Very tough sale in a local market as people are looking for complete bikes, not frame sets. Generally, Treks from that era are under appreciated. If it were my size and local, I'd pay $50 for it as I have multiple rigid frame MTB donors right now. Love the paint job, and I like the high end Treks from that era.

if it just has paint missing, no dents agree with $50 to $75. A complete bike can be purchased for $250 to $300 if your patient.

I just picked up a 970 Trek on Friday two days ago. Itís dirty and itís not original. (Thatís why no one wants it.) But it was free at Missoula Freecycle. Iíll get it up and running but not original. I donít know who Iíll give it to but let me know if you want the frame/fork for the cost of shipping.
I have a Red Bianchi Grizzly thatís my current rebuild. So Iím scrounging for parts. I love it.

Someone will snap it up at your asking price! You may want to start a thread on this in the C&V for sale forum and list the size. Iíve kept my eye out for a 970 but they donít pop up often.

Out of curiosity, what color and size? And if you know what year.

Iím thinking the interested parties will need as much information as if they were purchasing. Free to me still involves about $150 shipping. Itís posted on Craigslist for Helena Montana. Look under bike parts.
Still free for those of you interested Bike Forums members. I donít think I can post the pics here but Craigslistís has Ďem. I canít do better than this.
