I am in a quest to bike downsize and want to find a good home for my yellow 8 Speed frame. I want to come up with a fair price but at the same time don't want to be taken for price granted. This frame is in really good shape with only a few nicks near the chainstays and some cable rub around the head tube and rear brake area.

Suggestions? I thought I saw a brand new one go for around a grand but not sure. Thanks in advance.

Completed eBay listings always provides a realistic idea. I did a quick check and found this one that sold for $600 "Buy-it-Now" on July 12.

that's for a complete bike. Guessing a frame would get you $100-200 tops, but what do I know. Can't see what's so special about the Bridgestone to command big $$.

A grand for an RB-1, only the frame, not a complete bike? Man, that seller found a pretty big sucker then. Happens from time to time. Even for a complete RB-1, that's pretty high. :frown2:

On Craigslist, I usually see complete RB-1s going for $600-800. Assume the frame is half of that, and your RB-1 frame is prolly worth $300-400, tops. You can try for higher (i.e. wait for a sucker), but you may be waiting awhile. Or you may get lucky and find that sucker, who knows? Good luck.

Too bad you don't have an XO-1, those go for quite a lot.

I think I got mine on ebay for $700--in pretty nice shape with Super Record.

What size is yours? Any photos?
