I think we discussed this pair previously and deduced that it wasn't much a deal at whatever the price was at the time. maybe it's a little different now. but I remember seeing pics of that super/sprint and thinking it was kind of janky.
Must have missed the earlier post. If it's still hanging around there's probably a good reason!

Greasy you and I looked at that and chatted by text. It has issues once you get looking.

The modifications people do to old bikes.

No ever knows the parts are still available, so let's just chop off the horn cast, and use this one!

$1000 for that Sprint does not seem bad at all, though.

I know we don't usually post parts in this thread, but I think this is substantial enough to warrant a mention.

https://scootnet2.net/index.php?do=showone&id=870

a hopped up small block P motor with a fresh rebuild that's got all the juicy bits you'd want anyway for 15. I that think pens out to a deal.

Surely a deal to be had here....

https://www.mecum.com/auctions/fountain-city-2022/lots/motorcycles/09/17/

I could drain some money here but my guess is prices will be absurd.

Can't imagine the prices those things will go for. Too rich for my blood! Want that 1947 Knucklehead or the 1946 45!

Yep, that's about 40 miles from my house. It's going to be a zoo those days I have a feeling.

There is a small frame on there I could be interested in. Not sure I want to pay $100 just to sign up. Would be different if money went towards a purchase.

Also a bodge or two.

Isn't that the place you have to buy a bidder # for like $250?

If you are going to bid online only, there is a $100 option now that wasn't there a month or so ago.

This one looks to be in good shape with a solid floor board.

Auctions are tricky things - sometimes you bid based on a picture and very little info. The trick is being able to walk away, just like when you go look at a scoot that looks good in the add, but full of bad when you get there. But paying to bid? I guess they are trying to filter out the wishers from the buyers. Still don't like it.

I looked at blue unit with windscreen and it looked solid underneath and in good physical shape from a cursory that looks interesting inspection. If it went cheap enough I'd buy it and I really don't want another scooter or motorcycle at this time.

None of them are going cheap or remotely affordable. Mecum is the haven for old guys with deep pockets and tons of boredom.

Unfortunate for those of us who would actually want one of them.

That's how the Copart auctions are. You gotta pay to play. Buy the time you win a $300 vehicle (car/truck/moto/scooter), you could have about another $400+ in hidden auction fees. And I'm not exaggerating on that figure. That's how auction houses make their $,$$$,$$$.

So let's take a poll here on the forum of how soon a new member will show up asking how to start a scooter that they just bought at a Mecum auction.

some interesting stuff, some hot garbage. on the scooters no real cream puffs, but some stuff that would make good survivors. but everything there needs more than a little work.

they'll all go for two or three times market and that shiny nammer will take the top spot.

did anybody check out the go carts? gah... I want a 1/4 midget so bad...

Beat me to sharing that. I gotta say it is pretty rough... but given the scarcity of et3s in the US I reckon its probably not an absurd price.

It runs and rides supposedly, but so did mine until I discovered the engine had been flogged to death and the cases were cracked. And mine wasn't visibly beat to hell like this one - I'd be nervous how much of this one is usable
