Post-Crash Sale

Hi all you old's schoolers,

Well, I crashed the R90 on Monday. Here it is in face plant: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=733583

Progressive totaled the bike, but I've "bought it back." It needs a decent amount of work, so I think I'm going to go in a whole new direction with it and buy something else to ride while I tinker with it. So, I'm putting some of my parts collection up for sale here in order to help finance another ride (and the tinkering).

First up, a 37/11 final drive in great condition:





Next up is a braced swingarm (with driveshaft). There are a couple of paint chips here and there, but it's also in good condition.




Next up, a set of Bing 32mm carbs. They're a little dirty, but the bike ran well (enough) with them. I'm much more partial to the Mikunis I put on this summer.

(right carb)
(left carb)


(The keen eye will notice that that the right carb is missing the nut and bolt that holds the choke cable. I'll look about the garage for them.)

Next up, a San Jose billet top triple clamp (never used, brand new in the box they sent it in)


Next up a tune up kit for the Bings up there (includes one float needle).


Stuff, I don't have pictures for:
Original Krauser bags with chrome luggage racks (the good kind with the bottom brace).
Brake lever.
1 set of standard size piston rings.
Reynolds backrest.

Prices:
Final Drive: $425 (I bought the final drive and swingarm from bmweuro here, so he can vouch for their condition).
Swingarm/Driveshaft: $125
Bings: $100
Triple Clamp: $90
Bing Kit: $30
Chrome Luggage racks (pics forthcoming): $100
Krausers (pics forthcoming): $100
Brake lever, piston rings, if you need 'em, their yours, just send me a few bucks to drop them in the mail.

Buyer pays for shipping, please.

Thanks for looking guys. Can't wait to get started on the next phase of my beemer.

Edit: I think I'm in the ballpark for the prices, but if I'm not, please let me know. I don't wanna be greedy...

Gs-850 El cheapo motocicleta

Heres the deal, I have a running GS-850 with a clear title for the stupid low price of $400. It runs but not well. I have had the carbs off 4 times this week and it runs good for about 20 miles then starts acting like its flooding out. It was a pretty dependable rider up until a couple weeks ago.


Yep, I have checked the float levels, cleaned everything Blah,Blah,Blah. I just want this thing out of the garage so I can start another project. If it doesnt sell soon I will probably part it out or I might shoot holes in it with a .357. Every Suzuki I have ever owned has been possesed by the devil himself, Thank Jeebus I didnt buy that Wee-Strom.


********Sidecar has been removed and is NOT for sale ************


Bike is located in Dunlap, IL near Peoria. You will probably have to trailer it unless you are an expert at pushing a 600Lb bike long distances

He says the bike weights 600 lbs. I think that would be with the side car, wouldn't it?

Sure $10, 000 and its all yours. Or I might trade it for a 67 427 Corvette but it better be a numbers matching car or the deals off.


I was just guessing on the 600 Lb weight but it sure as hell feels that heavy when you are pushing it home.

I like your math. $400.00 bike plus $800.00 sidecar = $10,000.00. Do you need a business partner?
