  3. LizzyM needs a longer mirror. $1 for a mirror is a bargain.

    Looks like the horn might be OK too. She doesn't need one so if she could sell that for $2 she'd be ahead.

  10. plus cost to transport said wreckage of a bike to a place to dump it.

    probably cheaper just to buy a mirror.

  16. Fairly certain I know who that used to belong to.
    One of the riders from DBW had his shed burn down and it had his WR and his kids bike in it.
    Very surprised they bothered to auction it. Wouldn't be worth the effort.

    Cost of transport? If it wasn't in too bad condition, I was hoping to ride it.

  19. That's just taking the minimalist street fighter look to the next level. Sure unsprung weight has increased, but think of the overall weight saving.
