Srx600

So who do I have to sleep with to find a SRX600? And for less that $3000!!!!
I'm getting some $$$ next month but NOT that much.
Cripes!! Heck Even a nice old school SR500 would be nice...

I've been trying to find one as well- to replace these that I sold-

The SRX600...



The SR500 in black...



And after I had it repainted...




Would like one like this...

SRX6/sr500\

Well,
the worst mistake I ever make was to sell the Yamaha SRX6 that I bought brand spanking new in 1986, as the salesman told me: everyone says they love them, but nobody is buying them!
I bought one and made the mistake of selling it in 1992?
I've been searching consistently. You can get an SR500 off Ebay for probably under $1K if you do a bit of searching and bargaining.
I've yet to see an SRX go for under $3K!

Although I'm quite sentimental about the Yamaha singles I have owned, all it took was two years of riding an SV650S to make me feel not so bad about getting rid of them...

I would consider $3k for a used SRX6 not unrealistic- perhaps about $1000 high? Then again what does a new bike go for these days...

Ccm???

I think we should all send e-mails to CCM and Borile to bring their cool thumpers to America and Canada!

They pop up around here every so often. I actually let a sweet one on Craigs List go not long ago, because I just didn't think I would ride it much. I think it was under $2500 too. You just have to look around a lot. Not going to be a great time of year to find one. Wait till Spring.

I saw one on craigslist the other day - don't remember which city but it may have been either Atlanta or Charlotte. Just popped up on the old radar screen because you don't see them that often.

CCMs have been and are very serriously cool machines. The new ones all have either a DRZ400, or DR650 motor in them so take all the hop up goodies they have for those motors. They also make a line of great Supermoto bikes as well.

I looked hard at buying one in '86 and ended up buying the new FZ600 which had the inline four, full fairing and racer boy replica looks, which was pretty new in '86.

Of course that bike would be worth a couple of bucks today the SRX sells for more than they were new. Of course had I bought one, I would have sold it a long time ago, so it wouldn't matter anyway.

I was new bike shopping in early '90 and ended up getting a Yamaha YX600 Radian (great little bike) instead of a Honda GB500. Traded the Radian in on my ST11 in '94. In '96 I bought a used GB.
Then I totaled it in July '97
