    I just dropped a zero mile 1.3L into mine and it ran for the first time Friday evening. It has been sitting in my drive for 3 years with a blown piston. In January, I decided to go full transplant with a new engine from Zuks Off Road (climate controlled storage of a geo metro engine from the early 90's). I also bought the harley carb and adapter kit from ZOR. I have been driving it around with a smile on my face since Sunday afternoon.

    Your WA tabs are not valid through April 2022 and is not a selling point. Sure, the new owner can probably get away with using them illegally, but don't mislead and state that they're legal for the new owner.

    I use 'em up each and every time I buy a vehicle with time left on the tags. The state already rips us off enough.

    Leaving the original for sale post is a great research tool to help determine asking prices and how long it takes something to sell at what price. So, it would be better to go back and edit the post to say *sold* without actually deleting it. Though I do agree that a reply stating sold does kind of clutter the thread up.

    I dont disagree with you but so many people leave the ad and delete the price that its just not very useful in my opinion. I delete anything I post when its gone.

    Not with 37K. I paid $2K for one with 6500 miles pre-covid.

    Thanks! ordered one up. $45 but I got a deal on the bike and this should cure it.
    They let me order and then sent me an email saying it's discontinued.
    I'm still on the hunt

    $8500 for a 16yo low mile bike is absurd. I don't envy the new owner who actually rides the bike and has to deal with puking seals. Spend half as much to get a thumper or twin that's been ridden and maintained accordingly.

    In total agreement. I'm really getting tired of greedy sellers trying to profit off the COVID shortages.

    So vote with your wallet. Someone else will too....and might buy it. RLM always has nice vehicles, some are more expensive than others but they all seem to be nice.

    Shoot.. since you put it that way. I'm won over by your keen insight and will have to recheck the cushions of my couch for that spare $8500 I had earmarked just for 16 year old bikes.

    I know Kie at RLM from many years back and he's a good guy but I'll be the first to call a spade a spade and say that he priced that Dakar crazy high.

    Reminds me of my next door neighbor who recently had his home on the MLS for 1.3mil just to "go fishing and see if some rich Californian with more money than brains might come along and buy it during this housing shortage." The actual assessed value is something like $550k.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    Quite out of character for Kie actually.

    Won't be able to pay you as I'm saving up for a sweet older rotax single and I'm a long ways off with what those go for nowadays. I trust you understand.
