Navigator tinware on ebay

Posted by Maurice Turlington at November 18. 2017

Did anyone notice the Navigator tinware parts on ebay. Fork covers, styling panels, swinging arm etc. Sold for £365!!!!. Does this mean Norton Lightweight values are set to rise?

I didn't see that but I personally wouldn't bid that sort of money for the bits you mention.

No doubt about it Lightweight tinware is getting hard to find and someone must think it is worth it.

There’s been a red tank on eBay for the best part of a year, it’s not sold ...... £200 so it’s not all madness

I think that red tank has been on Ebay for the past two years.  The last tank I bought cost me £10 - and that was at Stafford a couple of years ago.  My standard Navigator cost me £350 - it was a runner with MOT and had a transferable number - but that was 20 or more years ago. It could be worth more dead than alive!

Sadly there are many bikes being broken up  for parts greed and need economics of scale!

True except the irony is the bits are used to put another back on the road.

Ummh!  A true recycling RE-CYCLE dilemma, with sadly human consequence and insurance costs no less!

Same chap sold a front & back wheel, with a front mudguard and stays for £77 earlier. Not a bad price. As for the tinware, getting the styling panels made (as NOC's Neil will confirm) is a nightmare & very expensive. So, although a lot of money was bid - it was a 'reasonable' price. I'll own up to bidding, but got left behind at around the halfway mark....

Damn how did I miss the wheels?!

jubilee for sale at £2800 at the moment, too much I think but worth watching https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/norton-jubilee/192368883638?hash=item2cca1437b6:g:MCAAAOSwO7hZ510Z

and another sold for £3495 or thereabouts !!

Hi Dan,

That Jubilee at £2800 has been for sale for ages but it does claim to have a transferable registration number which could account for at least half of the asking price but there still doesn't seem to be many takers.  I get emails every week from number plate dealers quoting big amounts for the most mundane registrations but if you reply they promptly try to sell you some more registrations !

The other one at £3495 I simply do not believe to be genuine. It has been on Ebay again for months and the caption says sold. I think it is just one of those 'come-on' ads as it looks good in the pictures.
