Are you thinking of taking up a different hobby or starting over, then?
I know what you mean...but some of us lose sight that modern machinery blurs the picture....$1000-$1200 for a service not unusual at a dealer...hence $3000 for a well sorted bike seems low....but a bargain for us older riders.No hijack. It was me that took the thread in the direction of prices.
CXs appear to have no particular pricing structure as they've never become particularly desirable and prices in Oz tend to be all over the place on the basis that they are simply worth what someone is prepared to pay.
But this $7,500 is more than I would value the thingy or the Ozdeluxe at, both of which have significant use of NOS parts within the engines and elsewhere.
The white 500C currently in my shed will be sold once complete. My proposed value? $2,500 - $3,000.
