Caminargent prices are strange... For a production bike, and not even a particularly rare one, they fetch a lot of money. They just seem to capture people's imagination.

The bike on e-bay is a nice one, though. It's a very early machine, and it had a lot of very rare parts. How many pre-war Stronglight cranks have you seen for sale?
