Interesting, the price of these has increased very quickly over the last year. Regularly seeing them up for £7500.
To be fair, it is very nice.

Mines not stock but it's better than that imo, and I've parted with that much moola to DS to! So can I get 10k? Only if there's a fool in the room!

Nice but 10,000 worth, not in my opinion If it is a UK certified K0 may be different but if it's a US K0 converted to UK spec(more likely) not worth that

Be interesting to see if it sells. If so, then there are fools in various rooms. Maybe folk have realised that the 500 is a bike worth having. So much lighter and agile than the 750 and nicer to ride in my humble opinion.

Tru dat


On the bike, petrol tank cap lock is wrong, it's got a key lock which wasn't fitted to the 500. It's nice but not worth that much.

Agree with all the above. Looks like aftermarket M/cyl and if it's trying to be a uk bike (with side grabrail) the wrong switchgear. It's been on before and low definition pictures are not going to sell it.
Also an early model here with more squared upper crankcases 123150768631 that is just marked sold. Love the cable guide by the horn. And Freddy also has "Best in the Country" for £7.5K. 322658913486 which has been on sale quite a while.
Or there is a slightly cheaper early model from DK (also early design) 312155477493.
