    Owner lives near Salida, a great guy who restores bikes in his retirement. Keeps the bike in Denver with relatives. I went up and saw it up close the other day.

    Looks a LOT better in pictures than in person. :nod

    The paint is not only faded, there's some bad touch-ups done....needs a complete repaint.
    Mechanically, it sounded tight and was a good runner - but would require more than I wanted to put into it to make it a good looking bike.

    Read up on the 'Belgian Police' thing....interesting story. I did check the VIN, and it's a Euro market bike - so one of the 100 that Butler & Smith got with a few interesting bits.

    Kickstarter, black fairing lowers, 40mm Bings, 40mm exhaust, etc.

    He was pretty firm on his price, and I lean towards Marc's assessment - if it could be had cheaply enough to offset the amount you'd pour into it to make it sharp....maybe. But not $5250 (IMO).

    There was one of these for sale out of Durango all fall/winter for $3200, and recently has gone off of Craigslist. Kind of ratty looking even at 3200. Same fairing color "belgian police" etc. I wonder if it is the same one and this guy bought it and is now trying for a quick flip. For some reason prices on this era of BMW have gone nuts lately. Or people are hoping they will and speculators are having a field day.

    A member of our local Trail riding club has posted an add for a 2000 KTM 380 EXC.

    The bike has been listed as in very good condition. The price was listed at $1000.00. Says that the reason for selling is that he no longer uses it.

    PM me and I can forward you an email with the ad.

    Kawasaki Blue 1972 - $1000 (Albuquerque)
    I've got a old 750 cc Kawasaki that I bought new and have moved with me over the years, it is time for it to go away. It ran several years ago, I did drain the carbs when I parked it, there are three of them. It is a 2 stroke which means it takes oil and gas - but you do not have to mix it as there are seperate tanks. The bike is original and complete, but dusty. I expect with enough time and effort it would clean up like new. I believe it has almost 10,000 miles on it, I will check when I go to get pictures later today. There is a small dent and scrape on the bottom of one of the mufflers, I do remember that. I'd like $1000.00 or best offer. I know that is more than the "dollar a cc" I was offered a long time ago, but I feel it is worth the difference.

    Opinions on the bike itself and what is involved in fixing the kicker?

    2 red flags that would make me NEVER consider it- no title and the broken kickstarter (if it is the shaft).
