Hey guys, not sure if this will take off or not, but lets see what you have traded for lately. Traded up or down or straight across, it doesn't matter. After all bartering is a part of most of our daily lives as vintage motorcycle buffs.

My first ever build- a '75 CB360:



for a truck bed full of parts, which included a '77 CB750, and XL250 motor and several Kawi front ends:

But for real, my favorite/best trade was a CB550 I picked up for $100 then traded for a Dnepr with sidecar. I later sold the Dnepr for $1400 and attached the sidecar to an XS650 I got for $100.

******The key is to have an intended goal get something you want for somethin you no longer want....It also takes a thick skin just because you heard 1,000 no way your crazy responses doesnt mean its the end you might wind up with someone coming from way outta the way to make a deal that makes everyone happy.*****

As long as you know what your after its easy to search and send an email this is my current email im sending to everyone in new england with an enclosed trailer

I traded a shitty Citizen watch my ex gave me for a complete, wiring, injectors, the works, 2005 GSX-R600 engine. Told her when she gave it to me that I'd never wear it, that I'm quite partial to my Breitling. Ended up working out for the best. Got rid of her and the watch. Came out ahead on both deals.
