As a VJMC member and I would say proper enthusiast I have seen them go for those prices.
Each to their own, personally what I have is mine because I like it, I will probably never see any gain from them as I don't sell what I collect as a general rule, but I don't spend silly money to start with.

£545 in 1975 is worth £4397.87 today, is that what an S3 is worth?
£725 in 1975 is worth £5850.37 today, is that what an H1 is worth?
£849 in 1975 is worth £6850.99 today, is that what an H2 is worth?
These figures are based just on inflation over the last 45 years so if these prices are correct are they worth any more or less than they were new?
I know that in 1980 a new learner legal Honda CB 250n cost £865 (£6980.1) and a learner legal naked Honda now costs £3989 and performance is probably that much different  :whistling:

Some investments are better than others.
The only 1400 that will be worth big money are the stock one's :whistling:

Initially, yes. When they`re gone, the stock `cosmetically challenged` ones will be next......so keep hold of all your stock replaced parts everyone, Bazookas `n all. They`ll be worth really good money :onya:.

The amount of riding is not the point. :)
