    I'm pretty sure I saw that bike for sale a year or two ago... I was asking my vintage shop buddy about bike shipping but never pulled the trigger.
    I found this on craigslist in ST Louis in jan/feb of 2015 i think. I don't think I'd separate any spares I have from the original bike.

    I'm not exactly sure what it's worth, there's not too many bikes to compare it to. feedback is welcome

    Other than that, nice little muscle bike for someone.
    Yea the steering damper was put on by the previous owner. It doesn't seem to hurt things, so I left it on for looks.

    I fixed it for you.....

    It's gotta be worth a bit. It's a damn good starting point. Bottom book for the model year at the least. It's been a recent rider iirc.

    snaffle the steering damper for later....

    Nobody wants to be the one eh... Well I can say I've picked up plenty of bikes like that for 800 dollars or less. First GS I ever bought was a very nice 750, really is no offense to you but much nicer than that one, at a dealership for 700 dollars. They are abundant and affordable.

    Bullshit. It's worth at the very least twice that just for running and rideable status. I would pay 2k and feel like it was a good deal.

    Bullshit just because you say it is? Right.

    Tell me whats special about it.

    Spending 2k on a clapped out gs750 is not a smart move.

    Its not a race bike. They guy said he raced it, neat. So he rodded the piss out of it. Awesome.

    Are we buying it here or selling it?

    Pitch it at $2k or best offer and it will sell for 1750. If it weren't a fortnight before xmas eve. Unless you have a child that has written to santa asking for a GS...... In that case fuck it..... ask 3k!!! :P

    Hypothetically if this was your bike, you would seriously only take $800 for it? I highly doubt that.

    The list of mods adds up to a good chunk of money. Obviously this a ball park and clearly brand new product prices, but it's worth mentioning the list below on the low end is over $800. It also doesn't factor in the spare parts that go with it. I wouldn't take a penny less than $1500 for it. I'll buy it for that amount today if shipping is reasonable. For reals.

    Progressive rear shocks - $225-250
    Progressive front springs - $75
    All balls fork seals - $12
    braided steel front brake lines - $100+
    Avon AM26 Roadriders (bought and installed around mid August) - $175+
    All balls wheel bearings - $25
    All balls steering stem bearings - $15
    Steering damper
    Dyna coils and ignition - $150+
    custom seat
    custom exhaust
    foam air filter pods (unknown brand)
    vented crankcase
    Polaris R+R - $45+
