Yes I agree that there are many differing opinions about parting out bikes. It is a necessary part of our hobby. I am not against that. I was just making a point of being deceived into thinking that the bike was going to a good home. I know, I know, I should not have put it up for auction if I felt so strongly about the bike. That is not what I am saying- It just saddens me when when parting out occurs like that. Anytime the whole is turned into parts (except in organ donation) it is sad. Like when I was 22 years old and I sold my 1961 Volvo P1800 coupe- serial #24! The next time I saw the car, the guy(idiot) had the roof cut off so he could have a convertible.

I know the Alan was not historically significant and not valuable. I was just sharing my feelings with the group. Some understood what I felt, others did with a caveat, and others did not. That is what makes this group so interesting!
