I'm guessing it's time to start a thread. Picked this bike up in October for $650. Couple dings and dents as well as some surface rust on all the chrome. Came with a title from original owner so I was going home with it no matter what. The guy started it and it sounded a little choppy so at least I knew that much. He noted that it would need the swingarm bushings replaced.
I'm going to list it here in the cafe section but I plan on keeping the original tank, covers, and seat until it's up and running again. After that I'll look into the proper tank and tail. I'm flip flopping on the final product because of all the awesome things I've seen members of this site do.
1st pic is right off the trailer. 2nd is after losing the sissy bar and some other dead weight.
Of course, after getting it back home it was impossible to start. I did manage to get it going a couple times and although it ran like ass, I circled the yard. 2 things...the swingarm had MAJOR play and when I turned left the throttle pegged wide open...holy crap!
