Yes, going through the collection will keep you busy for awhile. Seeing that Honda step through in the photo takes me back to my youth. It was my first motorcycle that I got when I turned 13. My was only 55 cc. The one in the photo looks like a trail 90.

I don't know man. He has bequeathed a generous collection to someone that he thinks will appreciate it. You selling it to give him some cash might be insulting and a bummer for him.

 

Do what you think is right, but a dying man's wishes are just that. Do your best to ascertain what he really wants. Don't cheapen the offer.

Edit:

I went to a Korean war vet's funeral today. I used to bowl with him. Like within the last few months. He bequeathed me nothing, but I hope I brought some happiness to his life.

He is  NOT dying. He is just down sizing ,he can't do any more wrenching , he wants to go crabbing a fishing and wanted me to keep them or sale them. He wanted me to just take them .but I am just wanting to get him some money so he can do that . he said that would be great and to do so..  I am just doing what he asked me to do. just helping a good friend out . I will keep 2 or 3 of them.  He be coming home tomorrow and I will see him and talk more about them.   Sorry I should have I was said given some tractors.

Welcome back Jim.  Haven't seen you on here in a while. Good luck in your endeavors with this lot of equipment.  You know what most of it it is worth.  You should do fine earning $ for the gentleman.  Just takes time to get it all organized, described accurately, pictures taken & posted.  Then wait.  It will all sell if you chose.
