Well first models are expensive and 'sand cast' 4,s are rarer than Vincents (under 1000 made?) adjusted for inflation they were $9000 dollars new ($1459) so thats times 13 (a 1946 Vincent if you could find one) cost adjusted for inflation £9500 (£265) now who knows say £80000 for an original one of the first early twins? thats times 8 ish and guess what? worth around $135000!

It sound like this is unique. An over used term that literally means the only one! There may be two but the other one is not for sale. This bike was a game changer, a final blow to UK motorcycles.

we now have less than an hour to go, 135,500.00 and 98 bids. Do these guys have rocks in their heads? or is money (the great dollar) really worth so little.
