Enjoyed mine while I had it. Pretty decent performance for a UJM.

hey
this is somehow my new bike, a bmw f650 st. i got it from an american inmate who toured across europe on it. he stayed at our farm for a few days and liked it so much that he came back at the end of his trip, he did 30000km on this bike! its pretty beat up and he didn´t know what to do with it. so he gave it to me for letting him stay at our place and for the help repairing it when he was here the first time (wheel bearings, electric problems and so on)
i agreed on it, but if i ever sell the bike, or make any other profit of it, we will share it. problem is, the bike is registered in serbia, so getting it road legal in the EU is not easy. if i can get it registered, it will be used by friends and family, whoever needs a bike.





i made her naked to see if the frame is ok after this long trip with heavy luggage. looks good, engine runs great. so it needs a new battery, chain/sprockets, maybe break discs and pads and a lot of cleaning and cosmetic surgery.

cheers
josef

Nice F-model. Looks like it should clean up really nice.

you know bikes look always better in a picture then in real. its pretty beat up, fairing is cracked on several places, the side panel was melted by the exhaust and so on. but still good enough for a beginner bike for friends and family.

KLR650 for $1000 Alex

Here's my contribution. It's an '02 KLR650. I picked it up from a friend. It sat in his garage for a couple years. Cleaned the carb out and she's good as new. Even came with some soft saddle bags. This picture is after I swapped out front fairing for one from a KLR250. Its a pig but it's a blast to ride. I love reading about these deals but if I'm not careful, this is going to cause me to add to my collection. Just saw an '02 XR650L on craigslist for $1200 OBO that supposedly "needs rings". Put a call in so we'll see. Maybe a good tuneup and she'll run good as new too.

Picked this up last week, $350 and the guy delivered it. It was missing the windshield and right side cover, he dropped them off a couple days later! Carbs gummed up but I've got them cleaned up already. Just waiting on new bowl gaskets from my local dealer. This bike is as clean as they come and I'll have about $500 in it when I'm done. Can't wait to hit the road.

XJ's are great bikes,that one looks real tidy.
Got yourself a real bargain there.

1993 K1100RS with 75k on the clock - $500



Seller stopped riding it a couple of years ago when the clutch started slipping. Wants to get another bike now but fiance says only one bike at a time.

The lower half of the fairing and seat are included - done in smooth truck bed liner.

Said he's selling it for $500 so whoever buys it is sure they aren't getting ripped off.

Has funkified custom windscreen.

Comes with "soft" cases. One of the integral cases fell off and got busted up. He didn't want to pay BMW prices for parts so he took them to an upholstery shop and had the outers upholstered. 1/4" foam under black vinyl. I must say that whoever did it did a decent job.

I'll install a new clutch plate this week and give it a complete servicing. Should be rideable within a few days...

Clean, unbranded WA title. (Now in my possession.)

I pick it up with my trailer tomorrow morning.

Yeehaw....

That's a good deal.

Find somebody local who does ceramic coating. Will last much longer than paint.

Great find.

Couldn't believe it when I saw it on CL. Called the seller who said he'd gotten lots of calls since listing it last night and was showing it to somebody on Saturday. He said the first person to his door with the money got the bike.

I told him I'd come right over with cash. Hopped on my bike, hit the ATM and made an hour ride south.

Doing the clutch will be a major PITA but for $500 I really couldn't let this one slip by. Still kind of amazed that I got it for only $500.

Clutches aren't so bad once you get past the ~$300 at dealer for the plate. Replace the main seal while you're there, that might be the whole cause of the slippage and even if not, will be dried out and leaky after sitting. Maybe you can come down and do the same on my K12 once you practice up?.

I don't have pics, but I've built a couple of small bikes for several hundred dollars with parts off Ebay. Frame and all. Have a sweet XL185S now.

Check back with me on Monday. I"m dreading the cltuch job and I'll be cursing it this weekend when I do the clutch and servicing in 80+ weather. (That's HOT for us in Seattle.)

Once I've got it rideable though....

This post is useless without pictures of the upholstered bags.
