    Even at 6 cents a square inch the cost adds up pretty quick. We do a lot of parts in electroless nickel to get that price.

    I was rebuilding but have to sell for financial reasons. Brand new Kenda tires and wheels. Have receipts for $1200 for work and parts already installed. Runs good, only needs carbs put back on, speedometer, and the rear brake installed. Please call or text 417-987-1136 if interested, no emails. Asking $900 obo.

    now how the hell would he know if it runs good if'n the carbs aint put on?

    I'm guessing (given the kick starter) a battery would be unnecessary.

    That looks really similar to the 75 F7 I had back in the day. Mine would not run without a battery. Although many have told me they will. :dunno

    These ads that say " just needs a gas cap or just needs a tune up" I think to myself, why don't you just fix whatever needs to be fixed and maybe you can get close to your asking price. :dunno I know, I'm thinking what I would do, not what these cheapskate's would do.

    Lots of flippers out there.
    What really pisses me off is when I ask what's it need?
    Seller says nothing.

    I waste 2 hours driving to see a bike that needs fork seals rear shock rebuild and sprockets and chain.
    But it needed nothing! :huh

    Maybe it did "need nothing".... in order to drive it off the Scumbag's driveway. Those schmiesters deserve ZERO respect.

    This is sad about the motorcycling community in total. I could go on and on.
