PWC 606
« on: 28.01. 2017 15:00 »
I am interested to hear if any member has my A7 (PWC 606) which I parted with a couple of years ago. If so, how's it going?

 Look on E-bay for a guy with a huge amount of parts at huge prices. He is a bike breaker.

 I love his auctions for a junky, used reproduction part for twice the price of the same brand new, junky reproduction part. Then if he is asking 35 pounds for a 10 pound part, his shipping to the US is always listed something like 50 more. Its ridiculous. I wish e-bay would let you filter out certain sellers so you dont have to waste your time with their ads.

 If your bike went there, its sitting at his place in pieces waiting for someone who doesnt know any better.

Yup, he is well known for buying perfectly good bikes to break up and part out. Here is an example of what he is about. He wants £1,850 for that head.

Nope, I can assure you that the bike went to a classic motorcycle dealer & is still taxed & MOTd.
Had not heard of Mr Transit. We can do without people like him.

Mike (mb transit) is not that bad. He is in it to make a living and quite often our bikes are worth more in parts then complete. I bought the A10 from him as he thought with its history it would not have been right to break it. I must admit I am not sure about his sales strategy recently as he appears to have stopped auctions and started buy it nows with a very high price. Ebay is becoming an expensive sales platform for traders and I think this maybe a means of getting people to contact him and then dealing direct.

we need a spares scheme as there are some good engineers reproducing bsa parts, especially cycle parts. more so than when bsa first packed up. there is demand- the plunger air filter unit for example. this is being reproduced i hear but needs a benefactor/shop to commission and sell- maybe through this forum? maybe commission 6 at a time? some shops ,like srm, do their bit but its more guaranteed quality, cycle parts we need  .and some are being made now at reasonable prices. i m not talking about the indian stuff although its filling a void due to their advertising.
