What people are asking for some bikes nowadays is a joke. I had an argument with some muppet on a well known socialising site who couldn't understand why no one would pay 750 for a 30 year old American import GpZ550. I showed him a bandit 600 on that well known auction site which was going for 800. His reply was something along the lines of "yes, but bandits are ten a penny. Mine is a rare bike". After I'd informed him that bandits were also faster, more reliable and parts were easier to get which make them ideal work horses and his was worth around 400 tops, he said it was worth what he was asking and he wasn't going to take any less. I last saw it on said auction site with an opening price of 600 and no watchers or bids.
