I am interested in the lot before the bike, the Alfa 166, I have nearly bought one of those on a few occasions in the past but the miles are a bit too high for my liking unless it is very cheap and I doubt it will be! :-D

The cyclemaster looked in absolutely pristine condition, hammer down at £500. Compare that to the rather rough chopper earlier on, and its outstanding value.

Very true, but I do think the choppers command silly money considering they started life as a "toy" bike!! No go on the GTi and the Lotus Cortina is going to be well out of my range!! :(

No it is just listed as a Rover Metro 1100. No red trim and no mention of GTi :)

Sadly the last of the GTi's has gone and I still have my money in the bank. So not much more interest in the sale except possibly the Princess at the end but I have to go and get some fresh air so may miss it!! Heyho, enjoyed the sale generally so roll on the next one!! :-D

I saw the episode where the Raleigh Choppers were auctioned and was astounded at what they fetched :shock:

The best bit was Dave's son doing his Chopper road test... He was far from impressed :twisted:

When I was a kid the Chopper really was THE bike despite the pain the gear lever could inflict :twisted: :lol:

Back then, the coolest of the cool was to have a Chopper and then at 16 progress to a Yamaha FS1E...

The FS1E commands quite a price these days too...

I'm in love :D

That is magic!

Not a bad price either... Make me wonder how much the one I have sitting on my drive is worth?
