    Norton was a scam. That's a $10k bike. A basket case is more than $1000 now. I did my part helping to flag it down.

    1976 Honda MR175 - $1200 (Parker)

    For sale is a pretty rare 1976 Honda MR175 two stroke. Beautiful bike in great shape - it's a survivor.
    Hardly been ridden, mostly just to put around on trails behind my house. Runs and shifts super smooth,
    lights work, starts up first or second kick, and has two spark plugs for racing if that's what ya wanna buy it for.
    Call or text with any questions, might be open to trades for other bikes.

    Bike is very clean with beautiful patina, original paint, matching-numbers, like new wiring, and frame still has factory shine! It is truly in great shape, in my opinion a rating of 9 out of 10, with only some very minor imperfections that would be consistent. $1000

    Wuss :lol3

    I had a MK IV chopped with a long springer front end on it while growing up. I guess that is why I never grew up.

    Come to think up it, it is probably a miracle that I survived. :p3rry

    I had one of those...very, VERY briefly. The combination of rocket-thrust acceleration, brakes like an old Schwinn, and a frame that seemed to be made of rubber...had me selling it before I went through one tank of gas.

    I was still a n00b and was recovering from my road-rash; and I had no IDEA that just by putting it away I could have multiplied my money 10x.

    I had a H1, 1974, loved the rear fender, lost the inner fender and the front fender, cut everything i could off, put a huge stealyourface on that bad ass back fender and some expansion chamber pipes i found on it , god what a death trap. Had to replace the bearings cuz i couldnt keep the front end down , and people rolled up their windows in traffic as the pipes spit smoke rings at them! had it to just north of 115 mph on 25, she got a little light,,, lol. and the brakes? yeah, i clipped the ass end of a pick up trying to get her slowed down. didnt go down, but i pooped my pants i think. fun bike,,,
