I've just seen on a F-B group I'm on a tidy running Venom in the unusual red and black colour scheme on sale at £5750. No idea how that relates to Oz dollars but I'll bet it's less than 10k's worth.

Imported from the UK. !
That alone would have cost him an arm and a leg.
The "1938" Norton there for $25k would take some beating. ?

The days of pirates about may not be be over....

You should check out the results achieved for old British bangers in the latest Shannons sale that finished a week ago.
Lot 108, 1950 Matchless G80, $7,200. Lot 109, 1953 Matchless G9 500cc twin, $5,100.  Lot 115, 1952 Triumph Thunderbird,$14,500. Lot 116, 1953 Ariel Square Four$17,000. Lot 121 Triumph X-75 Hurricane, $40,500.

The other eight Brit bikes didn’t sell

Those are actual sale prices, not eBay dreamer stuff. $16,000 for a 350 Ajay! Tell’im ‘e’s dreamin’.
