^ Norton, given your knowledge on rotary bikes, what would you expect the price of this bike to be (ish) as it is presently at £3500 with reserve not met?

Cheers,

Ian.

Hmm, i wonder how high the reserve is. I wouldnt have thought it would be very much higher than 3500, maybe 4500??, but sometimes people have high (possibly over-inflated) expectations of the value of things.

^ So, would these actually sell for £4500 normally then? Just wanted an idea of a realistic price ;-).

Yes, around £4000 to £4500 is about right.

Somebody put a last minute bid for £4100 in but it still said \'Reserve not met\'.
Doesnt look as though we will see it at Rotorstock III then !!

^ Perhaps the present owner could bring it to RSIII if it doesn\'t sell? I\'ll send a message to that effect via eBay\'s \'Ask seller a question\'. I\'ll post if any response.

I contacted the seller and mentioned MRC. He did reply and told me that he\'s a member of some other rotary clubs and owned various rotaries over the years. Unfortunately I managed to delete his reply by accident.... doh!
