Thorens TD-124 newbie

Hi,
I am interested in purchasing a TD-124 (perhaps something on ebay) and restoring it. Since i have just stumbled onto the cult of the TD-124 and now next to nothing i was hoping some kind souls would give me a push in the right direction;
What questions to ask
What to look for
What a decent and fair price is?

Thanks
Neil (maxed out on Rega P3)

If you're into sound rather than cult I'd stay away from vintage TD124 and obscene prices it's commanding. I have one, in nice restored condition and although because of sentimental value (it belonged to a friend ) I will never sell it, I don't think it is anything special. Yes, I read those stories too. It's just an old , fartsy clunker and most anything modern (and for sure you're moded Rega) will trounce it easy. Don't buy into vintage mania except you're looking for certain decor in your room.
