Talking offers of over 50-60k I'd reckon maybe even double that

Any serious buyer would want to know what the debt liabilities are but could be a good thing for someone with spare cash to chuck about

Wouldn't have said it'd be anywhere near that @roco - baring in mind the remaining stock was up for sale around the 10k/15k mark if I remember rightly. The brand itself is obviously strong, but having been out the limelight for a while now they can't be expecting too much in terms of goodwill etc I shouldn't think.

Will be interesting to see what happens out of it though, personally I'd love the chance to get involved in the re-incarnation (hint if anyone has deep pockets! ;))

Fair enough I forgot about the stock being up for sale for that amount as it was the stock value that threw me

if debt or obligation free could be a bargain at 10-15k

Feels like backing a dead horse.

No debt liabilities. You're buying the stock and brand, that's it.

In terms of price - I think someone savvy (and with time) could sell the remaining stock at less than trade price on eBay and still get the brand for free.

Was interested in this a while back but sadly meetings never got anywhere and this was prob 2 years ago now.

Is there an upto date list of what stock remains @Tom as Id imagine its changed since the last one I saw?

There's roughly 2/3s of what there was when you last looked, I guess, as we did around 35,000 (revenue) worth of kit up until August last year.

Stock list is below:
