Wow, that looks like a great buy. I don't think that will be advertised too long, good luck.

The center stand looks droopy. There's $12.00 for a new spring right there you can knock off the price—more if you cost out your labor. There might even be a seizing bushing—entirely too dangerous. Knock off $100. :giggles

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

A friend of mine used to sell classified ads for the paper in Madison, WI. People would dictate their ads to him over the phone. Every used-car ad, the customer would say "Runs good" at the end. My friend would ask if they wouldn't prefer to say "Runs well." Nope -- it had to say "Runs good."

So I talked to the guy yesterday afternoon. Asked quite a few questions. He had the bike 2-3 years. He didn't remember anything about spline lube when he put the new rear tire on last year.Other than that it seemed like he maintained the bike well. Long story short, someone bought it before I could get there to see it.
