To be fair this has some nice stuff on it and I’ve seen some far greater “tell 'im he’s dreamin” auction examples. Not saying he’s overly realistic but I reckon you can always go down in price (and maybe off eBay) if you start off too high.

I maintain that no one is going to be paying $2600 for it in this climate.

I concur with Erle on that Paconi. I’m confident in saying if it was listed at half the BIN price, still wouldn’t see a bid. And although there might be some nice stuf on it, it’s a bit of an eyesore IMO.

This takes the cake for me, at least the paconi has got quality if not highly desired parts albeit miss matched to FOA’s taste.

The Paconi is a lovely resto done with a fair bit of detail and patience, but this machine is a joke for the asking price.

Not even wheels? I’d have seen that in this thread at even half that price with wheels, holy cow.

And that Kerry Hopkins, BIN for $2000, as above its a nice collection if parts but $2000 is a lot.

Agreed, and the ‘no wheels’ bit at the end just takes the cake. haha
