    I'm willing to bet that, like the NS50F above, it tops out around 60 mph and you need to flog it within an inch of it's life to do that. If your commute was mostly low speed (<50 mph), that would be a riot. Certainly a really good starter bike for a petite female or early teen. I'm also willing to bet parts are very hard to come by.

    Those spammers must get a good deal on exclamation points by buying in bulk. They sure use a lot of 'em.

    Wonder how much goofing around it would take to drop a modern, liquid-cooled KX100 motor into the frame? Breeze had a KX100 and at running around town speeds, it was way, way, way fun.

    This might be against the rules, it's not mine but it's such a screaming deal that I can't take advantage of that I'd like to share it. Hopefully it's not a bunch of CL crap, but there is a real phone number at least.

    1992 TDM850 for $1000. It's not that far away from me if someone wanted it I could go look at it(repaying a debt to the forum). I'd be willing to look it over, test ride it, and if some one needed store it until you can pick it up.

    Screaming screaming deal....damn I wish I had a 1k.....

    You mean this one: http://desmoines.craigslist.org/mcy/3451181689.html Phone number and picture of it in a garage (not in some swanky palm tree location) looks legit to me. That is a great deal.

    That'd be the one. I had the link posted, but I posted in the wrong place...was on my way out the door and didn't look for this thread. I text t he owner, he says it needs the seat recovered, some clips for the body work, and the battery is most likely going south. He said it'll only hold a charge for about 24 hours, but the bike runs and rides fine. Still a really good deal in my mind.

    If I bought it, I'd send the seat to be spencerized and then have a custom cover done locally, buy the couple of clips, new battery and call it good. He says chain and sprockets, and tires are still good as well.

    I've actually got a co-worker who needs some help with some house projects that offered to float me a loan if I'd help him with his diy projects. I hate to get into something like that, but I'd be willing to help him for nothing and $1000 isn't "alot" of money just more than I have to cut loose around christmas time(and after tires, helmet, chain/sprockets, soft tail bag etc for the the triumph I just bought lol).

    If it's still there I plan to go look at it this weekend. If someone else wants it, shoot me a PM and we'll work something out.
