“Here is a 65 Triumph that needs restored. Great project. $2200. ask questions at 440 964 2109. Thanx”

I spoke to Fred, the old guy who owns this. He found it in a garage that he was demoing but has fallin’ on hard times and needs to sell for the money.

He said he has gotten many calls. One guy came to look at and said I wasn’t asking enough money for it.

“Did he buy it?” Me.

“No.” Fred.

“Uh, huh,” silent reply.

“I’ve got 4 or 5 people that are going to drive in over the weekend to look at. I think I’m going to raise the price to $2,700. Are you interested, let me get your name and number.”

“You’re going the wrong direction for me Fred. I think I’ll pass. Good luck selling it, I’m sure you will do well.”

“O-k. Thanks for calling.”

Oh, to be a guy named Fred who discovers collectible motorcycles in tear down.

Find it here on Craigslist.
