Wonder what this will go for, although overseas shipping on big stuff always makes pricing a bit tricky as far as getting a lot of bidders.

I can tell you from personal experience that whoever gets it will need to lose the kickstand if they don't want that nice arm to get beaten.

I think the thing that sold me on it was the "Lovely" Swing arm & shocks.

Wait, it also has an spare engine that is "Lovely".

That's it. I've got to get to this one before Newman does.

Seriously. This is about the Trickest twin shock Honda I've ever seen.

Wonder how much it will go for. I'm guessing $7000

I'm thinking the reserve is really high, as he's inviting offers to part out the nice bits. It would"t surprise me to see the auction pulled at some point.

I'm pretty sure I know of at least as nice a one as that in the works.

Yeah I had been watching the swingarm. 1625.00 is crazy. Another guy just put one up for sale, probably after seeing that one go for so much money. I was guessing it would go for about 800.00. I padi 700.00 for myt LOP arm and I felt bad after that. Now not so much.
I'm not seeing that bike go for that much. The economy still sucks but than again the swingarm went for 1625.00. Those forks have been going for almost 3 grand lately, so I guess in parts it's not that far off.

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.

Must be a lot better out there, I thought $8000 would be a shoe-in.
