see, it's not the engine that is so bad, but the hours needed to do it right is where you rack up the dollars.
Sadly, that's too true. I swapped out the engine in my Civic last year. $500 at the scrapyard for the used engine, another $500 for new parts that made sense to replace during the swap, and probably thirty hours shop time. (It's a good thing I don't calculate shop time at my legal fee rates!)

I recall Osprey's MR2 being a great-running little car when I drove it around Boulder one day last year, though I suppose a tired engine wouldn't have been so obvious around town. I have nothing but pleasant memories of the car!

You know, it could be just bad rings or something easy.

Women's small Triumph adventure jacket

Another of Uzume's jackets up for sale. This one is as new as you can get without actually being new

She wore it maybe three times. It is a ladies Triumph textile jacket, touring length, with integrated back protector and combination fleece/gore tex removable liner.

It has adjustment straps at the waist and on the arms.

I believe the company that produces Rev 'it gear also makes gear for Triumph

$75 for a quick local sale.......

1988 k75s -Currently NOT for sale

Currently off the market - I know, I'm a tease....

Yet once again, I am selling my little sport touring machine. StmbtDave bought my last one and rode it around the country.

It something of a sickness. I absolutely love the K75. I have had four of them. I buy one, ride if for a few thousand miles of ear to ear grins, and then I park it. After six or eight months of minimal miles, I decide it can't just sit in my garage, so I sell it. Six months later I start to get the itch, and I start looking for another one. It's getting harder and harder to find good used examples, but I can usually find one locally over many months of looking. I buy it and the process repeats itself.

Was it not Einstein that said the definition of insanity is repeating the same process again and again but expecting different results....

Anyway, I have a 1988 K75S in very good condition, 24,8XX original miles. good rubber (less than 500 miles on the front, and the rear is probably 80%). Corbin Gunfighter seat with backrest. It has a small tear, maybe 1.5" that is currently covered by a piece of black duct tape. BMW pancake tank bag made for this model bike. The bike needs nothing to be ready to ride across the country. I have not changed the oil this spring, but the last change was less than 1K miles ago.


Going on CL for $2500, $2200 for an inmate........

Not in a rush to sell, but it's a shame for it to just sit here.

My Beloved 1998 Taco ExCab TRD, 312k miles and running great!



The Good:
TRD Package
Diff Lock
Power Everything
Sunroof
Rear Slider(replaced with plexi after I drove an ATV into it.)
Air Springs in Rear, great for leveling the load with a couple of bike in the bed.
Rancho Coilovers in Front
Red Top Battery
Everything works, runs and drive great.
No Rust

The not so good:
Tires are about done.
Probably due for a timing belt but don't really know for sure.
Front brake pads are thin.
Crack in windsheild.
Torn CV boot.
Used to haul bike and quads, bed shows its use and age, A few dents and dings.


Book value is like $6k-7k with the mileage. Asking $4k as is.
Call Adam 303-842-9543
I am driving a moving truck to ABQ tomorrow so you will need to come see it today or mid to late next week. After that it's going with me.
If the timing belt is original then it is way overdue- nice truck!

Fox Tracker Boots, size 7

As new, worn less than an hour, there's gotta be some woman or kid with smaller feet to fit these boots

Youth mountain bikes in great condition $50 each...

I have two Schwinn Frontier mountain bikes - small frame 24" tires, one boy's one girl's. They are a couple of years old, but in excellent condition. They did not get much use before my kids outgrew them. They have been hanging in the garage for the last year unused.

it has the diff lock, so it's a 3.4...

I had a 2000 Tacoma TRD, one of the best vehicles I've ever had.
Put a TRD blower on it at about 48k miles... woof.
