Should garner you quite a few WTF looks from bike geeks...

Well I am not so sure about that.... if you look close you will see duct tape holding the mirror on (both sides) bike was backed into parking lot tip over. Left out side for about a year so there is some oxidation and no service record. I will know more this weekend when I have a chance to pull the plastics.

Does look like a hell of a score.

I'd be riding that for commuting.

Some issues to fix!

This is one of the bolds that mounted the headlight. The left side was a normal 10 or 12mm. The right one you can mount a ship to the dock with. I think it's a 16mm bold.





Maybe i'll replace the bold but leaf the housing



The wiring looks like a mess but is fine by me.



The bulbs from the display looks a bit gone. I replaced them and now there is some light again.





The next job to do is to clean the carbs because she only runs on the choke.

1985 rm250

I traded a Honda CB650 for this and the guy gave me a grand which I used to go buy my son a new/used dirt bike.

Before:


Runs great. Rear shock is blown so, I sent it out to be rebuilt. I have about $400 into it at the moment. I needs a few other parts totalling another $200-$300 and it will be ready for the dirt.

Current state:

I don't think I've bought a single bike for more than $1500. /counts on fingers.... Yup, all were under $1500. All ran too, at some point. A few were too far gone to actually do anything with, but one of my favorites was the Goldwing w/ Hack.

Got my 1.25 W solar at HFreight. Works great thru the SAE or cig lighter plugs. Cig lighter has a flashing light when it's soaking up light and putting out power.
