    A friend has been "housing" a Guzzi Le Mans mk 1 for his friend for a
    few years and is sick of it being in his garage. I am told that the
    owner has receipts for £6,000 for parts and restoration and that it has
    been occasionally started. The owner cannot ride it any longer due to a
    back injury. So what is your best guess as to the value of this beastie?
    All I have so far is the above, but if anyone is interested I'll try to
    get more information.

    Without more detailed info as to the quality of the aforementioned
    'restoration' and also the current mileage, spec and condition, I'd say
    anywhere from £2500-3500.

    That's the kind of figure I told my mate last time I saw him, but his
    friend has "ideas". I'll see if any pictures are available.

    Tim was seen penning the following ode to ... whatever:
    Uh Oh, that doesn't sound too good - he probably remembers the bike
    through serious rose-tinted glasses and conveniently forgot that it's
    now a solid block of corrosion...

    Probably all over the crank at the rear main bearing seal, (so when started
    after a nice long 'rest', it cuts the bloody seal to ribbons). You *do* need
    to use Guzzis regularly.

    Way OTT for a garage rescue. A good, fettled runner perhaps but for a
    forgotten example probably more like £1500. Might be worth more broken.

    Actually I think it's the owner's back that is corroded, which is why it
    hasn't been used.
