Thinking about selling my old school TT Bike !

It's been with me since it was born and has been a blast to race and ride on from the beginning. I've done well over 200 time trails with her and a bunch of ultra marathon cycling events. But over the last year the woods have been calling me more and more and the old TT bike has seen less pavement. Just trying to decide if it's time for her to move out of the house yet.

Pretty sweet ride.

If you don't need to sell, I don't think I'd be so quick to sell. Although, the paint job wouldn't have been my choice.

If kept in good condition, my guess is that it has seen most of its depreciation, the value will either hold steady, or slowly appreciate.

You’ve given that bike so many cosmetic transformations I think you would regret selling it. I’ll suggest you give it one more paint job like maybe a van Goch Starry Night but with a cycling theme, or better yet do up a version of Dali’s Persistance of Memory which would fit right in with the time trial theme. Than hang it on a wall in your living room or workshop area. I really do think you’d miss it.

Depending on condition and model, that front HED 3 or Specialized trispoke is worth some coin.

Keep it. Itís a rideable museum piece.
