I recently spotted this bike on Ebay . . .

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380506717241&clk_rvr_id=409421263144

It is currently at over £2,000 and it is for restoration :shock:

It may be very rare, but where else does the value lie ? Is it one of the first of this type of bike ?

For this kind of money, I'd be expecting an immaculate and rare Hetchins/Ephgrave/Thanet etc.

Some non-original parts on there too. The brake levers are early GB and I doubt that it would have come with those bars either. However, the bags are original and probably rare in that condition- but even so :shock: :? :!:

Personally I would have kept that and sorted it out.
