Grandis Frame Set Value?

How much would you value this Grandis Superleggera(?) frame set at? It looks very much like the gorgeous green one @Lascauxcaveman acquired a while back.

I've seen newer models on Ebay with asking prices from $400 (worse condition) to $700 (better condition). There was one (also newer and in better condition) that sold for $500 some time ago. However, as a newbie I'm having trouble figuring out where on that range it belongs.


Thanks!

I'd probably expect 3-400ish on the bay. I might put this on our forum at $350 and save yourself the ebay fees.

Nice frame to bad it's so tiny, it would probably sell for more if it had been 56cm or so.

Ah, I should've been clearer in my original post. It's being offered on ebay for $549 so I asked here to try and figure out a reasonable offer to make. Will I get blocked for offering 300/350 with such a high asking?

I'm hoping that will work in my favour, as I'm planning to make an offer on it rather than sell it. I'm 5'3"

Worst he can say is no. A lot depends on patience...if he waits a year, he might get a buyer. I think 549 is high'ish, but you're still talking a fairly limited supply of top end bikes, and Grandis are starting to gain in stature.

I don't remember what I paid for my Grandis.

I'll give it a shot and see what happens. I looked through his feedback history and it looks like he has accepted a bunch of offers in the past 6 months. Fingers crossed...
