OMG, off to the shed, I got three or four of these kicking about, partly dismantled. The last ones I've seen on ebay UK went for 40-50 quid!

Good lord! I got one of these rebuilt completely for NZ$40 (about USD35), what is the buyer thinking?

Hells Bells.
I have 2 brand new ones sitting in the box.
Better go out and move them to the safe.
Last time I looked you could still buy them NOS for about $ 250.
It was a toss up as to a new AA or an electronic ignition the prices being nearly the same.

Perhaps a money laundering scam?

There's some fool selling about three odd parts of an AA unit on ebay uk for £95! He keeps re-listing them over and over, they will never sell, - worth about £5 if you were desperate. You can buy a complete scrap one for 25 quid.

The last one I sold went for £75 and it was perfect.

At that price if we all put our spare parts together we would have enough $ to start up BSA again !! I think the buyer has overdosed on my pills, or tripping.

Great idea, I'm in with two AAUs, a spare mag and a 650 alloy head if I can become the CTO of the engineering department.  *smile*

While you lot are being engineers and testers I will sit in the board room eating fine foods and drinking expensive wines and going for the occasional drive in my gold plated Daimler  *eek* Pretty much what the board did when BSA were still going  *ex*

Sorry Brian, will be a workers co-op. Don't want to go broke before we start. But I'd say you would have enough capital to be production super. Now who's got the hens teeth to be boss.
