    Early and late 70's is where it's at. Post-81 stuff is mostly irrelevant and, while not worthless, not as desirable as the older stuff. Some of the big bore Suzukis and Hondas (480, 490 and 500s) gather some bucks when in mint, original condition. Otherwise, not really valuable. There is a guy in Deltona who wheels and deals in some nicer two-strokes.

    The 81 Honda's were troublesome, and then some. They had a tendency to become moving grenades as the water pump cover/propeller were made from steel. They tended to rust up and cause a lot of issues.

    That thing, to the right person, is maybe worth $2100. $3500 is bonkers. :eek1

    Same trick my buddy used.
    His wife wanted him to sell his 636. So he listed it for about $1500 more than it was worth.

    One of two things happens, you find someone more in love with it than you or you get to keep it.

    That may be a 1st year (US) 11RS-- notice it's missing the lower tupperware of the red '95 model listed above. That 'telelever' decal crap on the A-arm and the ABS decal on the fender suggests this may have been a debut demo bike :dunno Either that or the owner was decal-happy :lol3

    No cachet value there, regardless. The early trannys are not as robust as the later ones. That motor's a brick shithouse though.

    I'm a Friend of the Marque Swarmer, of course, but a prospective buyer of an upper-mileage oilhead needs to know what he/she's getting into.

    Records and receipts, rinse/wash/repeat :nod

    This reminds me of the Darth Vader helmet that Rick Moranis wore in Mel Brooks'comedy movie Space Balls.

    If I could figure how to post photos, I would post both images side by side for comparison. But here is the Craig's List link.

    That's a lot of shit for an R65 to haul around. Maybe add a hack for maximum impact?
