I picked up some Krauser side cases, but I don't have any use for them so I registered hoping to find them a new home. I don't see a for sale section though... Is it not available to new members?

One of the Forum areas for

One of the Forum areas for members is entitled "Accessories for Sale". That would be where to list them.

Classifieds not visible to the public

Ira, the classified ad areas of the forum are only visible to paid club members. We allow people to register and use the public portion of the forum without joining the club, but reserve some parts of the forum for members only.

The logic behind this is that there are plenty of places to advertise items for sale: ebay, craigslist and especially, the Internet BMW Rider's Marketplace (www.ibmwr.org/market). By providing a members-only area, however, we ensure that items listed are presented by people who are really interested in vintage BMWs, and the same goes for those who respond to these ads. The ads also get listed in the quarterly magazine.

By excluding the general public, we hope to also exclude the typical scammers. It's a way we can differentiate the club from the greater internet, and add value to a club membership.

You can tell who is a club member on the forum. In the author block on the left side of every posting, those who are club members have their membership number listed. If it's grayed out, their membership has lapsed.

I knew about paid members

I knew about paid members only being able to see it, but didn't know how to tell if one was a paid member.

Thanks!

Ira
