    There was only 4 bids total for them. I forgot I bid on them, until I got a notification it was the ending soon.

    I'll most likely send them to jogaca for a revamp this winter.

    Second, more invasive, knee surgery next Tuesday. Getting scopes in the front than another cyst removal in the back. Also getting some hooks installed into the bone to support a tissue graft. Hope it fixes my knee this time.

    From Jeep to Ford in 30 minutes.

    Tow bar cut to size, brackets welded on and fitted, all it needs now is the wiring.

    ^^^^ Nice Fred, A friend of mine bought one of the same quads last year. He paid an even grand for it and the plastics were rattle bombed black with bald tires. I don't know why he didn't call me,, I know he could have got it cheaper, I think it was like an impulse buy. She does run good though and serves it purpose well. For $475 you got a deal man.

    in my search for a vintage streetbike to restore/mod, i was seeing prices on ebay of $250-ish to ship a bike across the US.
    I'd pay that for that bike !

    Before the trip to US, I investigated buying a bike while I was there and then shipping it back.

    We were toying with riding Route 66.

    The best prices that I could find to my location were in the range of $900 - $1300
