In­deed it does and no more so than in the world of clas­sic and fu­ture clas­sic mo­tor­cy­cles. This month Jim Lind­say tests his Du­cati 996 Bi­posto for us. Now, back in Jan­uary 2014 we tested the orig­i­nal 916 model and said you could get an early one for £3500, prob­a­bly not any more. But look at this pic­ture… you can’t ar­gue that this is a clas­sic – and now a very us­able one. Now go check the free ads at the back of the mag and you’ll see it’s up for sale for £5500. With the work that’s gone into it, it’s worth it… What things are worth is very im­por­tant to us here at CMM – and doubt­less to you guys too. We see that the real cheapie clas­sic is prob­a­bly on its way out, which is why we will be bring­ing you our new CMM Mar­ket­place sec­tion from the Novem­ber is­sue. In it, we want to give you the real cost of our flashy core clas­sics, wor­thy of an in­vest­ment, all the way down to the ‘meat and two veg’ bikes that can be bought and run on much less wonga. And the com­ing clas­sics too… This month I’ve been knocked out by £7000 Honda Gold Wings (there’s one in our free ads) and the prospect of ex­ot­ica like the Benelli Tor­nado from £2500… Prices are on the up so it’s bet­ter than money in the bank…
