     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.
