'Faffing' around the loft yesterday found me an almost complete sand scorcher front and rear end.

Looked up ebay and couldnt believe the prices for parts alone - got me a decent retro bikes worth!

yes, I saw one of them sold on ebay for good price last year, think it went over £100 and wasnt mint though, worth trying on ebay if you want some cash for your bikes, lol

I've loved these things since the 80s when I had my first Scorcher.

They've never been re-released (and probably never will be), but there's still plenty around if you're prepared to pay.

A complete front and rear (if you have the gearbox and motor covers) could fetch close to £100 on their own. I could certainly buy a Klein or Yo if I sold some of mine......but I'm not going to. :wink:

A mint built example could fetch over £500 and NIB pushing £2000. :wink:

well, I have the clear plastic 'A' parts which seem to fetch anything up to £36 on its own. I also have the roll cage, front bumper, suspenstion etc...

might be at least a decent set of suspension forks worth - or a holiday...
