 :(    Well that stinks. 
I like cilp-ons, clubman's and superbike bars depending on the bike.  And rear-sets.

Well that does suck, but... A frame with a swinger can be had and you can get it all painted up while you work on the mechanics of the rest... really not a low blow if you planned to pull it down anyway.

Yea I went ahead and got some frame shopping going. What do you guys think on this one?

The spokes on my rear wheel have also been pretty much shot.

Frame looks OK but it only has a bill of sale so you want to do some homework on getting it titled.

That frame is a great deal.. hope you can get title, I know bill of sale is all you need in many places and the older the better.

Not a single picture of the eBay frame shows whether it is straight or gay.

This thread feels like another jwilde adventure.

forgot to ship the clamp and bracket, it's coming.

Yea I noticed that DohcBikes. I requested additional photos of the frame that would show it's straight. I know it's a long shot, but it's worth a try. Unless someone else finds a frame that I can buy. Also, I have a 14-day return policy alongside the Money Back Guarantee. But I'll make sure I get more photos before I even consider buying. The thread will get better soon. No worries!
