Someone buy this before I do

http://worcester.craigslist.org/mcy/3442916654.html

FOR SALE : 1986 GSXR750 , 23K , Vance and Hines exhaust , Solo seat cover .. Bike is in great condition for being 26 years old. The bike has been garaged for 10 years and will need to be gone through such as .. Tires , Battery , Carbs tuned , chain ect .. The things you would expect from sitting that long.. This was the first year the Gsxr model was ever sold in the US and is a true collectors bike .. 1,500 obo







No affiliation etc etc. It's a damn clean bike for a killer price.

Double cradle frames suck
Real GSX-Rs stopped after 1992.

I called and texted him no replie as of yet. That is the identical bike I bought in 1987 as an 86 leftover.

Spoke to the owner today. I am supposed to go look at it tomorrow. I will buy it if I get the wife's approval. Cheers, Bobby

Re: Someone buy this before I do

Thanks, but I probably shouldn't get it or won't get it since the wife says I need to sell some of my toys before I buy another. But I am still going to look, well 99% chance I will.

Re: Someone buy this before I do

Holy cow, that is a tough pill to swallow. Know the feeling with regards to the WIF. Do what you gotta do...but that is a NICE bike. I know it's said, "another one will come around" but opportunity only knocks once. So, play on!

Ramp is in the truck and the straps are too. Most likely go look at it, fall in love again and maybe I can strike a deal.

Re: Someone buy this before I do

It's gonna be tough to sleep...at least it would for me because I would be so excited.

I paid $3K for my first bike without any hesitation. The seller saw my reaction and knew I was serious.

Don't tease yourself if you have no intention...can you walk away without feeling like it shouldn't be yours?

See why it's gonna be a restless night?

Re: Someone buy this before I do

I don't suppose you had a picture of the right-side of the bike, to make an overall determination (initially based on images, of course).

the CL ad had an image of the right side and it looked mint to me


My tech/best friend had an 86 just like that when i met him he went to MMI the next spring and had a friend loop it for him.

Wow! Can't go wrong with the price...if ONE has $1500 to spare that would be ideal. Let's hope for some good news today.
