Market watch '63 TV 175 with 709 miles on the clock

Recommended Posts

What interest me, if I have to find something interesting about this, is that some dude/dudette made a series of bids that increased by a grand with no one biding, in the course of 3 minutes..........why

Another scoot 30 minutes from my house. I think whoever gets this scoot will find that it is in much worse condition than it looks in the pics and video. I thought $3500 was a reasonable price. I think $4900 is obscene.

Thanks 0824. But why an automatic bid when no other bid came in between 3600 and 4800???

My point is why outbid yourself to the tune of a 1200 bucks!

Ah ha. Thank you. I did not see that info when I clicked on "bids".

Thanks again. I have personally never bid on anything on ebay yet so ignorance plays a huge part in this query.

This is a great result for people who don't care about our passion and are just looking to flip a Lambretta to make some quick cash,

but a terrible result for those of us who are trying to get new people involved with Lambrettas for the right reasons.

At $7000, there's no meat on the bone to flip. On the other hand, a TV at $3500 is more likely to flip. Let it be..... Looks like 2 people are happy campers today the buyer and seller.

I wouldn't be a happy camper buyer at $7K 

 

In fact, I find the whole auction suspect. This was a very much "patina'd" bike for $7K. I don't even think a much cleaner TV3 is worth $7K. 

 

Like I said earlier - these are awesome bikes, but not that rare and this was the most common color post-64. If the sale was legit, congrats to the seller.

I will buy every last original condition 1963 metallic blue TV175 which is that straight for $3500 right now.

 

Start offering them up for all those so wise!

 

Great scoot, congrats to the seller and new owner!

I don't really give two dead flies about the bike or money.

I'll bet my mismatched socks we'll never hear of that scooter again.

Nice! Everybody will buy for $3500 but no one will sell them for $3500.

Hence, the original reason for the posting!  REALITY!

 

OG anything is the current rage whether it be scooters, motorcycles, cars, etc.

 

The prices are on the way up for good until the next recession and the proverbial pull-back as some are forced to unload.

 

It's only going to get worse moving forward.

i actually bid up until $6,000. that's what an original condition is worth IMO. you just can't find 'em and this one was straight. i wonder who got it.

Yea, but at least if you bought we'd see it around or at least you bay folks would.........that's all my point is.

I'm crack shot sure we will never see that bike again.

I hope to be proved wrong.
