It will be interesting to see what the star provenance adds to the price.

As a side note to this, when I was in the accident that sidelined my A10 between 1979 and 2003 I was on my way home from Malibu.

No estimations on value. I'd guess at $25K.

The avatar picture of me is when I lived in Palo Alto Calif in the seventies .

My bike was a triton    no one had heard of it  but I used to eat harley,s up on a road between redwood city and Palo alto called skyline .then stop at Alices restaurant before heading back down to home.

The crazy Limey they called me ....but no one beat me down that winding road ...

How did I learn to do it  ?  On the north circular road in the late sixties.

Perhaps Carl, will join the BSA Owner's Club of Sothern California,(www.bsaocsc.org) and then maybe we'd see him on our monthly rides.

No shame required. I had to look it up. In fact, I just Googled myself to be sure I'm still alive.

I eventually figured out PCH is Pacific Coast Highway. I've driven it from San Francisco to San Diego. Fantastic route. North to south is the correct direction as you drive on the sea side of the road.  *lol*
