To me, the 58 smacks of 'too shiny'. Nice bike but not 9500 nice, at least not to me...

Yes, the 58 has been relisted and I suspect it ill not make his reserve.

I note that the 57 has remained bidless until now but I doubt that it will sell either.

Is Ebay the best place to sell these bikes ?

Maybe and maybe not. But I believe any kind of auction will give you a better indication of what the broader market actually thinks. Can you get more at Meecums ? Well, maybe or maybe mot.

The best way to sell anything is to spread your net as far as possible. The more people who are aware that the item is for sale the more likely you are to find a buyer.

And while many of us here think out little trinkets are worth a King's Ransom - the market may tell us otherwise.
