    Quite high. He probably has some personal ties to the bike or is just full of BS. In 62 they did not make a Diana so it actually is a Monza. At lease he got the 250 MKII right. One in good shape might ?? bring 1/2 that price so he is a bit of a dreamer. But hey that is what craigs list is for isn't it :lol3

    I am trying to remember the last time I saw a flat tracker with mini ape bars on it., HMM let me think, like never. :fpalm

    Ian - can't wait to see that 305 Catalina fixed up!



    (that Duc would be steeply priced at $3500)

    Sorry Blake probly not gonna happen, I have a hunch it's going to be sacrificed so others can live....

    The first thing I looked for when I got there was the bicycle pump under the tank - the last one I picked up still had it and I sold it for about $300 (!!???) - not so lucky this time.

    But, does anyone know if this is one the motors that need the clutch pulled in to kick it over??

    Toslow,
    Still got the Sno-Twister in your avatar? That takes me back. Those things were insane. Tiny, light, powerful.
    I lost many an oval sprint race to those...

    If that tooth has real gold filling, it's worth more than $50...

    There's a big bore kit and I think it's the same chassis as the 600.

    That would be 284827.855 miles. I was thinking because it's single it would age quicker, the brunt of the work is on a single cylinder.

    The guy added the tenth's to the mileage, so it is really 45,838.6 KM.
    X that # by .62= 28,420 miles. Proper maintenance a single in my experience will go double that #.
    Mostly, frequent oil and air filter changes, valve clearances kept in spec, etc. My 690 ingested a bit of dirt early in it's life,
    due to a poorly designed air filter box. I caught it early, and have had no loss of power in almost 46K miles.

    The SRX-6 was only available in the US for the 1986 model year and came with a twin shock rear end. Other markets got the single shock rear end and aluminum swing arm up until sometime in the 90s. I believe this SRX-4 was a Japanese market only bike.
    Wish Yamaha re-made these instead of the crappy/retro SR400 for the US market...

    And It has an electric start as opposed to the first gen SRX and the SR. I like it but it's a bit pricey IMO.
