Enjoyinvest latest joke."Really too nice to put on a bike".
What other uses could you have for it? Door stop?
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 ownershipIf you can explain, I can try and do it.
A thread solely for Ebay items? Or just enjoyinvest and Kurtis?
"TOTALLY COMPLETE READY TO FIT TO YOUR BIKE" .................... how can he be so sure? Anyone would think he'd just taken them off a perfectly good bike.Another bargain from Kurtis;
Knowing "Enjoyinvest" personally, I doubt if he dismantles Vincents for spares. On the other hand, looking at the photos of the items offered by Kurtis on eBay would suggest that he may well be breaking complete (and potentially roadworthy) machines.I am a little torn by this particular concept, I agree totally with Shanghai but...
1. I hate the thought of someone stripping down a perfectly good Vin for parts and
2. It is quite possible that these parts may bring more than one Vincent back on the road again.
Some are saying that the parts are going to rich collectors who return a bike to its former glory and then leave it in a museum, big assumptions!!
I am sure that if I had a near complete bike that required a part made of Unobtanium that could only be machined by the Great Grandfather of a Buddhist Monk wearing a Kaftan and living in Shropshire then I might just sell one of my children for that particular component.
Yup, sold a complete Comet engine and gearbox for £5,000. It was still part of a complete bike when advertised."TOTALLY COMPLETE READY TO FIT TO YOUR BIKE" .................... how can he be so sure? Anyone would think he'd just taken them off a perfectly good bike.
The silly thing is, if you forget it's another Vin broken for profit, the price is about right - the water excluders are £50 and the PD32 ain't cheap if you can find one, before you get into the cost of painted rims etc...
I'm just curious about one thing, I don't remember seeing Kurtis advertise an engine (maybe that's me).
Redbloke - if that Buddist Monk is still wearing his Kaftan he'll need a good brazer soon - it's starting to get chilly round the nether regions over in Shropshire.
