    Dejavu - I had the 1988 twin of that with the 4.0L engine, same color same model. I really loved it and it took me and a lot of gear to a lot of places, but when it started showing serious signs of wear, I sold it to a neighbors little brother for transportation to/from school. He let the coolant get too low and blew up the engine which was the best part. Traded to a 2010 Liberty that is roomier and more comfortable to drive, but with over 20 years to work on it and a slightly smaller engine, it still doesn't get any better gas mileage than the old jeep did, and the Cherokee Chief was much better offroad. :cry

    Bought this recently, was loud and clear. Very loud.
    Don't ask, but I was going to mount it on the motorcycle on the fairing.
    But alas, found out that when run on straight internal battery (rechargeable) the volume drops off considerably.

    No problem says I, the AC adapter puts out 12v, I'll just use a cigarette lighter cord to power it. :clap

    Well, I did. And running on direct motorcycle battery, it IS louder, but the bass distorts horribly. Screw it, this ain't gonna work.:cry

    My loss is your gain. I paid a little over a hundred with tax. Selling it today with all of about 5 hours on it (Christmas music :lol3), perfect condition, with the box it came in, for $80.

    I just don't want to drive back to Target.

    Works perfect (when you use it as intended), and really has great sound. Automatically pairs with your bluetooth phone.

    Nice! This one is the 4.0L Renix as well. I honestly think this thing has never seen much offroad. Aside from the dirt roads I drive to get to lakes and reservoirs the previous owners drove it around the city of Boulder since new. It does nicely when I want to drive it in the snow instead of my rwd car, but it's going to simplify my life tremendously if I can sell it.

    SOLD!

    Just bought a new bed so the old bed (King) went into the guest room and the guest room bed (Queen) seen here has to go. Listed on CL for $300, $250 for inmates. The whole set is like new since it was in the guest room and we don't get many visitors.

    A couple of months ago I started looking for a couple of specific bikes....
    I had no luck finding anything locally, and ended up buying a very cool bike that was not on my original list. I picked it up in Las Vegas before the holidays, and it turned out to be in better condition than I'd imagined.

    Recently I found a fairly local example of one of the bikes I started my search for - so I'm putting the W650 out there for a quick local sale.
    If it doesn't sell, I don't have to have that other bike... I'll hang onto the W650 for a while - it's a pretty cool bike and fun to ride. If it sells, it will come close to breaking a record for garage-stay brevity. :lol2

    This isn't going into the main Flea Market, it's more of an "off season, maybe someone's looking" deal. And cheaper than the one in Colorado Springs craigslist too :nod :evil

    2000 W650 w/ 14,800 miles $4300

    Previous owner's wife's bike....new battery, o-ring chain, tires, and clutch w/ heavy duty springs. The oem clutch was fine, but was feeling strange so the previous owner installed a new clutch/springs and that brought the feel back. It rides and feels like a new bike. The PO had just adjusted the valves and changed the oil & filter.
    To eliminate the factory lean jetting, he installed Thruxton needles in the carbs (richer taper) and exposed the fuel screws, backing them out 1/2 turn.
    It carburets perfectly.

    Though it looks very retro, the engine is a 4 valve/cylinder SOHC, shim over bucket, using the same 7.48mm shims my TE310 does. You slide the rocker aside to get to the shim - valve adjustments are easy, and one won't have to be done for quite a while.

    I have the oem chainguard and taillight assembly, as well as a set of aftermarket cafe handlebars.

    In excellent original condition, if you're interested - take it for a spin. They feel as old's cool as they look.

    This HAS to be a record for Blake's quickest "Pass-Through" (Not counting Mexican food, of course :lol3 )

    Ok, be honest, Blake: why isn't it staying in your stable? :ear

    It might be there for years...

    I just found a nice example of the bike that was at the top of my search list.

    I'm not throwing this under the bus, or putting it up for sale in any serious fashion - just seeing if anyone local wants to take it off my hands.

    Really Blake...perhaps you should consider opening your own retail MC shop for cool bikes to satisfy your inner need to buy & sell. :D Can't imagine folks in the area would be extremely supportive.

    I'd like to see your dynamic list. That way we could play along with you. That W is one of the only non triumph well done modern retros, I was sad that they didn't do better over here. I'd be surprised if it doesn't move ...........

    PM sent on the W650 :D

    I'd been eyeing that one in Canon City but the asking price was kind of high and I don't happen to have that much gold bullion on hand...
