Having told you about the bikes I've owned I thought "how much would it cost to buy the lot of them now?" Well let's find out through eBay & Biketrader. I've priced the best examples I could find.BSA Bantam D7 - £1,595 - 40 years ago I flung one into a skip (dumpster)
Yamaha YCS5 - £2,995 - wow! 25 times what I paid for mine.
Yamaha RD350 - £5,289 - for this '70's classic - a bit silly
Suzuki TS100 - £875 - this is a later model than mine
Suzuki GT500 - £3,995 - Considered a budget bike in its day - not now though
MZ TS 150 - £1,250 - I gave mine away
Suzuki GSX750 - £2,795 - not generally considered a modern classic - but this seller obviously disagrees
Honda CB250RS - £1,399 - Seems to becoming collectable
Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo - £4,995 - Strong prices for this '80's cult bike
Yamaha RD350 YPVS - £3,999 - They don't come much more cult than this - for wealthy hooligans
Yamaha FJ1200 - £1,799 - a lot of metal for the money
MZ ETZ125 - £800 - Yikes!
MZ 250 - £1,250 - an earlier model than mine - I couldn't find any Saxons for sale
CBF 250 - £1,950 - for this sought-after commuter
Total - £34,986
