Late Ramp Room Condor
« on: December 06, 2017, 03:06 PM »
I realise that "what's it worth" threads are frowned upon but those of you that know me know that I'm not a collector/builder/trader/flipper/dickhead/insertabusehere/etc, so I'm hoping for some slack...

I have what I believe was one of the last Ramp Room Condor frames. I bought it new from Trend in Texas (now Empire) and directly afterwards all manufacturing went to Taiwan. I rode this bike from 96 until about '06ish.

I thought I'd keep it forever. I'm not into memorabilia really but this could hang on the wall of my garage and remind me of all the pain it put me through lol. 

Anyway, I have a couple of biggish bills to pay and I'm looking at stuff I could potentially sell. I approached Graham Steel on Facebook for some advice but aside from that I've not really done owt about it.

My question is; is it worth selling at the moment?  I know the Ramp Room stuff is climbing in value but I don't really pay that much attention. I really don't know if it's worth something, nothing or a lot.

Advice please my midschool chums  :)

Itís not worth anything, better give it to me rob, Iíve got a thing for old Condors  :LolLolLolLol: :daumenhoch:
Iíve seen a few on ebay over the last year or so, donít think they made as much as youíd think, they sell better over the pond it seems. Are you sure you want to let it go? Pretty cool frame to have up on the wall!

Edit : Sorry Rob, having a moment. I was thinking of Big Daddy frames Iíd seen on ebay!

Hi buddy - you well?

This is the thing; I'm kinda happy for it to hang on the wall. But....  Needs must and bills have to be paid. I have other stuff I can flog too (not bmx related) but that stuff I know is climbing in value month on month so I'm keen to hang on if possible.

From the little snooping I've done, it appears there was only ever 200 or so of these things made so how many exist now; well it can't be that many.

The time of year obviously doesn't help I know.

Plodding along as usual, howís things? Iíll give you a text at some point if thatís cool?
You are correct, there wasnít a huge amount coming out the ramp room then as HB were scaling up overseas 👍 is that the Condor you had those Eastern prototype forks in?
Shame you have to think about letting it go, but I hear you as regards to money...the root of all evil as they say!

Of course mate - text or call anytime. You have my number yes?

Yes, this is the frame I ran the Eastern forks in. I've had three Condors over the years, a 94, this RR 96 and a '12 Anniversary. Sold the 94 to fund the next one which came with Superforks and a Bomber stem. Bent the forks of course and binned them, and sold the stem in more recent times to Danny Harris.  The Anniversary one I sold to Stewart Rockliffe when I fell into the Blyther that I ride now and I'm pleased to say he built it up and is riding it - as Mat would want.

Since starting this thread I've read some values on FB; with forks (which I don't have of course),  £500-700. With that in mind, I think I'll keep hold of this one for now as I suspect I'll struggle to hit £300 for a rider condition frame only.

And I'm not fussed at all if I'm honest. Perhaps I'm a more sentimental fooker than I think... :LolLolLolLol:
