Default Just bought this


Just picked this up. Real rough, but an easier project than most of the stuff I've done lately. It will be nice to work on something that's a little more straightforward. Besides, for 500 bucks I'm not risking much.

I have one just like it with only 2,600 miles. She's in much better shape than yours but it probably won;t take much to get her looking good!

Best color ever, exactly like mine. At $500 that's a no brainer. Congrats.

Plenty of pics when I tear it apart. It's been stored outside, the brakes are seized and the gas is spoiled. I have another bike ahead of it that I have to finish assembling (and sell) before I start on this. The guy gave me a bunch of new plastic with it but I'm going to sell that on eBay to offset some of the cost of buying it. I'm curious to see how little I can spend but still have something that's really road worthy. I might do some track days on it.

This makes me sad. I don't know why people do this.

Mine passed road worthy about 100k ago.

I don't understand it, either. The guy didn't have a garage but instead of spending money on a shed he bought two Harley V-rods that are sitting out in the weather, too.

On the other hand, $500.00 bikes don't come from good owners.

There is a lot of truth to that. I picked up a bike for free. The owner had been riding it on salted roads and it need some love.

At least it was being ridden. I know a guy who has a Suzuki Savage the he bought new and has ridden year-round in Massachussetts for 8-10 years. It's rusting into oblivion but you can't say it wasn't used.
