    I see a rear brake pedal on the right. Also shift on right and no pedal for anything on left? But what really gets me is there is no front brake? Is there something here I'm not seeing? There is a hand lever on the right handlebar but no brake for the cable to go too?

    It's a circle track race bike. That's how they're set up.

    The tires, numbers, bars and front cassette didn't give it away? Also, I probably would not pay that price for a raced bike.
    I have one in my basement, it's a bultaco bandido set up for short track. Definitely paid far less.

    ***1972 BMW R75/5, Showroom Condition*** - $5990 (Fort Payne Powersports)

    </FIGURE><SECTION id=postingbody>Fort Payne Powersports is a Yamaha Dealer located in Fort Payne, AL apprx 1 hr straight up I59 from Birmingham, AL.
    We offer several financing options and TRADE INS always welcome!!!

    We just took this unit in on trade from an older gentleman that wanted a motorcycle that he can ride his wife on a little more comfortably. When he brought it in the first thing I said was, "that thing belongs at Barbers!"

    This is a 1972 BMW R75/5 The bike comes with everything in the pictures. We currently have the touring tank on the bike, but it comes with the impossible to find original BMW Toaster Tank.
    The papers in the pictures are the bikes service records along with the owners manual.
    This thing runs as well as the new bikes sitting in my showroom. To say that this thing has been baby'ed would be a huge understatement.
    The bags are the original bags.
    The owner made a few improvements over the years. For example the original carbs that came on the R75 prior to 1973 were not very good so he replaced them with the mikunis. The ignition and starting system also had the updates done to them.

    You literally have to see this bike to truly appreciate it as the pictures do not begin to do it justice!!!

    If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us 256-997-9115. We are open everyday except Sunday.

    </FIGURE><SECTION id=postingbody>I have for sale a Red 1981 Kawasaki GPZ550 that is in good condition for a 30 year old bike. The bike was rebuilt and retuned by Kawasaki in 2001. I recently got a lot of work done on it and it is running great! Brand new starter, all 4 carbs have been rebuilt, new fork seals, new rear and front sprocket, new chain, and new battery. Also a new front brake lever (although no pictured). Only reason I am getting rid of it is for the money... I am a student and need some quick money to get me through the year. I am open to trades, but mostly looking for $1100 cash but is negotiable. Shoot me a text if you have any questions or want to see more pics. (757) 812 - 9 three 1 six. Thanks for looking!

    WOW, that is so tempting. An Old Airhead like me could go out with a really big bang in something like that. :freaky I might actually get to feel what real acceleration is for a moment before the end.

    </FIGURE><SECTION id=postingbody>2000 Kawasaki W650 with British style 650cc vertical twin simulating a 1960 AJS Model 30. Had fond memories of riding my T120R Bonne in 1961 but wanted reliable commuting bike bike so I converted the W650. Parts to convert back to original style (see pics 4 and 5) included if you want to convert back. Tank has some flaking paint.

    Needs nothing. Ready to ride. Will go 3,000 miles without need to top up oil. 35,000 miles on clock.

    Two sets of extra tires, fork spring upgrade kit (never installed), replacement clutch discs (clutch is perfect...parts were gift), cruiser style windshield, 2 tank bags, rear cargo carrier with removable bag, brackets for mounting saddle bags or panniers and Scott chain oiler included. Shifts like butter, smooth (engine has counter rotating balancer). Electric start plus has kick starter (which I always use...looks cool).

    Comes with a lot of new parts
    Needs paint, or clear coat to keep that old look
    No title, but these are few and far between and it runs
    I've ridden in around the block, this is still a project but a lot of the hard to find parts were found and the charging system is newer, a lot has been replaced electrically.
