I personaly would look for something older and cooler, ducati, triumph, norton, bsa or a nice honda 4 from the 70's. thats a lot of stuff to throw money at for a bike thats not even 20 years old

Always remember,if the bike looks like a dog, it probably is a dog. Like its external appearance ,the mechanicals are probably just as neglected.The lack of servicing and maintainance will cost you dearly in replacment parts when it comes to fixing up any project bike.Be afraid,very afraid!

Usually I would say listen to yout heart but in this case I would listen to the predominant tone of the reponses.

Some cult bikes are best left to the zealots.

I'm impressed by your deep and wide ranging knowledge of moto-trivia, brother!



Yes, the Kawasaki Manudo was a V4-- Suzuki siamesed the bores to adopt the oval piston technology of the 1979 NR500.



I should know what I'm talking about-- my daily commuter is a Vulcan 750 twin motor in a 1968 Amen Savior frame.

I think you need to get back on your medication. Clearly, the voices have returned. Maybe you're the "mechanic" who is selling the bike?

To quote Fred Sanford: "Are you crazy?"



Financial decisions like these will keep you on a 1985 Shadow for another 20 years.

It's absolutly worth $500. It'll probably only cost $50. or so to scrap it out and you'll still be able to pocket $450. Plus whatever the salvage yard pays out per pound for scrap metal. If someone was paying me $500 totake that POS to the boneyard I'd do it. Even after I rented a truck I'd pocket at least $400...

Default Re: Too many Bike/Life Choice Questions.

Paint the whole bike silver with a rattlecan, (like Billy Pilgrim's boots) and only ride it at night. Wear a black cape & jodhpurs. Change your name to Migelito. Do not walk, but "leap" everywhere you go. Tatoo the Virgin of Guadalupe on your chest. Sport a black pencil thin moustache and soul patch. Have a fencing scar. Lisp when you say "moto guzzi".
