I've owned a couple of TBSs in the past & fancy another one prices seem to be holding well with a good one being over £4000 l only ever have one bike so my present bike a TR5T would have to go. I suppose it's best to buy a bike with all the bits on rather than try & source them s/h for eBay? I've enjoyed my flirtation with a classic bike but l've realised l've got to the age where l can't be arsed messing with a bike & l really miss the electric start & heated grips on my Tiger 800 but l can't really justify another Tiger so maybe a TBSs would fit the bill, l've considered other makes but I've owned several Meriden & Hinckley Triumphs so would like to stay with Triumph but l have looked at a new CB500X & rather fancied one??
I suppose really my question is here will the TBS hold its price in the long term if looked after?

I would think it would hold its value...

T-bird sport

Just sold my 1998 T-Bird for £3500 (paid £2200 7 years ago). I was going to keep it after I bought a Street Twin, but realised I would never ride it again. Its heavy , top heavy which is worse. It looked nice and handled OK , but thats it. I wouldnt buy one again>:)

TBS

Yes, it will not only hold it's value, it is already appreciating more than any others in the Hinckley range. Although seemingly top heavy when stationary, once upon the move, as light as a feather.
