Hi to all, I have a C5 that I stripped a while ago with the intention of restoring it. Over time it has been sat outside, then put in my garage when I moved house, yet again waiting to be restored. Being honest with myself I don't think I will get round to it as I have a new job that requires me to travel,mainly overseas. I wouldn't have a clue on value but I also wasn't born yesterday. The C5 is partly stripped, does need a full restoration but all parts are there,including a rusty mast. I was going to put it on Ebay but I would rather it go to an enthusiast who could bring it back to it's former glory. Would you have an idea of value ? I live Between Liverpool and Manchester if anyones interested. Many Thanks, Geoff

Hi Geoff I have paid £80.00 for a complete one from Southport and paid £150 for another, I think I dropped on with both. I have today travelled 156 miles for a chassis, body, rear light, and handlebars and paid £80.00 It's what you think it's worth and what the buyer wants to pay Regards Mick Hope this helps

It's 95% there but stood outside for a good while. Front light, back light and she'll look salvageable. I am just off to collect daughter so will have a better look later.
