?

    https://postimg.cc/image/nw3mzzr7h/

    I would love to hear your opinions, it might be that this bike don't fit any "kuwahara" fan restrictions, because it might be to new, it was one of the last models to get your hands on. I bought it around the year 2000 (I am not exactly sure) and it hat a new price of around 2.400 Euro's

    I bought it for less because it was the last years model...

    Typically photos showing the drive side of the bike and drivetrain component details are helpful in determining value. The bike is not old enough or unique enough to interest a collector and not new enough to compete with newer bikes for a buyer's attention unless it is at a very low price. The likely buyer is someone looking for an inexpensive bike to ride around the neighborhood or someone looking to buy an inexpensive bike for their kid. If you like to ride it and enjoy it, your best bet is to keep it and enjoy it.

    Pair of Raleigh Supercourse Road Bikes (circa 1974)

    I'm 75 and gave up bicycling many years ago--after my fourth knee operation made it impossible to get around a crankset. My wife and I have a pair of Raleigh Supercourses (model DL-100 purchased in 1974), originally set up by Olympic bicycle guru Matt Assenmacher. Condition is somewhere between GOOD and VERY GOOD (i.e., no mechanical issues, but definitely need a tuning after hanging unused for 40 years) and have a lot of high-quality components--Avocet II saddles, rear luggage racks, frame pump (one), Sugino chainwheels, Shimano clusters (proportional gearing), duralumin wheels, 110 psi tires, Campagnolo bar-end shifters and seat post on one of the two. Miscellaneous accessories: spokes, spoke wrench, bicycle wrenches, cable, third hand, stands, tire irons, tire repair kits, various lubricants, etc. Can someone suggest what I should be asking for the whole kit?

    Not my expertise, but looking at what has sold on ebay, $100 - $500. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...&LH_Complete=1

    Don't take that as anything remotely definitive though, sometimes there are specific frames or components that can dramatically change the price. Just giving you something to start with.

    Thanks for the link. Actually, eBay was my first look. It was the range ($100-500) that sent me scurrying for other sources.

    I've got a High Sierra that needs a new home. I bought it new in '86 (think that was the year). It's white and brown, size 21" if anyone's interested....

    A friend of mine was cleaning out his dad's garage and he gifted me with an oldie. I'm not sure exactly what year, but looks to be 83 or 84. All original parts, but needs a complete overhaul.

    Culling - Salsa a la carte

    Hello folks, took a bit of a hiatus, between work and a lunatic home building project I've been busy. That last massive undertaking is also why I'm writing here. So, I've had to cull the small herd, the P-22 R/W/B went easily and fairly as a anniversary present as did the P-29.

    In either case the last to go (holding on to brazed ones) will be my beloved Salsa A la carte with the dirt drop set-up. I'm going to first try to sell it here and Bay Area craigslist, but can you all chime in and tell me if this is a good starting. Here are a couple pics, the wheels will be Shimano XT (732?) laced to Mavic 231s. The rest is evident, but Salsa P-10? drop stem, RM-2 bars, very nice Bontrager comp fork in chrome, M900 brakes and crank, with XT front rear der......does $1,400 sound like a fair jumping off point? it's a 19.5" and hence fit a good range of heights...FYI Bonty frame also up for sale

    Well, I couldn't even get $200 for a good condition racelite a few months ago, so Bontrager values are at an all time low IMO. The switchblade is easily worth more than the Bontrager frame though. Those are borderline unobtainium at this point. I have no clue on that salsa frame.

    Thanks Man, and yeah I've seen that with the Bontys, I'll actually keep it for another days build. For the moment I'll keep the Bontrager fork on the salsa, I have a IRD Ti expedition (I think that's what they called them) fork I'll sell off load separately on ebay, that should bring about the same, no? Cheers and best

    Hi - newbie post.

    I've posted my 1983 Specialized Stumpjumper in the Classifieds. I'm the original owner, and only the seat is not original. Values on eBay (and the other boards) seem all over the place. Anyone want to share an opinion?

    Thanks,

    Don

    Ad copy:
    I purchased this 1983 Stumpjumper in Davis, CA when I was an undergraduate. I've kept it since and rarely ridden. It's time for her to go to someone that will value a true classic - 2nd production year of the Stumpumper.

    Unmodified bike - the seat and grips are new (and I have the original grips); newish tires/tubes/wires/pads.

    • Lugged Cro-Moly Frame
    • Biplane Cro-Moly fork
    • Araya 7X 26 x 1.75 Rims
    • Specialized sealed Hubs
    • Suntour XC II "Beartrap" Pedals
    • Sugino AT Crank
    • Suntour 5 speed freewheel
    • Sugino Sealed Bottom Bracket
    • Suntour Mountech Front/Rear Derailleur
    • Suntour Power Thumb Shifters
    • Specialized X 1 2 Bars
    • SR Slingshot Stem
    • Specialized alloy Headset
    • Shimano Deore XT cantilever brakes
    • Tommaselli Racer Brake Levers
    • SR Laprade Seat Post



    S/N is M3J76922 - 1983 build.

    I think the condition is excellent considering the age. Normal scratches from use. Scratches on the left crank arm from a stand I used.

    I've seen prices from $500-$800 on eBay, so I can list it there. But I thought coming to a forum where enthusiasts hang out would be a better place to start.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. I also have more photos available.

    Any comments or suggestions welcome as well.

    Thank you for looking!

    88 Fisher Montare XT

    I realize the main interest in this bike may lie in the XT components. All are in excellent shape...some scuffs on the cranks but U-Brake, shifters, derailleurs are super. I bought it recently, but afraid it's going to be too small for me. I don't really want to break it up, as the paint is excellent as are most of the decals. It's a time capsule, evidently someone just stored it away. Is this just a rider? I'm not sure I want to sell it?!

    Best, Rich

    Not sure on an exact price, these steel S Works are pretty rare, I've only seen a few of them ever, most from that year range are those M2 matrix stuff. This is a 95 I'm pretty sure. The groupset and 1in SID fork is definitely worth something though, those forks are impossible to find these days and still in demand. The M900 stuff is like vintage bike porn. Great bike. I'm sure someone else might have an actual clue if the frame is worth anything.

    Late 80's Grove X

    Would $200-$250 be a fair price for a custom Grove X 19" frame w/ Hothead bars and Hot Rod cranks. It also has matching 1st gen Rock Shocks, a first time for Grove painters.

    It needs some TLC as it has been sitting for years. No major issues other than the shocks need new seals, but new cables, brake pads and repack/replace bearings and clean the derailers and it'd be good to go.

    Wife wants it gone. I don't want to trash it due to its rather unique design.

    I have an offer for $500 shipped.

    I also happen to know where there is another... With the only '57 Chevy flame paint job Grove ever attempted. "Never Again" was the comment after that....

    Vintage Scott Boulder

    Hi Im interested in getting some feedback on this 86? Scott Boulder. I picked it up at a garage sale.
    It is all original (I think) except the huffy seat, the grips and the walmart tires. It needs to be cleaned but it seems to be in good shape.
    Full SunTure group.
    This Bike predates my own riding carreer by a few years so Im not up to speed on the groupo used but Im thinking I will clean it up and use it as a cruiser. Or maybe flip it if its worth a lot.

    Definitely mid-80s and the rollercam brakes are a plus, even if they are the "fully drilled" ones.

    Seeing more of it, I'll guess it a 1986 or 1987. You can date code the components.

    Date of Manufacture of Bicycle Components can be used to date a bike: component dating

    Here is the other kind of roller cam. I put these on my 1987 Schwinn Paramountain, but they came from a high-end Ross from about 1986-1987 (bike was bought for the brakes :-) ). I sold the Paramountain a while back...

    Yes.

    Although it is because of the spring design.

    I bought a really low mile 15.5" version of that exact bike for my daughter two years ago. I paid either $300 or $350.

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and am getting back into mountain biking after a 10-year hiatus. I'm looking for an old steel 26" wheel frame to use for a long-distance bikepacking trip in Latin America.

    I found a 1991 Trek 970 on Craigslist. It has all original components and the owner says it's in excellent condition, mostly ridden on pavement. What would be a fair price for it, assuming the owner's right about the condition?

    I've read older threads saying about $175, but I have a feeling that the value of these old steel frames has gone up the last few years.

    Thanks!

    Cool-blue Rhythm 1998 Ibis Mojo hardtail mountain bike, with 24 spd XTR groupset, 17" frame

    Hello,
    Looking to sell my trusty steed...trying to gauge the current value.

    History:
    I originally bought this bike from a coworker while working at a bike shop, Island Triathlon & Bike, circa 1999 in Honolulu (no paperwork) while stationed at Pearl Harbor. I also rode this bike in England while stationed in London. During my travels, this bike has also been ridden in Canada, CA, AZ, CO, UT, and VA.

    Reason for Selling:
    Although I love this bike and swore I would never sell it, I no longer have room to store and would rather it find a good home and actually get ridden.

    I just listed on ebay if you want to view better quality images.

    Specifics:
    This is a 1998 Ibis Mojo steel hardtail mountain bike, built with 1999 Shimano XTR 24 spd groupset and Raceface components. This bike is 98% original, one-of-a kind build.

    This frame was hand-built in Sebastopol, CA, USA. Although Ibis Cycles doesn't have a historical database for older bikes (all historical data was lost when the company was sold in 2000 to an investment group, different computer system, etc), here's the Ibis Mojo's S/N: 4361.

    Below are the detailed specifications:

    1998 Ibis Mojo, steel frame, 'Gang Green' color, Small, 17" Seat Tube, 22.25" Top Tube
    1999 Marzocchi Bomber Z2 Superfly suspension fork, 65mm travel, 1 1/8" steerer
    includes original shock pump
    1999 Shimano XTR 24 speed groupset
    XT front derailleur
    XTR Rear cassette, 12-32T
    XTR Front/Rear Shifter/Brake Levers
    XTR Front/Rear brake calipers
    Cane Creek headset
    Bontrager Race Lite wheelset w/ Kris King Hubs
    Raceface Cranks, 175; triple ring (46/34/24)
    Raceface BB, titanium spindle
    Raceface seatpost
    Raceface stems, 120mm
    Raceface bar
    Onza bar ends
    WTB/Bontrager seat
    - also have Raceface 140mm stem and Marzocchi Bomber shock pump


    * * non original: new tires, chain, XT pedals

    Geometry:
    Cyclofiend: Ibis Catalogs & Ephemera: 1998 Model Year

    Although the bike is more than 20 years old, it's still in great shape. Yes, it's been ridden and enjoyed, so, it does have some wear and tear from years of enjoyment. But, it has spent more time hanging on the wall than it's been ridden the last few years, main reason it needs a good home.

    As shown in the pictures, the non-drive side Ibis decal (downtube) is scratched from a previous shipment, and the top tube has a small 'ding' from a ride (don't recall when/how). Also some scratches around the bottom bracket from the chain popping off during past rides.

    Honestly, if I were to keep the bike, I would have it restored with a fresh coat of paint, clear coat, and new decals.

    I found a great shop that does restorations, located in MA:

    http://www.hottubes.com/

    Full restoration quote: $900 (frame only), which includes: dent repair, sand blasting, paint, clear coat, decals, all labor. The turnaround time is approximately 6-8 weeks.

    I'm sure there's plenty of other options for a cheaper price.

    In terms of replacement decals, I've contacted Ibis and they sell all decals for past models online.

    Ibis decals:
    Chuck Ibis | Chuck Spew

    Let me know if you have any questions. I have more pictures if requested.

    Hey guys I recently picked up a Klein Quantum Road bike with dura ace components the bike has seen very little use and is almost new save for a small dent in one of the seat stays and some weird goo on the seat tube looks like a bottle mount but looks super ugly.

    It has a awesome purple and gold two toned paint job it looks like its a pretty special bike but I'm not sure how much it would be worth

    It has an aluminum plaque on the down tube that says
    Gradient precision tube set
    Made in USA
    Chehalis Washington

    I don't know much about road bikes so I don't want to comment a price. Here's the ebay sold items for that model though:

    I know this is no unicorn, but I've never seen this.
    Ringle hub with offset spacers on locknuts.
    They specify, 'this side down'.
    Came from a 1995 Y22 I purchased.
    Rear hub was 'REAL' in red that would develop slop.
    Any specific value, or just shovel it onto eBay?

    If you'll look closely, you'll notice the axle ends aren't round. They are actually sort of "D" shaped, with the flat part in the 'down' direction. The idea was to help stiffen up the fork ends by giving more surface area against the dropouts to help reduce torsional flex.

    Did it actually work? I doubt you could ever measure it, but sure, it couldn't have hurt.
