    An old 350 would probably be happier at 80kph than 100 now?
    A 500 is not much faster than a 350 but can be geared up a bit so its happier at 55mph.

    I did a quick search and 50s red hunters gather about $16kNZ in UK.

    I think what he has here is a collection of parts a restorer might be keen on. For the right price. And this cant be it.

    Maybe this was what he was left with after he restored the good one.
    A pre war Red Hunter might go $16K but they are less popular than other marques despite being arguably 'better' (or is that slightly less worse)

    A collection of parts with the weird harold plungeresque rear suspension is arguably worth more than a swing arm one particularly with the twin port head. However that bike needs vast amounts spending on it and truck loads of parts before its viable. You could sink another $15k into that before it was worth say - oh - $8k....
