    Pretty /6, and dual-plugged, too.

    I agree Bill, that /6 is a looker.

    Gotta love the Harley trailer as a backdrop!

    I sent a polite note to the seller expressing my anger at these tactics. Here's the note I sent;

    I would really like to see a site that is independent of Ebay that would list the sellers doing such things and we could look up each seller and see what their past practices are. Is there such a thing? I don't have the computer where-with-all to start something like that. I'd like to give the Mega Corporation types like what Ebay has become something to worry about. If I was running Ebay I would not allow sellers like this to use the site.

    He also has this..http://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-BMW-R5...2089&pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr

    Isn't that a large tube swingarm from a much later rear disc model evidenced by the small tang to hold the brake clip?

    :lol3 :rofl :lol3 just "Thanks"?

    Nah, looks like it's a rare correct listing for a SWB /5. The tabs you see is to mount the LH rear strut.

    I mean, it's obviously a joke at this point. Bastard listings should be taken down, I seriously wonder why there isn't a system against it. It's just spam.

    I think it is super cool. I would love to have a diesel engine in my sidecar rig.

    It's definitely nice work shoehorning all that into a BMW frame. But if it gets 83mpg, wouldn't the original tank get you over 400 miles?

    Maybe the other tanks are for the bio-D.

    With no saddlebags, it would seem to be relegated to city commuting or hack duties...
