I think we need a permanent entry point in Public Access for comments on e-bay items.
a little knowledge is a dangerous thing we could help a lot of first timers

£1100+ ??????- shillbidding methinks..........Surprising what you can do to the "value" of something if you screw it to a block of wood.Perhaps its Genuine Vincent Wood?

I am afraid, very afraid, that investors like enoyinvest! He supplies top grade, original Vincent items, there can be no doubt about that. Those who have bought bikes with the sole intention of "buying" awards at top flight concours events will always pay for such items. It is loose change for them and when their bikes have all these awards the value of said bikes will be well beyond the average machine. People like enjoyinvest and Herb Harris look after this market well. Kurtis just breaks bikes. I have built a near concours 8" headlight with all original Miller equipment over the last few years. It has cost me (maybe) $$300 and half of that was to re-silver the reflector. I guess at the price of the "little" headlight it must be "worth" at least $2000 to someone but it is going on my bike. Much as we may like to "hate" these dealers, they can only survive when people pay these prices. It is also interesting to note that while the prices of standard bikes has plateaued and even fallen, the parts have risen in price, this makes breaking them even more lucrative. I have become quite sanguine about this because I am a curmudgeon:) Time to stop before my bile boils over.... PS. The person who passes these postings to enyoyinvest will note I have not denigrated (nor praised) him. Please tell him not to ring me again as I admit I am a sad, twisted excuse of a human being.....:rolleyes:

If you can explain, I can try and do it.
A thread solely for Ebay items? Or just enjoyinvest and Kurtis?

its a fuction of the web master I just think a regular fixed theme of comments on ebay offerings when they occur would be of interest and guidance to those joining Vincent ownership

So what does ex-shop stock mean????? Parts are bought from the Spares Co or some other source? That would mean they ARE reproductions, and therefore not as described.

Just askin'

I have said it before but I will say it again.

Have a look at the starting price.
Its 10GBP !
Therefore it is the market that determines the sell price not enjoyinvest.

Give the guy a break. All he is guilty of (if guilty is the correct word) is being a very good marketer.
