You have to translate it...price is "by negotiation"...Bimotas difficult to price...hard to find a comparsion...see it a lot for Bimotas for sale in Italy..usually they put 1Euro as a price...then "by negotiation" in the description....at least putting a low price on the advert gets people to click and open it...then find its not the real price...but maybe by then theyre "snared"..and on the line, hook and sinker...

yes ...that's it !
if one looks for a bimota you know that will not have a very commercial price.
Just a question : how many euros you offer for this bimota? Tesi 1D ES 10/10 conditions? I'm a little bit curious

p.s. what's a sinker?

Well it is an ES and I always wanted one and if it was a minter and I had loads of dosh sitting in the bank I would probably start at 25.000 euros and see what happens.
Depends how desperate you are to have it and how much money you have to play with

when you lay a danbouy you have a large concrete lump attached to the mooring wire which is called a " mooring sinker " and holds the danbouy in position once laid.

Hook line and sinker...is when a fish bites the bait...and takes the Hook, the line and the lead weight that sinks the hook...taking all three means he's really on the line good and hard

How much?...early mint Tesi 1D's around the 15-20K mark...usually depends on the seller as theres never really more than one for sale at a time..all depends on condition and whether you intend to ride it....the bike could be "as new" but not used for 25 years...in which case to ride it its 2-2500 to recomission it...new tyres, bearings, fuel lines, maybe brake lines...all new fluids...new battery and that takes a day to 2 days to fit on a tesi.....And then theres the engine...Has it been run regularly? filled with Oil to keep crank bearings lubed? Or drained completely...Would you trust the brake and clutch masters and slave...and the calipers and seals if not used for 25 years? Do the clocks still work? Dodgy early Bimota own LCD units...only BCP has NOS versions of these...and a very steep 1500 euros a-piece...But...if the seller says all new but never used and for "collecters" then he isn't bothered about your costs to recommission it to ride it...but you would want monies taking off to put it back on the road...And would you be doing the work yourself? Those costs I've put in are for you doing the work...Valve clearances, new belts, shims, 4.5 litres of oil, new filter...Are the electrics all good? Fully clothed bikes like the Tesi and DB1 keep a lot of retained heat inside and can cook the electrics..fortunately the tank is plastic so no rust issues...but fuel pump good? inside the tank? or has tank been left dry and seals to fuel pump dried out etc etc...
