Pretty much, all I did was wash it, wax it, changed the oil, checked the air filter, put in a new battery. It starts up just fine, runs very nicely. That parallel twin is a real sweet motor.

I am hoping to find one of those to customize next winter. Super reliable and nice styling.

I just found this at one of those places you donate vehicles to. It was donated by a 75 year old. The shop boss enjoyed riding it for a few months. Snagged it for $1150. It has a few sniggles but I think it will be a good one.

1988 BMW K100RS

And now it's up on Craigslist for $1100.... hope you at least Did something, like check the valve adjustments, clean the carbs, change the fork oil, etc... Bad MC Karma to just flip bikes without making them better. And no, changing the engine oil doesn't count.

Is making a profit a bad thing?

Nope, I do it all the time. But I believe in basic integrity. Make things BETTER than before you were there/touched it/owned it. One can do that and still turn profit, without issue.



Do you believe that Integrity is a bad thing?

Seems to me that mrfallover was more than ethical with his flip.

What's wrong with buying a cheap bike and making a profit? I've done it plenty of times.
