    Of course it's a scam. I've seen basically the same one before on off road KTM's.
    I even amused myself for whole day emailing back and forth with the scammer. She had multiple excuses why the bike couldn't be seen at that time.

    Plus the price is just to good to be true.

    Seems like a fair price for a used four stroke KTM.

    Indeed. $1500-$2100 price, single photo, out of state number or gmail address on the photo= scam.

    They have been doing these for a while on 12V Cummins, and have branched out to bikes, cars, tractors, you name it. The photo is usually stolen from eBay or Cardomain- this one is from Ebay where it sold for $6700 There is also a similar scam in FB groups now, so stay on your toes.

    If I had the money I'd be on it. Though I can't ride right now... Trade you a DRZ and/or a '94 CB1000 big one :)

    So I pulled this out of the barn the other day, put in a new plug, dumped some gas down its throat and she fired up just like I knew a Honda would. If you know what you are looking at then you know this is a one year only model, single carb, highly sought after XR350. Comes with very hard to find Hondaline hand guards and a working speedo/odometer timer module. She starts on a couple kicks, runs, shifts, and stops. Might need a little clutch adjustment. Now for the bad: ever since I have owned her there is a ticking sounds from the engine. I'm 99% sure the cam chain is stretched out. Its not a terrible job to do but it does take some time. Again its made this sound for the 5 years Ive owned her and hasn't gotten worse. Included with the sale is a new seat cover, new gas tank stickers, an NOS OEM exhaust cover plate and some odds n ends Ive collected including a cam chain guide which I would replace when changing the cam chain. NO TRADES are needed and no test rides without cash. Also, I live in town so the test rides are limited anyways. twosixtwo threetwothree sixthreefivezero. text works best. I will pull this ad when sold so no need to ask if I still have it.
