    Probably about 1000 AUD, depending on condition, so as much as about 1300, and as little as about 800.

    Thanks Kevin, I was thinking around 1100, 1200. So are you thinking 1300 for REALLY good examples?

    Excellent.

    Actually I'm looking at one locally but the seller is a bit sneaky. . .

    Mine is a 1977 model and it was in pretty good condition when I bought it about eight years ago. I paid about $1500 back then, and they still seem to max out around that price, so I guess in real terms they are getting cheaper. There is a big difference between say a mid-1970s model and an early 1990s model.

    We're talking 500 C/Ms?
    Apart from age (and probable wear), only a few minor differences. Cosmetics, mostly.

    Sneaky in a non-threatening kind of way.

    I'm looking at buying a 500 c/m with a 80mm T* in mint condition. Would the price be drastically lower for the T* compared to the CF?

    About $150 - 200 less, i'd say.
