During his race, had a heart attack and passed away. For a "racer" probably no better way to go. RIP.
I don't remember him, but sure I saw him race back in the early 70's when I was a regular spectator at Boothill Speedway in Shreveport.

Re: Interesting

Anyone know if this rider is on here? Someone should tell him his price is too high by double.

Re: Interesting

He could probably get a base model C3 for the value of a TA. Maybe even a C4.
The bike is definitely low Mike's and looks to be in excellent condition. I could almost see a 10/10 or a 9/10 TA getting 6k with the right buyer.

Re: Interesting

While mine wasn't "show room" condition, it took several months to get $2200 for it. Not near the demand some people think

Re: Interesting

I've seen listings as high as 6 for pristine ones with luggage. I'd say my limit would be 5. I consider 3500 to be a fair price for a reasonable mileage good condition one.
I paid 1500 for my high mileage beat up TA. But it means I'm not afraid to take it to Barnwell.
