Hopefully it will end up in the hands of someone that will treat it right. If it sells at that price it most likely go abroad.
Wow quite a nice little racket

I bought a pair of inop T500s a month ago from a friend for $400, currently doing a low budget-restoration on the '75 and using the much rougher '70 for parts. I guess I can't blaim the guys that make a living off of flipping these things, whereas I'm a person with genuine interest in seeing the bike run and on the road. My friend sold the bikes to me at a 'below market' price because he knew the motorcycles would be put back on the road and respected (ie not hacked to bits and covered in checkerboard stickers).
