Default Ti Fat - What is it worth?

I have a 1999 Ti Fat M/L frame (serial no. TF ML 1180). I never built it up and I don't anticipate doing so any time soon, so am considering selling it. Can anybody give me any idea of its worth? Thanks!

On the open market, that could do anywhere from $1200 to close to $2,000. I'd say that $1500 would be a nice place to start, but if it is really unblemished and new it could go for more.

Great frame!

....happy to have finally found a clean 80s Fat Team Comp with a box crown fork

Why are you surprised it doesn't have a BOI? It's a 99, why would it have had a BOI unless it was originally owned by a weight weenie or retro grouch?

no I'm not surprised, I thought only a Ti BOI would perfect it. For such frameset I would browse a lot of bills on the table!

Thanks for the feedback on my frame. Not sure I'll sell it, but it seems criminal to have it hanging in my office for another year, begging to be built up & ridden.

MikeyNYC, do you know the serial number for the last one made? Maybe it's ti-fat-man's #1181?

Nader, sorry, no BOI fork.
