The Trade

For those that don't know me, I have always wanted a late 60's to mid 70's Ford pickup. And also for those that don't know me, I have NO MONEY. Well this '76 F250 with a 460, 4" dual exhaust and stacks, chrome rims and wood bed came up for sale on TCU. He wanted $4500 in the local CL and listed in for $3800 on the board. I offered a trade of my '95 Sportster and he agreed. I went to just inside NJ on Tuesday and met him to do the trade. I hauled the bike down on a friends car trailer but the F250 wouldn't fit on the trailer so I loaded the Durango and hauled back with the new truck. It drove great and you wouldn't even know (except the gas mileage) that the trailer and truck was behind me. It needs some work like a windshield and two of the rear tires are the major things and battery cables, electric brake, interior lights are some of the minor ones. Anyway I am happy to have my truck. And now I have to fix the charging issue on the XS so I can ride this summer.

Traded this, and yes I will miss it when warm weather comes.

For this!!!


  1. Thanks for the words of encouragement. You always have in the back of your head "did I do all right". Sure hated giving my Sporty up but it didn't owe me anything.
