I would replace the apes with drag bars, and replace the forward controls with a nice, chromed set of mid-mounts. All in all, it is a beautiful bike

If if if I was to keep the bike, and actually ride it, I would probably put drag bars on it.

I would most likely make them a deal where I get a bike, they auction that one to pay for my bike, and the rest to charities.
The charities would be happy, the dealer would get to sell a bike, and I would have a bike that I would want.

I doubt that I would ever ride something like that, and I'm not one to have a bike to look at.

I agree with Anybike, I would take "a bike" (not that one). Talented painter, but I am not a BB fan so to me that paint would have to go before I would be seen on it.

Other then the paint there isn't much on that bike that's custom. It's all off the rack parts, and certainly nothing that would make it worth the $200,000 that the article claims it might be worth.

Ten years from now I bet the owner could sell it for maybe 10 grand, (adjusted from today's values.) Maybe more if he found a fan that was love struck over a ten year old sports tribute bike. :biggrin:

I believe they said a collectors value, as it sits new, unridden, meaning what Jay Leno might pay to have it in his garage.

I live in Ky and I'm a college basketball fan, I have no desire for a bb themed bike. The value of the bike might have topped 500k if it was signed by coach K.

You just reminded me: I've got a mini basketball signed by Coach K that he gave me when I was in Duke hospital. I think I still have it anyway.

Pretty, but it doesn't do anything for me. I'd sell it and put the money into the bikes that I have.
