    Well I scan Craig's list a lot and if I come across something old I throw it here. Maybe someone
    is looking for some of these? Prices around here are a bit high though...

    mostly anything not japanese :)
    triumph, ducati, norton, bsa, old bmw, guzzi, etc...etc...
    and old HD & Indian stuff when I can find it
    the location hurts tho, altho I'd venture up north for a garage full of stuff :evil

    Thanks, Doug

    I don't think we see enough Pan Heads and Knuckles. Maybe even the occasional cheap Shovel. I know they're out there. I don't know why the prejudice against HD. Not all of these machines have been Chopped.

    But most of it is good junk, as opposed to the garden-variety junk we see on our south AL Craigslist. If an old Honda CB or CL shows up locally it always looks like someone's been using it as an anchor on their shrimp boat.

    They had a high/low on the jack shaft. I had one in the 80's. I hardly ever used the high gear except to shift up in high gear on the interstate.

    Wow. I am old and I didn't know that. That's actually kind of cool.

    Wait. A low range? So you could make it into a high-range road bike, and a low range trail bike? Anyone have Larryboy's phone number handy?

    I will go back to shutting my mouth and keeping my ignorance better hidden. :D

    Cheers

    I'm extremely tempted to pick this up, but can't really afford another project right now. Looks to be in decent shape, but dropped on the right side (headlight bucket tweaked, rear signal bent, dented tank).

    You should have included the link. 21 year old, low miles, bike for sale by non-rider. Happens all the time.
