    What’s this bike?:confused:
    And more importantly what would I be expected to spend to get my hands on it :confused: 69CC6943-6C5C-4324-88A6-40AEAC037235.jpeg

    Cheers @Callumity
    Them prices are scaring me off :confused:
    The ones I looked at looked like they’ve already been restored :)
    Any idea what I would have to pay for it unrestored :confused:
    I would love a project like this but have never dabbled in this area before and would hate to make too big of a mistake :(

    Hi Dilli I have a mate who is into restoration projects and from his experience I don't think he has made any money on any of his recovered bikes. In fact most of them he has lost money on. If you want the project to keep the bike I guess it is money well spent, if not you are likely to have your hand in your pocket an aweful lot.

    Hi @Wessa
    It’s not about making money :)
    But I’ve never done a restoration before :confused:
    I’ve done up a few bikes over the years but not a proper restoration and it’s something I would like to do :)
    My worry is paying way over the odds for something in the first place :(
    I have a friend who sent me the picture above and knows where the bike can be found :)
    Before I ask how much they want for it I would like to know what it is :confused:
    And more importantly what sort of price would be reasonable for a bike in this unrestored condition :confused:

    Understood mate, just wanted to share my mates experience with you. As I say if you are going to keep the bike, it is likely money well spent.

    Restorations can make you money if you buy the right bike at the right price and you have a good skill base and the correct tools.
    You need to do a lot of research about the bike/model you intend to restore before purchasing.

    Would it be a nut and bolt restoration dilli? If so you should do well, that nudger would rival old Gustave Eiffel’s creation, 18 million in that one. :kissing_heart:

    Agreed Dave, the key is the price on the bike...

    Not necessarily it’s knowing the market, what are people wanting to buy and at what price for the type of Resto your planning on doing. Full renovation or a quick polish and minimum amount of work done.
    Some bikes will be worth a full restoration, others not.

    Is the bike your buying complete and original even if it is tatty/rusty, these things can be overcome if you know how.
    The availability of NOS hard to find parts can play a part in your decision making.

    That’s why you need to research the bike/model.

    Great little bikes if you are after one, expect to pay around 3 for a project if you can find one as there are far to many people buying bikes as investments these days :-( I would rather buy a project as i then know what's been done as i see to many of these so called restored bikes that are just polished turds sadly.

    For that bike I wouldn't pay any more than 1 maybe 1 1/2 if it runs.
    Regards

    It looks like a 3ta. Possibly 5ta.
