Gary Kohs - What's this guy smokin'?

These are rare bikes, but a REAL Disco SS just sold on eBay for $17,001.00 a few months ago. The owner who sold it was located in Florida. He got the bike from a friend in Switzerland, who had the bike for 20 years before he sold it to him 10 years ago. It was REAL.

$50,000...? GOOD ONE!

An object is only worth what someone will pay for it.

That bike in Florida was a CS made to look like an a CSS. It had the Earls Fork added and an extra S stamped on the engine case, but the engine number was a CS. And there were other obvious items that made it a CS to anyone who knows anything about these bikes. A very nice CS for 17K, but not a CSS worth 40k plus today if you can find one. I just love the experts on these forums!

If you're such an expert, what were the obvious attributes that showed it to be a CS?

I bet you're basing your decision strictly on the engine number. Wrong!

Whatever he's smokin, I want some. Mr. Kohs comes across as a really nice guy, who's obviously very successful. I pretty sure Mr. Kohs is aware of your second point.........

I think thats a long way from money in the bank Alex Anyhow, I am going to that auction on the weekend and will report back - I am betting it won't see a single (real) bid over $10k.

I must say this IS a very interesting thread

I normaly keep way away from this type of slanging match. Other forums might think this is normal, but the great thing about this one, especialy the classic section, is that we all get on.

No one on here is an expert and we all learn from each other, i hope.

There is indeed a great deal of crap talked about MV's, more so than almost any other marque it seems. It is only by passing on what we do know that the right info can get out there.

If mistakes are made, we are all human after all, then lets help each other out....not slang each other off.

Funny, as soon as big money comes into the equation things go down hill.

Remember this is supposed to be fun guys!
