Muddy Fox

My husband died recently and has left me with a Muddy Fox Mountain Bike MBMF 26B made by Araya and has the name S&G Cycles printed on it. If my memory serves me right it is about 18 years old and has been used approximately ten times during that period. My question is:
Does it have any resale value?
Is it collectable?
Should I keep it or sell?
Would appreciate any help on this.

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. Unfortunately I cannot help you with this, but I'm sure somebody here will be able to.

That's terrible. Very sorry for your loss.

Muddy Fox is a model from the UK. There may be a niche market for older ones as collectable but I doubt it. I've seen one late 80's Muddy Fox mtb frame on ebay and I should have bid on it because it went for $10 even though it was made of really nice steel. Araya is the brand of wheels.

If you post some pics in the classic and vintage area it's possible someone might know more about it. I don't think too many people in the US are familiar with Muddy Fox. I don't believe they were imported here much if at all. They're still in business and are not currently available outside the UK as far as I know. I'd be curious to see photos of it.

That would be a Muddy Fox Adventurer (or Explorer), Chrome Moly frame, 12 gears (maybe 16). Was about 250GBP when new. I bought one in 1984 and still have it.
You could try <www.muddyfox.com> (Essex, England) and ask them. They have a web-based enquiry form on their web site.

I don't suppose it's worth a lot but I often get people going all "retro" about it when I take it out for a spin.
