    I think around 2,500, no more than 3 grand DC.

    I know, I'm crazy, but for some reason the Honda Turbo,
    in the crate, if I had the cake........................

    In one of the pics there is an orange tank from a 1973 Honda 350G. Just like the one I had, really takes me back.

    I've been dropping by Skip's since 1975 when I was in high school, got some incredible deals from the man in his one of a kind dealership. Sorry to hear he had passed on.

    Whenever I see auctions like this I wonder how the addiction gets so bad. I have a bunch of bikes that I really don't want to part with and always see others that I'd like to buy but if I wait a day or so the urge goes away and reasoning takes over. I just wonder what triggers the mind to hoard like this?
