Interesting. ATS couldn't sell them on eBay (reserves seemed to be way too high), and now here they are at Roller.

Welcome! Looks like you got a good deal.

(Edit: you may be able to get some maintenance history on that bus, by the way, by contacting ATS in Commerce City.)

It was a good day to bid. I almost bought both of them, one to fix, one to cannibalize, but the crusher shut down a few months ago and I wasn't sure what to do with the leftover hull...

The other buyer only wanted the motor and the rear tires. I've been in contact with him but my phone died last week. Here's hoping he'll reply so we can get back to wheelin and dealin...

When I was bus shopping I found lots of buses I'd have bid on had they not been so far away- in your area.
From Maryland on up they are plentiful and fairly cheap from what I saw.
NY and NJ seem to be the short bus capital of the US. LOL that made me chuckle.

Can't tolerate the bid thing because by the time the bidding is thru the amt is double what u wanted to pay? Lol. Just want it with price tag of actual price. You have a bus conversion?
