Ya know what Joe Walsh sez--

Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through
I can't complain but sometimes I still do
Life's been good to me so far

Amen to that, Joe!

And since this is the "CL Find of the Day" thread, check this out:

OK, maybe he's a little high on the price. Or, he could just be a little bit, well, high. $2800 for a shabby-lookin 12-yr-old KLR...um, yeah.

At least he's negotiable

Nah, he just lengthened the exhaust when he replaced the power bands. You can really get a lot out of a KLR with those mods.

Now, for a CL find, this is in Tucson, AZ (so am I).

http://tucson.craigslist.org/mcd/3713285646.html

It doesn't run, and it appears bone stock. I'd have to get the carb cleaned, maybe rebuilt, new battery, and I have no idea what else. He's way high on price right now, I'm thinking if I low ball him he might sell, but what's a good low ball? I was going to offer him $1800.

If it has a plate, then $1,800 isn't bad. Without a plate, worth $1,500, at most, IMO.

Before I can move stuff into the shed I have I still gotta get it situated. AND I'm traveling a bunch here real soon...
So, is la casa de Buzz a little greener these days?

No plate. It's AZ, so not having a plate isn't a big issue, but not having a brake light or other road going stuff is kind of a pain in the ass.

street legal then offer 1800 and he'll counter 2000 and its a deal. But it's dirt model, so it's only worth 1500 or so in that brokeass condition. Actually just a battery and pull the bowl and clean/lube the needle seat and i bet your good to go.
