Re: What's it worth??

thats very specialist stuff and if he wants to sell id advise him to contact bonhams or one of the big auction houses, the vincent alone sounds like 50k so feck knows what the rest will be worth. auction will attract the big buyers and get him the best price.

Re: Diesel bikes...

i happen to know of a diesel bike for sale at the moment, its been built a few years so has been on the road for a while and runs a ford 1.8 diesel engine. its only about 500 quid which is probably the value of the engine and box alone!

Re: My '73 Triumph 750 Tiger

my bmw r100hybrid had reverse cone meggas on it, the mot man described the sound as 'like a spitfire taking off' fab exhausts, though i think the word 'silencer' is a misleading description!

Re: New project for me

rare stuff is only rare because there arent many left. if every original survived into the modern era, they wouldnt be seen as rare. chop up whatever you like.
