I thought this bike would sell at $12,500. Now re-listed for $9500?

(Apparently "new" Britbike won't allow an eBay copied/pasted link?)

Could be it's worth somewhere between $9500 and $12500?

On the other hand, the same could be said of a Ferrari 250 GTO competition car. They don't come with titles, you can't use them on the road ... and yet you'd need to bring about $50 million to the auction to get one for your living room .... !!

No title?
How about a MSO?
It was originally considered a race bike.

The numbers don't need to match brigade would still buy it but this might need to be investigated.

This bike appears to have a replacement frame which is stamped with the correct VIN number.

Agreed, the frame thing may be the issue. For instance, if it is a 67 frame with 66 stamp, visibly incorrect (foolish, but possible I suppose). Somehow it has been called out, wonder what the details are?
This bike, regardless of the few restoration errors, should bring more than asking it seems.

I didn't mean it wouldn't bring that kind of money. I guess I look at bikes as things to be used. I have art on the walls of my house so I guess it's each to their own.

Its pretty simple...numbers don't match, restamped frame = %50 of the value. Same with a corvette, 1967 big block original engine $150000 non orig motor $75000

I don't buy the whole "race bikes don't have titles" thing- they might not have been registered for street use at original sale, but legal ownership should require a title. Only seems to come up when there is no title, or questionable numbers. I also question a seller who doesn't research and/or replace incorrect parts- or even point them out- yet asks top dollar. It's like those eBay vendors who don't know what it is but know it's in good shape (and what it's worth).

Back in the day I can remember new dirt bikes being sold without titles. But it probably depends on the state.

You are right - In California, my new 1965 TR6C came with a title - it was not equipped with lighting, mufflers, etc. No plates or or registration were issued as it was strictly an off road machine. The $6. charge for Title by the state was levied at the time of sale

All of the "dirt bikes" or "race bikes' that I have bought new in this state, including the '65, came with a title

Here in NC we still don't title dirt bikes and if you buy any kind of non-road worthy bike you can buy it with just a bill of sale.

Not difficult to get a title in fact quite easy.

Hint: just be prepared to pay tax of 6% of the NADA guides fair value price.*
