Looks like a Sputnik not a Velorex.

Mine handles pretty well without the sway bar, although I've no doubt it is an improvement and on the road map for me as well

Looks like an inmate is selling his Versys/Ural hack on ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Kawas...#ht_500wt_1182

His thread is here.

Looks like a fair deal. The Versys is a very comfortable and capable bike.

Has car pusher and electric trim. Not sure if it has the steering mod, but guessing it does. Only 7800 miles. I have the name of the PO, but not permission to post it online. PM me if you want to know.

This one is only about 2 hours from me, so if anybody wants me to go look at it and get better pics, might be a good excuse for a ride!
This one just sold for $13,600. Is the market rebounding?

Hate to see that, but I understand where you are coming from. It's a good deal, GLWS.

Sorry to see it go, especially after I just bought a hack. I would have been interested in that.

It sold on eBay, but to a bidder with "0" feedback, so those deals always look a little flaky to me. It's been 10 days now and the seller has not left any feedback for the buyer so that usually indicates that the deal did not go through.

On the other hand, the pics and description are identical to the eBay auction, so it's very possible that the Craigslist ad is a fraud. Could be just some guy copied the pics from eBay figuring that he can get some old dude from Peoria to send him a $2500 downpayment before he vanishes into thin air. Note that the Craigslist ad is in New York City while the eBay auction was from a guy in Chicago.

Edit: just got a message from the seller. The Craigslist ad is indeed a scam listing. The bike was paid for in full though the buyer has not yet picked it up.
