At gunpoint? Even if it is rougher than it looks that is still a good deal.

I guess mine would fit in here. I got an 81 SR500 for $1,500. It didn't have spark, but only had 2,037 miles on it. I'll have a whole lot more than $1,500 in it by the time I'm done though.



Here is the link to my build of it for anyone interested.

You can never go wrong with a SR500...

Nice project you there.

Also, you have the best ADV user name I've seen yet. Kudos, sir.

Some really cool bikes/deals in this thread. However, I'm always a bit suspicious when I hear about 30-40 years old bikes with only few K miles on them. Guys, you're aware that on a 5-digit odometer mileage jumps from 99,999 back to zero, right?

It's not that tough to tell by condition, and it is WAY more likely that a bike has gone less than 10k miles than it has more than 100k.

A 30-40 yr old bike that's gone over 100k would look like it.

I was suspicious of mine being 30 years old and only having 2k miles on it. Those suspicions went away as soon as I took the engine apart.

My twin sons bought what else, twin Ninja 250's. They use them extensively at college where bikes of all kinds park for free right in front of all of the academic buildings.
