Look back to 1990. The biggest downer in cars was the 4.2 E Type. They made thousands of them!! Unless you have a Series 1 flat floor or something with genuine history it is a fragile investment. I know someone who has bought and sold a few with a canny mind and his next one will cost him nothing.

Here's a new one on me - Part K16a, a box with grease to recharge your K16 grease gun.


I had a look at my parts book, plate MO33. There is no K16a. I bet this one does not have original Vincent-supplied grease in it....
If you look at his other stuff, He has the same tins with BSA Triumph etc, Nice touch, If cheap enough !.
Cheers Bill.

Wow, asking $US199 for a nos 40 year old tyre. the direct equivalent of an Avon SM.

I've got a pair of v low mileage Dunlop TT100, 3.60 and 4.10 x 19", 1983 vintage. Any offers over $200? Shipping extra, of course.

He's from Wisconsin and he has some nasty negative feedback....

To be fair Peter, if you have feedback of 8,000 + you would expect 10 or so negatives due to expectation of buying something fantastic for a penny. Even I have had that; yes, I know. Some people still expect to receive something for nothing and often they do not read the entire advert. I once sold a handful of "Ewarts Style Taps" and the guy complained they were not all Ewarts brand.

If anyone feels like killing themselves here are some NOS tyres. He says they've been on the shelf for 40 years like it's a good thing!! I suppose they're okay for a show pony but somebody might actually buy them to ride on.

It's probably just an honest oversight: his username is "sixharleys" so he wouldn't be acquainted with the problems of acceleration, braking or leaning from the vertical plane.

Just seen a rather nice Vincent dual seat for sale on eBay, apparently the seat base has been French Polished, I have never won a concours competition, although I did once win "the bike most people would like to ride home" perversely that was at a small, local, Velocette meeting. I am just starting to wonder if this is the reason why, you cannot see that much wood, what with the seat covering, bracketry and tool tray etc. but I suppose it could just sway the judges.

You are right, in this rarefied atmosphere of unreality, soon to disappear of course, even the 'Emperors New Clothes'... start to look good to some.
