Place on line for accurate values?

Beside bicycle blue book is there a place that can give me accurate values for bikes?

I have noticed that BB can be way off in either direction. Some times very high were my market will not come even close to what the BB value is. The reverse is also often true where I can get way more than the BB.

If some one has a more accurate source of values that would be much appreciated!

You are not the first one who has asked for a vintage price guide. Mike Kone did one, it shows up on the sheldonbrown site somewhere I think still, way out of date and directed to only top tier bikes.

The market is too thin and not documented well enough to be definitive. Anyone who would attempt one would upset many and have few purchasers.

There are a few brands that get followed closely by owners of the brands, and sometimes a public transaction (ebay) gets plenty of folk all upset some as they think it is too low and others as it appears too high.
