well, 

I'm new here so I will introduce myself. I've been active in sport bikes for years, and have owned at least one of every japanese crotch rocket, and a few ducatis, but never a guzzi. i currrently have 6 bikes in the garage, and was scrolling through sale adds late and night and discovered this guy on a copart auction. as i am a complete and utter moron, i didn't read the terms and conditions. my "winning" bid of $650, turned into $1800 after auction fees, broker fees, and doc fees. the true kick in the gut came when the broker hit me with a $2200 shipping charge, making my $650 bike a $4121 purchase. of course this was all spelled out in the fine print, that i didn't read. i'm trying to make the best of it, as i am truly excited about the bike

I think this LeMans deserves a thread of its own.

I can split these posts off and start one for you, @cory464 . . .  :sun:

thank you very much, I'm getting past the financial hit and taking it as a steep learning curve about buying bikes online. in reality I am very excited about this bike. I have rescued numerous sport bikes, so the condition doesn't scare me. what really impresses me about guzzi ownership is the owners. So far the people I have met are very passionate about their bikes. I don't think there is any other brand with so many one owner bikes. Fortunately for me i have two fantastic guzzi dealers within a few hundred miles of me. i will post up more pictures and details when i get the bike home. thanks!!

Sorry to see but that bike looks really sick if not dead. Good luck, you’ll need it.

You should have seen mine when I got it.

$2200 shipping ? Yeow !

It does not make sense to charge that much. It feels like this dealership in Florida that charges $600 for... documentation....

Those 22 hundreds would have been nice to have to replace a few of the missing features though... but its a Guzzi, so it got good bones, all the rest seems to be cosmetics.

        Looks like the hard part is going to be getting that silly auction sticker off the tank!  Good luck with the resto:luigi:
