if that bike is 'barn fresh', I'm a chinaman. Where is the ingrained dust in the inaccessible corners, the surface corrosion on the chrome, the cracked saddle and perished tyres?
we're obviously meant to understand that the bike is in full rideable condition and has been ridden recently. It has plainly had some superficial refurbishment and a thorough clean-up, at the very least. I'd be looking for actual 'as-found' pictures at this point.... looks like an older restoration to me.
This is going to cost someone a lot of money, it's nearly $25,000 already and it hasn't even reached reserve. It's a relatively short-period sale with a seven-day settlement period. Someone has put in a big bid three days ago and the other bids are ramping against it. I'll be interested to see who actually wins it, and for how much.
I quite enjoy watching ebay, I like going to auctions come to that. But pay that kind of money for a bike with no known provenance or history? Not me, especially in a country where the police seize bikes with bad numbers and the bike has a huge weld across the number boss and no documents.
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...
