    I think we've done this one, but I'm almost interested what kind of tyres this is wearing.

    As they blend into the sidewall they look kinda cartoony. The tread pattern is novel but it doesn't instinctively make you think it will be channeling the water away.
    Going out on a limb, I don't expect they will say Dunlop or Bridgestone on them.

    First thing I noticed about the photo was that it's local. Never seen the bike on the road though. Of course that "No WOF Etc Etc Etc" may have something to do with that.

    I'm guessing that engine costs a fair bit but its virtually on the floor.
    Also, just pointing out that he has it advertised as a Harley Davidson but it looks to me as if it has zero HD parts.
    Not that I care, just reminded me of all those tiny chopper things that used to clog up TM and had HD in their listing titles...

    HD is a fashion genre, not a motorcycle company.

    Fun fact. My middle name is Harley. But I respect my father.

    Sometimes I wonder if we should all chip in $10 and buy the bloody thing to get it off the net and save some bandwidth.

    We could raffle it.

    Perhaps something a bit like what Top Gear did with caravans. Maybe pendulum smash it into the $30 grand H2 750? Be a waste of one bike, but it would be worth it to see his reaction.

    Great comment so $50 / 4 = $12.50 worth of rego. Maybe he should do the full year and bump the price to $25,037.50.

    Perhaps just one of the trademe promotion options and add that to the price also.

    "Bike owes me more than Buy now price "


    Yes. That's because you over capitalised an old trail bike. That's not my problem.

    optimistic sellers

    Oh I do miss the optimistic sellers thread. I have just been going through TM pre 86 listings and there seems to be a vast number of grossly overpriced café racers and brown seat wonder bikes

    It must be because of all the 'improvement's" they've made ... and "Custom" parts ...

    I merged your new thread with the old one. There was an issue with it that was brought to my attention by husaberg and it was sorted by SpankMe a couple days ago.
