Paul I can imagine, but I think it's all about what one is prepared to pay, and apparantly enough of us are willing! Supply and demand I would say... I'am afraid there's not any logical explanation for these prices other then above.
Can't argue with that Paul...I guess it always comes down to supply and demand. But whats "in" and whats "out" (fashion wise) is part of this equation and, in my own particular case, I have lost all interest in SQ4s, which is very different to how I felt in the 1990s, when I went out of my way to get a 4F and a Matchless Silver Hawk....virtually not feeding the wife and kids to achieve my selfish objectives
But how things have changed. I will finish my 4G, and then either sell it...or the 4F depending on how the 4G runs....or maybe sell both...but the problem is that many other people seem to have gone off SQ4s......they must be out of fashion.
