    Sorry it's been taking so long. We still haven't gotten together to figure out how much we're going to sell the bike for. I will let everyone know when we decide on a price. Thank you.

    What's to "work out"? Seller gives a number, buyer gives them money-done deal! V/r Shawn

    some simple advice.
    1 settle on a price
    2 pick who you want to sell it too, believe me, if you don't set a crazy price they'll pay what you ask. your main decision is where the bike goes from here. there are good new homes and bad new homes.
    3 no, I don't have a dog in this hunt, I don't want the bike, and I don't care who gets it. just stating the facts as I see them. don't let anyone pressure you. you pick the buyer, you're under no obligation to anyone.

    It's been awhile since I've posted so I just wanted to give everyone an update. I still haven't gotten together with other family members to discuss a price point. I've been trying to get us all together to settle on a price and let all of you know, but that seems easier said than done. I'll keep checking up on this, might even try and add new pictures if I get a chance!

    Since the family knows of the tremendous value of this bike, it will only get more difficult. I am not judging anyone, but greed could very well rear it's ugly head. I certainly wish you the best of luck. Of course, not many people have heirlooms that are this valuable. So if you keep it, I think we all should be able to understand AND RESPECT that.

    Why not just put it on EBay and let it bring what the open market says it's worth?
    There is obviously a lot of interest on it already. And you might be surprised what it brings.
    I am not a fan what so ever of FEEBay, but I also think it's a fair way to let it go.
    No arguing with family about a set price, no hard feelings and it brings top dollar from what the open market says it's worth.
    This would be one of those rare times that Ebay is probably the best way to go.
    There is more than 1 seller and if all people involved are not happy with the result, it could cause some nasty feeling and a nasty outcome.

    you truly never really know your family until money is involved.
