Some nice Brit bikes, but they've been run up pretty high already. AND there's a 10% premium on top.

Those must be the few bikes he didn't strip to list the parts at exorbitant prices on EBAY.

Any parts he markets on EBAY are priced five times what the same items are listed by anyone else.
How he sells anything at his prices is a mystery to me.

I agree, most of his stuff collects more dust than cash.

Wow, the sold dollar amount for the classic Japanese bikes is impressive! It really is telling, how sought-after many of the models have become. Also, the OIF Triumph models did exceptionally well!!

And you never know where they end up. Some of these could have been repatriated back to their country of origin.
I sold a bike to fellow on the west coast who acted as a broker for Asian buyers; so it wound up getting shipped overseas.
That happened some years back when the GBP was so strong against the USD, and Brit bikes were being scarfed up.
Hitchcock's Motorcycles who specialize in Royal Enfields, came over at least once a year and took back home shipping containers full of Enfield bikes and parts.
