1930 S6 market value
« on: 30 Apr 2017 at 00:43 »
Hello All,

I have been offered a 1930 S6 but I am keen to know a guide price for this model.

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Not sure about the value - that depends on whether you and the seller can agree. Have a look at other 500cc 1930 motorcycles and see what you think is fair.

But do check it's a genuine 1930 model, and so eligible for Banbury. A lovely 1931 model is probably worth less than an ordinary 1930 model.

Good luck.

Leon

 Thank-you for your very fair advice, Leon. I am pleased to say we did agree a price and that is definitely all that matters. I have already covered 200miles on the bike since buying it. It is a wonderful machine for the daily work travels. A further note is that it is actually a T6 not an S6. I have noticed some issues with the clutch but after reading through other threads on this forum i believe i know what the problem is.

Good luck with it Chris. They are a very easy bike to live with. Respectable cruising speed and flexible motor with a comfortable ride. My T6 is the favourite of my bikes, just don't spend long in second gear, can be a bit noisy.
