    This bike has been posted for a while. I think it would have sold already if there was room left.

    I say no. An original paint with Nice aluminum fenders pulled a whopping $621 on eBay a couple weeks ago.

    I expected Larkin's bike to do a lot better than that too. I think the market has been soft for Twins for some time now. Like the others said this one has some issues and it has been sitting a while with no buyers so I don't think you are going to make anything on a flip. If you are going to try and flip bikes you probably need to study the market so when you see something you know if there is meat on the bone or not. V/r Shawn
