Before I part this out, wondering what someone interested in this particular bike might pay for it. Appears to be a 1992 Trek 8700 all original except for the seat and seat post. 17.5" frame. Can take more photos. Thanks! -kj-

In my area..$400ish. I paid $400 for an all-original '92 8900 a couple months ago. It's in abut 8.5 or 9/10 condition.

Your 8700 is a nice bike. I'll never grasp the penchant guys have for parting out nice, complete bikes. The result is small money compared to selling the bike intact...regardless of what the parts bring..it's still small money.

I'm thinking more like $225, but then I have one bike in the purple in that size with Manitou Answer that has been on the block for a number of moons at $265. So heck I don't know...

In my market, in the winter, $300. In Spring, around $400.

The unknown is how the used bikes market changed now that the Covid bike boom is over.

very cool bike I think it might be a collectible,I don't know about the value but 400$ seems reasonable at least for its condition

Unknown, I agree, there may be a resurgence from what I hear about the supply chain.

Depends on your market. In my area, there would be zero chance of getting $400 for the bike. Its more like $200. And it would take a while.

For those of us that live in medicare markets, to sell complete means ebay or sell cheap. Part outs in the end take no consumables and are easier to pack. Debating my options on this 1988 ish Stumpjumper right now. Not my size so keeping it makes no sense. Local sale would bring what the crankset is worth... And I would need to do work on it first, put some time and $$ into it. So I would lose $$ on it. Seems a shame to part them out. But thats the truth here in mediocre market land.


__________________
Please don't confuse ebay "asking" prices with "selling" prices. Many sellers never get their ask price. some are far from it. Value is determined once an item actually SELLS. Its easy enough to check SOLD prices.

The Stumpjumper, that's a big apples and little oranges. The Specialized is way more popular, iconic for the time. The 8700 is a blip in history, the 900 series MTB is more comparable to the Stumpy pictured.
