    1984 VF500f - $1200 (Elmwood Il.)

    https://peoria.craigslist.org/mcy/d/1984-vf500f/6339563998.html

    Bike runs great. Ride it every day if the weather permits. The motor has 9000 miles, but the odometer says 20,000 because it came off a parts bike. It also comes with the disassembled parts bike which is the same year. Bike doesn't need anything, it is fun to ride, just looking to move up to a VFR800. I included a pic of the bikes when I bought them. I used the best of each bike to make the bike you see. It's not perfect but gets lots of complements

    That is awesome and seems like a very reasonable price. I'm guessing it won't last long.

    2003 Yamaha FJR 1300, 47K, Excellent condition $2400

    Looks like it's somewhere in South-Eastern Iowa. No pictures so use your imagination!

    Edit: Nauvoo is on the Illinois side of the Mississippi. If you visit make sure to check out the Mormon Church, you can't miss it. I'm going to try to look at this thing, it's a great excuse to stretch my FJR's legs this spring on the Great River Road.

    Edit2: didn't get a response. Now there are pictures, I remember seeing these pictures posted before... Also the price is now $800 higher.

    Why - just because it looks like this: :lol3

    First sign of a scam seems to be the magic price of around $1200 for something that's worth at least $3k or more. :deal

    I'd love to have another DR6 but I didn't realize they kept their value so well. I did enjoy this: "This is not a KLR, XR but similar". :lol3

    I thought this was a good deals thread. A DR650 that's 11 years old for 4200 dollars? Go fish.
