$ 19 400 last bid.

Anybody want to give me a hand building SFC reps?
I have all that's needed apart from the plastic for a couple.

I was definitely bidding above my pay grade on that bike. It's super clean and I could see riding it and evolving it over the years. I guess I'll just focus on 3Cs now since Jim has declared they are the future. ;)

As always the market dictates the price. That someone forked out so much for that just shows that regardless of what a cobble up it is, someone just might fork out big for it. Go for it, Paul, but I doubt Europe would see such prices because people know Laverdas.
Anyway, it could have been worse, it could have been made into a hipster cafe racer with exhaust wrap, a brown suede covered wooden seat etc.

Insane. My super special SFQ when it's finished wouldn't get a price like that, and the comparison between the two would be chalk meets cheese. A fool and his money eh. Maybe they think they've got 'emselves a thoroughbred endurance racer there! Wow! Looks great - and it's orange!

I thought the same! Questionable bids perhaps an influence?

Well, yes and no.
Cadmium would seem to age quite nicely.

My SFC has received cadmium.
It did seem very latin pimp on the photos I got and can't find but on the later photos appears quite correct.

Paul

I am corrected ....... it is a grey colour. For aviation parts there is a final chemical added afterwards that turns the cadmium a gold colour. If any spots were missed then those spots won't turn gold so they know the process was incomplete.

Thak you Paul.

I should know more next weekend since the beast should be finished and delivered pending testing if it stops pissing down in Northern Italy.

Paul.

I wonder how thirsty he is ......?

Very.
But it's bubbly water for me, haven't touched a drop of alcohol in over 3 years.
Or tea, with milk, ? l'anglaise.
or coke!

Good man ...... I'll send you some tea bags ...... or a bottle of San Pellegrino. Your choice!

Thanks a lot.

I very much enjoyed some Welsh tea recently.

Alcohol got to the point it was killing me quickly rather than slowly.

Perrier is very nice as well.

Salute!
