    The starting bid was 300!

    I was after one for the GT 250A, and watched one go for well over 100,
    but found that there's a specialist near Stroud that will do a very
    close pattern one for well under.

    Still, for some people it's all-original bits or nothing.

    Regards,

    Simonm.

    for about £100. Blasted and re-sparayed base, new foam and re-cover. Looks
    as good as that one IMHO. I suppose it aint original and at that price it
    never will be!!

    R Strong waffled on in a quite bewildering manner to produce...
    £50 notes, hopefully

    I bought my kettle for £700, got the seat re-covered by a company in Brum
    Sounds like they did a decent job for that. I paid in the region of £500 in
    1980 for a 1976 kettle , must say it was one of the most enjoyable bikes
    I've owned.

    If I knew then what I know now I would have rushed out and filled my attic
    with kettle seats, incidentally it now stands at £650.

    Any more guesses?

    I'm seeing if I can flog the story of buying one and riding it back. If
    so, then I'll start working on locating a decent used one (prolly via a
    dealer).
