I suspect the present (and past) owner would much rather the bike was damaged in a 'daft' riding mishap than consigned to a wall indefinitely. Gutting, certainly - disrespectful, totally the opposite.
Although ultimately, once someone's stumped up the cash, it's their own business how it's used, or not.

Yep. It would be rad to see it being ridden down Mammoth Kamikaze but I don't suspect that will happen!

For me the best thing that could happen to it would be it bought by a new school pro and then used to it's max in a modern race (as a bit of fun for the new owner and as a mark of respect to its previous) then consigned to the wall.

One last balls out ride and if it got wrecked, well that was what it was designed for after all!

One has to hope that is a genuine bid!
