    1991 Bumblebee with under 10K miles for $7K

    [​IMG]


    ooooooo i want to spank it



    Also just found this listed, back on July 11:
    http://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/mcy/1837800917.html

    1975 R90/6 not running, but on 2nd engine, 1st blown engine included, $1500. Bike probably rested inside for 10 years.

    Few weeks later, its running and the price is now $2000, with a new battery and presumably some fresher gas.

    http://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/mcy/1901226577.html

    If the 1st engine's pistons arent coldwelded to the cylinders, its pretty good money there, if you like that sort of thing.

    I wish some deserving soul would buy this one:

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/mcy/1923848892.html

    The history and rarity of this bike make it well worth the asking price, as well as, the sidecar and frame are worth $1500.00 to $2000.00 easy. So, you really are getting the motorcycle at no cost, even though it does not run, a mechanically inclined person can have it going with a small amount of work.
    . This motorcycle has had some restoration done on it. The engine was refurbished prior to being shipped to this country. I had the wheels respoked and powder coated along with new tires. It has a new distributor cap, rear end bearings( its shaft driven)new wheel bearings(all 4 wheels) and a few more odds and ends. The bike is not currently running due to, no battery ,bad plugs and clutch cable adjustment . A little bit of tinkering and it will fire right up on first or second kick. The engine is strong and runs good, it has strong compression. I have some spare parts and original Russian tires I will give the buyer ,as well as, 2 books on the bikes and some Russian paper work on the bike. It is a 750cc motor with shaft drive. It is a well built machine, the frame is solid steel and the engine is a flathead side valve. PLEASE, serious inquires only. Buyer is responsible for shipping and delivery. 757-250-3241

    I first saw this bike on youtube, not sure what to think of it, but here it is for sale:



    http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/van/mcy/1939367561.html

    "1987 BMW R80 for $6500. The bike has had only three owners from new (including me), the original owner (an engineer) sold it to the builder (also an engineer and machinist) who built this as a experiment to see what he could do with metal, and the results show his skill. The builder found inspiration in many ways including renowned bike builder Shinya Kimura, creator of the Zero bikes and his own specialty creations, similar to the BMW in the minimalist, functional ideas and the bare metal finish. The builder spent a good long winter refining his design, building virtually everything on the bike including hand milling the headlight/tail light, the controls and handle bar, the seat and gas tank, the engine top case and the fender, along with many smaller elements.

    Since owning the bike I have put some detail work into it including an antique glass doorknob that is now the oil filler cap, hand turned aluminum foot pegs, and brand new enduro style tires (Avon distanza on rear and Pirelli scorpion up front) and lastly an antique cameo mounted on the side rear fender. The pics accurately depict the condition of the bike, there will be no surprises of fancy pictures not matching reality.

    The exhaust is stainless steel (also hand built) and sounds incredible here is a video of a start up-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOb_P77RcKo

    And here is a flyby-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88EKZ6_3Moo the bike has been dialed in since this video, no back fire popping now.

    The bike is insured and running strong, an amazing riding bike, (all spring/summer maintenance done). With mostly just aluminum left on it the bike picks up and goes quick and because it is BMW cruises on highways with ease and comfort. The seat is hard pan but the BMW mono shock suspension is capable of handling the bumps, no punishing smashing over cracks like a lot of hard pan seats. more pics available on request. thanks."

    Sometimes it's sooo hard to not call some of these idiots and attempt to explain to them that there is an extra digit in the price that doesn't belong there.
    Not to mention the bits that made Mike laugh!

    KLR 650 Tengai ready to go! - $1700 (Damascus)

    <HR>Date: 2010-09-20, 9:21PM EDT
    Reply to: sale-dnyau-1964787952@craigslist.org <SUP>[Errors when replying to ads?]</SUP>

    <HR>

    The same bike was made from 1987-2007, this one is a 1990 Tengai (KLR 650-B2), which was a city version. It means that the seat is a touch lower, it has the low "city style" front fender, the turn signals cancel when you push the button (don't have to slide it back to center), slightly softer suspension, and most of all, a two-piston front brake (not great but better than most KLRs). Has about 19,000 miles.

    The tank and side panels were replaced to make this a better campus ride for the U of Md and as a city commuter. Ironically, the bike never got dropped in the year and a half we've owned it. The custom tall windshield is actually effective, the turn signals are tucked in where they shouldn't get broken off if the bike falls, there are 10mm socket holes in the side panels for easier seat removal, a connector for a battery tender, etc. The body is obviously a repaint that came out pretty good. It's painted with engine paint, so it's somewhat gas-resistant. If you spill a bit at the pump, wipe it off right away and use some rubbing compound later - you won't strip the paint the way most enamels will.

    The bad:
    The countershaft leaks about three drops of oil whenever we park the bike, so we watch the oil level. A new bushing, seal, and o-ring are only $32 and the replacement is easy - we just never got around to it.
    The tank has a small dent in the right.

    The good:
    It's been taken care of and that shows!
    New clutch cable (Pretty sure that we also changed the throttle cable),
    Welded crashbars around the radiator as part of the bodywork,
    Pelican case toolbox under the license plate,
    Massively improved rear lighting, including 3 LED brake lights, & lit turn signals
    Enlarged plastic cargo rack,
    EagleMike doohickey with the better torsion spring,
    The metal choke thimble on the carb,
    New rear tire (Kenda 761) with only a couple hundred miles on it.
    Improved headlight is MUCH brighter than stock.
    A bottle of blue Locktite comes with it. I use the stuff on everything I unscrew.

    The JC Whitney topbox is a mixture of good & bad. It's there, holds a helmet, and whatever else. However, the latch never worked well, so I drilled a hole for a lock to securely keep things shut. That worked till somebody tried to force it open and there are now two small cracks. One is at the lock hole and the other is at the right hinge. Just being up front about it and again, the box still works. JC Whitney puts these on sale now & then for 30-some bucks, so it could always be replaced cheaply.

    With the updates, the price is $1700 firm. I do have the original bodywork and tank for another $400.<!-- START CLTAGS -->

    That '82 R100GS' has been posted for sale in various places for probably at least a year now. There have been threads on it. FWIW I have no idea what the seller thinks the GS connection is.

    Thanks for the mention. The bike's in Maryland and I'm doing lots of travel for work, so haven't been able to show it. If people sent me a message, I really will try to get back to them.

    You can pm me here on ADV.
