Beautiful bike. HATED the way it handled. Sold it a few months later...

yeah these things have a weird super heavy front feel, its strange....

Two days ago, and rode it 130 miles home. Bought it from the original owner, and he bought it new in '84. I loved these bikes when they came out, but didn't have the scratch for one. I settled for a FT500 Ascot instead.

Much nicer without the silly plastic windscreen that blows air up my helmet and opens my faceshield.

this was my first streetbike ever and I loved it!! Got it for $1000 in similar nick and Sold it at 17 for an FZR600 and will always miss that thing....

2001 zrx1200

picked this up last feb for $1000 even.
Owner said the trans was shot and wouldn't shift outa first.

It turns out the only problem was the shifter was seized on it's pivot.

It took me about an hour to get it freed up and workng perfect.

Bike has 50k on it but still runs and drives perfect.
Came with a folder of dealer receigts for service work.

This is the cheapest bike I ever bought, and also the one I like the most. I wish I could still buy a new one like this. Bought her a few weeks ago for 900 euro's, or little over 1100 US $

no joke, paid $100 for this "non running" bike, got home called someone to help me unload it, and replaced a fuse, and it started right up, the guy that helped unload it gave me $500 for it. so about 30 minutes worth of driving and made $400 profit :)

nope, I hooked up someone with a good deal also, could have made more money on craigslist with it. Told him how much I paid for it, and didn't even tell him I would sale it. But he offered $500 so I took it.

Cheap CBR600F4

Picked this beautiful 1999 CBR600F4 for $1200 from it's 2nd owner who crashed it after 9 days of owning her he put about 400 miles under her. She barely has 12,000 miles and rides like a dream, very comfortable!
