Re: The Craigslist Thread

My first real motorcycle was a twin cylinder, 2 stroke Yamaha 90cc street bike that was that same yellow color. Wouldn't mind having the bike without the side car.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

That's so funny and I so get it. I would love to have it but don't know what I'd do with it. Look at it a lot I guess.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

A $13k bike with 90 miles for $7k? Something is fishy in Denmark (or, Pasadena, actually).

"I have a 2014 Harley Davidson 48 that I purchased Brand New .I am wanting to sell it. It only has 90 miles on the Odometer. So it is basically Brand New! Just decided I don't need it! It has the upgraded Metallic Chrome Flake Paint! Bike is $13,100 OTD at San Jacinto Harley. Give me $7,000 and it's yours!"

Could be read as "All my buddies were buying Harleys so I did too. I didn't know how hard motorcycles are to ride and my wife won't let me take any rider courses. Now I have to take a bath on the price just to get it out of the door. Her worship has given me one week to get rid of it."

In 78 I bought a 71 TR6 with only 1200 miles as Bells BSA because the local assistant DA was playing Keep Up With the Jones, but couldn't ride.

Still I'd go over the numbers with a toothpick to see if there was any bondo.

7k isn't a bad price , it's right in the middle of Blue Book pricing. It is a 4 year old bike, and that 13.1k includes tax, title, and destination fees, maybe an extended warranty.

It also has only 90 miles so chances are it needs the fuel system rebuilt as well

Appears to be a home built aluminum trailer, but well made. There is probably $1000 in scrap aluminum sitting there

That doesn't look homebuilt to me. A few companies around the US make those. I have a riding buddy in KY that owns one looking identical to that. GVWR is impressive considering how light it is. $1,400 is a very reasonable CL asking price IMO.

Upon a closer look, I think you may be right.

I saw the exposed ends on the upper rail and didn't look "professionally" built.
But a home built trailer wouldn't have all data stuck to the tongue.

Rarely does one see an aluminum trailer able to carry two bikes under $2K
