    As much as I would love to see the bike sold on here, I can definitely agree with a forum member a few comments above that the "best" route for the family and bike would be eBay.

    Honestly you will get the most money for it on eBay. Also, you won't have to "choose" a price or one single buyer and possibly hurt feelings of family members or slightly-impatient forum members in the process; the monster that is "eBay" will let that be chosen for you :)

    Best of luck - "amazing bike" is an understatement.

    Just noticed your signature block. '26 Indian >Shelby? Better be Westfield because Shelby never built any bikes for Indian. V/r Shawn

    Again, thank you everyone for your patience. I will be taking all the information I have and meeting with my family this week to decide what we will be doing. I will follow up next week.

    Hi everyone. I met with my family last week and we've decided to wait to do anything until after the holidays. Thank you everyone for your patience, enjoy the holidays and I'll be back early next year.

    This thread is still going on? Sheesh!

    If you decide to sell, and it must be shipped, please take the bike to a local bicycle shop and have them pack it professionally. I am sure the buyer will gladly pay for the service.

    Unless I had dealt with the LBS or knew someone with a positive personal experience I would find a fellow CABE member I trusted to ship it. Just because they are a bike shop doesn't mean they know how to ship a bike as I and other members here can attest to. V/r Shawn

    That works too.

    Alternatively, one can "play hookie" and fly in to get the bike, then rent a pickup or minivan to drive it home in. ASSURED no-damage.

    I highly recommend @frankster41 for the next care taker of your bike @justins9. He will be fair with you, cash, local no packing and shipping, no seller fees etc.

    If you do go ebay route shipping will be necessary to get top money.Local pick up never draws top money.Make sure you put a "reserve" on it also
