I got a cancelled notification and assumed someone bought it directly. I think the black Mille is a beautiful bike, but no way I can go that high. I'd still have to deal with shipping and Cal DMV.
It was obviously tanking badly the 2nd time around on Ebay so he pulled it so as to not drag his webpage price down. This dealer has no knowledge of Guzzi's and or is just plain bone headed about pricing. He has pages of bikes listed but I have no knowledge if those bikes are =y over priced as the Mille.
If I remember correctly I paid $5200 or $5700 new for my Red 90 Mille in 1991. I bought it from Fran the Importer at Moto America in Lillington NC who had cash flow problems and was selling bikes dirt cheap that summer. He got his butt in a sling after and that's when the dealers took him on and shut down his retail side as he was killing them by underpricing Guzzi's.
