My garage occupants

Postby none » Fri Oct 18, 2019 10:54 pm

With weather turning cold, it is time to shop for used bikes.
Picked up a nearly stock 2001 SV650S, minor body work scratches,
needs carb sync, oil/filter/coolant/brake fluid change, 17k miles. $1250 USD. Lots of potential.

Last month, $1500 cash for 2002 R1150RS with 22k mi., comes with fancy saddle.. small dent in the front wheel, needs some ABS fixing.

Nice selection. Pretty much all bases covered with that lot.

Cheers,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

There are far worse problems to have than owning different motorcycles.

Nice collection with the latest ones at least for very little, keep the photos coming if you get an electric bike too.

I am curious about the Honda. 175cc, 250cc or 35cc?
There would appear to be a surfeit of prolixity and sesquipedalian content today please do not use a big word when a singularly un-loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity

It's a 1972 CL350 Scrambler, the OEM badge from the sidecover is missing.
It needed a clutch cable, tires & tubes, seat could use a new foam cover.
It's was a $400 purchase along with trade of some welding equipment that I didn't use anymore.
