R1200GSA Auction @ The Motorcycle Shop - Nov. 22nd at High Noon

This bike was abandoned at TMS in 2011 after an accident. We have not been able to contact the owner, and we will be auctioning it off as per Alaska statute AS 34.35.175.

Live auction format, cash or check preferred (credit card with 5% fee), due immediately after sale. No phone bidding but you are are allowed to have someone represent you in person.

Pre-auction bids are welcome with a check or cash deposit of $250. If pre-auction bidder wins and does not follow through with funds, the next-highest bidder will be notified. Contact Andrew at TMS for details.

As far as we can tell, and according to DMV, this bike will have a clean title after purchase. The bike should not be ridden until it is officially in the buyer's name, so bring a trailer. We will assist with as much DMV paperwork as we can to get the title into your name.

Andrew

Not sure, some sort of front end collision. Telelever looks ok, but it will need at least one new fork. Engine is fine as far as we can tell, wheels look straight, frame doesn't appear damaged.

The guys went through the GS yesterday, fired right up, no weird noises or any such silliness. We took the tank and fairings off down to the frame to make sure we weren't missing anything and didn't find any other issues. See you guys Saturday!

Just a reminder that this is happening tomorrow. We've had a lot of interest so we're excited to see how many people show up!

Question Bent Beemer

So, what was the high bid?

If it went for less than my $500 budget I will kick myself for not bidding

$7500 and it ran good. Don't know who won it.

Andrew and Brendon did a great job telling folks they had parts for cheap and would do whatever it took to help fix it and if it turned out to be TOO much trouble or things went horribly wrong, the buyer could get their money back.

Thanks for coming out guys! New owner is uber-happy, and we're glad we were able to find someone to give this bike the attention it needs!
