1960 prices
« on: 31.12. 2012 16:10 »
I have just been given some mag's called Motor Cycling with Scooter Weekly dated 1960. There are some good articles but what caught my eye was...'Comerfords Ltd' 1954 Gold Star £138 cash or a 1959 500cc Clubman  £278 or a brand new double sidecar £74. If you want to know what your bike was worth then please ask, I will look it up.
Happy New Year

Hi Colin
in 1961 I paid 175 for a 1960 Gold Flash - was I ripped off?
Actually I don't think so as the previous owner was well known for looking after his bikes, Bought it from Darling and Swinney of Scremerston near Berwick upon Tweed
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

I found a 1960 Gold Flash in the November 1960 Edition £198, sounds about right. Stadium Googles 21 shillings that week and full Dolphin Faring £16.
