as i recall the last BSA goldstar in a crate about 30 years ago went for US$30 000 then. a well sorted goldstar now goes for $15 000 to $18 000

the crate bikes arent immune from deterioration in there, though. all the rubber will be shot, and if it was stored in a damp spot there will be rust

I wondered about this. Valves being open and air exposed to dry cylinders. A transmission that hasn’t had oil on the top half of the gears for four decades. I wonder if it would ACTUALLY be under warranty?

Depending on the price I reckon it would be worth buying - looks like minimal restoring needed. Chopped up ones of these and the 400s are going for big money - at least in Oz they are.
