I've never regretted selling a bike, but there are plenty of bikes I regret not buying.

Don, Larry Cargill on the CX list has been doing concours quality work in restoring nice bikes mechanically as well as cosmetically and selling them at Mecums. Want to chat with him about the experience and see his threads over on the CX500 Forums? He can give you pointers and tips. He now is known by the Mecum Vegas show folks and they encourage him and really are able to give background and brag on his bikes and past bikes, recognizing the quality.  Mecum does take a good bit for selling there and sometimes the buyers are strong with great bidding and sometimes not...really varies...even in same multi day auction or same day...

Small update.... I have sold the 70 cb175 and the 71 cl175. sounds like a good start  right, buy I recently picked up a cb500 four and an 750A after I started this thread....no further ahead than when I started thinking  to thin the herd. Guess ya have to start somewhere. But jakec has made a very good point. Have to think a little harder about what this all means. Did I regret selling the 175's ? No, wasn't attached to them. I'm not attached to the 1100 wing project at all either, maybe I should sell that , and the 750a project I'm not attached to that maybe someone would be interested in that....I saw a couple of 550's on Craigslist this week.
   Nevermind, this still isn't working
A few Honda 500's, a few Honda 550's, a few Honda 650's, '72 cb 450, a couple 500/550/650 hybrids, and 2001 750. 
  550 Snowbike -Somebody had to do it.
  And other upcoming cb projects.cb750a gl1100.....
Bikes past: 66 s-90, Yamaha enduro, '72 cl-350 Scrambler, Cooper  enduro, Kawasaki  enduro, 550 snowbike.
