Ooo... I was very tempted when I looked at the photo, it’s exactly the same colour and year as the one I bought new waaaaaay back in 1980.  Brought back some cracking memories just looking at the photos of it....Oh them were’t daze 😉👍.
Cheers, Michael

The Pugh auctions always have some interesting stuff and well worth keeping an eye open.

I took a look at the Cb250rs today.
6 owners from new and 27k on the clock.
It looked nice and genuine with original paintwork (I believe),
The engine had been cleaned up and was nicely presented.
Wheels looked original and in good order.
The main issue was very noticeable play in the rear sprocket, suggesting a possible Cush bush problem.
It will be auctioned on Saturday and it will be interesting to see the hammer price

Of course Michael.
If there’s interest I am guessing something like £1800 hammer price, but, of course, I could be well off target. It’s a very nice bike.

Wear on the rear sprocket / cush drive bushes is very common on these models. You can get the bushes on the after market but they are not cheap. The RSD models have the more conventional rubber types. Most of you already know it's in the nature of the single cylinder power pulses which exacerbate the wear. £1800 would I guess be about right IMHO.

Prices seem to be on the rise-now they are getting over 40. (tax and MOT exempt).

So the Honda made £1600 hammer price…….with £195 fees to add to that.
Auctioneer was surprised it went for that price but it seems there were only 2 bidding for it.
Auctioneer start price was £2000, but first bid was £1000

Well if I was selling I'd be happy enough with that price.............not sure about buying though. Paid about £30 (yes thirty) for my first RS which was more or less complete and a runner requiring only a pair of grab rails and little work IIRC and NOT that long ago!

£30 quid😲😲.....bargain of the century that one Martin. Bet you wish (I know I do🤦???) that you could still buy one for that kind of money now.

Yes Michael I certainly do! Sometimes you can be very lucky! IIRC it was advertised in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics (not Ebay of course) with no price. I phoned the seller straightaway and talked to him at length and at no time did he mention a price. It was high miles but ran fine .In the end I asked him how much he wanted and he said £30 or it could have been £35-no more. Needless to say I was round there like a shot. I had to pay someone I know his petrol to run me over to Rugby in his tranny which is about 50 miles but yes-a result. This was admittedly when they were just one of many big selling UJM's -just like the Superdream and many others. I did once turn down a ratty CB750 K2 for a few hundred pounds-look at the price of them now!
