That sounds like a lot but a repoped one is 1249.00 with the engine clutch cover and scrub brake. i don't know if they sold any at that price but a original one should be worth more.

and you probably would have to pay sales tax on the new one also.

Were it simply a frame it would be pretty high but it's a roller that's ready for an engine and it's one of the most desireable minibikes around! I feel great having paid $50 for mine but it's a few hundred bucks away from the condition this purple beauty is now in!

The trouble is that the value of a vintage Taco is in it's originality!

This one is painted very authentically (I assume you used Joe's color - "powder" coat, not power) but the Azusa wheels and new non-Carlisle tires, combined with the removal of the scrub brake and the addition of the Azusa drum brake (i'm guessing) really lower the value! I know you will say that they are mechanically better but they have no value, and detract from the vintage valuation!

And comparison to Joe's new manufactured bike prices is pointless - his prices are based on what they now cost to build - in fact they have no other value!

Yeah that's why the no appraisal rule is in place, the market and the buyer set the price in the end! It's a really nice minibike but I'm more comfortable buying on the cheap off CL or just stumbling across some sweetheart deal!
