Well I wouldn't regard it as "mint". The seat is certainly damaged and I don't regard 15700 miles as being particularly "low mileage". I'm only looking at pics on my phone at the moment and can't see much other detail.
Still, £510, at this stage of the auction, is a good price.

Salisbury's only 30 miles away, I might go up and have a nosey. Or not, if the cold and rain don't stop! :)

I also never, ever bid on a bike where the seller has put a "Reserve" on it.
You forever seem to come up with "Reserve not met".
This means it's not an auction. The seller is hoping you're daft enough to pay what he wants for it.
Well that's how I see it anyway.

Back when I was selling guitars on eBay, the curse of the reserve price was a lesson quickly learned.

I needed to get £1500 for a Les Paul so I put a £1500 reserve on it. After running for 3 weeks and 3 separate auctions without meeting reserve I came to the conclusion that I had massively overpriced it.

I stuck it on a last auction at a start price of £1 and no reserve and prepared for a financial spanking.

It sold for £1800!

I auctioned everything the same way after that. 8-)
