Well, I converted 1500 USD to Euros and it comes at 1033 USD...so - here goes.
1991 Suzuki DR800. Bought for 850 Euro (1200 USD).
Actually it came close to 1500 after I replaced what needed replacement and modified what needed modification - tier 1. At arrival it missed collector box section of exhaust, so - put that back on and rode it for about 1000 km before winter disassembly for tier 1 mods.
Now it is about 2000 Euro, so - out of contest, but works like charm and looks like that
