     The advice given is good. One thing that has not been addressed: You want to "invest" in a "classic". This way lies madness. ...
      The point is, this sucks as an investment.

I had not even considered the possibility he was speaking of a financial investment...that would be so ludicrous it never crossed my mind.  I thought it was totally in emotional terms.  (Which can still be a negative return...)

I remember turning the page of a Walneck's Classic Cycle Trader and gazing upon the RE ad showing this brand new black Bullet. I was hooked. This would be the same as someone looking for a very old car in a antique car trader mag, turns a page and eyes a brand new model T that was secretly still being produced in some foreign country. This would be jaw dropping and mind blowing to say the least. How can't you love the Classic Bullet!

I knew Buzz Walneck. I bought several bikes out of his garage when I lived in the Chicagoland area.
Cool guy.
Also loved browsing his publication.
Home of the ACE Fireball 535 Bullet,  and the Joe Mondello Signature cylinder head for the Bullet.

Found an 06 in Fallbrook with 4000 miles for $3500. Will see it tonight.
