    Did you see the price? He's only asking $25. This is a steal. I'd go over there and put it in the trunk of my car tonight but I'm at least 7 states away.

    FFS, I'll PAY someone $25 to buy it!:eek1
    What a bargain. I wish we had things like that. Add two zeros to that number as a starting price and it would probably still go up on our Oz ebay.

    2nd day and it's still there. I realize that it may cost $5000 to put this in condition you would be happy with but it would only cost me one half that much to make it my daily rider. Or so I dream.

    If it is honestly only $25, someone needs to step up, hop in their truck, and get it.

    Prepare the usual. Simichrome, Marvel Mystery oil, and a empty credit card. Keep speed dial on the phone for Bench Mark Works, Motorrad Elektrick, Bob's BMW and Max BMW.

    It would make a great winter project for someone... Me? I just want to be able to maintain what I have!

    I emailed him too. I'm not far. I told him I'll pick up as soon as he is available if it's legit.
