Classic Bike Guide  |  337 May 2019  


‘How much? It’s not worth that.’

A commonly heard phrase when looking at a bike for sale. Especially a classic, or old, bike where there is no industry wide guide book. It could be aimed at a rose-tinted owner, a simple chancer, or dealer.

But it could be more meaningful than just someone wanting to extract as much money from the deal. It may be a true representation of the work, effort and trouble that has gone into that bike. To be honest, it pees me off. You
get know-it-alls in all forms of life, but how can you say a 1973 model is worth ‘X’; the same as an identical bike.

They are, after all, 45 years old and have probably led totally different lives. So let’s look deeper.
Packed full of interesting snippets, historical facts, in depth articles, technical features and hands on restorations, Classic Bike Guide aims to educate those who are new to the old bike scene, without patronising those with experience of such matters.
