Re: Clean Low Mile '91 1100 on eBay
It's always interesting to see what the really clean, original examples command...although the reserve wasn't met, as bids reached $8900US, there was definitely strong interest in it.
Was the market ready for 10 grand, or was it the wrong time of year etc? That particular bike wasn't 100% perfect, but I think we can all agree that it was pretty damn nice.
They are only original once, you can restore them over and over.
If you've ever restored a bike, a car or a toaster, you soon realize that you can easily spend double what it's worth, trying to bring them up to show room level.
That's why it always pays to buy the nicest example that you can find.
Over time, those clean, original bikes become unicorns and values continue to go up, as long as there is still interest in them.
OG, start a thread and post up some pictures of your bikes. You have some interesting bikes and projects!
