:unsure: what do you think, any of you guys up for riding up and down that on ice?
I'd be a lot more apt to give it a shot on a trials bike than a V85!

I grew up in Minnesota, it wouldn't be the first time I've ridden a motorcycle in snow.

Yep, I make trails so people have a good place to ride.
We got a dump of powder snow last night, today sucks but it's suppose to improve, all I need is some melt or freezing rain and it will be good again lol

Don't get that, get one that was built in this century and it will have relatively current parts.
like a 4 piston front brake, it will end up being lighter and run like a clock.

That would be a good one, Neil Carter would have been the original dealer based on the address,
says he doesn't compete so I wouldn't recognize the bike as likely, looks good! you should buy it and I'll teach you to ride it.

Holy that's a nice cheap comp bike, the forks and wheels are worth that.

Steve's one of those guys who live by the best of intentions and just misses his target occasionally. He's gone from a mostly preowned/SSR/Enfield dealer to everything he's doing now. But that's it. He hasn't really grown parts, Acc. and service as quickly.

His biggest thing right now is he lost a tech that honestly is the most thorough, skilled and personable that I've ever met. It's a good thing I know where he lives

I guess it was cheap. I offered him the $2k and it was already sold. I haven't seen anything that current for under $4000.

Looks like a rolling chassis (y) more like what motor do you want to put in it,
almost anything would work including electric at the moment.
