My $500 find. A friend of mine told me about this old guy that had an old honda in his basement. I checked it out and found this. I actually offered him $350 for it . He said he thought it was worth $500 ,I agreed and I put it in my truck. 4000 original Mi.

I bought this in pieces for $500. I had the dents taken out of the tank and bought new tires and a Crobin seat. I think I have $1300 in it. It's a 1985 Honda Sabre V65. Ungodly fast

I got simmilar V45 from a guy who was moving to Arizone for free. He did not have the title. The bike was at his parrents house and he just wanted it out. He said that it was his roomates who owed him some money for the rent and gave him the bike. I got the inspector to look for the guy and sent him certified letter. After 27 dollars and two weeks, I got the new title. I sold the thing for $1200 the next month. Too bad I didn't take any picts of it. Now I whish I kept it.

bought a 1983 yamaha 650 maxum shaft drive for $900. needs a little cosmetics but runs like a champ. got it for my kid, he wanted to spend about $6k for a bike. told him that how would he feel if he laid down a bike that cost $900 or how wpuld he fell if he drop one that cost $6k. he saw the point. I told him that after a year and two safety courses then I would go half's with him on a new bike.

Few years ago I bought this from a co-worker for $200.00



Had to have the carbs rebuilt, recoat the gas tank, recover the seat and new rubber.

Had maybe $1000 in it total.

Then I sold it

My friend bought it for $900 or $1000, cant remember. He decided he didnt like motorcycling/wrenching and gave it to me instead of going through the hassle of selling it. Figured that I would put it to better use than he did.
Had 5 or 6k on it when he gave it to me. Its been to every state on the east coast (excluding Rhode Island) and up North to James Bay.

I also have a 75 CB200T which I bought for $200 with under 3k on the clock, sold for $600 to another friend, then traded a kayak to get it back. Still under 4k on the clock. Awesome bike, need to get some pics up.

Goddam, that bike was THE SHIT back when I learned to ride! I salivated endlessly for one.

(no, I'm not interested in buying one, though! )

My GF and I picked up this sweet baby in earlier this summer, it's her first bike. It's a 1982 Yamaha 550 Vision it had 3,700 miles on it, the owner just put in a new battery, changed the oil and rebuilt the carb. It came with an extra clutch cable, shop manual, windshield, helmet[1982 vintage ], back rest, luggage rack, and a Samsonite top box. It runs great but still has the "vision stumble" no dents and hardly any corrosion. The only issue is a half dollar size hole in the right side muffler. We picked all of this up, a rare bike as well, for $900.

It's a fun little bike and has some sharp handling plus it's the only one on the block!

All of my last few bikes were less than 1500 Euros...

There was:

Suzuki GS1000e for 850e (one of the front brakelines was rubbed through due to an improvement (means a solid steel strut) made to the GS1000S-Fairing, that was butchered onto it)

Next there was a GPZ1100 for 1400e, still sitting in my shed, but I have overspent by a couple o' hundreds... (waiting in my shed to be revitalised again).

Then there is a XT500A, bought for 450e, plus a second engine 250e, plus a set of XT600 forks for 50e (actually the whole XT600 was just 70) a rack and two old ammo crates... I use this one as an everyday-ride.

Then there is my hack, which is a 1977 XS750 Triple, bought for 333e plus some odd 100 for carb-kit etc. Plus another 500e for a used Dnepr-Sidecar, plus some tubing... All in all still below the 1500-mark.

And then there is my flat-black XV1000, cost 1000e straight, plus 200 for a set of new tyres, plus 90 for some stainless brake-hose plus a new brake m/c and some small bits... still below 1500e as well.

Here are some pix:

The Hack:




The TR1 (XV1000):




The XT500 (in reverse chronological order, the last pic was when I bought it, the first pic was made last weekend, after fitting some stainless headers and pipe):





I admit, I am dedicated believer in riding cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeap
