I found a nice Brooks on Yahoo Auctions Japan or Mercari (I shop through Buyee and highly recommend it) and paid slightly more than $100 for it. So yup, you can find good shit out there. Unfortunately I didn't quite like the fit and gave it to another member here. But for a hundred bucks, I was happy to sample it. It will make a good keeper for someone. I was surprised of the quality too.@JibranK looks great.
I've been endlessly searching old schott's and vanson's at ebay, mostly cafe racers and collared single riders (like the Vanson Enfield, Oxford). Just picked up an inexpensive 60's-70's Brooks cafe racer via ebay. I figure for $100 it's worth a shot even if I end up with a catch & release.
