Yeah too bad on the shipping. That would look great in my garage. Hopefully someone "local" will pick it up.

Someone got it for $39.

I guarantee you had they offered shipping, that would have been a higher amount!

              They stole it, let's see if it pops up on Ebay at a vastly inflated price

 I know that sign is close to the correct time period as the bikes but was it used actually by dealerships to sell motorcycles?

Nope, it was a "Tire" sign, but it's possible one would have seen it in a shop that sold both the bikes & tires.

Below is the sign I'd like to get my hands on....

Wow now that is a sign!  popcorn I never had seen a lighted motorcycle specific bridgestone sign before. I guess I thought the dealerships only used steel signs. I happened to pick up a modern Bridgestone sign the other day, simply to hang over my bike in our barn even though it's not period correct ::)

Here's a vintage "homemade" lighted sign on eBay that some dealer fashioned back in the day.... (at least I think it's homemade.  :o )

This isn't the same sign Brian, but the price is definitely inflated!

        Ran when parked, good compression, just needs a battery................................................ Think of the hours of fun you could have getting those barrels off   :D ;D :D :'(  but hey it's got a chainguard and maybe a good right side cover ?   Is that left side muffler as bad as it looks - rotten ?

back in the day, i used to uncrate, set up and service more of those "little Honda's" at our local dealership than i care to remember.  i get it in terms of portable transportation, but since they were not what i rubbed my gums on when i started riding as a young lad, they don't do it for me.  i'd pay more for the GTR than the little Honda.  now on the other hand, i am a sucker for any 1965 Yamaha YG1-K Rotary Jet 80!  i have an unmolested rusty rider that i always gives me a thrill when i run an errand and then i have this cute little over-restored guy done in Honda Candy Tone Ruby Red.  I did another in 2005 finished in Candy Tone Blue-Green and foolishly sold it to a fellow in Michigan who showed it in 2007 at the VJMC annual national meet.  Shouldn't have sold it, dammit, so i had to restore another because i thought i wanted a red one like mine when i was a kid' then i got seller's remorse and wish i had a blue-green one!
