Waterford 1200 Valuation

I need to sell my Waterford and would like help setting a price.

It's a 1996 that came to me used, mostly as shown in the pictures. The fork must have been replaced at some time, it's carbon I think. The bike has a mix of components. Bars, seatpost, and stem were my additions.

59 cm Seat Tube, 33 1/2'' Stand over height
Mavic Open Pro 32h rims Wheelsmith db spokes Dura Ace Hubs Continental Gator Hardshell 700x23 Tires
Ultegra FC 6500 Cranks, 53/39
Ultegra FD 6500 Dura Ace RD 7700 9 speed 12-27
Ultegra STI Levers Dura Ace 7402 Brakes
Chris King No Threadset Easton EA 50 Bars
Thompson Stem and Thompson Elite Seatpost
SellaItalia Trans Am Saddle

Bike weighs 20.72 pounds as pictured

Thanks for any feedback.

Thats a really nice mix of components and 753 frame tubing, and all of it looks to be in solid shape. The only downside, to me, is the pockmarks in the paint.
I would want something like $900 for it. No idea if thats extreme or not, but I dont think it should be. Heck, maybe thats undervaluing it...but iits a paint chipped 20 year old bike. When I think of what $900 would get me at a shop, there is no comparison that the Waterford would be the better buy.
If you cant even get $500 for it(thatd be a shock), I would think parting it out would net more.


As for the fork- that sure looks to be steel and original. Typically, carbon fork blades are much thicker, and replacement forks are typically black or chrome(unless Waterford sent a color specific replacement to the previous owner).

Well the fork is not attracted to a magnet.
Thank you for you valuation.

The CL bike market in St. Louis seems really slow this year. I haven't posted this yet.

I used to think $1400.00 was a fair price... but I'm just an eccentric old man who loves bikes.

Thanks again
