Is £29 a good price to pay for a Brooks B17???
« on: April 21, 2008, 03:48:21 pm »
Whilst out perusing a local bric-a-brac shop on Saturday I noticed a nice, looked after and hardly used Brooks B17.  The price ticket said £29.  Is this a good price?

It wasn't black, but seemed too dark to be Honey, and not dark enough for the other one ???
I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

B17s are usually about £30 new for the black ones with steel rivets. I think copper rivets may be more.

Chain Reaction are looking pretty good for prices. I just ordered a pair of Endura Humvee 3/4's; Chain Reaction were the only place anywhere in the universe that had them under £40. Free delivery too.
