Thanks for tagging it.

Quick update.

Bonhams had one for sale last weekend. Stored since 1999 and 2,700km, from a private collection in Germany and it made 8050 with premium. However, the tax rules meant that it was deemed new enough in condition and mileage to attract 20% import tax, ignoring the fact that it was a 1994 bike that had been registered back then too....not very nice of them! So in reality, the cost to the winning bidder was closer to 10,000. I did bid on it but it went over my top price and I was too slow by the time I decided I had to put one final bid in (I was bidding over the internet, rather than in person, so the Auctioneer couldn't see the turmoil I was putting myself through!!).

I do have one other bike I am chasing and hope to come to a conclusion ASAP, so fingers are crossed.

Good luck Chris, it's always worth sticking to your guns and getting what you want even if it's a few quid more, rather than compromising!

Keep us updated!
