    Vintage Scott Super Limited Bikes - 1991

    I am trying to get an idea of the value of two vintage Scott mountain bikes. They are from 1991, the first year Scott made mountain bikes. We bought them for $742.50 each in Alaska. They were used very little and have not been ridden in over 20 years. All the equipment is original. One is a 16" frame and the other is an 18" frame. The frames are 7005 Aluminum T6 heat treated. The components are Suntour XC limited. The brakes are Dia-Compe 986. The bikes were sold to us with kickstands which seemed odd. In the photos you will see the bear bells we put on the handlebars for riding trails. I realize they are super outdated, so I want to price them reasonably.

    The Sun Tour Limited stuff wasn't terribly high end (not that you said they were).

    Other than being seemingly new, they don't offer a lot to add value, though maybe to someone with a serious Scott fetish, they might.

    I'd go ~ $300 OBO and let the haggling begin when you get an interested buyer.

    Thanks for your input. I wasn't too far off on an asking price. I was thinking about starting at $350 and then haggle down from there.

    You'll likely end up closer to 2 bills is my guess, but, as a buddy always says, askin's free.

    Too many market forces against *second tier brands* already, add 26", rigid, and smallish frames, no real collector value, just first bike for the kids, or commuter sort of buyers.

    YMMW, good luck with the sale!

    FYI regarding the earliest year Scott made mountain bikes:
    I worked in an outdoor store (Alpine Ski & Sports) and we had some Scott bikes we sold in at least 87 or 88.
