    I bought them new in 1970 for under a thousand dollars in the US. I just sold a really clean 1970 Bonneville to a gentleman in Pittsburgh PA, USA who rode one similar when he was in England as a young man and he happily paid me $10,000.00 for it. It was almost show quality and I'm getting up there and it broke my heart, but it has a nice home in a heated garage still. They bring a wide range here in the US, but near perfect $10,000.00 is a starting price and up from there. You scored big time.
