Barko1....I think you need this

like having a mini T500 Titan or a bigger X6 Hustler

1972 Suzuki 350 Hustler motorcycle. needs work / restore
engine needs to be rebuild. very rare. collectors wanted


Has been flagged for removal. Sometime I may get a T500. In my youthful days I had one that I had modified to Suzuki road race specs complete with expansion chambers. I think they must have been about 130 db when on the pipe. Ran like a dog until 6500 then hold on and get ready to shift again

I've seen that ZRX12R in Castle Rock, Denver, and on I-25 in between quite often...assuming there aren't many identical bikes around.

Green is the most common ZRX color thru the years....I'd bet you saw another one, this one is in Steamboat and was ridden locally. He's only had it since last Spring, so maybe the previous owner was on the front range.

If I had to buy a practical sport bike tomorrow, it'd be a FZ-something. I like that paint job, F800GS'ish. What's that thing on the bottom right side of the swing-arm that basically looks like a chain?

So one of you should buy my FZ6 and make everyone happy. Good deal this week as a R100GS has made an appearance on the scene.

I first viewed it on my iPhone and totally thought it was an F800. Now on a laptop I can see it's not but I can see where BMW stole the idea.

Yep Bumblebee The XR650L marvel machine might be up for sale soon.

Don't worry, yours is stored lovingly in the trailer with the GB and the XR.

torque arm holding the caliper assembly


I haven't seen a bumblebee FZ1 in a while, and this one sure derailed my ZRX search (though I was looking at first gen FZ1's too).

I'm calling them in the morning

After sleeping on it I think the Bumblebee I was looking at is a no go. It would be a really cool bike to own but too redundant to what I already have.

I came to my senses in my sleep.
