I dont ride my track bike much (velodrome's too far), so I'd like to sell it. Its a 2003 Orbea Altec track frame built nicely and in the beautiful Euskatel colors. I'd like to see $750 for the frame and fork (it retails for $1200, and I've ridden it once), but I've not seen any high end track stuff on eBay.
Is there a market for this kind of stuff?
I'd let the whole bike go for $1,200.
its a 60cm.

I found the key to getting nice high bids on Ebay, besides having a good track record, are a thorough description and NICE photos including close-ups of the item you're selling. I've sold a Santana tandem, Cannondale MTB, an Ibis Scorcher, and countless number of components on Ebay.

Based on the prices I have seen for scratchbuilt fixies, I would say you can make your money on ebay, the other thing is to wait until fixed season. In the fall more guys are looking for winter training bikes.

I have been looking to try a track bike and it is my size.
I am sure it is a great deal but it is out of my price range.
Thanks for the eye candy though!!!!

I disagree. I have been looking at track stuff on ebay and have seen some sweet rides!
Good luck and I hope you get what you want out of it.

That is a great looking bike! I hope you get your money out of it. I wish I had a velodrome localy, I could really get into that type of riding / racing.
Thanks for the compliments, guys. The bike is stunning in person. the paint is amazing (as I said, there are no decals on the frame - that's all paint).
When this bike is sold, I'll build something new and just as cool.
That is a beautiful bike! You will probably atlest get close to what you are looking for it. I've seen a few orbea track bikes on their and they go quite high. If you don't you're other option is to strip it down and sell all the components seperately.
I was thinking about stipping it down, but nah. This is a killer deal for someone who wants a high-end track bike and doesn't want to hunt down top quality track-specific parts.
