    Why not classify Parts listings in the Flea Market?

    At least in the same manner we do the threads? Airheads, oil heads, vintage, etc???

    The Flea Market is maintained and managed through the home office and is completely seperate from the forum. I'm not sure if the parts for sale could be categorized when a listing is posted or not. The best folks to talk to would be the home office, probably Vince Winkel since he is the overseer of all the Media stuff including the Web Site (I think).

    They do that kind of classification for selling bikes...you would think it would be or should be the same with parts. I wonder how the tag gets on the for sale bikes...does the seller have to check a box for that? Maybe the input to the ads needs to have that added...

    Just checked...began to submit an ad to sell a bike, sure enough, there's the box to check. But for selling parts...nada. Seems that should be updated.

    Additionally, why not a vintage section, in the same manner? The furthest back it goes is "R-bikes Airhead."

    Ha! Now you say that...since you've acquired a few "Vintage" bikes!

    Great idea...the IBMWR site has parts listed by category.
