That was my 1st streetbike, no wait mine was a V45. That thing moved. I remember getting on it and the shaft drive would make it sort of jack up instead of squatting.

nice score!

This is what happens when you ask: Hey, did you ever finish that project ? and receive this answer: No, you want it ?
It was missing a bunch of parts but was a roller.

This is the bike after 6 months of getting parts from all over, including Japan.



This is the bike a year later, with about $1500 invested:

That is a good looking bike regardless the price.

Deal ?

1986 Honda Elite 250 , I bought this for my son for $275.00 , it had 1200 miles on it but every piece of the plastic body was destroyed .


I found a donor with a blown engine for $375.00 that had good body parts . Out of the 2 I made this .


A year and a half later I bought my son this .


After selling off all the extra parts from the Elite 250 project I had $900 invested in the finished project (2nd pic) . I tried to sell it for $1,400 but no takers in this economy . After a week of having it on Craigs , I decided to just part it out . I spent one day out in the garage tearing it down , the next day I ran a parts ad on Craigs and started putting items on Ebay . In less that 3 weeks I sold $2,000 worth of parts , plus I kept some of the hard to find pristine parts . About $400 worth . So far I've never lost money on any of my bikes or scooters . Wait , I lied . I bought my son a Honda Elite 80 for his first bike , I paid $1,350 for it and sold it for $1,300 after one years usage . Boy was I pissed .

You are going to have fun on that one! Looks like it is in great shape. Low miles?
