Default How much should I offer for a......

Saratoga made Yo Frame????
Here is the bad.
The front derallier cable stop has snapped off (ARRGH!) and has a large poorly touched up scratch on the rear non drive side stay.
It is not a custom color.

Now....how much should I offer if it has a rigid fork also?

Sorry dont know if it is 1" or 1.12"

Thanks everyone.

Shooting for #6.

Wish me luck.

Depends a lot on condition. The broken cable stop sucks. Is the rigid fork a Fat segmented fork? Any rust? BB threads good?

I've bought and sold Saratoga Fats frame only in the $450-850 range, but that was years ago now. I think the prices have settled a little bit.

If it is your size, in good condition, and you don't mind running a 1x8 or similar set up....$350-500 is the range of most prices I see.

Thanks for your insight Nate!
I dunno about the 1x8 thing......
That cable stop is really bothering me
To do a good repair would require complete new paint

I was thinking in the $150-$200 range (but as the Potential Buyer I always err to the low end)

As far as rust and bb threads I will go back and examine more closely

But I thought that the later Yos had weep holes and were less of a rust risk?
The saratoga Yos are generally considered less desirable than the Sommervilles..
Yes?
No?

If there is a Fat segmented fork there... buy it.
