    Opinions on value of frame

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...EBWA%3AIT&rd=1

    Just what you'd consider the frame worth. It didn't sell on ebay, and I'm wondering the value. Thanks!

    William,

    Ok, here's what I could suss out about Ken Evans. in the late 80's he was the builder
    of the Australian Olympic track and road frames. Worked with 753 Reynolds steel and
    his prices were lower than similiar well know European builders.
    So, is it worth $500? depends on a few things.
    Historically if the bike was ridden by anyone "famous", or won any
    olympic or other big name races yes its worth it.
    From a non collectors standpoint you are getting an excellent frame
    of questionable usefullness (as Crawdaddy said, are you gonna ride TimeTrials?).
    One thing you might want to consider is that I've seen a few TT frames lately
    on e-bay all brazed by the big name European makers and they sold for less than
    this guys opening price of $500.
    I got most of the info on Ken Evans by doing search on Google. I really had never
    heard of him before.

    Well, nice bike or not, seems he wants to much for it, and quite possibly, I can do better, esp considering what I'm gonna do with it.
