Just a "titch" on the high side for the Rapide, and quite a lot for the Comet...in my humble opinion...

For those prices I would expect a 100 point concours bike and these are not. Britax headlight lens on Comet, wrong fuel taps on Comet etc etc. The errant oil line ferrule on the Rapide shows it has not been used and the seller was too lazy/ignorant to fix it for the photos. Collector bikes that will need a thorough going over before even starting them. Tell him he's dreaming!

Ain't this great? Keep raising those asking prices folks. Just makes me look reasonable.
