I suspect a realistic reserve has been set, already over £5100.00 with reserve not met so guess it will not be such a bargain but still only one in 150 made and access to an exclusive owners club:rolling: .

I spoke at great length to its owner last night and have to say got on like a house on fire and he told me the reserve , i'm amazed that the bike is at its current price on ebay and it does need a couple of things doing but nothing major . its claimed to be the first in the country and the previous owner attended the launch of the bike years ago. I am watching with interest and ended up only 30 miles away from it but had run out of driving time :( .

unfortunately he wont end the auction early and at the rate its going it'll be more than what the last three sold for by a very big margin - good luck to all that bid - he'll miss it as much as if we sold our favourite bike (he does have other bikes but nowhere near worth what the LE is ).

That's not what his ad says. States advertised elsewhere, and will end the auction if sold.

Well it looks like curiosity is creating a bidding war but if you ask me i know the reserve :D . chap paid 11k for it so he's not losing loads but then current market for Benelli is suspect and maybe the LE is the exception to this...... i will wait :p

If he paid £11k and isn;t loosing loads,

I wonder what the reserve is[ Angus;)]

Thats standard stuff isnt it Bob to cover yourself if your bike doesnt look like its reaching its reserve as its always best to state advetised elsewhere. reserve is in between yours and colins price for your LE's :D . Nice guy i wish him well with the sale ps did i say i was going to Colchester this weekend :rolling:

11k reserve reasonable i think that these bikes should be held high so those that own and have spent a lot lot on purchasing should be able to hold on to there investment to profiteer in the future for there children . so my bid is in ive told him my max b4 he pulls it of ebay , al you could be in the runnning if u need a tenner ask .
regards richard m

Its not the main thing i would of thought on Benelli lovers minds in that how much you can make on it in the foreseeable future - greed is an ugly thing :(

I want an LE not to make a pile of cash but because its the ultimate expression of the Tornado .

Hope whoever wins it rides it to appreciate how good it is :)

ps reserve is not 11k thats what he paid for the priviledge of owning an LE .
