Even with the small pics...the word "stolen" comes to mind.
don't mess about. BUY THAT BIKE
IF it's even double the 2k # you're throwing around, buy it.
BUY BUY BUY IT IT IT.
Hell I'll give you 2k for it if you're worried you won't get your money back out of it.
what he said x25
This kind of thing makes my stomach hurt.
I'm sitting here at the other side of the pond and crying my heart out.
For 2k I would have taken that bike, no questions asked.
well he now wants 5700. If one of you guys are serious about buying it let me know and Ill get you in touch with him. He is not going to move on the price so if you want it be ready to pay 5700 and be ready to come to chicago to pick it up.
If its mechanically sound, $5700 is probably OK. Right near the go/no-go line....At a glance, mufflers are not original nor "correct", to my eye the fairing and bags are lame-o and could be sold off, but they would not bring much. The aft seat is not period, but perhaps useable, etc etc etc..
Unless you really want the project.....
its not my dream bike and I dont want to get into this project. Just letting you guys know its there if you want it
Snot on my face...
I thought the "5" was a dollar sign and I was ready to take Greyhound up and push the bike back barefoot if I had to.
My dear wonderful bpeckm- I owe you so much for clearing that up for me.
That is the worst thing about getting information about the bike from a friend or someone you know. You don't know what the price is for sure till you directly talk to the owner. First you get that warm fuzzy feeling that you are getting a deal of the life time. Then you talk to the owner, and because you show some interest, he jacks up the price and won't go a dime lower. It happened to me with number of bikes. At that point I just make an offer, leave my contact info and walk away. 20% of the time I get call back, a month later, and we seal the deal. Sometimes when they call back I've changed my mind as well. There is just so many variables playing in when you want to get a great deal. Anyway, great post.
Time to walk away.
But stay in touch with the seller. You may be able to deal with him when reality hits.
