Silverstone auction
« on: May 14, 2022, 05:04:20 PM »
Just come back from the MCN show where I spent some time at the auction. Notable highlights for me were a Z900 in very good nick guided at 15 to 18K that went for 8.5K. A couple of others went nearer to 13K which were also guided at around 14 to 18K. Most bikes were going for around 10 to 20% below the minimum estimate.
A 400 four rust bucket went for £5,500. Someone must have swallowed the blurb about its 900 miles, believed to be correct, and some spiel about its first owner being a James Bond Art director!
There was a stunning 550 four, pictured, but I missed the sale, i'll look it up later.

500 is really nice, shame the aftermarket seat doesn't line up with the tank though, it's so good it lets it down.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it
