The value you put on it, 24 thousand pounds, is far in excess of its value here,so there is no chance of a sale.

Even at 2 thousand four hundred it would still be regarded as expensive.

No one in UK is interested in jap bikes of that era, hard but true.

The British old bike enthusiasts are notoriously as tight as a duck's drum.
I was at Netley Marsh last Friday, and heard that immortal exchange-

"How much is this mate?"
" I dunno...give me a quid"
"Nah, far too much..make it 50p and I'll take it".

So there's this way of thinking amongst all the normal old riders, and those who spring £50K for a Vin or whatever, and your bike falls smack in the middle.Too dear for some, no marketable quality for others. Have you tried the Jap home market?

and tighter, some makes have owners even tighter than that, V******* and V *******    owners I always found worst.

back in the days when I sold a lot at jumbles, it was always the V******* parts that got nicked.

By gawd I have some tales of tight arses from my trade  days  you'd find hard to credit.

I know a bloke who is so tight that I think his has been welded shut.

Do you honestly think there's the remotest possibility that anyone on this site will be interested in these bikes? I know the site could do with more posts, but it's not an advertising forum; particularly for this perceived exotica.
Getting grumpy.

sold for £13,800 inc buyers premium, hammer price was 12k, so take home will be a lot less than 12k.

and the other one allegedly valued at over 100k?   20k hammer price.

oh well.

On the other hand there were some nice Sunbeams .
