Wow, you Boomers astonish me. $33,000 to restore a 40 year old Norton, NOT including the cost of the bike?

It wouldn't be worth it to ME, but I'm glad it's worth it to YOU. Thanks for supporting a small craftsman style shop that appears to do exceptional work. Also for keeping cool bikes on the road. Seriously.

judging by the remote shock reservoir on the front frame downtube, the mono-shock swingarm, etc - I'm guessing it's an '82 IT250

1982 Yamaha Enduro 80 mini bike - $500 (Conifer)

http://boulder.craigslist.org/mcy/4263079207.html

Classic 1980's Yamaha mini bike. Anyone who had their first bike in the 80's will remember this machine. This one is in exceptional condition, almost looks like new. Revisit your youth or show a new generation what you had to learn on.
I dunno about any of you guys but this is the bike I learned to ride on (well a little older one that was more of a gold color), somebody else buy this thing so I don't

Good catch Blake, I didn't even pick up the fact that it was an IT, now that I look closer under the layers of crap I recognize it as one. They were damn good woods bikes in their day.

I learned how to ride on a 1976 GT80 in silver.

Yeah Matt does do fantastic work , the one for sale is waaaaaaay over price , it really doesn't have much trickery to it , basic mikuni carb conversion with a Corbin seat . Lovely bike but I have more CNW on mine and wouldn't dream of asking half of what he is !

Norton

I'm just amazed at what is happening to prices on 850's and similar era "collectible" bikes. That R90S I posted earlier, bidding went to just under 25k and did not meet reserve!

Lot of cheap money sloshing around out there trying to find value. I accidentally stumbled across some auctions for early 70's 911 Porsches. Not even the desirable ones (911E & T) Holy Cow! Couldn't give them away a few years ago. Cannot imagine what a 72 911S would fetch or god forbid a true RSR.

Hate to say the bubble word but these prices are going parabolic.

EG:

1973 Triumph Hurricane. I remember drooling over these back in the day. But $38k????

Close but no cigar....the rear brake stay makes it a YZ, IT's backing plate slid onto a swing arm tab, lacks the IT's quick release axle and snail adjuster, yellow side panel plastic under blue paint is YZ, tank is also yellow with black rattle can paint although plastic may not be original, no boost bottle indicates more like a 1979 maybe 1980...
I just picked up a 6 speed IT250 motor with fresh bore and Bruce Sass port job, complete front end, speedo and both wheels, etc for $25, looking for a smaller current chassis to drop it into

Yep my first bike was a '73 or '74 GT 80.

Actually I think you got it right RF, "$1200 too high" - he's only asking $1000

Don't think I would drive Denver to Ridgeway and back if it was free, maybe if he paid me $200 and a case of beer though

Must be end of the year clearance, looks like he dropped it $500. Maybe he wasn't overwhelmed with calls on it like he thought.


It's not even worth parting out from what I can see, I've seen nicer bikes hauled to the dump.
