Normally if the bike was used for a couple years lets say and was in good condition I ask half of new. In this case that would be $425. Being it basically hasn't been used I was thinking of asking $700.

Cheap option would be to get a new spindle. $10-$30 and they usually come with the bolts too. Use loctite on the bolts and your good as new. Are they 8 or 48 spline?

I always wondered how they attracted the talent they did, and do. Obviously your product has to be good but im sure they paid well.
