Who says Bonds don't command big prices?
This one just sold for a little shy of 5k.

I was very tempted as it is such an outstanding design departure.
My heart was there but my brain won in the end - unusual result.
I would have sold the Heinkel scooter for that Bond.

That is because it is a 'Bond Scooter' not a Minibike. Thus its very very rare. I wonder how much a rarer Bond Scooter would be? Still there is hope for the poor old Plas yet.

Despite the advert this is not a Bond Scooter it is a Bond Mini Byke
