The classic 'bike market is healthy for exactly this reason, I'm told. If you get no interest on your money anyway, you can at least have some fun with it. (I can supply a highly desirable Matchless P11 to anyone wanting to invest in this particular field...)
Nice idea Dirge,
but I've done the classic bike bit and great though it was, second youth and all that, I think I'll stick to me bath chair and concertina, at my age.
Ah well, hope springs eternal...It is, of course, a bargain, if you need a late 60's desert racer. And surely everyone does?
