Kona Stinky from 2004

Hello all!

Does anyone have an idea how much is a reasonable price for a never-before-ridden 2004 model Kona Stinky?
I know a place selling one for 1500.
I want to pick it up, but the price seems steep for a bike that's a couple of years old....or am I just being cheap?

1500 in what currency?

If AU dollars and its new I'd say that a pretty decent price.

I would say that's high. My buddy rides an '04 that he picked up new for $1399 at Xmas of '04. Used ones are going for about $900-1100.

Havn't all the Stinky frames since like 01 been basically the same? I always hated the look of the Stinky's but I've been seriously considering picking one up since I really want a fully and they seem to be everywhere for pretty good prices. I like the orange and black that the 04's came in the best as far as the color schemes go.

Regular 'ol Stinky. Not a deelux or Primo.
Also, 1500 American $.

I liked the Rocky Mtn RMX too but I hear the back end is full of bugs.
Thanks for the input, guys!

S dhop near me was selling a slightly used one, shop demo only, for 750. So I'd say that is high

It's not the '04 but I did find the '05

Seems like an alright deal to me. You can probably bargain a hundred bucks off or so.
