https://www.ebay.de/itm/264748097116. This rear bumper looks pretty sweet.. cheap too!

He's going to lose money with only 40eu for shipping....

Sold!
Since nobody else did, I bought it myself. Let's see whether this is real, with international shipping to taiwan for 40 bucks..
I saw a bit of red speckle in one pic, but the original inner coating was still visible and pretty new on all bumper parts. Spain is a good place to buy vintage metal. Like Arizona.
No dents that I could see.
The day is gonna come I am gonna be happy with another spare rear bumper.
Parking this battleship in the city.. zillions of scooters on my tail.. Something is gonna hit that bumper eventually.
But for now, let's see whether any of this is real. Seems too good of a deal.

Ha, but you know what that is, no? Too much work to preset all oversize parcel shipping prices for each potential country. In the end you need to call and ask first.

eeeeeeeeeeehhh
(foot in mouth) ???
The seller, still nice enough, is finding himself in a pickle, with couriers quoting anywhere from 550 to 860 to germany or taiwan. Guess he -and I- really didn't know. You did.
I had a center bar in mind, while everyone else was looking at an assembled bumper.
To be continued..

well, the seller took the bumpers apart for me, AND found a way to ship them to Taiwan for 120 euros.. (not 40, but also not 800 euros)

For quick deciders: rear windscreen seal for 70 AUD, and the AUD is as low as possible right now.

Well, it seems the man who wanted a NOS door handle is gone, so I'll post the link here.
He'll take 100 euros.

It's left, when looking from the front of the car.
Tell tale signs - level adjuster on top, fog light on right.
