I buy, fix, and sell bikes for a hobby. I wanted to sell this one in couple of months, but I like it too much. I hope my wife lets me keep it. I think that it is really original bike. Gas tank in the frame, oil tank in the swing arm, front brake, you name it. It is a unique bike. I like it.

Here's my $750 750...It's an 82 Magna V45. Runs great until you push it past 6k, then it kinda bogs down. It ought to get the job done until I can find a nice 750 Nighthawk this fall. Only in it for about $150 in parts (added Daytona bars, cheapie mirrors, grips, and an air filter).

1974 suzuki ts185l, 700 miles.hadn't run for 30 years. pulled the tank and carb. heres what the carb looked like.

all jets clear, replaced one o-ring. bought a new $12.00 battery, and it fired up forth kick, settled into a nice smooth idle. rigged up a test tank out of an old squeeze bottle and rode it up and down my street. solid, tight, smooth running. damn it cool. tank wouldn't clean up with vinegar and nuts and bolts attempt so its getting cleaned and coated now. talk about a ride on the "way back machine".
$500.00

Here's my entry.



1989 Ninja 250. I paid $450 for it as it hadn't run for over 2 years. A new battery, a few misc parts, and a tune-up and I've got about $900 total into it. It has 12,000 miles and runs great other than being really, really cold blooded. In 2 weeks when my son goes through his motorcycle safety course, it will be his. Should be the perfect bike for him to tear around and learn on.

Front brake problem (cable operated front master cylinder), carbs will need to be cleaned/rebuilt for sure (standard procedure isn't it?), sticking clutch plates, and who knows what else.

The longer I look at it, the more I like it, Veg-O-Matic wheels and all!

i like those too. pretty sweet.

My entry:

Skorpion Sport - 1 owner from new, 7k Km on the clock, FSH (okay, 2 stamps in the book). Last tax disc expired 06/00 so it's sat for 10 years....

Reckon it owes me about 500 which is, er, around $1000.

Mind you, that includes buying the trailer it's sat on, the towing hitch for the car (to tow the trailer) & 120 in petrol collecting. Doesn't include the weekend of our time or the nice dinner I had to buy my wife while we were away collecting it.

Next step is change all it's vital fluids, buy it a battery & see if it'll start without needing a complete carb strip - the previous owner thinks he drained the carb but he wasn't certain.

now in my garage. bought it yesterday at a classic crar retailer here in town. stopped by to see a friend who works there and his manager asked me if i was interested in a motorcycle trailer that had languished behind the shop for a year. it had been taken in on trade. he asked me how much i'd give him for it, they needed it gone. two hundred bucks later, i towed it home.
