Flagged for removal now! Maybe it didn't have a phone number or something, that sucks! Didn't seem like a scammy price.

I must be getting cynical... I see these "project bike" ads, and the first thing that pops into my mind is "piece of shit money-pit" or "Alter metal recycling"

And I have to keep trying to remember that I'm saving up for a (hopefully) move.

Cause I'd buy them all and pack the garage full.

Than I'd sell them one by one over the next year for half of what I paid to get them.

Than I'd take that money and buy some other piece, and sell that off six months later for half of what I paid.

My money pit bought Dec 1 (found on craigslist , who'd a thunk it)
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=412047

I've done the iyeager plan before, about to start down that slippery slope again
It does actually run and I took it or test ride though.
If I put a grand into it I might be able to sell it for 500...

Ah, yes. The Yeager Half-Life Investment Strategy.



Come to think of it, that's pretty much what I've done with my retirement account this year.
