However, if it is financed through BMW, you can work with them and they will mail the title directly to you after receiving the payoff.

Someone bought this yesterday (previously posted $1200 nighthawk, was on the West side) and listed it today in Gresham for $1650:

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/mcy/4140585806.html

Usually I roll my eyes when I see people trying to get $2k+ for their chopped up cafe racer bikes, but this CB350F actually looks really well done (no shortcuts taken, rearsets, etc.), and the price seems totally reasonable:

http://portland.craigslist.org/clc/mcy/4140799000.html

Here's a Bandit 1200 for $1600 that has been painted. This is not a remarkable price or bike, but it looks to me like someone did the euro headlight conversion using legit euro parts, which is notable for the price. 21k is nothing for this motor. Cheap speed:

(And also, I'm really glad there are so many people willing to buy bikes without titles-in-hand: I will remember that. I'll also remember that the one time I bought a Subaru from a 55 year old woman who lived in Ladds that didn't have the title in hand, I almost wound up with an un-register-able $6k lawn ornament.)

Here's my purchase for the day.

A barn fresh 1972 Yamaha R5. Last registered 1988, purchased from second owner.



Going to be some work to restore, but I think the bodywork is all salvageable. Going to be shopping eBay for the chrome bits.

Any time you see a generic email address in an image, it is a scam.
when are you going to start a "WB's 'Craigslist Scam Artists' thread"?

seriously- it'd be a public service.

Nice looking Tiger, saw it in person a couple weeks ago. Sure like the color. Not sure about the price.

If you need a factory service manual, I no longer have a use for mine (6th edition printed in 77). I might even have the R5 owners manual somewhere if can dig it up.
