He already picked up the roller without the pipes. I tried to get him to take them, but he wouldn't.

Did he/you enjoy it? Only then will you have the answer you seek.

Thanks. I actually haven't had a single non spam reply about the bike. I just re-posted it today in the local cl. I'm thinking about putting it on ebay, but I've never sold a vehicle on there. I'm not sure what all red tape is involved with that. I still have the pipes if you want them. ;)

Thanks for the kind and generous offer on those pipes Radam but I  pride myself on thinking everything out thoroughly. There appears to be a design flaw in those pipes,in a hard rain the upward angle of the tails would fill with rain,kill the engine while in gear and send the bike spinning on the wet surface. Last thing I need to be thinking about is being lost in the rain in Juarez this coming Easter, browbeating my brain,trying to think of what would Brian Boitano do.

So,using a variation of that design but with attention to safety, I've decided I'm going to go with 4 foot turn-outs with "Keep Back" signs dangling from chains on the ends.

But again,thanks for the offer!
Mike

consult d.o.t. regulations. I believe at the very least you will need some red plastic hanging off those pipes or possibly an escort.

Oof, if only I had a few extra bucks lying around... or a job... or a rich wife... I'd buy that bike in a second. Ah well, back to my own 78 and the 3.4 million pieces it's currently in.

You had mentioned you had some parts for sale as well; is there a list up anywhere?

Thanks
Phil

Thanks for posting that up for me. I still have a lot of random engine parts that aren't listed on there, but just let me know what you need and I'll let you know if I have it.

Yeah, I was pretty bummed. I had 5 people send me messages about buying it if it didn't sell. Most of them were only offering 1400-1600, so we'll see what they're willing to pay.

$1600 isn't a bad price. I know you probably want more, but it's winter, and that can heavily effect the price you get.
