Ah so, the rare UJM /5 turn signal. Selling for close to MSRP.

I'm guessing bidder p***m fat-fingered his 13,000 bid and zero-feedback bidder 3***t found out about it and exposed the bid with his own bogus one.

I can see it now, trying to haggle with a seller.
"I'll give you $9000."
"Oh, no no no! Lookie here, this one sold for $130,100!"

On the plus side, with my three old BMWs, I now have a retirement "plan" (besides finding a rich widow, that is...)

Gee, that looks just like the 85-cent toggle switch that used to start up my DRZ.

The only reason it's so expensive is because it's one of those rare English language switches.

Hella "Flick Toggle switch 2762". Shown in the Hella Marine catalogue in brass but without the On/Off plate. Good luck trying to find it in North America and like all good marine switches won't be cheap.

Now I have to go look in the box'o'switches, some may be valuable...

Not Airhead, but BMW boxer

Item 360482155402

What a pile of rusty junk. Not even from the bike he claims. Embarrassing that he's from my state.

Yeah, I'm going to buy a rusty oil pump. That junk looks like it burned and then was dropped into salt water to extinguish the fire.

You might be onto something there, Anton. There's some freakishness going on in the driveshaft dept. there too.
