What is going price for Element V1 frames.

Ive found a bunch raw. If its worth my while I might get them. Whats the going price of these now? What would they sell for if I had them anodized?



I dont have these yet and wont tell where they are located.

Well you need the VASAs for them to start with.I've heard some Cocker frame ones are compatible but can't confirm this
Appears they'd need alot of sanding and polishing before they could be annoed
Going price for aftermarket frames are between $30-80,the Elements rarely come up so they'd be on the high end finished&annoed.
Raw I'd guess $50 max with a VASA but they probably wouldn't sell quickly as anno would be pricey

Ok so they really are just scrap metal. By the time Vasa's are made there wouldn't be any profit left.

I'd hate to call them scrap metal considering the time it takes to mill one
Pretty much unless you can find a source for the VASAs
They're really nice frames,I was lucky to get a nice gloss black one with 15 VASA and trigger over a year ago for $50 shipped
Theyd be great candidates for a Relay mods

You can sell them as-is. They're pretty rare so collectors would snap them up.

If you have to make VASAs make them forward ones with a high thumb line and angled back 15

Honestly, if you were willing to do $50 for a pair of them as they sit currently, I'd have money PP'd to you today. I love the element frames and what you have there could be a great item to sell to tinkerers like me, even raw without a vasa.

I wonder if they could be modded to take Shocker VASA's?

And if they do take Cocker VASA's those are still floating around and available. I wonder if it'd take 2k or 2k5 versions or if there's even really a difference?

Would you happen to have any 45 frame ones, or are they all 90's?

I abandoned plans to get the frames. For what people would pay there is absolutly no profit in buying, finishing ,selling the frames. Especially if I had to make the va's. That would actually make it so I would need to sell the frames for around $165 if I remember the numbers. (Fyi: $50 wouldnt even cover the va cost).

As they sit I would need $75 a frame and I wont do that without 10 frames having a deposit placed on them.

So both prices appear to be out of the price range people expect to pay.

As far as I know they are still collecting dust in a garage along with other cool stuff.

No interest selling them as is? I can make anything I would need for them but they are such cool frames. I would offer $100 for 2.

Agreed I'm still in for buying 2 as is for $100. I'm wanting to build an ion from nothing but don't want to make the frame if I don't have to.

Well hey, look what Google found. Please don't attempt to sell my work. I put a lot into this, including a 5 year relationship that was destroyed over the financial stress the original battle with FBM became. There were only ever 73 finished frames, and considering the original demand, so it would mean a lot to me to be able to release them back into circulation correctly.

I'm happy to pay form them and produce new ASAs and triggers because I think those were the screwups that had incorrect trigger pin placement for the stock trigger. Sending a PM with my contact info so I hope we can work something out.
