This is why auctions suck.

This bike was at an auction today. I thought head up thare not hearing from anyone around me that no one would know what it is or at least being able to get it cheap. Lol not at all the case. Bike started at 500 i jumped in at 750 almost sold it for 750 then 800 dollars and jumped all the eay to 1750 and i stoped bike sold to a guy for 1775 man not a good day for me. I drove a hour and 45 minutes just to look. I hope to bike at least gets a wash and good tires. Only one scratch on the front fender and looked like the auction people did it.

Rest assured, the bike did find a good home. I am the new owner of it. I have no plans to part it out. It is a now a part of my personal collection. So far, it is cleaning up beautifully. It has many baths in its future. The tires cleaned up nicely and the tubes are holding air.

Good to hear. Please share your progress. I know many of us would love to see her all prettied up again.

I find it interesting that the east coast guys were putting a $700-$800 price tag on this bike repeatedly on facebook... Someone was looking to buy this bike for $200-$300 to flip is for $700+.
Makes me want to move back east... Fordmike65: you got a good deal at $1775, with a speedometer. original front lens, to top it off! Keep me in mind if you ever want to part with it.

I did have interest in this beautiful Shelby and was ready to pay the "California Price" for her, but it didn't work out this time. Instead she's now in a local collector's hands where it looks like she'll be well cared for.

Tim- It was good to meet you today. We appreciate the tips you gave us. A guy we know from Chicago said it was on the Old Bikes group. I have yet to see it. I sent a request to join, but it is still pending. -Theresa

Whoops... sorry Fordmke65... I thought you were the new proud owner...

Reesathereas: you got a good deal at $1775, original front lens, nice original paint, , with a speedometer (stewart warner) to top it off! Keep me in mind if you ever want to part with it.

Great looking Shelby ... A little bar keepers friend on the rims - A light wipe down - new grease - pop a set of Johns US Royal Chain tires on her & she is back as a rider - appears to have a new lease on life with the new owner Reesatheresa - Congrats - well bought on this complete untouched original bicycle - Looks like she'll be RIDDEN not HIDDEN ... Ride Vintage - Frank
