Shepherd Model 10 Eagle Bus for Sale

Got an Eagle for sale? Looking for an Eagle? How about parts? As long as it is Eagle or bus conversion related, feel free to post it here. This is a public forum.

Jim,

I hate to see you give the old girl up. I think you and I are the only two Metro buses that are out there running. I got poked at constantly at the Branson rally last October for running with the DOT bumpers. :roll: But I don't care. I don't have bumper envy. Bryon Pigg had a back blade in his shop for sale but no corners. I have always liked being able to climb on my bumper to wash my windshield.
I am still using the ECU you gave me for the Voith Tranny. I have 2 other spares, but neither will release the retarder action without shifting to neutral and back into gear, otherwise they work fine. I use the Voith retarder extensively when driving through the mountains. That tranny has worked flawlessly for me for 21 years.

Hope you sell fast. Good luck.

Thanks David.

Yes the Houston Metro Buses were a bit unique, but had great bones and seemed to be in good condition.

I used to catch flack because I put the corners on upside down, but I love it that way.

For those waiting on interior photos, I still have it on the to-do list, but have been herding a bunch of cats for the past few days and it will be hectic for another day or two. Don't give up on me :D :shock:

Well, we finally caught up with the activities that kept us from cleaning the bus up a bit and taking interior pictures and now it is minus 15 degrees and snowing a bit :(

Maybe another day or two.

We continue to have mixed emotions about selling the bus and would be fine with keeping and enjoying the bus, albeit at a lesser number of days.

I want to be careful how I say this, but my goal is to sell the bus to a person who will take it to the next level or enjoy it as is. I will avoid selling it to anyone that I think might get in over their head. If that sounds like interviewing for a job, it kind of is.

If I can find someone who fits the right profile, I would be willing to work with them on the price. Otherwise, we will seeing you on the road in our Eagle when the weather treats us nicer.

Well, we gave up on herding the cats and eked out a few minutes between snow storms to tidy up the bus a bit and take a few pictures.

Before I show the pictures I need to state the obvious -- I suck at woodwork. I love to weld and fabricate and have all the good equipment, but wood - not so much.

So, here are a few pictures:
