Articulating Bus - $8500 (Denver)

Hello I am selling a retired transit bus which has low miles and is in excellent shape. The bus has been well maintained and is work ready . It will fit 60 passengers plus there's a potential for at least 10-20 more people in standing room. The bus would be a great charter bus or tour bus for Dispensaries or even a RV Conversion or a Unique Party Bus.
There are No Issues ! Mechanically Sound!

Asking $8,500
Priced to sell quickly

Articulating Bus

I went on a dispensary tour. Was supposed to be an articulated bus.
You know what they sent? An 80's chevy short bus with no ac. In July.

Cool bus, best of luck on the sale!

most every remanufactured gauge set has a date card placed on it.. and most often the original mileage is listed as t owhat was on the original gauge panel.. at least for the internationals... that 17k bus has the panel that this os most often done with... these panels were never serviced as individual pieces... even the dealer required full replacement.. as do the rebuilders of them.. the mylar circuit panel and its connectors were very much prone to failure.. as are the lamp-holders.. the lamp-holders were the only parts ever sold for them...

I cant remember the dates iof these panels.. 1990-1999 at least.. and they were on every 3800 and some of the non-bluebird FE and RE busses.. they were also used on most all of IHC straight trucks as well... 4700,3700, etc.. I dont know of anyone who re-set the odoemters to oroginal mileage.. they always started zero...

it was common t oreplace the gauge cluster when replacing an engine... as many times a gauge failiure is what lead to the engine failure or was partially responsilble.. ie temp gauge quit working and was never fixed (these panels were pricey to buy new from the dealer).... then later the engine blows so the gauges then got replaced with the engine and the odometer set to 0...

I realize its tough to do on CL but the best way to tell is take out the 2 retaining screrwes, and pop the cluster out... most often you;ll see a repair sticker with a date and pften the original miles on the top of the panel near the dip switches...

Hmmm....

Is a Florida dispensary tour the same as a Washington State dispensary tour?

It was in Denver. Had a great time to say the least. The three kings dab lounge was the BEST!

Whodathunkit?

Just a few years ago conversing about that sort of thing would have gotten us banned from most boards

IMHO: States rights, as detailed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, rightfully allow the individual States citizens to decide what is best for themselves.

Ok. Now back to the OP's discussion.

Also, apparently the engine sounds like a "pair of racing porches." I don't know about you, but I prefer my porch stationary. Seems like it would be hard to enjoy your cold beer if the porch was racing around.
The final bid was just over $2400. The reserve was not met.

I got my hand slapped (after being a 6 year member) at a ski boat forum for listing the states where can ibis was legalized. Sorry for the derail
