Genuine 09 Pinarello Prince frame, size 53 (54.5cm top tube). Asking $1800. Have had this frame sitting in my shed for well over 12mths waiting to be built, however my focus has turned to something else so this frame needs someone to build it and ride it (or I can build it for you). Essentially it is a medium and nearly identical to that of a 54cm Cervelo, Cannondale, Scott etc (I've had all those bikes in a 54cm). It was lightly ridden by a female before I got it, so it is in immaculate condition. Plenty of fork steerer left to allow for correct sizing. If you shop well this could be built with top shelf kit for about $3.5k, even cheaper if you already had wheels. I have a near complete brand new Shimano 7900 groupset that I could offer the buyer (approx $1000) if they wanted to build it with this groupset (I won't offer it seperately just at the moment). Any questions, just ask. I have a 08 Prince as well so I know how well these things ride.....and they look unreal at the coffee shop!

hi deadrat, sorry I did not realise that you were waiting for me - until I saw your reply above.
I am still waiting for a quotation from my LBS - on how much they would charge me for stripping the components off my bike and assembling them to the 'new' frame. This would be crucial in my decision. Please bear with me. Having said that, please do not let me hold you off - if anyone wants to close the deal on your frame (or your 7900 components, by all means, go ahead).
I will let you know once I hear from my LBS - any idea how much is an 'acceptable' cost to strip-off and reassemble components?

My LBS quoted me $400. Another shop (my RBS) wanted $100.

90% of the stuff you can strip yourself.
Sometimes you'd be alarmed to find that bike shops throw out a random $$ just to see what the customer would pay.
FWIW - I paid $150 to strip one bike and transfer those components to another frame etc.
As Mark G said most of it you should be able to strip off yourself. I did this with my bike when I upgraded to Ultegra Di2 on my current bike. Shop then just fitted new groupset to stripped frame. In my opinion I wouldn't pay more than $200 for them to strip and re build a bike.
