The only thing I ever did to my bike was put gas and oil in it; put on a few sets of tires.

I always wanted (still do) an early 70s TS400. What a sweet looking bike with gobs of tq. Plus, I never saw one go wrong even back in the day when we all rode WFO everywhere everyday.

This Honda XR 650R is hands down the nicest XR650 listed. Owned by certified Honda Mechanic. Only 30hours on new rebuild! Lots of extras: Full FMF Power Bomb Exhaust, New Excel Rims with new Maxxis tires, Scott triple clamp, heavy duty skid plate, etc. Must see!!!

This also comes with original gas tank, shrouds and seat all in excellent condition.

5 large?
He will never sell it for that. Hell, he wouldn't sell it in NM for 3500 unless he got lucky. It IS posted here too BTW. Oh, and it isn't plated so there's that which also lowers its value considerably.

81 Honda CB 750 Custom - $800 (Denver)



So I did the dumbest thing you can to do a vehicle, I ran it without oil. A few days ago, I went to give it an oil change, and after I put the drain plug back in, I forgot to put new oil in. I fired it up and let it idle for a couple minutes while I went inside to grab my helmet. When I got to the bike, it was still running but I saw the oil light was on and I realized what I had done. So I shut it off and filled it with oil. It started right up and I rode it a couple blocks before it started to lose power and it eventually died. I gave it another oil change and now it will only start if I push-start it. It has little to no power. Basically, I'm pretty sure the engine needs to be rebuilt. I am moving out of state in a week and have two options. I can sell this here on craigslist by Friday (June 21st) or I will be forced to sell it to Steeles Cycles for them to part it out. The body is super clean. And it was running quite well before my effort to change the oil. I would love to sell it to someone that is capable of repairing it and getting it back on the road to enjoy it as much as I did. It rode super smooth. I'm gonna miss her...The carbs were cleaned a couple months ago, seat is brand new and I have a clear title in hand. My price is negotiable. Make me an offer. Contact Chad at: 3zero3-927-8zero6zero

I still wonder why all these people think a total RAT is worth thousands and when you post something nice for a fair, realistic price they try and talk you down to nothing. Criagslist is in its own little world sometimes!

2012 Christini AWD 450 DS - $6400 (NE Albuquerque)

http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/mcy/3886763979.html

These have always fascinated me. I know the owner, nice guy and its a sweet machine.



For sell a 2012 Christini 450 DS AWD all wheel drive in Albuquerque NM asking $6400. it has a CRF450X stock exhaust (5hp right there no more catalytic converters in the way), acerbis hand guards, IRC trials tires on it now, can throw in the original knobbies also. extra rear sprocket, newer chain 2-3 rides on it. have all the lights and mirrors (they are just off the bike). the all wheel drive can be turned off and on with a lever on the handle bars.

I might consider trades for a two stroke, Husqvarna wr300, 300 beta or gasgas maybe a ktm, as long as i can plate them in New Mexico. I also would trade for a Christini 300, or 1998 or newer land cruiser.

bike has 16xx on the odometer.

No Emails, no text, serious buyers only no tire kickers or joy rides. 5O5-2six3-87five2

Hey Sniper, I got it all back together again, fired it up yesterday, sounds MEAN. Lots more details to finish before a test ride, maybe today. Hopefully it won't buck me off, I'll try to hang on for 8 seconds.

1986 KLR 250. Yes, it's mine. Great little bike but the wife wants something a little newer and lighter with the magic button. Lots of scratches, but runs well with a new battery and like new tires. I'm about 10 miles east of Parker.
