Estella has 37 NOS helmets all polished up and we are headed to a all-gear-head event on the 14th.  We are going to put the Deutschland Honda NC-19  NS-400-R in the auction with a reserve on it.  Hopefully a couple of people will get in a bidding battle over it with the knowledge it will help the family of the dead USAR Captain.  Hope it will at least meet the reserve.  It is a collectors/museum bike that with a little tender love and care would make someone a great piece, especially being it had the provenance of all owners and repairs from the time Deutschland Honda got it from Mother Honda to it sitting in my shop.

We went to the auction that was supposed to have motorcycle stuff.  It turned out to be mainly roundy round race stuff.  Estella had 42 helmets up on shelves the 4-H center had on one wall.  The NS-400R sat in front of the space.  

 

End of story is that the NS-400R did not go to the auction ring, Estella sold 30 helmets to a reseller who does auctions.  Not quite as much money as she wanted but that is 30 less to sell.  The remaining 12 are some slightly used or had scratches from being knocked around in storage.

 

There was less than 50 people at the event, the Covid-19 had everyone scared as we are.  We had to make a trip to Evansville, IN yesterday and both of us wore masks, I had a neck warmer over my mask, we both wore rubber gloves.  Some people looked at us like we were nuts.

 

We stopped at a Love's truck stop on the way home for a nature break.  There were several truckers wearing masks.  Chatted with one (6' body spacing) and he said that as an Owner/Operator where he is president and driver and the only employee, if he gets sick he could not make truck and trailer payments.

 

Everyone stay safe
