    Those sandcast guys are nuts. This one didn't even have the harder to find original pipes.

    Maybe, but I sure wouldn't have paid that much for it.

    One of these sold in FL last year for close to $100,000 and a 1973 KZ900 for almost $40,000 . I think it was Barrett Jackson . There was a private collection with 40 bikes . Yes you are right that was a older pipe the original pipe has plates on the side can't miss it. I wrote on another tread that i found one of these outside of a barn in upper NJ and i was there for XS650 bike to buy from the guy and he didn't know anything about the bike and i got it cheap and made money on it. There were alot of rusted parts on it but i got big bucks for frame and title. There were alot sold and i bet there are many in salvage yards and nobody ever looks at the numbers. I always look at the numbers when i get a chance to get into bone yards that have bikes.

    $100,000! Damn! I wonder how much better the guy would have done with this one if it were restored (with the proper sandcast parts of course)?

    Well look at it this way . 5 years ago i started to clean out my Honda dealership because my partner was dieing and i wanted the property to go to his kids. Parts and bikes were mine and the shop was closed since 1981. So i had rows of shelves of parts in original bags and motors /bikes/and wrecks. I held the code 100 stuff till the end and started to sell all the parts on EBAY. I did sell alot of the bikes and parts in bulk but didn't offer the code 100 stuff out yet. I new it would be a big seller but i wanted all the Honda guys to get to see the first stuff then put out the goodies. I put a cam on in the bag went for $700.00 I had Honda factory bolt kits sold them for around $450.00 each kit Now i am not going to go into much detail about money because it was both on EBAY and by contacts but we will say just on EBAY i did over $60,000 and 40% of that was code 100 parts. I had to do a 4 way split with the money because i was taking care of my partner and his wife and kids but i had enought to open DADDYGCYCLES in 2007 in NY and keep it running until i got sick and medical bills / partner put me in bankrupcey. My point is if i had those parts today i could have squeezed $150,000 out of parts and bike. Guys want older bikes. 5 years ago i sold to a guy in CAL a CB750 1976 Automatic with 660 miles and never titled for $4500.00 CB750 are my first LOVE and i am planing to build a trike and a chop in the next two years . I kick myself in the ass everyday not to have kept some bikes.....
