'87 KLR650 w/ 8,900 miles and just completely serviced at the dealer by previous owner, then traded in on a KTM.

I paid $1250 for it.

How's this.!980 XS650G $400. A bike I used to hate the looks of. The standreds where so much nicer. Get rid of the sissy bar and buck horn handle bars it's not to bad. One of the first cruisers from Japan, and probably one of the most sold.

Winner, right here.
I got a pair of XS850's one with title one without, for $400 off ebay.
I need to dig it out of mouth balls and clean the carbs. One down side on these. The Starters draw so many amps it pulls fire from the coils and makes it hard to start electrically. Its easier to kick start it.

I bought this last year for $500. It had 6k on the ticker and had been stored properly and it took about 20 minutes to get it running good enough to ride around for a hour. I used it all last year. It was only a 400 twin but it ran like a raped ape and made my buddy with a New Rocker C look like a ninny a few times.






I sold it for $1500 and bought a kz200 out of the same barn for $400. It has 10k on it and ran after a new battery and a carb kit.




I took $800 of the leftover money and bought this little 2008 Chinese Lifan LF110gy-3 ct70 replica and proceded to slap a $300 140cc engine into it. I really like this little bike and I ride the living crap out of it..

Bought for $1500. Hit it with a garden hose a few times and it looked like this.





Cleaned it up and got it running, now:
