You just got to see this to believe how much the guy is asking for this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1811443987...84.m1423.l2649

Have a look at his other items as well. I had to read it a couple of times to make sure I wasn't seeing things or reading a typo. Is he smoking something he should be selling or what?

When you think about it, maybe this is the future, running costs of a motorbike are increasing at a great rate..road tax is 78 a year and increasing, insurance costs never go down, MOT and spare costs are never low and a new bike can easily cost close to 20k..Just look at the Gen.2 Vmax and the Indians..The bike test in Britain is becoming too difficult for anyone to pass at first go, people who ride bikes over 125cc's are going to become an endangered species..This will mean that because of low sales the price of producing a large cc bike will increase and the retail price will make it a rich mans toy..

Of course all of the above could turn out to be true or fantasy but the true value of something has always been what someone will pay for it, so maybe we are undervaluing our bikes..why should an oil painting be worth so much more than a well made one off motorcycle, and why should a rare antique be worth more than a rare motorbike.

Why is a Vincent worth so much..

I have a 1986 Honda shadow VT700 for sale..14,000 anyone..Just needs a bit of tidying up..

John.

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.
