Hi Starsky, I edited the post, it was 115k.
105k buys a lot everywhere. its a lot of money. there are a few early 23s at around the 160-170 mark so I thought this at least not the top end of asking prices. The split bus pricing debate has been going on for 25 years to my knowledge, and probably decades before that too, I'm into early Harleys, and they are at the 30-50k mark so expensive classics isn't solely the domain of busses.

Damon.

A very nice bus and honestly too cheap, just look around at what prices a top end 21 window LHD drive bus is making (I know of at least 4 at £140k plus) and that makes this RHD 23 window a bargain

No idea what the guys going on about regarding London, that's house prices dude not bus prices - why would anyone think or expect it to be more expensive because it lives in London!

Good luck with the sale, the bus is in no way overpriced it's more to do with the fact there are very few people nowadays who have £100k to spend on any car, regardless of make

This one sold in January in the US, a stocker but shows that there are people prepared to pay what it takes to own one still

That's £157,883 even with today's .... exchange rate!
