I’m not in the market got another bike but I was sent this link to the auction and I thought you might find it interesting.
Even got a Nearly Ready 750

Ive been looking through these wonderful bikes, I haven’t a clue how much most of them are worth but there’s a lot of money there.

I do like the Brough Superiors, and the old Norton’s and early BMWs

No reserves either! Though I doubt the ‘investor’ types will allow anything to slip through their inflationary net!

Hopefully the investor types will be enthusiasts too, I know that hedge fund managers were buying up old Aston’s and Ferraris a while back, but are they really big into bikes? At least the seller appears to have been an enthusiast, he had his own restoration team, so those that have been restored will be in top condition

Wow there certainly is some very nice bikes to be had there, (if only I had the money)

For the pure enjoyment to stand and look at, and for occasional ridouts I would be willing to give a couple a grand for
LOT F284 -- 1958 500cc BSA GOLDSTAR, --------- Pity its not one of the last 1963 era, (would have given another grand or so for one of them,

And for weekend offroad fun, would be happy to give another couple of a grand for
LOT F196 -- 1966 500cc (Triumph) RICKMAN MATISSE SCRAMBLER

IF ONLY -----

The NSR 400 went for $27000 or so crazy money , little GB TT s going for $7500 , the only bargains seemed to be
the 160 cc honda trail bikes everything else was super strong.
I always told SWMBO that classic bikes were a good investment ,she never believed me :)

Wow, the NR went for $181,000, which must be the highest price ever for an NR. Was it 0-mile? It was, at least, a European full-power version, rather than the 77PS ones sold in Japan, but still, that is a very high price. (I still regret missing out on a German-spec one for €40k 15 years ago...just couldn't justify it financially then--nor now!)

Ciao,
