Pretty sure he wasn't trying to sell it, as he just bought it for $200.

I have yet to pay more than $500 for a motorcycle.

Non running 95 yz125 just sold, great bike.


Non running 87 454ltd, free on craigslist, got it running for 200. No pics sadly.

Non running 83 cb550sc nighthawk, 200 bucks.


And finally a non running 92 fzr600, currently mid streetfighter, paid 300.

You'll dig that. Your load/unload will be a lot less "interesting" than out of the bed of your

New 08 Symba $1500

Dont beat me up too bad for posting this here. It is small but gets my 230 lbs up to 55 mph on the flats. It will get 100 mpg putting around too. 2010's are $2495.
I just bought this New 08 Symba. It had 8 miles on it and I picked it up for $1500 from a dealer thats quiting the business. It was a demo that was brought over for the introduction of the SYM Symba for the US. There are a few differences on this one that don't meet the DOT requirements like our 2010 Symba. There's no engine kill switch on the throttle control handle, there is an off and on switch for the headlight, and chrome turn signals without the long stalks on them. Sweet bike!!

I guess it's about time I toss in at least ONE of the many I've bought that qualify.

I picked up this Vision from a small independent bike shop. they couldn't get it running properly, and got tired of looking at it. It had BRAND NEW tires on it. I paid $ 200 for it. It came with some crash bars that I immediately pulled off, and sold on ebay for $ 100, shrinking my buy in to only $ 100.

The gas tank was rusted, so I did do a little fiberglass work to re-seal it.
The poor running turned out to be a missing flapper valve door in the airbox. I scored a replacement for $ 10.

Got this '74 CB450 (with 1,500 miles) last spring for 1K. Needed a bit of carb work but runs like a champ now!

you should of seen me, the seller and my wife load up a lowered hayabusa last december on a friday night@ 11 pm. 15 degrees out, six inches of ice and snow on the ground, and in a college apartment complex. then add dodging drunks, papa john and jimmy john delivery drivers.
gives me the ability to pick up more than one if i'm on a road trip. could really come in handy. i think new they retail for about $1500.00.

78 CB400a Hawk

This was sitting for the past 14 years. I bought it for $300. I spent about 100 hours getting all the goo (oil, break fluid, gas) out and cleaning it up. I had to replace most of the crome parts. Total i have about $700 into the bike. I actually wanted a 400F but could not find one in my area.

HELL of a bike for the price!! I used to want the newer one, with the fairing. Think they had duel discs on that one too.
