Can't count the number of times people would ask me at the gas station, "Hey is that HOUSEPAINT???"

Rookie! You should have used a roller. It would have hidden the brush strokes.

1984 Renault R5 Turbo II - $8500 (Alpharetta)

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/4242278730.html



1984 Renault R5 odometer: 3600


I`ll be the first to admit that I know very little about this car, so questions are probably best answered by internet unless regarding particular examples` condition. I acquired this with a piece of property this time last year (when photos were taken)

The woman I bought the property from was a friend of my ex wife who was into "the horse thing" and all that that implies. This lady was a Belgian national, and had been here illegally for almost 30 years! supposedly it was once new, and owned formerly by former rally driver (whose name I can`t remember) I had to get a bonded title through my insurance company, because the car doesn`t have a VIN number? I looked everywhere, just not there.

It`s still at the property (that I`ve now sold) and needs to go. If you have any stupid questions to ask, I`ll either discount the car in proportion to the amount of time and pain your presence causes me, or simply go Parisian on you and refuse to sell it. I honestly don`t give a shit if it sells or not, but it`s going to move from the property by 3:00pm tomorrow or i don`t get my $$.

He doesn't give a shit if it sells, but he jumped through the hoops to get a bonded title.

But that looks uncomfortable, and the exhaust could start a grass fire. Where is the front brake? Is that drum slung under the front of the engine an oil cooler? What is all that crap on the floorboard? Issat a spare can of oil and an air compressor? At least the battery is easy to get at!

I am sure people ask him what the hell he is thinking everywhere he goes!

Husky DRZ? What?

Husqvarna SMR 610 - $4200 (gainesville fl)



Street legal and ready to go. I have the original factory MSO. Bring it to tag office and your ready to ride. Currently has brand new enduro tires on it. I have a set of street tires that will come with the bike. Has a Pro circuit pipe and Brembo brakes. This is no crap DRZ. Pulls strong and ride great. I have a spare front rotor and a few spare front sprockets to go also. This is a real supermoto, not a conversion.

It will need a spring for the kickstand, just broke off.

call or text only, if its online its available
I am not desperate. This is a rare find. No payments. No offers without seeing the bike in person.
