    I think that is a fair price on a almost 30 year old crated bike.

    about 8 years ago (before I gave a shit about harleys) there was an auction in a littel shit stain town called Dix, Nebraska.
    they sold TWO still in the crate 1983 Harleys. They called them His and Hers, adn the build sheets said both were custom ordered to be matched paint. one was a sportster and the other was a shovel.
    I clearly remember they went as a pair for 2800 bucks.


    AND that they went to just some idiot from Kimball Nebraska.......
    Makes me wonder... I bet 100 bucks that he still has them in the crate. Nebraskans are weird like that.

    I would keep that shit in the crate if I bought it.

    A few years ago there was a hardware store that closed in the 1950's in a small town by me. It was boarded up and all the merchandise remained on the shelves. It was sold at an estate auction and the new owner opened it up. And could not believe that there were dozens of original Red Rider bb guns from the 50's on the shelf and it did not stop there. From fishing tackle to everything else that a hardware store had in the 50's. It was a completely stocked store.

    He inventoried everything and sold the contents at a two day sale.

    I also hears of a this Chevrolet dealership that was closed in the 80's. Had a few Corvettes with 0 miles on them sitting there.

    I need a deal like that. But something tells me CRFyou will be the one to find it before me.

    That is crazy.

    My wife and I buy old shit. AKA...we buy antiques. Fuck you don't laugh.

    Having said that we see stuff all the time that is NOS and still in the box. Stuff never opened from the 50's. That is the kind of thing that blows my mind. Sure it isn't motorcycles more like chrome paper towel holders but I love finding that stuff. It is amazing the type of things that get put away and never opened.

    It reminds me of those Nortons and Matchless were found in Belgium.

    I don't think this is a new story to the Cult but I put the link up just in case someone missed it before.

    I was going to mention that Belgium find. That was bat-shit fucking crazy.

    If it was something I didn't use and wanted to make a profit on I'd keep it in a crate. A bike though? Unless a museum wanted to pay top dollar right now I'd ride that bitch for sure!! Poor bike never got to have the fun it was intended for!

    Alright guys...

    I've been messaging this guy. So far I've got a Snap-on torque wrench, my autographed Ricky Carmichael riding gear from his last race at Unadilla, and my stock iron heads off my 8BA flathead.

    He's just about to trade me, I just need to come up with Amelia Earhart's Altimeter.

    Little help?



    And some effing how a little while back I saw Honda Z50s in the crate go for something crazy like $50,000. Early 80's... what the hell?

    I've got a couple gallons of unicorn blood & midget sperm chilling in the fridge that I can toss in to sweeten the deal.
