I can spot some Adidas bags in the background, if they're original also then you're challenging me as a keeper of retro stuff! :)

That looks really smart, nice one. 8-)
At this rate, the money you got for the Capri will soon be gone if you keep buying Choppers!

Are you buying them for potential future appreciation of value?

Andrew.

Hi Andrew,
This one you mean???
Well the prices are holding steady so I should always get my money back, and it's nice to have something to look at rather than sticking it all in the Bank or wherever and as with everything I always want the most sought after and/or best I can find :D

Hi Andy,

I've noticed! :)

The prices of the Chopper bikes will only ever go up, as in my opinion, there will always be a healthy collectors market. I think that your investment is secure.

Correct you cant trust anyone ....Plus the dryness of an Indoor Room will also help keep them in top condition :D

Hi Neil,
It's been on there for a while.
In the current market it's too much at that price, it needs to be in near perfect condition...... Overpricing like some of the Ford Brigade.
Although some people in the know say Original is worth more than Restored.....
