Two other bikes I have had that command a good deal more dough than I paid for them new were my 1968 Norton Atlas, ($1200 new), and my 1972 toaster tank R75/5 ($2100 with craven bags). Both of which got ridden into the ground. I thought the toaster tank was the hands down ugliest tank on the market at the time. I still do but some people really like them. One thing about them though, if you cleaned all the bugs off you could use them as a mirror for shaving.
