Nvr scoff at a guy's price point. I used to be offered Matchless and BSA Brit singles for Rs 3,500/-, and they didn't seem worth their Fe weight then. An old-timer recently told me he got Rs 35,000 for his heap of rust that just about ran, had more oil out of the engine than in it, and was fr all intents a petrolhead's worst nightmare.
If that's not impressive, consider this: Bawa acquaintance who sold his BSA Gold Star for the Princely sum of Rs 35K 25 years ago, was offered it back by the same buyer for Rs 7 lakhs!!

not scoffing netchef... those who know me would know I'd would never do that.
Regarding prices, well the examples you have given are very different from what we are talking about. As they say Time-Time ki baat hai... its not the time for an Anglia to go for that price today, and all this is totally IMHO. Well less than 25 years ago Mehmood's Stingray was bought by a collector for now what is considered as peanuts but was well worth its price then. The price of gold was way way less than today and we all know what the property rates were.
In 1983 I bought a plot of land for 1.50 crores which is now worth a whopping price so we cant compare prices before 25 ears. Im sure 25 years from now the price we pay today for anything will be considered peanuts.
By the way, Today you will not get a Gold Star for 7 lakhs....thats appreciation in what.....??!! 6 months??!!

Huh? Jale pe namak?

I had bought a BSA (dont know model etc.) but it was a 350 cc petrol engine for 19k, and then after spending the same amount on it, sold it in 6 months for 15k. :(
