So he has owned it for 5 years. Kept it in his house.
Never rode it.
Whats the point?
Oh yeah, to make money....
:smt013 What a waste.

And now sell it to the next guy so he can put it in his house and resell for another 10 grand on top.

Hopefully his starting it hasn't done more harm than good due to what are obviously knackered crack seals and other air leaks after sitting forever. I bet when it was started at the shop they revved the hell out of it just to hear it sing. That won't have helped. At this point it will be a museum piece unless someone wants to dig into it and throw a bundle of $$ at it to bring it back to life. Engine, brakes, bearings, etc. This seems like the same old story we always hear. Great bike, no mileage, can't ride it without serious work first. Bet he regrets turning down offers at $25K last time. I doubt those buyers will bother with him again.

I was selling the bike because I lost my storage however I have since secured a spot in a friends collection for the bike so I no longer feel like I need to sell it so offers under 25k will not be considered.


I thought it was kept in his house?

She gone.

See it in 5 years listed at $35000.
Hope his ex takes every cent and leaves him only a 50cc scooter.

Did all the Canadian bikes get the front turn signal blanking plates?
