It seemed to me to be overpriced at $600,000.
I currently have an offer in at more reasonable number-- $590,000. That would be a steal.
If I win the auction, I am going to re-list it on eBay for $1,000,000 ("Buy It Now" price) and direct Scientologists to the opportunity with descriptive copy that includes the words "PRICELESS!" and "INVESTMENT WHERE EVERYONE WINS!" and "SIT WHERE SOURCE HAS SAT!" and "ON THIS PLANET!"
I am also thinking I can ask far more if I call it a "limited edition" and put a special leather-bound seat on it.
Hell - maybe it was the bike Hubbard busted his ass on in North Africa - the Canary Islands, wasn't it? Broken arm and cracked ribs - extremely foul humour for months, never quite the same after that according to Kima Douglas...
It might BE priceless!
I knew the date ('74 crash vs '75 bike) issue was conflicted...but hey, it was worth a try!
Good to hear from you, Face!
Na...That was a BSA (IIRC) and before '75.
I think it was Hisself's BSA Goldstar but me ole memory is a bit fuzzy...It might have been the Harley--"Spirit of Canada"--that the Toronto Org Staff (ED at the time was Dave Richards) gave Hisself around '74 for the CommodeDoor's Birthday.:confused2:
Good to be heard from, LA SCN.
Glad you're still hangin' around!
Good catch! I kind of saw the description (Honda 650) and scrunched up my face and thought WTF?
Anyways, talking about vintage BSAs and various models--geez, the aesthetics
of what is considered "hot" sure has changed................
......changed for motorcycle models and model-models (yup that's Betty Page)
Good catch! I kind of saw the description (Honda 650) and scrunched up my face and thought WTF? Too lazy to check it out further but in the 70's I owned a 650 and it sure looked different. lol

Yup - I remember it well...Hubbard was hinting heavily to the crew that he wanted one of those for his birthday! And oh yeah - he liked the bike too.
Disclaimer - I was not there physically but was spiritually. At the Hollywood Palladium in September 1973(or 4) Making the World a Better Place event featuring Yvonne Jentzch, Diana and Quentin Hubbard, and a slew of CC celebs - Edward Bear, Airto, Amanda Ambrose, Mario Feninger and Bobby Lyon among others, Lyon spoke of his recent return from the flagship and Hubbard - I astral planed there of course.
