I saw that the other day on CL. I'd poach it if it were a TT500.

bikeridermark or bikeneil are both down that way - maybe one of them already bought it, er. I mean maybe one of them can help you check into it.

Later,

I'm just over an hour away. As solace mentioned, bikeridermark and bikeneil are probably closest, I'd ping them and see if they would be able to go have a look.

So I read through the TT350 thread (a bit disappointing after my experience in the EPIC XR650L thread). Looks like this bike might be more work than I am capable of to get it road worthy/legal.

Anyone have any first hand experience or insight on this bike?

While looking through Netflix I came across "One Week", which is a halfway decent motorcycle movie. I recommend it.

I caught that a while back, good movie. Even tho the Canucks sell milk in bags, they're ok in my book.

What all needs done to it? Essentially I cant see it being much more work than GCMK's ride. Unless it has some sort of dark offload to on road exorcism that needs to be performed to it.

weeeellll, typically any machine I acquire usually needs said procedure ...I usually run the first 3 oil changes with anointing oil, and fill the cooling system with holy water.

If it's just basic lighting and such I'm good...these are (if I understand properly) a 6v system??found a brochure stating 12V headlight

We'll see what the seller says in response to the 2 emails via C-list.
