Re: The Craigslist Thread

Check this ad out. What do you think he can get for this bike? I just saw a clean 'busa go for $3500. I think he is in for a disappointment...

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Heck, I just saw a listing for 2012 Rebel with only 186 miles on it, for $2250.

What I've noticed over several years is that Rebels rarely drop below a certain price point, even when they're pretty old. But they also never rise above a certain price point, even when they're pretty new. He can ask whatever he wants. Maybe he'll get lucky.

Steering ratio adjusted? That's a new one.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

A what?????

Engine looks like a Honda CX500 engine from the 70s. I doubt if anything in there dates from 1962.

Yeah - that made me scratch my head, too. Maybe he means trail / rake ? That might be giving him too much credit ?

That picture needs to be beside the word "abortion" in the dictionary.

That's true with virtually any bike. As long as it runs, drives, and looks semi presentable, it's probably good for like $1500 or so. Once the price dips under that you're generally getting into stuff that either needs mechanical work or is rough looking.

Bikes with absurd asking prices I tend to pay attention to. I know they'll get next to zero interest, so if it's something I want just bookmark the ad, and come back in a few weeks. The asking price usually tumbles pretty quick. Just bought a Burgman initially advertised for $3k for $1300, about a month later.

I'm guessing the steering was "adjusted" initially by being tossed into a ditch.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Great deal on an XR650L. I emailed him and said to add a few pounds of air to the rear shock and that may fix it. He said mechanic said it needs new rear shock....

Quote:
2002 Honda Xr 650 L - $2400 (Domain)

Stored in garage.

More pictures upon request.

13,987 miles on her. Runs very well.

Carb cleaned and rebuild with new gaskets/ jets/ etc. from Cuz'n Bob's moto shop. Have invoice paid.

Also, Oil changed, new hoses. Invoice paid also From Cuz'n Bob's.

New air filter installed! Battery is good.

Does need the rear shock rebuilt or other.
Still drives fine/ good. For $150 rebuild from Onroad Offroad Cycles SW Austin, Y oak hill will add 20% in value right off the bat.

Lots of upgrades/ add ons-

Larger tank $200
Rear rack $150
Extra set of off road tires $100-300
Foot Pegs $200
Shocks are aftermarket
handle bars after market

$750+ in add ons

Any questions, please ask and I'll do my best to answer. Call or text is best. Will remove listing when sold.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Mechanic thought a rebuild of rear shock would be what's needed. $150 at Onroad Offroad Cycles. Then Custom to your weight as well
