Only $7,000. If you wanted fenders, a fork brace, decent air filters, turn signals, an actual brake light, a proper license plate mount, or a decent muffler not held on with hose clamps, that would be extra.
You forgot the kitchen cabinet hinge as seat mounts, and rear sets mounted with what looks to be self tapping screws... wow

I like that orange 750. I think the seat needs a re-shape, and it needs a front fender, but I otherwise like it. Not for 7K, but I do like it. If it hadn't come from a "professional builder" I'd call it a decent effort.

* He did the rear brake correctly.

* It has rearsets.

* It doesn't have clubmans.

* Knee dents are a lifestyle choice.

* Pods are easily replaced.

Not sure if he lowered it. Maybe.

Q: Why is shipping $300 on a pair of tires? That seems a little steep. Dec-05-10
A: The price on our website is $600 with flat rate shipping within the lower 48 states including shipping /handling/packing/insurance. On ebay we must pay additional fees for listing and 11% once it is sold. We did not however raise the price on ebay to cover these fees. The bottom line total price is what you need to consider. We feel $600 including shipping is a fair price for these rare tires and we have sold the few sets we had for this price, so we have found buyers are who are willing to pay this price to get a matched set of vintage tread tires which are no longer available. We are down to this last set...once they are gone...they are gone for good! Thanks for looking!
