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 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.
