Why am I giving these places advertising? Yup, unless a company pays me, or gives me something, I don't promote them.

I put the adv sticker on that bike when I owned it. I posted it in the "<$1500" thread.

It's gained a few stickers since I sold it. I wish I hadn't.

No stickers on my toolbox.

Indeed, they are pretty and it would be a shame to toss them.

stickers aside, it looks like Snowbum wrote his ad copy for the auction.

That's one funky fresh duck. Not my kinda thing, but to each his own.

I think the fairing is kind of cool. Never seen that particular one before.
What's with the length of the add? That and the colors and fonts make the seller look like an idiot and/or asshole.
On the subject of stickers: I too don't like product or brand stickers, except on my toolbox at home. On my cross country trip I bought stickers of places I'd been and put them on my side cases. That was cool.

Where's the debate on the value of the item in question?


Yeah too many stickers , etc. But the question is value. I've seen, heard of Alazurras of this vintage going for $1000 to $1500 .

They're eligable for Vintage Middleweight Superbike in AHRMA and can be very competitive there.

$4500 is a bad joke.
