On a completely different forum, I mentioned that I rode motorcycles...got a PM from someone basically saying "I used to ride, but after my last wreck I decided to quit. If you're interested in my bike that I wrecked, I'd maybe sell it to you once it's payed off." He then sent me another PM "I am including some pics of my wrecked bike. As for the frame, I think the sub-frame where the passenger sits is bent out of shape. I'm not a mechanic but I have no problem letting people inspect it. The engine still runs and I start it a couple times a week." Here are those pics: He then told me that he wrecked it when riding with a friend. He accidentally clipped his friend's rear tire after they passed a vehicle. He says that he doesn't know much about forks, but he doesn't think that they're in bad shape, and doesn't remember them leaking oil. Oh, and he has a title to it . He never named a price, and I'm honestly uncertain as to how much I should offer...or if it's something I should tackle. A bit about me: I don't really like sports bikes. I'm big on standards, UJMs, and light touring bikes like the Strom. I always feel extremely cramped when sitting on a bike with clipons, though I've never actually ridden one before. However, I love wrenching on things, so the damage to this bike doesn't seem very intimidating, especially after hearing that the forks are (most likely) good, and that the engine still runs. If I did buy this bike, I'm going to try and convert it into a street fighter...though the fairing actually doesn't look too bad (to my eyes) and it seems like I could just grind down the top to make it seem "decent." If I don't get used to the clipons after just one ride, I'm going to try to source a triple tree that'll work with the forks that will accommodate normal handlebars, or at least find a way to mount normal handlebars to the current triple. It'd either be an around town/backroad/hooligan bike, a track bike, or hell if I'm feeling really brave, maybe I'll convert it to a sports tourer (after putting on normal handlebars at least). My only riding experience now is about 15,000 miles on my Honda CX500 (only had it for a year though, so I'm a pretty high mileage rider) but I'm unsure of what a transition to something with such a large powerplant from my CX would be like. I'm also unsure of how to work on something so modern. I assume that it isn't quite as easy as working on an old carbureted V-twin, but I also assume that it isn't too hard to learn, especially since it's a Honda. So, thoughts? If the price is right, I'll snag the thing up...even if I hate it or I'm not willing to convert it to any of my grand ideas, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to change out the plastics and resell it.
