1968 front brake…..probably whole front end. 314 miles in this case probably means that’s when the cable broke.
Ob…….you’re trying brother and we love ya for it.
Prices are soft right now IMO. My guess is they will be for some time. $3500 will get you a lot of bike today.
I had my A10 at MidOhio, and just to have a go, set it out with a sign that said "Make Offer". It's not beautiful, but it IS complete and solid, and anything at MidOhio stays dusty, but I'd ride it across the country - nothing wrong with it.
It was very strange - 5,000 people walked past it. About 80% of them never even glanced at it. Me, I could never help just having a look at an old Brit if it was sitting there even if I wasn't in a buying mood. (Probably says more about the current MidOhio crowd than it does me or my bike). The rest of the folks looked at it as they walked or rode by, and about 10 asked about it.
"How much do you want for it?" they said. "You're the buyer - it's only worth what you'll give for it. How much would that be?" sez I.
"But what are you trying to get for it?" they'd say. "Well, if you've got money, pull it out and let's see if it's enough. You might be surprised!" I'd counter.
Out of all those people, ONE guy made an offer. I think that people are so scared of being accused of "lowballing" the seller that they're afraid to say anything. He said "Well, I hate to make too low an offer ..."
I said "You see all these people here? You know what their offer is? ZERO, that's how much. So anything you offer will be a better offer than that!".
He did make an offer ($3200), and I said "Thanks, but that's just a tad low, I think. If this were an A65 or B50, I'd take it, but these are a little thinner on the ground ....". He thanked me and I thanked him and that was that for the day.
Have to figure out how to find the right audience, I guess.
