Strom/Ural rig on Ebay

The bike is sold. (Several hours after the auction ended)

I know what the price was, but, in case the buyer is an ADVer, I will defer from saying what it was and let him speak up. I spoke with Jim (the seller) both during the auction, and today. Straight-up guy, had no knowledge of sidecars, and was shocked by the prices I told him today. I was seriously considering buying it for close to his "Buy it Now" price of $8,495.00, but it would cost $800 to ship it to Washington state, and I'm two weeks post back surgery with a yet-to-be-determined outcome, although things seem to be progressing well enough. If not for the back problem, I would have bid $7,750. Turns out that was below his reserve, but not much. He said the rig went to a "gentleman from Utah" who called him with a hundred questions during the bidding. I'm glad it found a good home!
