Default Post your worst craiglist etc... ads.

As the title suggests, post your best classified ads. Doesn't have to be bike related. Funny ad? ridiculous ad? Someone want a ton of money for a pile of crap? We want to see them.

Keep in mind, Craiglist ads go dead very often, so please copy/paste the text over. Pics too if they are part of the fun

I usually scour my local classified for bikes/tools/what have you because I'm a cheap SOB and always come across some gems. Figure some are worth sharing.


UPDATE: June 15 - Today, my bikes fairings are being professionally repainted. Will update pictures once repainted. It will be Matte Red/Black - DONE: June 19th.

ODO: 53,500


I'm selling my R6 or trade for Sport/Performance/Touring type bikes. /YEAR:1999 or greater. Bike must have two seats and rear passenger handle or equivalent. This bike has recently been serviced and inspected.
New oil
New Stator(w/14G wire so no melting and better charge.)
New Reg/Rec
New rear tire
New front brakes
New front aftermarket turn signals
Spare fairings
New air-horn system with high power instant compressor. Plus, 40amp relay. Loud and sounds awesome.

Update:30/05/14 - Replacing with newer front forks sometime soon. Will provide receipt if done. Left fork tube is fine. Will lower price fairly if you want to do forks yourself.

A few things you should know that I didn't know when I bought it off another craigslist owner.
All the things replaced were necessary because he sold me a broke, NOT REBUILT bike. Thankfully I've invested in it and repaired it! It has been dumped slightly. The bike also has been painted over by previous owner. Bike is not a rebuild! No major accidents.

*Bike is now all black! I've removed grey plasti-dip. 2014/05/24 UPDATE.*

Spare fairings also have the same deal. Though, now after I've repaired everything she runs absolutely great! I have proof of inspection and a number for a licensed mechanic and store owner of Chop Shop cycles. He came and picked up the bike and repaired everything for a great price! If you have any questions you may call me with the number provided. Or email me. You may also text. Price is negotiable to extent. I do not want to sell the bike but I'm throwing this ad out here so that if I find a different sport type bike I like I'll swap it or take a fair amount of cash. Otherwise I love this bike a lot! Also, if needed

Lastly depending on the type sport touring type motorbike! I'll add cash depending on bike. That being it's over 600cc. Hopefully over 800 or 1000. Lots of power... Ect.

NO other trades! NO low-ball! NO test rides unless money is in hand (Me holding it). No paypal! No shipping. You drop it, you'll buy it. It's insured so you may try.

Also, I can throw two full face modular helmets. Each are two sized Medium:Small. They're SiGi-Drifter S-M. Cheek inserts are washable and swappable sizes!

Here's my YouTube video of the bike. It's outdated as the color has changed as with the fairings!

If you're going to do this, please remove the seller contact info. Do not post direct links.

We don't want to have a thread advertising stuff for non members.
