Default Proof you can't take it with you

Large collection of German optics and radios with a nice BMW R75, a couple of trailers and small artillery piece thrown in.

The price is ludicrous and the description laughable, a "original bike" made up from parts of 16 other bikes? Obviously the estate or sales agent has no idea what makes things original or valuable.

Interesting none the less.

The "authentic" bike also has modern wiring, bearings, seals and brake shoes...

I like how it's a mere $75 for the privilege of seeing photos of your potential half million USD purchase. Anyone here have to shell out cash just to see pics of their home in the real estate adverts prior to purchase?

Bike is described as "Authentic", which I assume does not necessarily mean original in vehicle restoration. Fair bit of Hype for what most of us do ourselves though.
Quite a half-hearted attempt at selling, I guess they are chasing deep pockets, no tyre kickers, time wasters or Riff Raff please. I won't mention the $5000 price discrepancy...
Not sure I have seen scale models used to sell like this before, makes you wonder why.
I was so impressed that Jay Leno had visited, makes it a bargain now.
