Re: The Craigslist Thread

Okay, I don't know if this bike is on Craigslist or not, but we saw it on the highway this weekend. Looks to be in very good condition.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

My right leg is no longer strong enough to start that one. 360 MX was tough.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

That was my first bike, when I was in the Army in Germany. And from what I've seen, the price is about right if the bike runs as good as it looks.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

That's actually a 1972. First year with "Torque Induction" or as non-marketing people would call it, a reed valve. Looks to be pretty much original other than the tuning fork sticker added to the tank.

Decent price if it runs and the compression release works so you can kick it without losing a right foot.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

I had the same identical one back in the day, and it could be a bear to start. I would like another but the knees say no way..
