    You're gonna need more than $750 for one of those (if you can find one)

    Yeah, but that one looks just a LITTLE nicer than mine ;-). Mine also had a Golf engine, a custom IRS transaxle and rear suspension, disc brake front end, etc. All cool stuff for actual drivability, but all stuff that reduced the value, since it involved cutting, modifying, rewelding the original chassis. All the value in these is the ability to restore to original. Fortunately, mine was bought by a guy who seems to be a lot like me.

    1971 Chevrolet Nova

    condition: fair
    cylinders: 8 cylinders
    drive: rwd
    fuel: gas
    title status: clean
    transmission: automatic

    Testing the waters. I don't have to sell but if I can get what I want I'll gladly free up some space in my garage. This car I got as a trade before moving to Colorado and have repaired a lot of the electrical minus the windshield wipers.
    It has a sbc 350 w/mild cam, msd ignition, Holley 600 w/electric choke, electric water pump, electric fans, fan relay.

    Th350 transmission w/5000 stall

    Body is primer red with minimal exterior rust, trunk has most as far as rust goes.

    Interior all there minus rear deck. Has factory bench seat with a hurst floor shifter.

    It's real close to being daily driver ready, I just did the plugs and now it needs to be tuned to this elevation. It's a sweet car my interest has just shifted to other things witch is where potential trades come in.

    I'd be interested in trades for a square body 4x4, K5,etc.., supermoto or dirt bike 450 four stroke. Any off road rig or something with 2 wheels really those are just my top preferences.

    Clean and clear Kansas title. My name is Kyle and txting works best as I'm always swamped at work. (5 2 0) 4 1 9-8 6 8 3. Don't need help selling and no I won't ship it, only deals in person.


    Crf450r, wr450, rm450, 450, square body, blazer, off road, 4x4, truck, cruiser.

    1979 KTM 420 - MINT CONDITION - $3850 (Erie)

    You won't find a cleaner vintage bike. This 1979 KTM 420 was built from the ground up by one of the top vintage
    bike builders in the country and has seen very little dirt time. This bike is in 100% working condition and will fire
    right up every time. Freshly built motor, brand new suspension components, clean tank, new tires, new chain/sprockets etc...
    I have a 2 year old son at home and just don't have the time to ride this bike along with my other two-wheeled toys.
    This bike won't last long and is posted in several forms/sites. No trades and cash only.

    I would so be interested in this if it weren't for the GPS micro-chip implant for the test ride. ;) :clap:clap Seriously, nice bike. I am drooling over this bike. I would love to take this off your hands, but can't do it right now. GLWS.

    It'll at least need carbs. I don't think that old jap Iron will breathe too well through those American Spirits.

    $500 for carbs + carb kits + tires + all the other things times 2 as a fudge factor, I say it can be on the road for $3000.53

    I was looking for Beta's today and ran across this at a dealer.

    It's over in BV and priced at 1800.0 for a 77 CB750. Not bad

    I've rescued a couple of neglected Jap bikes over the years so just out of curiosity I did a bit of googling... I think Lomax is close with $500 for carbs and rebuild kits for them, tank is suspect as are carb boots, fuel lines, seals, etc. Anything rubber/plastic is probably dried out an needs replacing on top of the hard old drive rotted tires. If you got luck you might be able to get it running well for $750-1000 on top of the purchase price.

    If I really was interested I'd "Tsk, tsk" over the missing parts, condition of the tank, tires, etc. and offer him $200 explaining how much the carbs, tires, etc. will be. If he balks offer $250 as you are walking back to your truck.

    A $500 bargain bike usually costs at least double that...been there done that. You MIGHT get off cheaper as it does look to be in pretty decent shape, but go into it with your eyes open that you will be doing a lot of work to have a dependable bike. The advantage is that you will know it well and have the pride of having saved it from the scrap yard.

    Loved the handling, miss it.
    Had a Vetter quick silver faring and took me all over AB, BC, MT, WA.
    The older I get the less I like something new.

    Sometimes the rubber boots can be revitalized with a mix of xylene and wintergreen. I did it on the Nighthawk I rescued. Pretty amazing and definitely worth a try before buying new. IIRC Lomax turned me on to it originally...
