The early C5 with the 'holy' forks has been bid up to $790 with 3 hours to go.

The condition explains it is missing a few bolts, call them screws. That may also apply to some bidders.

Then again, given the serial number and survivor condition, it’s not that crazy.  Kinda like a Unitron flashlight.  ;). Not my money though.

It is definitely a rare one and I was very tempted. I thought it would tap out at $1000. Well, someone got a real collector's item! V/R Terry

If you missed out on the $1450 C-5, have a look at this one in the classifieds.

 

Sounds like some repainting has taken place, but if you can live with that you'll save more than a grand! wink.gif
