    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.

    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
    ē includes original shock pump
    1999 Shimano XTR 24 speed groupset
    ē 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.

    Have a 1997 Santa Cruz Heckler in good condition. Trans red w/ polished swing arm. Size large (18"). Mostly original with some nice upgrades including Marzocchi Bomber shock, Chris King Headset. Also have original documentation. Selling to make room. Thoughts

    1991 Cannondale SE Omega. Smaller size (17"). Good condition. Mavic headset, no Cooks though. Red spring on shock. Xt seatpost binder (not mavic).

    Also has a Rockshox RS1 on it, circa 1990 probably. Non-functional, doesn't hold air. Cracked top cap. Otherwise good shape. RS1s go for between $50 for "parts" and $200 if they still hold air. I considered this a parts fork.

    Stripped the frame of components and Sold both frame/fork together for $150 + shipping.

    From my research, a complete SE Omega with Cooks and Graftons would probably sell for between $500-$1000 on ebay, if marketed to the retrobike crowd, and in a larger size.

    In my case I just wanted to move the bike since the fork was dead and hard to rebuild, and the size was too small for me to really enjoy it. Thought I might fill folks in case they had these and were wanting to sell.

    Trophy frame with Lawwill Leader 3

    What do you guys thing its worth?
    That's a good one. The Leader 3 seems to be hovering around $125-$200 depending on condition, but the Trophy frame is a bit more rare, so prices aren't easily established. Worse is that information about Trophy Products frames is near non-existant. We know that Lawwill worked with Trophy to produce some early prototype DH bikes (that would later be sold as Yeti's) but your hardtail was nearly identical to the Lawwill Legend full-suspension bike in the front triangle.

    Usually, retrobike prices are determined by the rarity of the bike, where it was made/by whom, and the amount of rare bits attached to it (Graftons, Cook Bros Cranks, Paul's). A rare frame with a unique fork and really common components isn't worth as much as a more common frame with lots of really rare aftermarket add-ons. Cook Brothers cranks sell for $300 on their own, combine that with some other rare components on a good riding frame and you can hit $600-$1000 pretty quick.

    Your options are start it at maybe $500 with good pictures on Retrobike.co.uk or try to sell it via ebay and see what it bids up to. The only way this bike is worth any money is if you're willing to ship it. Local sales of vintage/retro stuff are abysmal. You gotta find the right buyer, and that takes a global audience.

    You may want to track down contact information for Joe Lawwill to see if he might explain who was welding and where Trophy Products was based. Building the history of the bike might increase its value.

    I've been wondering lately on pricing older frames and the demand for them.

    What would you say about my 1996 Raleigh MCC-8 Carbon fiber frame?

    I believe it's made in the US and from comments such as "I didn't know Raleigh made a carbon fiber frame back then" I believe it's rare but maybe not that popular.?

    Exactly. It's a relatively rare bike, but they aren't that popular, largely because the history of those frames isn't super well known. It sold for a single year (96). Raleigh USA was building its frames in Kent, Washington. Whether this frame was built at the Kent plant or elsewhere is up for debate. There is a slight possibility like earlier special frames (the Tomac Litespeed and replicas) it was produced by Raleigh Special Products in Nottingham, UK.

    Knowing more about the frame, like where it was built and how many were produced might help it's sale.

    As with all things vintage/retro, you've gotta cast your ad far and wide, and be willing to ship.

    Motiv with M737 from attic

    Hello,

    I am a bike guy and while I know all of these parts on this bike, I cannot find out anything about it.

    the parts are all Shimano XT M737 and are in quite good shape ( crank is nearly pristine). I have no idea on what it is worth, but this is a Motiv T6 Aluminum frame with Cr-Mo fork. The tires appear to be period correct Ritchey MegaBite Zmax - Everything is in great shape.
    See the pictures below. Any ID help would be appreciated.

    The components are worth more than the bike complete. $100.

    Unfortunately Motiv was long associated with cheap department store bikes, and Costco even sold the brand for a while. They did make some nicer road bikes, and back in the 80's they had some of the first "real" MTBs, but by 90's they were cheap, mass produced, factory built frames.

    With a few exceptions, if you can't track down the specific builder/welder of a bike, the value drops off quickly, unless the whole brand was associated with high-end bikes (Cannondale, Specialized, Bridgestone, Klein, etc). Motiv was not one of those brands.

    Vintage Breezer Storm

    I've got a Breezer Storm that I bought new in 1995. It was dead stock at the time and probably a '92 or 94 model year. It's currently built up as a single speed.

    I'd like to free up some space and since this comes from such a legend in MTB, I figured that I might find someone here who would value it as much as I have.

    Any idea what this bike mike go for?Official What is it Worth thread (WIW)-img_1733.jpg

    1996 Klein Pulse II

    Time to get rid of this old gem.

    1996 Klein Pulse II, Rock Shox Judy XC with speed springs, Kooka crank, Pauls love levers, Shimano XT components with (newer) Sram attack shifters (also have original era correct x-rays), Nuke Proof hubs, Mavic 217 SUP rims, ect. I believe everything is era correct aside from cables, shifters, grips, and tires.

    It is in fantastic mechanical condition, completely rebuilt ~100 miles ago. There is some cosmetic wear and tear, notably three dents in the top tube that have been there forever and are unsightly but don't seem to be anything that would cause a failure.

    WIW? Looks like some of these components are going for quite a bit on ebay. Am I better off parting it out? I'd rather not but I cannot imagine it going for anything near what the sum of all its parts are going for individually. Also, where is a good place to sell this? Here?? Do I dare put this it on ebay!?! It is in W. Michigan if anyone local is interested.

    TIA for any insight!

    Something like $400 if you just threw it on ebay as a complete bike. The components are worth way more though. I hate suggesting parting out a bike, but you could probably get 2 or 3 times as much selling everything separately.

    Another approach would be to sell off the really high end parts separately and replace them with used Shimano LX level parts. Then you can sell the bike locally. If your frame is not pristine there might not be that much interest in it. The Covid-19 situation created a shortage of bikes and good used bikes sell for decent money. This approach only makes sense if you do your own bike wrenching.

    Without any decent pictures of the parts except for the cranks, if it's XTR, I'd just part it out and sell on ebay. I don't think that bike is going to sell for that much. There is a certain market for the wheels, but again, part it out.

    NIB you're looking at ~$250+ pretty easily, maybe quite a bit more since new ones essentially don't exist anymore at all.

    Kestrel CSX HED XT

    Hey guys! what's going on??....I had purchased a Kestrel CSX a while back. It was used as a commuter..The Rockshox Judy fork was replaced w/ a suspension corrected Surly 1x1...Overall a good little commuter. It was just too small for me....so I posted it up for sale, It has period specific XT goodies along w/ HED hoops ( not sure if they are the dyed fiberglass...or carbon) and the whole thing is in good condition...not great..not very good...just a solid good. Anyway, I posted it up for 1G..then dropped the price to $800. I've been getting emails telling me that it's not worth $400...and why am I wasting everyone's time...etc... I think $800 is fair for a vintage MTB W/some cool stuff on it right??? I would agree that the wheels are the value to the bike...but even those (to the right person) should be worth almost what i'm asking right??? Thanks in advance for your input.

    Reply: Kestrel CSX HED XT

    Cool parts or no, the honest truth is that this is currently a mashed-up commuter/cruiser. It's going to take time and effort to disassemble and deal with the unwanted parts. Also, in my experience, the sorts of folks who want old HED wheels are usually pretty picky, and probably already have a completely different build in mind for that wheelset, so the wheels and frame aren't even all that likely to stay together.
    IMHO, if you are dead set on maximizing your return, completely disassemble the bike. Take LOTS of close-up pictures of the stripped frame to show its exact condition. Sell the stripped frame, the wheels, and all the other random parts separately. Maybe all together you could get close to $800 for everything, but it will take time, effort and patience.

    Diamondback Racing Axis from 1996. Numbered as 312/500. Condition is 9/10 and Iím going to rebuild the fork before listing.







    It appears to be the same as the Axis R, which was the UK version. Over here it was known as the Team version.

    Having trouble finding out anything specifically on this limited edition run, but the bike is gorgeous!

    Ti versions seem to go in the $900-$1k range so I imagine this would be closer to $600-$700, but as itís a limited edition that is a bit of a wild card. Appreciate any input!

    That fork isn't doing you any favors, rebuilt or not, but it's really hard to value it because it's hard to tell what parts are on it. Nice parts can really increase the price but it's not possible to tell if there is anything nice on it.

    Unless these are highly sought after, which I find no indication they are, although I don't follow diamonback sales at all so I may be wrong on that, I would think more than $300 or so would be tough to get these days. You could compare it to something like Bontrager ti vs. race lite, the ti frames can still go for $1000 and the racelite's now go for $150 - $200 on a good day. But the components on this aren't going to make it worth a ton, so you're completely relying on how much desire there is to own this frame.

    Thatís fair, appreciate the input. I suppose itís like anything else; value is what someone is willing to pay for it!

    1999 Schwinn Homegrown Factory Suspension XTR (Team Race Bike) Ė Medium - All Original

    I can't seem to revive my old account that goes all the way back to 1999 here on mtbr.com, where I originally purchased this bike.

    I bought this bike new in 2000 from the leftover unused Schwinn Factory Racing teams bike 1999 stable. It is the top spec (All XTR) version, built and setup by the racing team mechanics.

    All original parts are intact except for the grips which were getting a bit sticky.

    The bike is still completely rideable. The front Rock Shox Sid still holds pressure and provides great dampening and the rear Rock Shox Coupe Deluxe moves smoothly.

    I still have the original MTR Racing Raptor tires the bike came with and I remounted them for the original look.

    I have ridden this bike on and off for the last 20 years. It has always been well maintained and never ridden harder than light XC.

    The front shifter levers will only engage the bottom and middle gear, it isnít a problem with the derailleur. I havenít spent much time figure out why as I rarely find myself wanting the top gears these days.

    I have an original pivot replacement kit still in the package. I was told that part wore out fast, but I have never felt it had enough play to need to be replaced.

    I will also throw in the original Time ATAC pedals that were on it for most of its life.
    If you happen to be a size 10 you can have the vintage Shimano shoes that with the mounted clip ins.

    I am not sure what this bike is worth, and there arenít many examples for comparison.

    I was planning to ask $800 based on the few similar examples I have found sold recently, but please let me know if you think I am way off the mark.

    Spec Sheet:
    Color: Bass Boat Blue / Polished
    Size: Medium (17)
    Fork: Rock Shox Sid XC SL
