Its definitely not worth £10k. I bought one not that long ago from an engineering company for £1500, no carbs tho. Its gone to Australia now, for a paltry £2k , so sorry if anyone wanted one....

I would think that's much closer to the mark.

As Marc pointed out, it does appear to have been skimmed - a lot.

In case anyones interested, It was cancelled and re-listed with option to bid, which seems sensible...

No 'harm' in asking what he was,,,, never know, someone may have stumped it up, but I think he has a better chance of moving it on this way, unless his reserve is unrealistic.

I just put a BIG OLD bid on & it didn't make the reserve.
