Well considering Ness is somewhere between Slovenia and Zurich right now I cant really offer it for sale. She loved it so much she wouldnt ride it! However if someone came along and offered close to what it is worth then im sure she would consider it!

OK lets be realistic here. It is worth between 17.5-20k. But that is because everything is factory, Frame, suspension, crank, then every thing else is highly modified. But weather someone is willing to pay that is another story....[/b]

17.5k ??? 8k would be a realistic price, it might be worth alot more but i doubt anyone would pay more than that.

Well a bike like that is a collector's item, so normal market price would not apply.

Correct, because unlike any other blinged out DH bike, you can't buy one anywhere else.

Yes you can. Chris kovariks old Intense m3 ( Pretty much identical to this except red) is for sale on Farkin.net for 6500. 17.5k is rediculous. Bloody sick bike tho! :thumbsup:

My favourtie bike was the M3 I built for her for the worlds last year. Man that was a trick bit of gear. Hand made light weight M3 frame. Heaps lighter than production. Different bb from standard. Custom baby blue manitous, we had the saint crank machined, fitted with a carbon fibre MRP, light weight wheels etc. Lightened pedals, hand made pieces all over it. We even got one of steve peats old lightened CNCed front sprockets.That bike till this day is the best pedalling M3 on the planet. Without talking it up to much that was the goal to make that thing pedal like a xc bike cause she had been injured and found pedalling hurt her wrist. It helps cause she is so light that weight can be stripped out of it quite aggressively. When we put it on the scale it was 4 kilos lighter than her M3 she had raced at the world cups and we thought they were light! It is only 2 races old. She wont ever ride it again cause the M6 is here now and that bike is to flash to ride she rekons.

With so many one-off parts (inc the frame....) it's not difficult to imagine it's value is about $20K - My run of the mill 6.6 with no custom parts at all and nothing overly bling is insured simply at retail value - and is still over $13K. ;)

That's not to say someone will pay $13K for it - that's something different all together. If I was to sell I'd be looking around half that or less, same with most bikes.
