Most of us are by the looks of it...wondering what figure they would charge for a full restoration?

Not knowing much about the model or spares/rebuild costs is this a bargain?

If these really are fully rebuilt suspension units then I reckon they are probably good value for money. These are complicated pieces of engineering requiring specialist and prior knowledge to sort them out this would not come cheap!

Unless you can do the work yourself, restoring an Aprilia nowadays is not for the faint-hearted or for anyone with a short pocket - sadly!

no doubt there are many hours of work in this but you can buy a cheap new car for this sort of budget....

makes one wonder how much it would cost to have it reproduced new  in china.......

My selfish wish - Aprilia prices rise, projects become worth doing both in terms of cars being saved and 'good user' cars being worthy of expensive attention - prices then drop back again to affordable levels but the quality and quantity of cars has improved.

My other selfish wish is for all those cars in Italy with prices going up and up as people put their money into 'real assets' then become very affordable as they have to sell 'the family silver' to put food on the table.

The only excuse for such selfish thoughts is having let an Aurelia go at the end of a twenty year period of stagnant prices only to see them then double.
