How about this bike - Triumph

I was idly leafing through a copy of Octane last night and without actually doing any work to look at back copies, I am sure that many of the prices ( where they actually quoted prices) were up by at least 50% in the last year. More to the point I wonder how many of them actually sell since I did see several dealer adverts when the cars could be seen going through the Silverstone auction weekend.

Bubble?

Hurricanes have always attracted premium prices, they didn't make very many. A decent US-spec T160V would be about half that. possibly less.

In my somewhat biased opinion, £1.4m for a Hawker Hurricane is better value for money than £30k for a bit of Triumph Motorcycles history!
Spitfires are even more expensive, even though there are more of them and harder to keep in the air.

Tell me about it. I’m in the market for a Morris Traveller, nothing fancy just functional. Cheapest I can find it £6500. Which is just plain daft!

The market on most things has gone a bit mad of late. I recently traded in my Porsche and got almost the amount I paid just over 18 months ago. And this was a brand new car! Many sought after and/or vintage modes of transport have seen a significant hike in price. I can't recall the article or source but I was reading that due to the chip shortage that has caused certain makes to be selling used cars at new prices that it then had a trickle down affect on the aforementioned types of vehicles.

I reckon its the "perfect storm" in anything that can be labelled collectable or investment. On the one hand we have miserable negative real interest rates and stock markets going nowhere. On the other hand we have lots of people who have had a "good pandemic" saving from not spending and profiting from government uncontrolled largesse. Hence the prices of second homes, boats , collectable cars and anything else that people can see a return on.
