I had 3 bikes so far and I have paid 900 EUR for all of them... combined




#1
Kawasaki KZ400 four (250 EUR)





It was my first to ride on and first to learn how to fix and hack. Got it non running, connected a few wires together and squeezed 10000km out of it before it was to expensive to fix it.




That leads us to #2
Suzuki GS850 (200 EUR)





When I got it, it was in the original metallic blue. Put in the old battery from the KZ and rode it another year. It had a little drinking problem (1l of oil per 500km). Did one big trip on it, but mostly I used it as a commuter bike in Amsterdam, with fucked up starter motor and no kick starter. I sweated out every penny I saved on the deal push starting this 270kg bitch. I dropped it as a spare bike for 150 EUR when moving out of the Lowlands.




Current project #3
Honda FT500 (450 EUR)







It's my commuter/scrambler/touring bike. Something like 50-60 years ago, when there were no dirt bikes, no super bikes, no adventure bikes, there were just bikes that could do all of it.
