In the private ads at the back there is a bike claimed to be all original, untouched and unmodified and in nice nick having been looked after and not done huge miles (don't they just all say that).
It's up for £9750 but you never know what might happen if someone was interested. It's January, there are bills to pay and you just never know what offer might just buy the bike for cash - nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Known bike, known history, all original paperwork, buff log book and V5 plus on the original registration and matching numbers and if it is in nice condition then.......sounds a good honest bike.
Beats combined £7K plus off ebay for a bitsa (before you do the restoration and pay through the nose for the few bits that are missing but expensive).
I know which route I'd go when the Premium Bond Gods shine on me!
I think that Comet will be for sale for a good while at that price. The 'Timing Chest' could be another horror story.
I think not.
Comet prices are going up as are twins, a pain in the backside if you ask me as to many bikes NEVER get used so they don't need parts
Go to a meet and ask someone how many miles they do in a year and they will say about 2k, most a lot less.
The last time prices cropped up every one said that they would never sell for that much and most did. An RFM has just sold for £900 ish on ebay so in my view that Comet engine is about right as is the Twin parts.
As for SS mudguards, no Pete, £250 is not a lot to you, me and a few others but most of the 12 emails that I have had today all say the same thing and that is "you must be joking, the bike only cost me £80 and as I never ride it why would I pay that".
