I would think that........

price is more like its potential when fully renovated.

Just had a look for one

Shows what I know - £20k for a pristine example. Good investment? Lot of work for little return.

£11K?

Maybe he's looking for a buyer that's had a little too much 'Christmas spirit' and makes a late night impulse buy LOL

Depends how you look at it

If a guy with a spares stock of Vincent parts is buying it,he's getting a bargain. If it's to be renovated by a buyer who has the skills and cash,he can't lose. If he's to pay someone else,he may be out of pocket by about £5-6000 looking at that,which in the not too distant future,will prove cost effective.

but they were oil leaking vibrating

rattling heaps of shoite when they were new, forty years rotting in a barn wont make it any better, these old boys who collect them must be gluttons for punisment.

old bikes

Rose tinted glasses have got a lot to answer to.... look at the prices people want for ALL the old shonkers.. Suzi GT750 kettle, Honda CB750 (especially the early ones) I've had both, in their time, and they weren't anything special then, never mind now.... As for British shit, had lots of them too, and people want the earth for them. Try getting a cheap bike for the winter commute, no such thing any more, they are are "classics, ready for restoration" Don't make me laugh, even an old Honda CD175, "classic" ...my arse... just want one for work... million pounds please  :mad:
