I don't know guys. I just couldn't bring myself to selling any of my bikes. Watching someone else throwing a leg over and riding her away to who knows what. He'll prolly clean her seat with Armour-All for Christ Sake!! I plan to give mine away to family when they are ready or when my time comes.
Maybe (probably) I got it wrong, that these bikes really are just metal and plastic, foam, vinyl and rubber. By I know mine have souls too! A personality! To call a bike that you've taken apart down to the frame and lovingly rebuilt "just a machine" would be like calling your dog "just an animal". You wouldn't sell your dog just to make room for a newer, sleeker, more fasionable model, would you?
I feel your pain, Bass!

What?? SELL a bike??
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.
