This is "British Only Austria", I find a general rule of thumb is to halve the price asked to come up with a realistic value.

I will sell mine if I get what I want for it, I know what I paid for it and the amount of work involved getting it to look half decent. If not I will just keep it as I won't be "giving it away"

Paul & William, just to clarify my comment was not directed at yourselves or what you decide to ask for your respective chain guards, it was merely my observations of this particular seller, it was not meant to come over any other way.

No worries Duncan :beer: will agree with you though that the aforementioned retailer is a tad on the expensive side

Paul I have been a bit slow on this. If you do have a chainguard for sale please use either the adverts feature or the section of the forum dedicated to advertising. Advertising is not allowed on the general forum
