    so sad. GLWS.

    By the way - I think you need a better picture. the "chopper" forks look might scare away a few buyers.

    Agreed. A better series of pics will go up this weekend. Yeah, sad but hey, they come and they go.

    I'm selling to raise money to buy another bike. A 2003 BMW F650GS. It's one I've done service on for a customer. I know the bike well and the price is very fair.

    I like those rotax BMWs - very sensible bikes.

    I've updated the post with much better pics, and I brought the price down a couple notches.

    Geeto67, according to the research I've done on this model, the original F650 engine was indeed made by Rotax but starting in 2001 BMW brought the whole operation back in house.

    It's back up for sale.

    Warm weather is on the way in a couple of months, sooner here in NC, so I figured I'd list it .... again.
    I just don't need a third bike in the shed so bye bye.

    Nice bike! decent price. Unbelievable price if you consider the work you've put into it.
    GLWS.
    (I've never sold a bike on craigslist but shit I'd list that at $3500 or else you'll get the scum that offer you $1000-1500 for it.)

    compared to some of the shit out there for twice that money.


    What are you working on now? Are you vlogging it, too?
