    Yep. A high mileage, rough heap of shit, that's dime a dozen. A guy I used to work with at WMCC had about 8 of the fucking things! Super rare!

    They've got curly levers, and in the shot looking down on the bars the lever is clearly not bent out of shape.

    The pic where it looks bent is something in the background I think.

    Why would you even bother? Except for possibly the frame the whole thing is useless and I doubt there is a hot market for burnt trx500 frames.

    I disagree, the lever is most definitely bent. These bikes do not have "curly levers", I've never seen such a thing.

    It's not even a big deal, bikes get dropped. I just don't understand why you'd unnecessarily say "never dropped" when there is obvious evidence of a driveway drop.

    Ah, I wasn't looking at the end. Thought you were talking about the master cylinder side, where they curl in toward the bar.
    Polemic....look it up

    Why would you bother?@ I think everyone should be encouraged to do that to them.

    Oh you mean to buy the cremated remains? Well. . . Maybe if there was a market for them like that. Some sort of crowd source venture?

    Only thing that made me feel nostalgic for my old 750 version was the speedo.
    Good basis for a restorer. But don't sink too much on a 400. Grand?

    Tops I would've thought. Not as bad as the freak with the Popup 750 though!

    This would have to be right at the stiff end of the wedge if not completely dropped off the end into the abyss
