    Interesting how the cafe tail just sits on the rear fender. Nice double vision styling. Or something.

    Its the night for it

    20grand for a manky pos with a blown up engine, but that's OK I Ihave a probably stolen different era engine that will make it worth less as a mongrel and you can fit it yourself and sort out what doesn't fit or run properly.

    He's totally right about that sidecar wheel being totally bitchin' because it is faired in like that.

    But then I want a DN-01 when they are five grand

    That XL brought back memories. A shop down here for whom I did a little outwork brought in quite a few rough used XL/XR's. Frequently painted them white and called them "the rare Canadian model"....which brought a price premium. I see it still applies.

    I could do this all day, I'd better stop.
    This is the best bit.
    Being an old Japanese bike all the parts are very easy to come by and are very cheap.

    ' I only have $800 will you take that much?
    ' If you can drop the price to a $1000, I can give you some now and the rest in a months time.'
    ' I don't have any money now, can you keep your bike until I get some?'
    ' Will you take 1000 bucks now for a quick sale?'.
    ' I just need to sell my bike first. If I give you $200, will you hold the bike for me?.

    I have stuck a note below the bike details. "If you only have a $1000, go look for a $1000 bike, Dickheads will not get emails replied to".


    '
    I had a guy come to look at my Suzuki, spent over an hour looking at it and test riding it, agreed to the price, then let me know he'll settle as soon as his car sells. That wasn't even Trademe, that was from my KB ad, though I didn't catch his username.

    Lot of those old bikes with suicide shift have manual timing adjustment from a twist grip. So you gotta get the timing and throttle right. Fucken hard to get them going.
    Polemic....look it up

    And where is that clutch lever pointed???

    The clutch can't go any lower. It has very short clip-ons and it would hit the headlight. This is the only reason race bikes don't have headlights ......

    It always worries me when they have owned it for 3 months and selling it. Every vehicle I've flicked off quickly is due to it being a money pit!
