This guy has some interesting ideas about the origins of his parts AND their value!
Cheet. Are we looking at the same seat?

read the ad. first of all the price is WAAY off base, (check around) and what gets me is apparently he thinks this is for a 60-69 /2 bike
(it's a SWB 70-73 swingarm)

Surely the included final drive gasket makes it even more of a deal. Plug n play, man.

I think of something like this as Plug n Pray.

Some of the weasel-wording in the vicsparts ads is a bit draconian:

IOW, if it don't work, T.S.

I remember when you sold me jugs and slugs.
I don't remember you having a piss pot attitude about the transaction... like this guy.

Quote- YOU ARE LOOKING AT WHAT I THINK IS R50 ,R60 OR R69 CYLINDERS. NO BROKEN FINS. LOOK VERY THICK, MOST LIKLY STD BORE.. I HAVE OTHER EARLY BMW PARTS FROM THIS ENGINE SO SEE MY OTHER AUCTIONS. NO BUY IT NOW .. LOOK AT PICS , NO RESERVE , NO RETURNS. I WILL COMBINE SHIPPING WHEN POSSIBLE.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL NO RETURNS SO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BIDDING ON AND ASK QUESTIONS. I CAN'T SPEND MY MONEY TO SHIP PARTS ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR INSPECTION , THAT IS WHAT THE PICTURES ARE FOR SO LOOK AT THEM AND READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS !! IF YOU HAVE A "SHOW BIKE" DON'T BUY USED PARTS BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS AND NO RETURNS !! IF YOU ARE A WHINER OR A CRY BABY IN GENERAL, DO NOT BID. OVER SEAS BIDDERS ARE WELCOME BUT IF A ITEM COST OVER $150 IT MUST SHIP UPS OR YOU MUST HAVE A US ADDERSS. SHIPPING COST FOR OVER SEAS SHIPPING IS GETING VERY HIGH SO REMEMBER THIS WHEN BIDDING. IF IT IS A LARGE OR HEAVY ITEM IT WILL BE MORE EXPENSIVE. I AM NOT GOING TO ARGUE AND HAGGLE ABOUT SHIPPING COST

What scares the FUCK outta me is that some dumb-ass ACTUALLY bid over a grand on that mess. I don't care if it is a /2,
all it is at this stage of the game is a $100.00 lawn sculpture.( As Blaine said.)
And yes I DID call someone I don't know a "dumb-ass". If you're that guy and you take offense, wellllll......it is what it is.
