Cool Bob Jones Bike on eBay

Don't know if this bike is listed by one of our members, but this would be of interest to many of us:

Bob Jones

Has the markings of one of Bob's bikes. I have not seen it before in any pictures. But that does not necessarily discredit the fact that it may very well be one of them.

May contact Karla. She may be able to verify. Not a terrible asking price if nothing is wrong with it.

It sure looks like the real deal. Bob had Specials like that on his site.

Authentic

Its the real deal. Owner has a book full of documentation from Bob detailing everything he did step by step in great detail including pictures of each step during the build. Anyone near by welcome to inspect. Wheels are spinning here will be in KC for business Looks like a find. Just to see the book would be a treat.

I can tell you that the signature on the tank is the real deal.

For that price I'd expect it to be a little closer to stock.
Mirrors, volt meter, rear signals, master brake resevoir, set up for a windscreen and saddlebags (probably soft).
The pipes look to be a 4 to 1 jarhdine i think.

Normally i would agree but we're talking about Bob Jones...the High Priest of Temple Eleven...His bikes are highly sought after...
BTW somewhere in my folder of pics on my computer are some pics of a Bob Jones bike just like this one..so IMO this is the real deal...

It's lovely. As I recall, Bob built these with luggage. It appears to be missing.

Good catch Marty..brackets are there but no bags...that should detract something from the asking price..

Easily a $3600 bike though assuming its already running OK.

Nice find.
