Fair price for forks?

8 posts in this topic

I'm going to start an ebay auction for a set of 2001 650R forks and front wheel. What is a fair price for the forks alone, and the wheel alone. I was thinking $300 for the forks and $100 for the wheel as reserve prices. The forks have < 500 miles on them before a USD conversion. What's fair?

when eBaying, I set my Reserve at the minimum I would accept, and start it low .. Im not sure what your forks and wheel are worth, but I would guess your mentioned Reserves are in the ballpark .. forks should be worth more than $300, so my guess is that you will have some activity in your bidding .. :thumbsup:

Not meaning to piss in your Wheaties or anything but they're worth what anybody is willing to pay. Most people aren't looking to up grade stock parts with stock parts. I bought a pair less than a year ago for $150. I got them just to have in case I have a need. Most people aren't as supid as me or hoard like I do.

What did you pay for your USD forks?

I hope you didn't buy brand new.

CRF450 and CR500 USD forks go on ebay for $300.

Now the wheel on the other hand might have more takers as they do come in more handy.

I picked up a set of Cannondale Ohlins forks (carbon copy of CR's) for $400 on ebay. Easy swap, just had to machine a few spacers. I notice the old Cannondale parts all over ebay lately.
