started on the last kick.
Have had dealings with him before. This is par for the course.
This guy seemed to do his VFR homework except for market value.
Nobody is restoring that mess for more than five or six hundred bucks, and that's if the opened up motor you opened up and took pictures of actually turns over. That thing is so knackered you'd have a hard sell at that price even if it ran and rode.
I've parted out about 25 bikes and the almost identical VF1000F motor parts I had are about the worst things I've ever wasted my time listing. I've been trying to sell these things for over a year and have dropped the price over and over again. They're so bad I've literally tried to give the whole lot away to any customer that buys a single part. For a parts bike value since the bodywork is busted and it's in such dirty shape the wheels, suspension, and brakes might be the only thing worth any money and I'm only guessing that because it's an R model. Carbs and engine electronics might be worth something if the motor ran, but since it's not you can't honestly list them as working parts. You might be able to find the right fool but I'd only give you about $100 for that bike if you dropped it off at my door.
The number of items with silly Buy Now! prices is astounding. Some get listed again and again and again, hoping for some fool who doesn't know any better.
I don't think someone can read an odometer.
Seller says bike is an unrestored 5632 miles bike yet the odometer in the picture clearly reads 65326. Hmmm...:huh
The 6 is silent
I just spoke with him for a few minutes, he is not that familiar with BMWs, and honestly thought the 7 was a 10th reading, the rest was just dyslexia.
He also wasn't aware that the seat was NOT a Denfeld, or that the front fender had been chopped.
He is going to fix the listing, and keep it running. The price is very fair for what it is and he's actually a pretty nice guy.He was very appreciative of the info.
Not every one is an ass-hat.
I'm also a little mellower today than normal, my Dad passed away Friday morning.
I wouldn't know a thing about most of the old bikes.
Sorry to hear about your Dad.
My sincerest condolences.... Honestly!
I figured Dyslexia was on the one digit... but you never can tell. I emailed the guy and didn't get a response and that was why I posted it.
Hang in there.
Good lord....I threw away two of these yesterday that were straighter than these "dog legs".
that is funny stuff there....
I thought this was funny in an ignorance kind of way ...
In the description:
BMW Rear Shock Absorber R100GS PD "B"
"Nice shape, measures 19.25" between the eyes. Marked as from a R100GS PD (police department)"
How about a 1974 R90 /6 listed with only 5,933 miles that is sporting the wrong speedo for the year?
Listed by a guy who's wife won't let him ride. And he says it's "very fast" :huh
Its amazing to me the current bid on the bike is $3,350. and it clearly needs some work getting going again.
Ran when parked
Bevel Heaven has these plastic stacks for about $10.00 each I believe.
Of course...they're black not grey.
Should be an easy fix...
My condolences on your Fathers passing. My mom passed the weekend before.
I always enjoy your informative posts! Your Dad must have been a special guy!
