If you where my kid, and sold that bike behind my back. You would then better hope you made enough to get your own place to live. That a pretty nice looking old bike. You best leave it alone, unless your pops is afraid of you.

yeah. in your OP, you said "a few years ago", but those forks look to be one of the very early Judys (mid-late 90s).

sorry to burst your bubble, but the bike just isn't worth much.

Maybe $300 if you're lucky.

It's twelve years old. It has a Judy XL and an eight speed cassette. It's likely a 1998 model.


Look what $1599 buys these days:

Five inches of travel on both ends, XTR and hydraulic disc brakes. Why would anyone pay that much for a klunker like yours?

My guess would be 18.5 inch frame. It might say on the seat tube just above the BB
