Arrow SOLD - Honda CRF230F, Street Legal, $2k in extras

It wasn't that long ago that I was on here trying to find a bike like this for my soon-to-be stepson. I bought this 2003 Honda CRF230F for him, and proceeded go crazy on it. A month later he turned 16 and got his license. I don't think I've see him since The bike sits, and I can't stand it. It pains me, because I will lose a decent amount on this, as I've put right at about $2,000 in extras on it, not counting the excellent condition bike! But I don't want it to rot away. There has to be somebody on TWT that can appreciate it and ride it. I'm only posting it on here for now, as I don't want to deal with craigslist people. I may add it to advrider.

I plated it with a Baja Designs kit, and it has a street legal Texas title in my name. It cranks right up, electric start, and runs fantastic. Here's the list of what I did to it. I have all the stock parts I replaced, including all plastics and tank/shrouds, which are in excellent condition. Most all of this has one or two rides on it:

-2017 gas tank, shrouds, front fender, side panels, rear fender, seat cover (Throttle Jockey)
-Flu Designs graphics kit
-Baja Designs street legal kit
-DoubleTake mirror (lifetime guarantee)
-ProTaper handlebars
-TrailTech computer
-K&N air filter
-Battery Tender pigtail for trickle charger
-NGK Iridium Sparkplug DPR8EIX
-Enduro Engineering hand guards
-Ricochet aluminum skid plate
-Zeta red anodized front brake guide clamp
-Maier black front disc/fork guard
-Red fork boots
-Rev CDI box
-JBS black oversized foot pegs (had to get from Australia)
-BBR Motorsports heavy duty shock spring
-New rear OEM shock
-Red anodized rim locks
-Red anodized chain adjusters (aka snails)
-Black spoke wraps
-Black/red rim protectors/decals

Asking $2,500. Not interested in anything less at this time. Yes, you can go find a sub $2,000 CRF230, but it won't have all the goodies, and probably not street legal. Located in Round Rock.

SOLD

Re: Honda CRF230F, Street Legal, $2k in extras

That is a great bike. I had a street legal one for a while I turned into a motard. Absolute grin machine.

Someone is going to get a nice ride.

GLWS.

The truth is, I've always wanted to deck out a 230 more than he wanted the bike

Re: Honda CRF230F, Street Legal, $2k in extras

How well does it handle on the street at 60 to 65 mph?

Better than you would expect. It's actually smoother than my KTM 500 at those speeds. With the gearing on there now, you wouldn't want to do it real long, but that can be changed easily with a sprocket if you want to make it more road friendly. I have an extra sprocket for it as well, can't recall right now if it's up or down.
