This little collector bike turns heads everywhere. These have been selling for way above book value, I recently seen one go for $10,750.00 on Bring A Trailer! A great investment and way more fun and cooler than stocks or mutual funds. The reserve is reasonable. The "Comprehensive Vintage motorcycle Price Guide" List a #2 machine at 5K. This is easily a solid #2.Actually this is the nicest one I have personally seen in decades, There is no title, (if there even was one issued) has been lost to the ages. Will come with a Pa. Legal Bill of Sale. A title can be had in any state for varying degrees of ease and fees, but unless you plan on registering and insuring it to ride on the roads (which I wouldn't recommend) you don't need one.Please look closely at the pictures (I know "snow Quality, LOL!)

from the boneyard, being parted out, or left to silently rust away
somewhere. Everyone does not need or want a top dollar show bike just to
look at. I prefer to supply "Blast from the Past Fun", super nice
bikes, but not too nice where you won't ride them and enjoy them. After
all that's what they're for. I recently took a leap of faith, and after
35 years and 300 plus bikes, I decided to follow my passion and do this for a
living, so like you, I need to be paid. DO NOT bid if you can't afford
it, have not cleared it with the wife, or have been drinking (heavily
anyways). If you do not pay, I will report you. I will not ship, but

No matter how much a 40 or 50 year old vehicle is
inspected, anything can happen. I have described it as honestly as I
