Low prices. $2900 for a ‘73 Triumph TR5T? I’d have had that...
The TR5T having no title might have kept the price down, they certainly sell for a premium in the UK.... but in saying that all of the posted winning bids were fairly low including the Norton's.
This is a relatively small, private auction; so, prices will not be as high as regional/national/annual auctions with a large crowd of deep-pocket bidders.
Still, generally low...
I thought the prices were high considering that there was about a 25% premium to be added for the auctioneers fees and Wisconsin sales taxes. Then, if you were not on site and we’re bidding by Internet you had to consider transport and on site storage until transport was arranged. Then, after it arrives here in Taxifornia, I have to pay transfer tax, maybe sales tax, personal property tax, and registration fees along with Purchasing insurance as precondition to registration
I placed bids on four or five machines and all of them were topped by factors of her at least two. The TR5T in the description said that the engine did not turn over. There was a rolling basket case Ccommando that went for way too high a price considering condition
