8k for a lambretta isnt that out of the way, if it was a Tv or SX 200

thats an LD and worth maybe 2-2500

the classic market is stupid, seems to be a surge of people over the last few years with newly disposable income, kids moved on etc etc, and now want toys or to relive their yoof

also quite funny is the fact that even more desirable are unrestored bikes and scooters, the trend seems to be that its only original once, I was at a parts fair last weekend, saw 2 scooters same model, and 1 year apart.

1 was tidy but original, some rust and worn through paint etc, tuther was fully restored and shiney, all the interest and offers were for the original one, rusterations etc are making prices go silly.
