Brand "new" 98 Scott Frame

I've just been round to a mates house only to find a brand new Scott Octane FX-1 frame in mango/black sat in his room.

Apparently he was given it and doesn't have a use for it so might sell for a sensible offer.

But how do you value a new 98 frame?

Any suggestions?

(Sorry to post such an odd question for my 1st thread!)

Thanks
Sam:confused:

If he can't use it, make him any reasonable offer. If you can post a picture, and we'll offer some opinions to its' value.

I'm afraid i can't get hold of any pics, unless i pop down and take a digi picture, which might be a bit cheeky(i'll ask him tomorrow!)

If it's any help it is single pivot, replacable hanger, disc brake ready, and the shock appears to be Scotts own with a oil reservoir for the coil shock mounted on the seat tube. (And as i said it's mint, looks like its been built once)

I can't get any info from the net on the bike, so was hoping someone used to own one!

It maybe a bit oldskool now, but it would only replace my Zaskar frame (with XT, 217s, RST mozo pro 4.5s!!, etc...)

......those were the days!!

Thanks once again
Sam
