    It looks like a Buell knock off and Buells are mostly fucking ugly.
    Going by the comments one might think the seller is that argumentative egg Husaberk.

    Well, it does answer some suspicions about people who add things to their watchlist. Over 1000 that are seriously unlikely to drop 400k on an old worn out Ratsun.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    I put a watch on plenty of stuff I have no immediate intention of buying. It can be good information if and when I do decide to buy.

    I add ones that I have similar to so as to guage the market for the future.

    Like that pile of BMW parts loosely assembled into a roller by a mate of mine that sold in a matter of hours for the asking price.

    Was not that long about 2K bought you a running one. ( well it was probably about 15 years but hey this is KB after all)

    Those guys are great if you want to pay around twice what something is worth.
    Their BMW 3.0csi recently had so many mistakes in the description, they clearly had no idea what it was they were selling.

    They managed to describe a four door "coupe" (go figure) 1300 four speed fiat with silver painted steel wheels, a Haynes manual and some English made spot lamps screwed to the bumper as "desirable options"

    They pulled "est 1911" out of their arses too, the company was formed in 2012 & is Australian owned.

    only the best looking car ever made by anyone anywhere. Millions of quatloos required.

    They do a nice line in vintage Porsches (which is where my interests really are) but holy shitballs Batman, eye watering money. Worth it IF done properly but honestly if you are paying Singer money, don't you get a Singer car?

    Here's my car though it might be a bit extreme for the commute....

    One of my teachers had a Dino in around '79-80, it was white & dissapeared for several months & came back in red.
    Rumour was he had invested in an unheard of fruit company called Apple that was starting to go large.

    As much as I like Bevel Drive Ducatis....24K

    The Ducati 900 GTS is one of those motorcycles that sits very close to the top of most motorcycle obsessed gentlemans wish lists. Originally released in 1978 as a replacement for the 860 GTS, the 900cc engine was made using 2 x 450cc sleeves from Ducatis single cylinder motorcycle range.
    The 900 GTS used the engine as a stressed frame-member, helping to reduce weight and increase frame rigidity. The 900cc v-twin is widely considered to be one of Ducatis finest and is certainly one of the best looking
    1978 Ducati 900 GTS at only $24,990
    Widely considered back in the day as the uglist thing they ever built.
    The whole series uses the engine as a stressed member....
    Its never been on my list other than when they were cheap a good base for a fake SS
    Rant over.

    They're a stressed member as soon as they're running, closely followed by the rider.
    You could have three nice CB750/4's for that & clean fingernails.
