    Hard to tell off the rubbish pictures.
    Looks to have correct switchgear, Mk2 tank and the 38mm forks whilst an improvement on the spaggetti thin walled 35mm are also not
    original.
    Probably a Mk1 but not for a collector.
    750 GT in background would be nice to have.

    Mk1 Guzzi Lemans.

    Sold for 15K, thought it would have gone for more but wrong tank and mods that might not appeal to all.

    Ducati S2 Sold for 20K

    https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Lis...7411&archive=1

    Norton Commando Interstate Sold for 13K,

    BMW R60/5 with Sidecar Sold for $7500, ditch the sidecar, fit 750 top end, final drive and cam would be a good bike.

    Prices for classics.......

    I'm sure we've all been here, but sold a nice Darmah 8 years ago for 4.5k, bought that with some of the proceeds from my RC30 at 11.5k!
    SIGH.............

    I remember when MoggyMan ice creams were 4 cents each.
    Wish I'd kept one in the freezer now.

    Moggy Man....name sounded familiar and I Googled it...TT2's.

    Did you have a Walls Ball ice cream too....and those army tanks that came with chewing gum.

    Tip for all you wanna be classic bike owners, buy a 90's Ducati 900 Supersport while they are still affordable, even the 600's are a fun bike to ride.

    Norton price looks about spot on. They have been rising for a decade now. I should have purchased that running one that came with a second full bike but engine in pieces a few decades ago. Can't recall the price - $5k springs to mind ....

    Slightly scuffed up BMW.
    Sold for $3500.00
    No doubt will rise Phoenix like with the application of exhaust tape, brown seat and no guards soon for 10K
