I guess it's not really a vintage bike but... I've got a line on a mid-late 90's Merlin.
It has a mix a components, none of which are really all that great but he doesn't want to do a frame only sale.
He's getting the serial number to me today so I can accurately ID the frame. I've been wanting a Ti frame for awhile now and the thing fits pretty well as it's setup, so it can only get better from there. It's in good condition, it's seen some miles but has been thoroughly maintained.
What would you guy's consider a fair offer for this bike considering the components aren't really all that great (old mavic/shimano mix)? I don't want to low ball him, but I also think he's expecting a little bit more then he should in regards to the components.
