Indeed! Best other ones that didn't get away were the KH250's and 400s I could buy in pieces and mostly complete but with a V5 for £50- £80.Circa 1995 / 1996.

Interestingly, the suction turned up a KH 250 that had been stored for a while but needed sorting out. It made £3500. Also a very nice 13000 mile KH400 that made over £7000.

So this is the bike sold for a net @£1800 at Pugh auctions, now up at £2250 on eBay.

That’s business I guess.

Yes, typical. I had my eye on a Scott in an auction a couple of years ago. Hammer price: around £5,000. It appeared a few weeks later on a dealer's website at £10,000 looking exactly the same.

It's funny, my wife fulminates at the auction commission and calls it barefaced robbery, but doesn't seem to object to profiteering by dealers. Probably because usually yo don't know what they paid.

I agree with your wife Ian.

The local bric-a-brac house clearance sale up here now charges 24% if you bid in the saleroom or leave an absentee bid online! :o
Quote
Fees apply to the hammer price:

Room and Absentee Bids:
24% inc VAT*

Online and Autobid:
27.6% inc VAT*
*These fees include buyers premiums and internet surcharges.

This is on top of the Commission being taken from the vendor, as set out below that doesn't include VAT!  :o
Quote
Commission Rates – Per Lot –     Items up to £1000.00 – 20%

                                                      Lots over £1000.00, 20% of first £1000.00 then 10% thereafter

                                                      Minimum Charge per lot – £2.50

                                                  ALL CHARGES SUBJECT TO VAT

Needless to say the "recreational delights" of attending a good household clearance auction are now greatly diminished and often inhabited by the mercenary like of a certain D. Pritchard and his rag trade entourage! :-X

Like the rug and hope that you have been able to get out on the 250, if nothing else.

My regards, Bill
