    SFC on Ebay

    A beautifully restored 1974 SFC is selling on Ebay, with no bids and three hours to go. Starting price is $32,000 and the buy-it-now is $40,000. WHY NO BIDS? Another, pristine all-original 1974 SFC sold on Ebay in early May for $56,100, with 39 bids. The difference between a restored example and a completely original bike can't account for the lack of bids on one bike and a very high price for the other, can it? A not very impressive 1974 SFC Replica was recently bid up $15,700 without meeting the reserve. So what gives? I guess you can tell that I would love to own an SFC.

    Bike sold at the end of the auction-- for the starting price of $32,000. Apparently there was some questions about the engine number markings and the originality of the crankcase. I think the buyer got a steal. SFC is one of the most beautiful bikes ever made, IMHO.

    I love em but I don't think I would be willing to spend that much.
    Hell, I'm living in the past. I bought my last SF2 in 1998 for $2500. Yes, it was a runner.

    There was a SFC in Canada up for bid and the seller was looking to get over 50K for it. Like most of them the lineage was somewhat in question.

    Beautiful bike however.
    There was a 71 SF for sale in Los Angeles craigslist for 9K.
