The most expensive documented sales...

Recommended Posts

Indeed. And when I say beat, they were beat. Loss of coating, lots of scratches and beat stickers. The gazes and offers those got blew me away for a fork, let alone in that condition.

 

Not sure why they are so sought after, there are rarer forks, but as you say, its all subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Funny how fickle trends are over the years with no visual driver of the change.

:Scrutiny:

 

This is puzzling to me.  I guess someone thought they were Cook Bros and maybe so... the seller isn't sure.  But still... the CBR cruiser culture is such a interesting niche, it seems to attract a particular demographic willing to spend an amount of money that is unparalleled.

Ive owned three sets of those Skyway forks. NEVER paid more than $200 each. All back in 05-07. I know of a couple of other sets that have brought almost $1300 each recently. Ill never be able to own another set. Thats just stupid money.

How about $685 for these Torker pads... OMG.... but then again it is not like you can just walk into Ralph's Bicycles and buy a set.

That is crazy. Especially in this era of ultra present knock-offs. Imagine dropping 3K for a set of Crook Brothers instead of Cook Brothers?
