heres a terryism for you-------------pharkkkkkk yyewwwwwwwwww

I have never deleted a thread I started, and I was hoping for some normal answers....so the thread will be deleted if you reply again...
all because I said this:

tell the owner he can set it on fire.....

....or if you really want it $50 and at that price you are doing him a favor.

Parts for the 350F are hard to come by and expensive, espically stock replacement parts. Unless you have one already and you are using this as a parts bike or you intend to part it out it isn't worth restoring (I don't care how much these bikes bring on ebay, you rarely ever make money restoring bikes for yourself).

There are enough running 350fs out there that if you really want one go buy that instead, but a good solid running one with cosmetic issues (if it is a project you are after).
----------------------------------------------------
I think it is a little disingenuous to ask about the value of ebay bikes without mentioning it is on ebay in the first place. Ebay has a tendency to do nutty things to bike and parts prices that is not always in line with what is actually going on in the hobby. Think of it as a mini-barrett jackson. Besides whether it is an auction or not is going to change how people respond to your question.

Fucking with people in a virtual realm is waaaaayyy too much fun. I can;t believe people actually get pissed off about what is written on the net. Dealing with uptight people on other baords really makes you appreciate what a home this place is.....

ps: I am such a prick.

Ya know, some people take life way too seriously. You were just telling it how it is.

That guy probably has three or four ebay logins so he can bid on his own stuff.

What a dork. Some people get wayyy too serious on these internet forums. I've quit posting/looking a couple aircooled VW forums because the internet drama gets far too freakin' serious. People need to step back and turn some wrenches or something before they freak out to somebody they've never met on a computer miles away. It's just words on a screen...

Opinion is an opinion, if he can't understand a little humor, screw him.

I just read the thread on the SOHC forum. I actually found it had some good discussion on the ebay overbidding phenomenon...that idea resonates with me very well given the few small experiences that I've had with bidding on that site. It's why I don't ever plan on going back...

anyway, it's too bad that guy took so much offense; you seemed to be giving sincere advice, but cyber-sarcasm can backfire...maybe he's ESL or Scandinavian or something :)

Joe,

No, I still haven't received the covers. When did you send them out?

LiLBull,

I've done well buying/selling parts and getting info on the Samba, but I can't stand to look at it any more. Too many experts ready to get in an internet battle about why you should or shouldn't do that, how installing this or that part will destroy your life, etc. Cal-look forum isn't much better.

he's was from OZ, you know how sensitive they are....plus they just want to fight all the time...

yeah I was surprised at how fast things got out of hand quick and that is why I thought it was funny. Very Funny. I have this mental picture in my head of some 50 year old fuming at his computer, so I thought I would share since nobody else could appreciate it like you guys.

personally I feel until you meet someone in real life you won't know whether you will like him or not, so why base your judgments on imaginary words on a screen. If the server crashed tomorrow and wiped out the entire board all he would have is his hate.

If you are having a heart attack over what someone wrote on the internet, you may need to rethink your priorities in life.....

I dont get the SOHC board.
There was a person who bought a tank from me and then posted about what a peice of crap he thought it was . I repeatedly offered him his money back and he never responded to me, instead he replied to others in the thread. Geeto posted in the thread in my favor (Thanks,prick!!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> ) and the "DG sold me a crap tank" then turned into a "Geeto is gay" thread. The buyer never reponded to me or my offers of return the damned thing for a refund. Instead he turned against Geeto and other members jumped in. The mods did nothing about the ugly nature and how far off the original topic the thread had gotten.

One thing that really gets my goat on the SOHC board is the way the mods/owners look the other way when "certain" members sell things in the improper section. The mods do nothing.

One person posted in the for sale section(a few months ago) that he had bought some extra shorty shocks and wanted to pass them on to forum members at a good price. The thread was deleted with in a day of being posted. I guess it looked like they were try to better their business by selling on the board.
But, when another member recently post that he bought some extra "things" because he liked them and wanted to pass them on to others on the board, its not deleted. I dont get it, the rules should be applied equally to all, but the favoritism there is excessive.

Yes, I do own a motorcycle shop and it pisses me off to no end that this goes on all the time there. Some people advertise there all the time and when I do the same as them it is either moved or deleted.

They dont like me much there either. If I have something to say, I say it. If you post BS, I'll one up you with even better BS that I can prove with facts (or what may appear to be facts).
