Title is wrong; apologies in advance if the title is a bit of a clickbait, . I'm selling a 1993 red Bridgestone RB 1 with the biplane fork. Here's a pic of the RB 1 but I'm selling it as a frame/fork/headset (though I'll be happy to throw in the original stem and 26.8 seatpost as well). The RB 1 is a 57cm frame.
Edit: seeking a valuation.

This isn't the 'for sale' section.

Perhaps I wasn't clear in my original post but I am asking for a valuation.

LOL, gotcha. In my somewhat overheated market I would say around 300.00, as these are pretty collectable.

$300 was also the round number that came to my mind. Looks to be in good condition. May take a while for the right buyer to see it.

I think even in this depressed market, you could get more than $300. The Bridgestone premium is real! Patience will be your friend, if you want to get top dollar. Spring is here, so that should help. If you look at ebay sold listings, they would indicate the frame alone might sell for just under $300 and whole bike for substantial more. https://www.ebay.com/itm/256391632408? - $750 sold comparable

Edit: I obviously did not read OP very well, Frame & Fork, was what they were asking about

RB-1 has a strong market in the US. Frame is a tad small so wont fit most men. 300$ sounds good for frame and fork.
