4,000 miles, from the sellers description, is 100% running, riding, cosmetically beautiful. went back and forth on price, agreed on $1500.00. picking it up in two weeks.
picked the bike up last week. very nice cosmetically, only a little fade on the right side cover and a few scratches on the mufflers.
headlight in-op, front cylinder has a knock that seems to come and go. runs, rides, shifts, stops. ended up buying it for $1100.00.
is it just me or did yamaha design this bike as their take on a modernized black shadow (big v twin, hidden rear suspension, swingarm mounted rear fender, big ass headlight, etc)?
