-paying down debt (doesn't really help the economy, but will when Doug has more disposable income to blow personally)
-spending it at wally world
-building hotels and employing more taxpayers

I love eprey.......eprey has deminished quite a bit since the massive rise of Amazon and a lot of the very, very large sellers are having more success as sellers on Amazon because of Amazon's re-seller support (a really good deal for the seller!).

I've been buying and selling on eprey since 2000 and have had a primarily positive experience; you just have to be careful.

I used to sell on eBay but with all the fees and trying to be ripped off a few times I quit. I buy still but refuse to sell any more.

So Doug, what's the status on this undertaking? All gone or are you whittling away at parting it out?

Still whittling away at this. I slowed down when winter hit. It's all profit now. I still have the frame, including both wheels and front fork, the engine(sans carburetor), and the speedo. I would like to find a buyer for the frame within driving distance so I don't have to ship it.

Thanks for asking.
