DYNO Taboo Tiki NIB

I'm new to the forums, but I was hoping someone could provide some insight on the DYNO Taboo Tiki. I was fortunate enough to pick up a couple collector bikes locally a few years ago. I'm toying with the idea of letting one go for wedding funds, but would like to have a better understanding of the market value.

With that said, I have a Taboo Tiki brand new, not assembled in original box with shipping labels from the bike shop in 2001. I've had a hard time ever finding how many were ever produced and have yet to see another collector with one in box. I know the used market can go from a couple hundred up to a grand depending on condition.

Any insight, tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Guys!

Never heard of it, you have to provide more information yourself.

I found they were $250 when new. Maybe $125 now but looking at the pictures it isn't a bike I would want to own. It appears to be a peddle forwad design and my back doesn't like that. Roger

There is one on eBay now for $775. It is not new in the box. Yours should be worth much more. Although its only worth what someone's willing to pay.

Right person right price. There is a club of guys in Austrailia who collect and ride these bikes and one sold to them for $1200 American a few years back. I own one and I wouldn't trade it for any thing. Every time I ride it people freak out and lose their minds over it. Can't leave it anywhere or they'd steal it the light up tiki dude on the front fender blows them away at night. Try eBay Austrailia for starters and see if you can hook a big fish there are guys out there that would buy a second one if it were NIB.
