As much as I hate to admit it, these hard economic times has finally gotten to the point of putting a pinch on me. I recently lost my job of 20 years and am back in school trying to hone my skills and make myself more marketable. In the mean time the bills are piling up and the income from the shop just is not keeping up.
That is why I have decided to part with my 1966 T100SC. Now I know there is a for sale section here and am not trying to peddle my wares in this section but rather get a little help on coming up with a fair price in which to ask. Now I know in order to do this I will need to provide some info, so here it goes.
This is a 1966 T100SC model as decipherd by the serial # on the engine block. The frame is not stamped,appears to have never been stamped and is in what appears to be original paint. There has been no grinding or cutting of the frame in any part. The tank is there and complete. Has a few small dents but is in great shape inside. The seat is a reproduction and is in great shape.The motor retains the original ET ignition with the addition of newer ET style coils.The forks have NOS tubes but need the correct seal holders as I believe the ones on it are from a 250 Triumph. The motor kicks over smoothly with compression and I had it running when I first bought the bike. There are a couple chipped fins on the head but I have a replacement head in excellent shape that has the same 1966 date code. The oil tank is in great shape with no damage and original paint. Also has the complete siamese exhaust sytem in great shape with do dents,dings or rust. The wheels are probably the worst aspect of the bike as the rims have thier share of rust that I just do not think can be cleaned up to be presentable. It has the correct 1" handlebars. Also has the correct monoblock carb with the bent rod style choke. The kickstand is original and in good undamaged condition. Now on to the parts that are not on the bike but I have. Reproduction aluminum front fender,original aluminum rear fender in great shape,all the fender brackets and parts in new black gloss powdercoat. NOS ET Lucas
wiring harness (cost me a small fortune),NOS splash pan and brackets,Lucas
ET horn,NOS complete headlight assembly,NOS complete taillight assembly but lense is not Lucas
lense on another bike).NOS grabrail,very nice chaingaird with no damage,original Lucas
stop lamp switch, Lucas
kill switch, Fork gaiters and probably a bit more stuff I cannot remember at this time. As I said,the engine is in good cosmetic shape with no cracks or chain damage and the frame is original and unmolested. Also NOS seat hinges.
If anyone cares to offer me an opinion as to not so much the value but a realistic asking price for this bike. I am thinking that $1800 - $2000 would be resonable but am always interested in what other of a like might think.
