Some trashed Karkomas for $150.... at worst I can get new ones from Hucky for $30 cheaper, probably even as low as $80 for a pair of good used ones. But, ya know.... patina.

I agree Bill, that /6 is a looker.

Gotta love the Harley trailer as a backdrop!

It would tell us what they are if you mentioned the model or size BMW these came off. If you want to measure any thing get a metric caliper. These are metric parts, made in Germany, which uses the metric standard.

Your price is waaay too high. Used market value is under $200 most times. A really clean or refurbished pair will go some what higher. You auction is only a clutter on the market place. It serves no purpose. Or do you think you can get this much money? If you sell these at half what you are starting at it is stealing.
I would really like to see a site that is independent of Ebay that would list the sellers doing such things and we could look up each seller and see what their past practices are. Is there such a thing? I don't have the computer where-with-all to start something like that. I'd like to give the Mega Corporation types like what Ebay has become something to worry about. If I was running Ebay I would not allow sellers like this to use the site.

He also has this..http://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-BMW-R50...sories&vxp=mtr

Isn't that a large tube swingarm from a much later rear disc model evidenced by the small tang to hold the brake clip?

I tried the original link - it's still there but the price has gone up a tad apparently.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-1981-R10...577d86&vxp=mtr

If this doesn't work use the link in post #1.

I like that there are no "hidden charges" from the seller.

Nah, looks like it's a rare correct listing for a SWB /5. The tabs you see is to mount the LH rear strut.

I mean, it's obviously a joke at this point. Bastard listings should be taken down, I seriously wonder why there isn't a system against it. It's just spam.
