Here For Your Expertise!

Hey guys, my name's Mark, out of Cedar Rapids, IA.

I signed up because I've got a buddy who used to own a Honda/Yamaha Motorcycle Dealership until about 2007. When he sold it, he ended up with a shed full of deadstock parts and dent/scratch stuff.

So, now that he's getting older and looking to retire, I've taken up the hobby of trying to peddle the stuff for him.

THAT'S WHERE YOU GUYS COME IN! I'm hoping some of you can lend me your expertise and give me a rough idea on some stuff. I.E. today I dug through some scratch and dent V-Star gas tanks with no model numbers or anything, and I can't sort out what they're for!

In exchange for your kindly help, if I find something that appeals to a board member, I'll sure cut you the best deal you're gonna find on it! I've got a bunch of low end stuff like Star Motorcycle and V-Star iron-on patches, Star Bike keychains, even Star Bike Christmas Ornaments I'll give out for the cost of shipping. I'm not here to freeload!
