1983 Honda C70C £1995

Asbo has been relisted on ebay, this time with a Best Offer and a 7 day turn around:

The whole restoration can be found in the Project Thread section, all 17 pages of it, apart from the early Photobucket photos that went missing

If you can hold your nerve, I'd advise listing it on an auction with a 99p start.

I can pretty much guarantee that you will get at least 2 potential buyers bidding against each other. You may even get well above your original listing price due to "ebay auction fever."

We just sold Mrs Capitano's little Peugeot Ludix for nearly £800 by listing it on an auction at 99p start. There have been several listed at fixed prices around £600 and less for a few months, none of which have sold. Local dealers offered between £100 and £200 for it. :)

Thanks, cap'n.
It is certainly a consideration and one I'd thought of.
It has its advantages. A C70C once went like that for around £2200 on a 3 day listing!
There is a danger that it could go for less than it's worth and I have always washed my hands of the "Reserve not Met" option as that is not playing the game.
I still look at the bike and wonder why I'm selling it but I've made the decision. If I don't sell or get a close offer I may well do as you suggest next year.
Let's wait and see how things unfold.

Im a great believer in there is someone out there who wants it and will pay for it. The only problem is if the advert doesn't reach a serious buyer at auction ( at this time) ,it may sell well under value.

It rarely happens.

I've sold hundreds of guitars (no exaggeration) and a fair few motorbikes on ebay using this method and 99% sold for more than comparable ones sod at fixed prices.

Yes, you have to hold your nerve. Selling my Harley Davidson FXD on there was a bit nerve wracking. Typical price in 2006 was around £6000. I put mine up at a £1 start with no reserve and it was at £2800 until the last 10 minutes of the auction ... when it whizzed up to £6500 and sold for just under £7k in the end. 8-)

Plus one there. Yes people Tend to enjoy bidding on a item rather than buy it now or classified , not that there is anything wrong with these formats , But it gives a person a sense of well- being if won by auction.
