Selling my Rapide??

Some time ago I bought a non matching Rapide, 1953 engine and what I believe is an earlier UFM. The bike have been standing for quite some years but it's fairly original with a good patina. It was build up from parts in 1965 and taken off the road in 1967, or at least this is what I can read from the registration papers. I'm not sure that I'm up to the job to get this great bike to it's former glory and will consider a new home for it, where will be the best place to sell a bike like this? VOC or Ebay..

e-bay is not a great place to sell classic bikes. Fees are just the start of it. First of all advertise it in MPH (once you have decided on your price). If that doesn't work then consider e-bay.

Er, same size font as the original poster. I just did a cut and paste from the forum rules.

I would consider selling here if there is someone out there willing to buy..

BEST idea...send it to me here in OZ and I will look after it until it eventually sells, won't even charge you any commission (unless of course you would like to chip in for running costs, registration etc) I promise to take it all over Australia for maximum exposure so that I can be sure of getting the best price for you.
If that doesn't work then simply fly me and the bike back to the UK, put a For Sale sign on it and I will begrudgingly drag the pair of us around UK and Europe in the vain hope of ridding you of this burden that must, by now, be weighing heavily upon your weary shoulders, if you find this magnanimous gesture of mine sounds too much like charity then, fear not good friend, as I will therefore also allow you to pay me a daily stipend towards relaxation and accommodation (speeding fines, parking fines, Guinness and Bail)

Yours, forever altruistic, Kevin :rolleyes:
