    Classic Honda 1982 450cme - $10000 (Santa Ana)


    This motorcycle is in good condition. It has a dent in the fuel tank and a broken choke cable. Everything else works great. Runs great. It is a reminiscent of the 1980's scene. When college kids used to buy motorcycle's to get to school and work. The ride and feel of the bike is great. The asking price is not just a price but a feeling that is granted knowing that you are riding on a piece of history. Where not many of these motorcycles are left in good running shape. Please email for further information. Only serious collectors and minor re-builders please. Only 7,000 miles on the motorcycle all original parts.
    The 1980's the music the scene the emotions where so powerful. This motorcycle brings back so many emotions that only the 1980's could have. You must try it. There is only one way to construct the time again, that is to have some great reward bring you back to the time you felt it the most. Of course then again I do not really now if I want to part with it. But maybe. I was not living during those ages. It would make a great summer party piece to talk about or take a girl out on. But words can only do harm this motorcycle if you road it again would so make your heart cry for the feelings and emotions of the 1980's. But you do not have to listen to my advice on deciding your youth. You can always just try it out and buy it.

    I tried on this great leather suit made by Tiger Angel in Australia. Unfortunately, it was too big for me otherwise I would have bought it right away. The leather is the best quality I have ever seen in a non-custom suit. Jacket is a little longer than usual, which I also liked. This is a really good deal for an entire suit in very good condition.
