I honestly believe like with magic cards there are sadly two separate markets. Collectors and players/riders.

It’s always been cool to me that I’ll most likely see some of my favorite machines turn 100 years old, and I believe in some sort of preservation in that. I love rattle canning a bike and pushing it till the crank blows, but when I see a nice clean bike rare or not, I feel if it catches a premium it deserves it. It’s easy to point out a stock maxi and say “how is that worth 1.5k????” But at the same time the more we destroy, the less good examples there are for preservation and appreciation.

Are there predatory people looking to make a quick bucks off our hobbie? Yeah and they are assholes. Like people trying to catch those high premium prices for a ratty non runner.

If you look at cards (I’ve collected and played magic as long as mopeds) the difference in price between desirable old cards can skyrocket between lightly played and near mint. I honestly feel the price his bike went for is worth it, it’s an iconic bike that everyone knows and most love. It’s always been cool to me that most people don’t even try to fix them up when they find em just keep them as is (the blue rattle can one comes to mind from what I remember he just rocked it as is) but I also think the swapped ones were cool as fuck,

It’s a weird and complicated thing for me, nothing is sacred. But I do think it’s cool to preserve old things for others to enjoy in the future. I do also value keeping the hobby accessible though if moped prices were what they are today, when I was 16, I may have never got one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
