    I hate sellers who don't tell you what they are wanting for it. So what do you do? Start at $1 , then $2 , a couple thousand times till you get what he wants. It's stupid not to at least throw out a high asking price to see if it's even in my ballpark budget. That said, Storz stuff, while it may be quality, it is extremely over priced. Geek's offer of $7k is probably a good ballpark.

    Overpriced infers that the parts quality does not justify the price. This is not true, stuff like their alloy tanks and such are competitively priced. Are there cheaper parts that replicate the look? Yes but you aren't getting an alloy tank bolt on for a fuel injected sportster for that cheaper price - you are getting a glass tank with a liner where you have to adjust your own fittings. Storz sells everything separate so you can pick and choose the parts. For what they charge for ceriani forks you could buy a basic set of ohlins and I'd much rather have those.

    The he bike in question I suspect was built in 1992 as a display for the dealer to sell storz parts in the pre internet days and that's likely why it was done on an 883, because it was intended to sit as a display and eventually get parted out. It's premium as a collectible is probably as a dealer display or promotional item and not as a motorcycle. The dealer probably got a good offer on it and sold it whole.

    If you buddy calls, ask him to get the whole origin story - I'd love to know why some built such a weird bike.

    Storz is the American distributor for Ceriani, so they are going to get full suggested retail for them, no discounts.

    True they are the importer and OH by the way when you call and ask for seals to fit the screw on gold cap forks they sold for years....So Sorry we don't sell those seals anymore please buy a newer set of forks...
    Okay thanks down to the local motion (bearing) supply house to match them up....

    I think you can still get seals and small parts for the vintage forks. Those are the forks I have. They are the distributor for the new Ceriani's.

    I got a hold of the seller. Bike was bought new from Southside in Cleveland and was converted to Storz buy them. He evidently has the paper trail. I didn't want to irritate him (and ask why such a weird build) in case someone here was interested in it, because he said he would sell for $5500(US).

    I messaged him about not letting anyone know what he wanted for it. He expects you show up and make an offer, but he's 3K miles away. Let me know when it sells so I can message him and offer him $7K.

    Ya know, i can think of a lot of things I would rather spend $5k on but for some one who wants a good looking quality street tracker with minimal maint investment it would be well bought. I'd rather some newbie buy this than what dipshits are calling brat these days.

    I would say that is more worth $5500 than the 65 Sportster is for $4k.
