    These pop up all the time. Why not stick them all in the same place??
    - I'm talking about individual threads linking to CL finds. :deal


    Maybe some guidelines.
    1. Location, location, location.
    2. Make, model + price.
    *3* I really would appreciate linking to hysterical CL posts. I don't think anything makes me laugh more than when someone can't spell ["helmut" gets me every time :poser], or thinks their yamaha xj650 is worth $3500 and tells you why.

    I saw an ad the other day where a hispanic gentleman (or so I assumed from some of the phonetic misspelling) claimed that he had a nice running sv650 with an oil lake.....:lol3

    Those last two are some of the worst looking bikes I've ever seen. They should be ashamed of themselves :lol3

    This is going to be my new favorite thread. :deal

    I went to duccutters.com and in reference to that bike shown, they said " If THE DEVIL RODE A BIKE, this would be his weapon of choice." :poser

    DOUCHE BAG!

    I'd suggest copying and pasting the ad into the message since a link is good for only so long with CL. Anyone reading this thread a month later will find only dead links and will miss the object of the joke. Or whatever...

    agreed. But I'm guessing CL will stop hosting the pics once the ad is gone so all we'll see is an 'x'. Time will tell....

    Well, the exact bike that I have been looking for has popped up right in my area, unfortunately, about a month too early. I have been scheming to sell my R100/7 to get a monoshock R65 and this one is in Madison, WI. The price looks right too.

    This is a 1986 model R65 with low miles and very equipped with new side cases, top travel bag, tank bag, clear fairing, custom Corbin seat, cruise control. Nice for touring and commuting! <TABLE summary="craigslist hosted images"><TBODY><TR><TD align=middle>[​IMG]</TD><TD align=middle>[​IMG]</TD></TR><TR><TD align=middle>[​IMG]</TD><TD align=middle></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    If anyone wants to snag this thing, it looks like a good buy. Now, if anyone wants to ride it for about 2 months and then sell it for a modest profit......:deal :lol3 (no, really.....do it.)

    Edit: Hes asking $2900, I thought it was in the ad text, but I reread and didnt see it.
