    Need advice, what to do with 350X showgirl?

    Can't believe I'm thinking about this, but I am contemplating what to do with my showgirl 350X. I created it about 20 years ago, and it sits in my shed under cover, and no body sees it. Over the years I have taken it to car shows many times in the truck. But I have not done so in a few years. I want it to be seen, in a collection or in a Honda dealership maybe.
    I sometimes wonder if a dealer would trade a new bike for it? Then they could show it.
    I would sell it to someone with a legit ATC collection, or a motorsport museum of some sort.

    What do you guys think?,

    I have 2 go girls also, I would keep them. But I have lost the desire to ride over the last couple years. Its sad.

    Sorry to hear your contemplating letting your machines go. It's a good time to sell though as the demand is high. Lets see some pictures of these girls!

    I would NEVER do it,, but the sad thing is I could get alot more for it by breaking it apart and selling piece at a time. I had a NOS rear fender I sold a couple years ago for $2000
    I can only imagine what I would sell the fuel tank for.

    Its not about the money, I just would like it to be seen instead of sitting under a comforter.

    I have started to sell off SOME stuff. 100$ for 2 plastic frame caps I bought for 2.22$ each, 11 years ago??

    Sold 5 sets of those, wish I had a hundred of them!!

    600$ for a used gas tank?? 600$+ for a headlight?? 600$ for 1 of my 6 NOS 86 200X kickstarters??

    If guys are paying that much money, I cannot see it getting much higher. A whole ATC can be bought for a kicker and a headlight....

    As well as a few other parts that are bringing 500% - 1000% profit.

    Facebook has brought about another huge wave of new buyers, who knows how many years this will last as the hybrids become cheaper and better.

    I held this stuff for over 10 - 15years, the time is right for making some profit IMHO.

    Then stuff the profit in Crypto and triple your money in a few days if you know what to buy and sell...
    WHO IS Q?? WWG1WGA!!


    86 ATC200X Flatrack ( I may not be fast but this is one FAST 200X!!

    86 ATC350X Motocross, 86 ATC452X Flatrack!!
