I was going to bid $120 for it
but I had a few patients that I had to take care of...I' just have to order a new fiberglass unit from Beasley for $169


Do you want one too? I can get you their 800 number when I get home.

It was not me!
I try not to bid in the last hour or two of an auction. I sometimes miss items when they are first posted and do not see them untill the last day. I also try not to bid aginst people that I know. I have waited and even e-mailed before I bid sometimes.

Take a deep, cleansing breath and relax.

Now call Beasley Fiberglass at 1-800-745-5886. Tell them you're a gixxer.com member if you're not an AMA member...$169 for the tailpiece (maybe less)

Didn't you buy an 88 tail for that anyway? Black with a white panel?

Well you must rember that it is an auction as well. As e-bay acts as a proxie bidder just figure the MAX that you would pay and enter that if it goes over your max than you have no reason to complain except that you are not going to get the "deal" you wanted. If you are outbid at the last minute they still bid higher than your max bid.

I just wait 'til the last second and click my bid. Like I said above, I'd have bid $120 for the tail. That might not have got me the part but I wouldn't be pissing and moaning about it. Shit dude, Call Beasley and just buy a fucking new one that will work with that seat you have. You would have had to have painted the ebay one so get a new one and paint it.

Hey, I mistakenly bought some tail section pieces for an '86-'87 that I can't use. PM me if you're interested and maybe we'll work something out!

I may be pissed and I know how e-bay works, and it seems poeple are more pissed about my posting than me getting "poached" and further more I am not buying glass! which is my point! no glass! if I pick up a good tail..I will "give away" the glass tail that was on it plus the custom bolt on brackets...the bike is a labor of love. so JUST LET ME BE PISSED! (p.s. to all the people that e-mailed me, no, the seat it not for sale but I am still looking for an upper and mids and yes a limited tail!) thank you!

and this whole time i was under the impression that ebay works on the principle that the bidder who thinks they deserve the item the most gets it.
