Very nice, and a great reason to get it. The Honda S90 was one of my first bikes.

Mine had chrome fenders. It would do 75 MPH with my chin on the tank, but I only weighed 110 then

2003 KLR 650 for $500

Been sitting for about a year. new battery, rebuilt carb, new petcock, a few other bits here and there, got her running like a well oiled sewing machine in a couple weeks.
This video was the first time I pushed the magic button and it started. Using the blue funnel for a fuel supply.
It came with all the parts not shown, seat, side covers, IMS tank, etc.

Gotta love a $500 KLR. I found one a few years back, also sitting for a year. Fun bike but never the same after it was stolen and recovered. Enjoy it!

Thanks,
Our son is dealing with the same crap right now, he put a baja kit on a CRF230 and plated it, some asshat swiped it, it was recovered, but needs a lot of work

I doubt it'll top out that well with me on it.

My Honda red book says late S90s had chrome fenders and optional candy paint.

'84 V65 Magna/VF1100c

Garage find..."get it out, it's siezed". What's a V65? A 650 Japanese chopper wanna be? Google...1100cc V4, fastest production land vehicle for several years! OK...how about two loads of fire wood? Took a while to get her going but boy does she go! What a pleasure.[IMG][/IMG]

The Jardines live here. They may have a 4 into one laying around. Powder coat black and...wahoo!

So... Based on your location, surely you've blasted up the Beartooth and Chief Joseph hwy's a time or thirty on that bike. FUN!

Friend of mine picked up 2 separate v65 barn finds and had me fix 'em for him. Still can't believe it would hoik the front wheel of the ground in second gear without any hesitation.

I guess I belong on this forum! being a college student I have no $ but still want bikes haha.

My first bike ever I got for $300 a 1977 XS400 that had not run in 3 years.


Here is how it sits today, went for a caf tracker look. Not a ADV bike but a lot of fun for cheap

And Just got this new bike a few weeks ago. 1973 SL350 for $200 with title, It had sat for 10 years not running. Only 6k miles on it. Already got it running and the new brakes come this week so I would be able to ride it on the road by the end of the week! Then all it will need it new paint all over!

The SL350 will be my ADV bike. Going to fit some panniers on it and re gear it for the highway! Im hoping yall will see a lot of it in the coming months!

Nice score on that SL-350, I bet you could sell it for several times what you paid for it.
