Yeah, them Matchsticks are getting pretty rare.....
The deeper issue to me is the classic bikes and cars becoming more "collectable" That usually means prices double and NOS parts disapear so the guys who actually love and ride old bikes wind up with repro parts if they're luckey, while all the cool stuff sits in some rich dip****s climate controled storage facility waiting for his "investments" to appreciate.
Why can't they be like Trump and spend their money on crappy toupee's ?
Getting rare? Weren't Matchsticks rare when they were new? I don't think I've seen even three of them on the road in the 45 years I've been into bikes. There may have been more of them around, but probably they were in garages being repaired.
