Here is the story...friend of the family recently lost her father who was into bikes. Before her father past away he asked that his 1962 BSA Goldstar (yep, legend) be past to his grandson who just turned 18 but didnt put it down on paper (note that our friend and her kids lived with their grandfather and the bike was in her shed). 1 week ago our friends siblings dragged the bike out of the shed for it to be put into the 'family trust' with what sounded like little consultation with our friend. When I heard this I offered $2k for the bike unseen (it hasnt run in years and Ive never actually seen it) as I feared the grandson would never see it again and it was his grandfathers wishes that the bike pass to him. Initially I didnt tell the friend that this was my motivation, as having lost loved ones in the past I know (dont we all) that their possessions mean significantly more to us as time goes by, particularly given this young bloke may not know how much this bike was a part of his grandfather - being bikers ourselves this obviously cannot be understated and is obvious to us. Now before you start...yes I KNOW its not my place as I am not a family member but FRACK !!!!....why is it so difficult for people to do the right thing ?!?!?!?. I ended up telling our friend what motivated me to want to buy the bike - so I could hold on to it for her son, fix it up and give it to him when he is older and wise enough to understand its significants. Not just as a classic bike but as his grandfathers wish for HIM to have it. So...I'm raging for this grandfather who cannot.... FRACK !!!! I'm not giving up yet though.....what would a 1962 BSA Goldstar go for with no reg, no roady and most likely a seized motor ?
