    I wouldn't think so. For 1500 bucks you could buy it and just stuff it in a new barn for another 35 years.

    Hey, O.G., you or somebody else in PDX go look at this:

    https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/mpo/5999114928.html

    A '77 R100RS from New Mexico, NO TITLE, but only $1500- (ish... )
    He essentially says cash talks, and it reads as if the bike was his father's. Been dissasembled for 20+ years. No pics in ad, but written coherently.
    I'm sure it needs some work, but I need another project like I need a hole in my head. (This is exactly how I got my RS. :D)

    Hey Pete, I'd be all over that except I'm out of town on a little vacation. All the good deals seem to pop up when I'm gone.

    Maybe Wirespokes went and got it, he's into the RS's.

    And here's an incredibly typical CL ad. "No title, but can give you a bill of sale". Seriously, if you have legal possession of the bike, then you can apply for the replacement title from the state.

    I would be tempted to go look. It even has the 3/4 cowl seat still in the plastic bag!

    BMW R1000RS - $4898 (Clifton)

    I sometimes buy them without titles but not at that price! Only at parts-donor prices in case I run into trouble with DMV.
    In Arkansas, if they're old enough, it's pretty easy to get a title based on a bill of sale. So far, so good, anyway.

    That's an inmate's bike. It's in the main Flea Market as well. Very tempting considering how well done those wheels are. I was drooling over the photos yesterday.

    I'm smelling scam now. I emailed the seller around noon today. No response. Now the ad has been updated (a round 3PM) and the price was upped to $6898? WTF?

    I actually like the black hubs and hoops, but either way they were built up well paint or not.

    Now the price has gone up by $2000. Must be something special. He's about $4000 too optimistic.

    And most of the time, they want your home address as well.
