When I registered my bike with campus police at the begining of this semester I added up all my mod's and the original price of the bike. All together it was $1,925.
I will try to get a pic up at some point. It's a Jamis ventura with new Ultegra.

Hard to say. I started out with a Motobecane LeChamp SL, then changed the wheels once, then the saddle, then bought a Marinoni Piuma frame and swapped the parts over, then went through a couple of different saddles and a new seatpost, in the meantime trading and selling some of the unwanted parts. I figure I have about $1800 in the bike as it stands now, but I know if I went to buy a new version in a LBS, it would probably push $3000
