Here's one that got away. Went to a huge estate auction this morning which had about a hundred motorcycles. I stopped by the day before for a preview. 99'% were really questionable being of post patina condition. Then there was this, a 1967 Matchless G80, original and complete. This bike came with the tank badges (kept off the lot for their own protection) tires that held air, great compression (although the compression release was not needed to turn it over) the gearbox and clutch functioned smoothly, and a clear title. I had a couple grand to go after it knowing I was more than likely going to be well short. I had to go and see if I had a chance in hell to grab it. It went for $3750. Damn! I just had to post this to share my pain.
