Hell no. This is becoming my winter norm. New bike to build, then sell in spring.
I have a r1200c and thinking to sell it. Nees some work, but runs well. If interested please PM.
Pulled the ABS unit out of my now sold R1200CL Custom, and replaced the unit. I had to swap over the electronics package first, then rebleed the whole thing. Not bad, about 1.5 hours work.
Ready for delivery.
I also helped a friend diagnose his starter on his 1150GS. Unfortunately it is toast. The magnets had come loose in the motor. No photos.
Do you happen to know the cost for parts ?
I bought a low miles used GS ABS unit off ebay for $300, then swapped over the electronics from the CL unit. The rear servo is bac, and I am sure I could swap it with a good one. This will be up for sale with the one bad servo and GS electronics package soon.
Back in 06, I replaced the ABS controller in my 94 R1100RS with a salvage unit i bought on ebay for $250. Seller said ti was off a R1200GS. I installed it, bled the lines, usual stuff. Then went to my local dealer to have the service manager identify the controller to my bike. He got it done, but told me the salvage unit came off a K1100RS and not a R1200GS. No matter as the ABS has worked fine since I installed it.
Finally delivered to the new owner. He was out of town for 2 months.
Still gotta say, that is a FAR better looking CLC than BMW could have ever hoped to produce. If BMW had released the CLC in that syle it may well have sold a lot more than it did.
Wow, what a compliment! Thanks!
Look what I found on CL...The Night Dragon is available again!
Now I'm curious what JVB sold it for so we can see how much the next owner is trying to profit not that it matters, it's their bike but it's a shame JVB doesn't really make back his sweat equity in these projects. it's a beautiful bike.
IIRC, he was asking $4500 and posted that it sold quickly for full list price.
glad to hear that. still not at the price he put into it but I know that's not the goal of Jim in these projects. Either way, I'm not trying to deduce why the person that bought it would be selling it. May have just not been for them. I just hate to see projects like this get flipped so quickly..same with bikes won in a raffle. at least enjoy the bike for a bit before selling it. I think at $3500, that's a fantastic price on this bike.
That’s a lot of bike for the price!
I get when they get flipped after being won in a raffle. Taxes. You have to pay the taxes on the bike to get it registered. I had a buddy that won an 1100GS he worked out a deal with the dealer that it was getting delivered too. He got a nice new slightly used bike (still a 1100GS) and owed no taxes (The dealer paid the registration and taxes) took "his" new bike as inventory. Great deal for him, and the dealer.
It is a very good price. I didn't really proffit on the bike.
The buyer seemed quite excited about it. No idea what changed in his situation. He is an inmate here, so he may chime in.
Nonetheless cool catch!
Well deserved without doubt. I'd wish I'd have half the knowledge and skill.
It didn't sell last month...Cool bike...I wonder how much a set of used stock pipes would run?

Hah, I still have the original exhaust, and the full sized windshield.
