How much is a Silk 'worth'?
« on: 11.07. 2018 08:45 »
My pal got involved putting the top back together on one for someone, and getting it at least running again. He's mostly a Japanese orientated type of guy, and hated it for its many engineering ... err ... foibles.

He's now involved in disposing of it for the owner. They turned down an offer of £8.5 last night, holding out for £12k. Can they be that good/rare?
Various, including ...
