    I would guess he doesn't really want to sell, just wants to show it off.

    "wtf, $600 for a seat? i found the rest of the seller’s ads. $1800 if you total everything up, and it’s maybe $600 worth of stuff."

    The fact that he's from Boulder should say enough!

    Based on the other parts listed (side covers, luggage, stock exhaust) the seller is clearly building a cafe bike. Normally, I don’t get too upset seeing an RT get the cafe treatment, but that’s a pretty exceptional looking RT.

    Lived there for 1.5yrs, and that was about 1.5yrs too long. I shouldn’t expect better. The seller is likely just trying to afford their overpriced rent/mortgage, lol!

    He calls it new but it's used. It might sell. It's in good used condition.

    A friend retired an R80 amd sold it awhile later, the new owner has a bad back and had to sell recently for $3500. It’s back on the block now for $7000. Asshole!

    Asshole,... maybe. Or is he just trying to sell at what the market can stand? Or maybe he doesn't really want to sell it so much as show it off?

    Maine - vehicles manufactured before 1995 do not require titles. Motorcycles under 300cc do not require titles. Anyone want to register a TZ for the street? How about an Aprilia RS250? No problem.

    A real shame. The ad says he is parting out the whole bike even though it only has 30k miles and is in perfect condition. The pics of the bike look good. Cant save them all and to each there own but I hate to see it happen.

    Agreed. It’s a bit of a tragedy...
