Well, I have decided to sell the motorcycles, from my last post:

"I've been riding for most of my adult life (and most of my teens) and a few years back I came into possession of a couple of classic's. One belonged to a dear friend and neighbor whose riding days were over due to a car accident and his bike sat in his garage. Since I rode (and was about the same age as his son) we bonded and would often talk about motorcycles on the tailgate of his truck after work. He sure loved his GL1100, and I loved to hear the stories of him ripping down the streets back in the day. Fast forward and one day I'm working on my deck, he comes over to talk about how its going... next morning at about 8AM, I get a panicked knock on my door- its his wife. He sadly passed away in his man-cave above his garage

His wife who is also a dear friend passed his beloved bike down to me, and I have been working on it here and there, I actually came across another one just like it by sheer coincidence and had started to put it all back together. But now, with 4 bikes in the garage (and the Goldwing's taking up most of it lol) I'm stuck... His wife has been loving the progress I made and it brings back memories for her. I even mounted a B52 coin on the tank since he flew on a B52 back in the day.

Its a tough call, I listed them on eBay last week but it didn't have positive results...I got a suspicious bidder and eBay cancelled. So now I sit here after cleaning them all up wondering what the heck I should do, keep them or say good bye. My wife thinks the latter, I'm so busy at work I can barely work on them, its too bad I couldn't turn wrenches with him. Rock meet hard place!"

You can see the listing on eBay, there is no reserve on them, hopefully I wont run into the same issues as before.

Please don't ask for any of the parts you see that is currently on eBay, I would love to give the parts out but its part of the auction and I want the winning bidder to be 100% satisfied. Thank you for the PMs though!
