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.

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?

So today this guy emails me about the Sabre. I'm asking $2250. Here's our email conversation, copy pasted. :)

Buyer - "I like the bike, like the old school vibe, I have $1300, I'll come get it tomorrow. If you want to deal let me know."

Me - "Sorry, not for that price!"

Buyer - "Hey I here... I can't blame me for trying. Shoot me a counter offer"

Me - "$2400"

:p

Installed new valve cover gaskets and a fuel gauge. Newly listed with a new price tag. Amazing how many people wanted me to "take payments". lol

People be broke right now. hasn't been a great recovery. There are places that would finance custom motorcycles - if they are asking you to take payments, point them to a finance company that would help them. Then you get the bike, they get to make payments, and everybody's happy.
