My brother isn't far away from Hales Corner, but it doesn't help when I see the link in November.

Steve, it sold for $1,500 at the estate sale. I talked to the owner of the auction company... (I begged him to let me bid over the phone because I live in Michigan and Idaho is 30 hours away  :'( ) Unfortunately he would not let me phone bid. The owner of the auction company told me this was his second time selling the bike at an estate auction.

so the story goes; It sold 10 years ago from the first estate auction for $300 in the same condition. I am assuming that was potentially the original owner who died... the gentleman who bought the bike 10 years ago for $300, recently died. Now someone in Idaho owns it.

Thanks for the follow up reply "birdup!"  i drooled over that bike for a couple days, hmmm.....  i can't seem to see the post with the link for that auction, so i can't see the town....  hmmmm......  the bike was 12+ hours drive from me , i could have gone up there, but i rationalized my way out of doing so.  i thought about calling the auction company and see if they had someone who would bid on the bike or if i could do it over the phone, but dismissed that idea as being farm boy i am and knowing how these small town auctions work, i tossed the idea and effectually got the idea out of my head.   as much as i think the GTR's are totally over the top cool, i decided i don't need a second one, but that bike looked about as pristine a survivor as one could find these days.  i already have a big project i am working on, so that is another way i talked myself out of it and the GTR i have has already given me pleasure.  in any event, assuming the typical tinkering to get a dead bike running was all that was required in the case of this GTR, somebody got a helluva deal for $1500!

No problem, Steve. Yea I was pretty bummed out over missing out on it, but I also already have a nice survivor GTR and shouldn't be too greedy haha. The dude who bought it for $1,500 posted about it on the Japanese Vintage Motorcycle Facebook Group. I added him as a friend so hopefully I'll be able to keep track of it.

that'd be cool if you can follow the bike; as far as i am concerned, any of these old lumps have a soul and are deserving of only the best care possible.  when i see a nice bike like that one, i always wonder what happened to it and can only home for the best.
