I've been following this auction for the last few days. No, not thinking of bidding, just curious where one of these might end up. This looks about as good as a collector could hope for. I'd want to fire the bitch up and ride it, but I fear that's not going to be the case.

And, of course, anything you see finish on eBay always makes you wonder if it is really sold. You never know for sure.

Well it only had two original miles, too, so that could be a good indicator as to why it went as high as it did. I wouldn't bet on one with thousands of miles to come close.
