    Re: 1 of 29 Original Kawasaki S1 for sale on EBay

    Checked the vin/engine numbers on the KZ1000R website. This bike is listed as being one of the original S1 bikes. Find of a lifetime for the owner!

    My guess is the reserve will be set astronomically high. I would imagine it would have done very well at a Mecum, with the highly inflated prices their auctions seem to be drawing...

    I have the reserve set at $85,000. But I'm just a dink with a DrBlackbird fetish.

    Not sure what that’s supposed to mean as I’m not a Shrinking Violet. I don’t care if someone volunteers for the blind and the homeless 5 days a week, if someone is a jerk, they’re a jerk

    Annnyway, this is not the first time the guy has jumped into a conversation to waste people’s time. He did it with a well- liked member here, some time back, who started a thread on a question about a one- off part and “look- at- me boi” jumped right in head first saying “you need to do x, y, & z” When confronted by the Thread Starter about whether he had data or was sure about it he responded “nah, why don’t you ask the guy who made the part” to which the Thread Starter, rightly so, flipped- out on him and essentially said “thanks for wasting my time and please go away” (he used more colorful language than that at the time) So yeah, I’m sick of his snarky playground comments that waste my time. Don’t know or care if he’s serious or just trolling. I also had an incident where Captain Obvious jumped in head first as well but I won’t get into it because I don’t have the time or the patience. I’m attending a large get- together on the REX at lunch.

    Harkens back to President Arash’s thread about contributing meaningful and relevant posts.

    It's 1:00 pm, central USA, and we're at $80,000 as the reserve is chased but not met.

    5 days 19 hours remaining in the auction.

    I think we're still awaiting the monied Japanese to enter the fray.

    Then you always have that bid sniper program where a bid is placed with < 5- 10 seconds to go. Not sure if that’s used anymore

    I have those exact same OURY grips on my bicycle. Very sticky with decent shock absorbsion. Great for the bicycle but not for a race bike.
