Hey Rusty, I really think that you need do relax and think things through.
If the rust issue is such a big problem, then why do not all bikes have this problem.
If it is such a Hugh problem, please post up some numbers with Model Year and VINs that show this as more than just a couple of under maintained bikes.
Or, please provide any official Honda documents on this issue.
Please don't give yourself so much credit for supplying me with any info that was put on the BAT board.
You can take credit for finally figuring out how to post there and then trying to bring up anything you could to sabotage the bike sale. Real smart. Let me know when you are going to sell your 400 mile jewel with the rusted out tank.
Just another learning experience for you is this;
In small production number anything (cars,bikes,paintings,etc) the value is hard to establish due to few sales.
So when there is a recognized sale (Auction) on one of these limited numbers whatever the sale price is helps determine market value.
Wonder how high this bike might have gone for if you did not throw a hand grenade into the last hours of the bidding.
Way to go. You have tarnished the Rune on a major auction site which will probably now hit any of us if we ever try to sell ours.
All of that to be a smarty pants that knows more than everybody.
As to you accusations that I am tied to the seller of this bike. Prove it.
It is only in your twisted mind that this exists.
If I was trying to pump the Bike, then why did I bring up the Forward Bars, which some believe to be a liability on the Rune.
Why did I bring up that the Bike did (Probably) not meet California emissions.
I was answering questions on these two issues asked by interested bidders after the owner failed to give the correct info.
I did express my opinion on the condition of the Bike, shame on me.
What I did do was support a seller that had a very nice Rune for sale and in doing so helped to promote the Rune and builds its market value for future sales.
Would not any other Rune owner do the same for a fellow owner?
I guess the answer is you would not for any of us Rune owners.
