    How much can I expect to get for a GT LTS-3?

    I have am late 90's GT LTS-3 frame and marzocchi bomber fork.

    it'll get sold with: FSA pig headset, kalloy adjustable stem, shimano sealed BB, and an alloy post (it's an odd size for these frames).

    I replaced the elastomer, and all but the chainstay bushings (they were still perfect),.......the frame has some cable rub, and chips, and had a low speed tumble (GT downtube decal is scratched on one side), but is straight, no cracks, and works like it should,.....the fork has the same cosmetic defects, but the stanchions are absolutely PERFECT, no leaks, and still buttery smooth when ridden.

    how much can I expect to get on ebay from something like this?(or how much should I ask)
    I realize it's old, and obsolete, and something of an oddball MTB, so I'm trying to see if it's even worth selling, or because I wont get but $200 for it, I should give to a friend or something.

    thanks for any input or advice.

    I would just keep it for a backup bike.
    "harder" is not a very good safeword.

    I dont know much about the bike, but unless your strapped for cash to put towards a new(er) I would keep it. Or as you said give it to a buddy.

    yeah,....he's an old friend that has gotten a little fat, and was asking me about bicycles because he wanted to start riding to get his weight under control.

    this'll be a better birthday present than sold for $150 on ebay

    thanks for the tips guys
