Even non club members......... I had a chap drop off his Rapide here the other day, I'd never heard of him before, about 80 year old and still quite active. He's had the bike since he was 18............

A very nice original Series C Black Shadow for AUS$160,000 plus 5%. So AUS$168,000. Deceased Estate. Would have been top sale of the auction except a Mercedes SL hit $165,000.
WOW, did it have racing history?
