I'm trying to sell my Desoto again. I've been trying off and on for a couple years but I always pull the ad. I think I can keep my word this time. If I do sell it, I will be doing the responsible thing and putting it towards finally getting a pre-war motorcycle. It's been a dream of mine for a while, and this might be the only way it ever happens. I want to have a bike for the antique rides and trials. But finding a bike under £6,000 (and that's way on my high end) is going to be incredibly difficult. The good stuff starts around the £10,000 ($15,000 USA) range. Odds are I will have to sell some other bikes, as well. It has to be British. I'd prefer something over 350cc. And it has to have the right look. I've been looking at Matchless, AJS, Triumph, BSA, Velocette, and even Sunbeam. Most are just out of my potential. I guess I can get more serious about thinking about it after my Desoto puts cash in my hand.
