I was wondering about a couple of ideas.
1) any thoughts on setting up a kind of agreement page so we don't bid against ourselves on ebay?
2) any thoughts on collectively buying junker 750s and parting them out at need? Sort of a vn750 parts insurance group?
I don't have any strong suggestions on how to set such things up or even know if this is practical. I do know there are a lot of us and that our bikes are no longer made. The ultimate goal of these kinds of things would to save money and keep us on the road longer. Has this sort of thing ever been tried?
I know some people have probably done this privately, i.e., they get a bike for something and part it out. It makes for something of a skewed market though, since not all the sellers are listing what they have at the same time. It'd be great if there was a vn750 parts/bikes graveyard out there which we could all dip into.
