But I decided to see what the deal was, and the guy was out in his garage cleaning another bike, so I went up and asked him if he was really throwing out the Radian. He said yes, it had been sitting forever and he'd just bought a new Harley (the new bike he was cleaning) and his wife was making him get rid of it. So I pushed it down the street on flat tires, ran back and forth from my parent's house to his a few times grabbing all the parts, and after about 40 minutes of effort and $0 spent, I had a motorcycle!
