CaseLabs M8

Hello there OC3D family...long time no see( probably few years now). Well I'm very much into cycling now so have very limited time for tech this days.
I'm not really on top of prices ect so I have a question? how much can I ask for my M8 with all accessories(pedestal ect) I only recently found out that they closed down...
Hope that post like that is allowed on forum as I don't really know the rules now
Thanks

Depends, are you trying to sell the case on this thread, or are you just asking us how much we think it is worth?

From my understanding of his post, he's asking us for our opinion on what our thoughts are regarding it's value for him to sell it for.

If it hasnt been modded in any way such as cut or drilled. I would assume its value will hold quite strong.

M8 is a fantastic case, and with CL going under, I would think those who had always wanted one, would certainly still be seeking a good deal.

Just those two holes might drop its value quite alot :S

Its like a modded car body kit. No one likes to buy them and you get more value for your money when selling, if you replace all the mods with the original parts again.

They don't sell for much on forums. Mostly because they're massive and shipping is either out of the question or expensive. Also, most are built to order (custom) and thus you will have a hard time trying to shift it to some one who wants to spend that much on a rig, as they will likely get their own case.

I've seen a few on Ebay. I would look at see what the last few sold for to get an idea of what Ebay will pay.

There's one on ebay at the moment asking for 600 or best offer but reading the description it has never been used only built.
Possibly worth it but its finding someone who wants it

But as has been mentioned before they were basicly an open book you could spec how you want, which will limit who would like it

Thanks for your posts people
