    I had a 2004 R1150RT just like that silver one - bought it in '13 with 14,xxx miles on it.
    It had been 'over maintained' (servo brakes flushed and serviced every other year no matter the low miles).
    Great bike, but that whole servo setup can be $$ if it needs work.

    Since Blake is doing such a great job of covering New Mexico's CL good deal ads I thought that I would look closer to the great white north.

    1974 Honda 550 four with 1582 miles. $3250 is a little spendy. But the up side is that it probably has not been tea bagged in a while.

    Nearly Brand New 46-year-old Classic!

    Selling for my dad, who has owned it since 1986 (check the tabs!) and never ridden since.

    Recently went through carbs.
    Two of the three are perfect, one needs a little tweaking from the right vintage Honda enthusiast.

    A lot of times people post a picture of what their intentions were of the item they are selling. Not sure if this is the case but there seems to be a lot of money invested in it to sell it at $1200. :dunno

    Seller's other photos show a stock-looking K. I'd bet the "Cafe racer project" is only in the seller's imagination. Seems like it still is an ok deal if it is truly as represented.

    He tried to sell it before and the ad read: "Selling my 1990 bmw k100lt the bike has been in a shed since 2002 I have all service records up to that point, the bike cranks and even tried to start up when I used starting fluid, I’m pretty sure it needs a new fuel pump it comes with manuals and original tools feel free to ask me any questions the bike comes with everything you need to get it on the road (oil, oil filter, air filter, brand new battery Asking $1200 OBO"

    Every time I see a machine that has the knife treatment I thank God that we don't all have a torch.
