    Just think how much a bike would be worth if Garff and Cargill Gould get together on a project!!!

    I mean, what are the major manufacturers doing?!?!?

    How are Cargill and (good ol) Garff not designing our new bikes?!?!?!?

    Think about what the nea T7 COULD have been!!!

    What about the new KLR?!?!?

    Think about the new KLR!!!!!!

    I don't get it. You can buy a brand new, not shitty bike for $5000 or a fully restored not shitty old bike. Who the fucks going to spend that on a POS honda 350 twin?

    Again, ebay shocks, ebay rearsets, ebay clipons, ebay muffler and pipe wrap, A HD peanut tank ( they finally found one that makes the bike look even worse).

    Not a single trick bit on the bike and to top it off I guarantee nothing was done to the engine, suspension or brakes to make it better than stock. Even has garbage tires on it.

    If it was well done it would be cool.
    But it's not. Got a tiny gas tank, uncomfortable seat, gutless turd of an engine ( 25-30hp?), bad suspension, terrible brakes. It's not fast, it doesn't handle well, won't stop well. Luckily it has a small tank because your going to want to get off of it regularly.

    It has all of the disadvantages of being a cafe racer without being a.... racer. And this one doesn't even look good. It looks like shit.

    Cafe racers had big tanks so you wouldn't need to stop for gas when running at high speed for long periods of time. They had whatever was the best brakes available so you could actually ride them fast and not die. Would of had better suspension than most bikes at the time. Would have used the best tires available. The whole point of the miserable seat, rearsets and clipons was you could lay flat and get every bit of speed out of it. This bike won't go fast enough to need it.
    Even by 1973 tech this bike sucked.

    Yes your ass would probably be feeling pretty bad after a few hours riding it.

    You have to admit- the description inspires a lot of confidence :lol3

    Looks clean probably just needs the carb synced up and you gaskets and rubbers also a couple bolts here in there but all in all you have to see for yourself

    !987? , I don't think so, maybe 1977. Seriously, if that's an unmolested GL1000 exhaust system in good shape, it's probably worth a good portion of that $700.

    It's a four, so it's twice as close to being worth the ask.

    If he would only “customize” it and put on a crazy price, why it’d sell instantly! :jump
