Since I missed out, again, on the deal of the century I figure I may as well cast a line out. If anyone has an extra, original 1909/11 gas cap like the one Lang's recently (and quickly) sold on the classifieds I'd be interested.
It sold quick because it was a $225 part for $40! I bet there are plenty gas caps like that one around, but at their “market price”.
Why would Lang's sell it so cheap? Surely Don knows the value of the early T parts.
Well if he doesn't, he does now...
Bill, Don bases a lot of what he sells off of what he bought it for. Sometimes not just what they are straight worth. I think this was buried at the bottom of a pile of stuff he got and our reproduction version of the same cap sells for $31.50. He didn't spend a lot on it..so he gave someone a deal. Nothing wrong with that.
I've always had a great respect for Don, but not my opinion just went up a notch! Attaboy, Don!
Bill, We make the reproduction, $29.95 plus shipping
