"Nice bike mate! Wotsat werf then?"
« on: 29.10. 2009 09:14 »
My response used to be "About half what its cost me"

... whilst looking at adverts recently, and thinking how glad I was that I've hung onto mine over the years, as there's no way I could afford one/justify the expense now, how terribly expensive they are now, Rocket Goldie rep? thats just an old shonk with clipons!blahblahblah...I realised that these days it probably is worth what its cost me over the years.
I don't know how I feel about that.

I still preferred it when people asked  "Wottleitdoo?"

Cheers,
Iain

Right you are; the word "Worth" doesn't mean anything anyway, until there's a seller willing to sell and a buyer willing to buy, and they agree on a price.  And THEN it's just a data point, just because your A10 sold for so much on this day doesn't mean that MINE will sell for that ....

It's none of anybody's dam business anyhow, it's like asking "So how much cash you got in the bank today, mate?"

Right o then here we go,
I have a friend who asked me if I know of an M21 for sale to which I replied yes, I then contacted the old boy who has one for sale but he does not know how much to sell it for (wotsit werf) the mag is reconditioned it is sound and a runner but has an age look to the paintwork. It may still be taxed but he could not remember, its in the shed with the other bikes he has (about 6 or 7) just in that shed.
Sott Squirell anyone?
So come on then Wotsat werf then?
