    Classic Custom Bobber! Bargain Priced! - $1699 (El Paso (East))

    https://elpaso.craigslist.org/mcy/5985242768.html



    I have an awesome custom looking bobber at a bargain price. This is a 1978 Suzuki GS1000 that I recently purchased and planned to keep for a lifetime but the costs to meet Texas state inspection is something I can't afford right now being that the rest is so strict, so it would just be sitting in the garage. This is a great bike if you plan to register in New Mexico or a state without an inspection. Runs and drives like a champ. Does have a valve cover gasket leak, that will need to be addressed. Very strong powerful 1000cc motor. If you are handy man, you can bring this bike to Texas safety standards and fix the gaskets for $30 on your own time and have a nice bobber for ages. I'm sad to let it go, but hopefully it goes to a home that'll have it on the streets legally in no time. Runs and drives as is and clean title out of New Mexico.


    Ok, I've seen some tastefully modified bikes, but that's not what happened here!
    Wouldn't the forks twist without the fender, and the rear end eventually buckle inward?
    There's a lot more than a gasket to get this thing ready for the road, even in New Mexico!

    I'm guessing titles not in his name and out of state = big bucks to get bonded title ( I know from experience)
    texas inspection is ludicrously simple - I've never even taken the three bikes I've had inspected off the back of the truck

    tires, brake lights, horn , lights and that's it

    two of mine are also (currently) title only ..... no inspection needed plus 1 is vintage plated (again no inspection needed)

    so I suspect there's more to this than he's revealing ..... a lot more

    I dont see any front brake lever, and maybe not any front brake caliper. Might that be one of the pesky Texas requirements?

    You're right about the front brake but the rear caliper, rear master, and lever are all there - just hard to see against the black wheel

    Keep seeing this ad in MC's and have a "peeve" about all the misposted crap like kids tricycles and whatnot already , anyhow, Think these are actually German U-boat pants despite being posted as "WW2 leatherGerman Motorcycle Riding pants"...Judging by the tag maybe reproduction (?):

    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/m...953517573.html
    I even went "wait, for $40 maybe I could dye them but they have goofy laces and are $50 AND for riding in U-boats (submarines) ...

    Oh, not super funny, besides the price but incase anyone wondered here's how a Ninja 250 looks as "cafe racer":


    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/d...982407154.html
    Just interesting funny. Besides the price.

    Of course there were more , one '89 honda hawk "Museum quality" I daydreamed of e-mailing/ calling stating ," why yes I am actually from the musuem and we'd like to purchase it for ..."

    Lots of mostly Harley ads with bikini chics posing...One had the model then a random pic of an older woman holding a chiwawa , not even the bike in the pic (LOL, they know)...
    Gave me an idea though, next time at beach I could ask a hottie to Please do me a favor and let me take a pic of her on/ next to my MC, great conversation starter , maybe(?)...

    There's an ad with a dude wearing riding leather but english on the ad ain't so good , and it states, "always treat her like a lady, only use [whichever odd] oil ..." But the guys might be cool so can't post pic/link...just funny after all the chic posing on bike ads was all...

    There's a Harley frame for $4000 but the bike is complete just disassembled (FULLY, pics of little bits) and no time to finish LOL, guy is probably a total goof...
    Oh a GS 550 with 2700 put into cafe rear and GSXR front for $2000 ( could have some affiliation here though so...)

    Why you think those were U boat pants?
    Of course they would be reproduction, leather don't last so long.
    The 250cc Ninja-“Cafe Racer”-amazing how newbees think their 250cc is more valuable than a 600-1100cc.
