Maybe a BaT bargain?
« on: June 11, 2021, 07:42:25 AM »
I love the look of this mongrel Matchless. I have no need for it and parts sourcing would be a pain, but it is just divine:

Suck big time.  Take them off.  Put some other ones on and use those on a hack.

Hot damn!  Sure would be nice to see that at the Meltdown.  I've never given a flip for any BaT auction until this one.  Good luck, Chad.

well, I doubt that is gonna happen, this thing will probably fetch +10k and that's not for me! I probably messed up from the first bid, I assumed BAT would auto bid up to your max like ebay, so I entered my max bid pretty much right off the gate and quadrupled the price of the bike in a blink.  It's already over 6k now so I'm going to wait till the end and see where it stands then.  I think the detailed build videos and the obvious care and expertise that went into it are going to push the price way, way up.
