Seems about right...they've been pulling that price for a few years now. I'm not saying the price is right...just that 2nd hand posties are in demand!

believe it was from being left idling while running around office blocks chatting little secretaries up
Apparently the CT110's didn't mind it...

Yeah still a 110cc but it's fuel injected and definitely goes better. Much smoother and more comfortable.

hmmmm...I ride the things and haven't heard or experienced it!! Having said that the NCB does have the engine a little more enclosed whereas the CT engine is fully exposed, so in really hot conditions it might make a difference

I was at Manheims auction in Melbourne about 6 weeks back. There were 30 or so posties for sale but only 4 were actually purchased. The remainder were passed in at a starting price of $700 with no bids. the 4 that sold went for around $800-850 (plus buyer's premium - forget how much).

I kinda got the impression that for most of these bikes it was 3rd or 4th time round at the auction with very little interest. Bit sad really.
