What is it worth?
« on: Apr 20, 2017, 22:29:20 »
1975 Cb750 supersport. No key, turns over. Hasn't ran for the usual 15-20 years. Rats chewed off the air filters. It's listed for a $1000. I think that's a bit on the high side. Has a small dent in front fender and tank. Any ideas?

I'd say that's a bit high with no key and been stored outside in the weather for 20 years.
750 or so.

If $2-600 off the purchase price is going to make or break your "build" plan, I would suggest rethinking the plan.

If you search around, there is ZERO reason that you can not find a bike that is running/riding with less risk in the $2-3000 range.
While yes that is more then a grand, in the long run it is MUCH cheaper.
Actually it isnt even the long run, it is the short run if the plan actually includes riding a motorcycle.

How about you fill us in on where you are, what you have to spend(right now, not the im going save $36 a week) and what you really want to do with a motorcycle.

Do you want to ride?
Have an endless project?
Tinker and "learn"
End up on pipeburn?
Create an art project?

This is true to a point, but 2-600 dollars can make all the difference if you have to stick to a budget on a build.
2-600 bucks in your pocket means nicer shocks, nicer gauges, etc etc.
There's no sense in overpaying for a bike.

Whether getting a solid bike is cheaper or not is debatable and dependent on skill level and what the plan is.
Toss some clubmand and pods on it and paint it flat black? Yes spend more on a nicer bike, it saves time, money and headache.
New suspension, forks, wheels, seat, subframe, etc? Why bother with all the nice stuff that's just going to get tossed, buy a POS with a good engine.

just IMHO
