    $1000 for a T500?? In '75 they were $999 brand new off the showroom floor.

    Well, for someone looking for one in original condition it is not unreasonable. Would take a serious want to spend that, though.

    > $1000 for a T500?? In '75 they were $999 brand new off the showroom floor.

    I understand the sentiment but it is really a meaningless comparison. Look how much a Vincent Black Shadow cost originally.

    Cheers

    And Z-1s like the one I bought new in 1975 for $2450 are selling for 3 or 4 times that now. Did you have a point ?

    $1000 in 2016 dollars $4,557.32 so not a bad price if it was near to me I would grab it.

    A grand for a decent T500? Would sell quick in New England. In Olde England would sell for 3 times that amount easy.

    The fuel tank on that CBX shows the obvious neglect of letting stale fuel linger too long in the tank:

    Water in the fuel settles to the lowest point, and the oxygen in water quickly attacks the bare metal below the fuel line. Yamaha Vision 500s also suffered many a similar bad fuel fate.

    If it weren't 5+ hours away I would find out by showing up with cash and a trailer. Probably a legit price. It's the 1WD model.

    And the seller is not even suggesting that you chop it or bob it!

    1954 Bsa b31

    fuel: gas
    transmission: manual

    Plucked this up recently. Up for sale is a rare old 1954 bsa b31. Brought over to America in the late 60s/70s from a man in the air force.

    The engine is seized as of now. The petrol tank will need to be replaced along with the wheels and muffler. it's a 500cc single. There are no scrapes or dents. The fenders, frame and front end are all in very restorable condition. All the gauges and lights are intact and not cracked. This bike is an excellent candidate for restoration. This bike is very original and unmolested and it'd be cool to see it go to someone who values that.

    Thanks for looking,
    Sam

    Your chance to get in on the "Twingle" craze. Be the first to chop/bob one.

    2001 Honda 600 F4i / Sell or Trade for Ninja 250 (must have title and run)

    This bike cranks but wont start.
    I was rebuilding it for the lot but want to get my wife a 250 instead. It has a tittle that says 1800 mils on the engine but i think it has a lot more. she needs a head gasket it leaks water i would recommend just slapping a new engine in it and start riding. this bike is perfect for parts to freshening up your stunt bike or start building a new 1.

    Good
    New wire harness (all sensors bypassed)
    Frame straight and no cracks/dents
    New 905 crash cage
    60+ tooth sprocket
    12 bar
    handbrake bracket
    dirt bars
    shorted stalk pipe
    forks don't leak
    new spark plugs
    homemade sub-cage

    Bad
    tires
    head gasket
    starter (needs 1 wire Soldered)
    chain has rust from rain
    tank is ugly as hell
    rear seat bracket broken
    sub-frame is beat up
    needs stunt levers



    $1100 firm or trade for a newer style ninja250 (must have title and run)

    "stunt rider training bike, only been down about 50 or so times. Routinely pegged the rev limiter with no problems, yet Steering head bearings POUNED into the races, may have some fork issues."

    Nice one lacking only original pipes and, evidently, a valid inspection sticker.
