Loved my 350 SS from high school. Quick and fun, but I've gotta agree with Barefoot - at $3k it will be there awhile.

On that one, yes.

But the market is shifting. Well restored and strong running sprints are going up in value. $2500 for a good example isn't nuts and I've seen three trade at shows over the past 18 months for $2500-3000.

Granted, in all three cases the buyers were certainly "not from around here" and I suspect the bikes were exported.

Americans just don't seem to value the hoglets at all. Me, I love mine and it's the only bike I catch my wife sitting on and pretending to ride.
