Default Record Price For a Breisch Li'l Brother Engine?

I know I've never seen one bring this kind of money before. $2,582.00 The Jensen generator is only worth about $100. I am constantly amazed by the bidding on eBay!

There was no shortage of bids at 51 bids.
Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don't.
That was the seller's lucky day.......

"saw it running 10 years ago"

So in other words it probably does not run. Back up bidder please contact me.... I have one for sale at that price. I will will buy you a generator and will run the engine for you.

Almost motivated me to dig mine out of the cupboard and finish building it.

This one is about $1000 less at $1551.00 and looks to me like a pretty rough build. I would never give that kind of money for a hack job like that. Do you suppose naive people are falling for the "salesman sample" and "rare attic find" descriptions??
