Default Yo Eddy on Ebay!

A sweet looking lavender/yellow... no bidders yet at $1k, however, it doesn't have the rigid forks and the year of MFG is not clear:

Default Hey There!

Hey There! I just picked up that Yo Eddy Team that was on eBay, after it did not get a winning bid. I paid 880.00, which is high, but the condition seems amazing, have not seen another in this good of shape. I'll follow up with a report on year and condition once it gets here. I have wanted a Fat since the early 90's and I am so excited to finally have one.

Default Thanks for the input!

Thanks for the input. One thing I have noticed with our favorite sport is that no one (from what I can tell) has put together a comprehensive value guide on what things are really worth. Example, what is a new old stock late 1980's Mountain Goat frame worth? 100 bucks? 1000 bucks? I know the answer is that it is worth what someone is willing to pay, however, it is hard to determine what to pay when there is no basis for establishing a value. That is what took me so long to get into a Fat, it seems like "value" is all over the board, with people getting what seems like great deals and others over paying for winter projects. Any thoughts on this? I know having a value guide goes against a free market and all, but at least it gives a buyer some idea of what they should pay and a seller some idea of what they should ask...

Also, here are a couple of pictures. I will join the registery once it gets here. Looking forward to meeting new friends and exchanging info!

Default Yo

Hey,

This bike is really nice if you can ride an XS frame size and not over priced. I notified the seller that the size in the description was wrong, but he/she never changed it in the relisted ad.

As far as a price guide for vintage MTB's - good luck on that. Sort of like making a price guide for vintage cars - strictly market driven AND subjective.

Do you think anyone would have guessed this:

Not me that's for sure.

More $$$ than your entire bike!
