The end result of a $700 investment and lots of time and elbow grease.

Looks like you had a link to your public folder, not the image itself. I copied the image URL, pasted in my browser, right clicked on the image itself, chose copy URL, and pasted it in the add image option here... Hope that's not too confusing...

My $400 XS-650. It actually ran , Somewhat , when I bought it.




Spent several hundred dollars, Not counting beer to turn it into a $500 bike




I probably still have less than $1500 in the whole outfit

You did well. I had one the same, but with 45000 miles, and a taste for burning oil. I sold it for the same amount.

That looks like a guy I knows bike.His name is Patrick.I won't give a last name on an open forum.I believe him and a few of us have a great stock of GS500E parts.It's the only bike I have dealt with for 5 or 6 years.I have six and an 8x8 building stacked with spares.

Welcome to the internet!

Dropbox sucks, doesn't work right.

Try SmugMug if you like this site and want to support it.

Otherwise, there are plenty of free photo hosting sites out there.

91 k100-rs

At todays exchange rate I paid $1200

As you may have seen in the Eurojumble post, I bought a new bike while there yesterday, well it was delivered today, so my first chance to really get to see what I bought, and as you can see it is a stunner.
Sure there a couple of small items that will need sorting, Rear indicators, weeping master cylinder, being the most urgent at this time, it also smokes quite badly when it starts, but that soon dissapears when warm, I have heard this is quite common though, although I am not sure to what extent.

I intend to to get it booked into the garage though, and get them to give it the once over, just to be sure all is well. They can also fit a new seal set to the master cylinder while it is there.



















Also there was a surprise in the storage area, Tool kit, new disk lock, new cable lock, and the service pack.
