Here's another one from the same shop.

I was at "The Old Motorcycle Shop" in Calgary on Friday, I've bought a few bikes from them and they're currently doing some work to my '68 Norton.

The '85 is fairly decent, but nowhere near 12 grand nice...I guess you can initially ask whatever you want, aim high.

They recently brought in a large stash of '85-'91 Oilers, complete bikes and lots of parts. I thought the '89 was really good value for 3 grand, it's pretty clean.
There's also 7/11 with an aux. cooler mounted in the rear, that I need to take a closer look at.

Phil the owner, says that he's motivated to move these out, they don't want to sit on them all winter.
I'm going back down tomorrow, and will have more time to sort through the boxes of parts...always hoping to find something sexy.

Why are they asking so much for a bike from 1985? Is there that many people that want old bikes?
Where to begin??
'85 was the first year for the GSXR 750, it is generally accepted be a significant part of sport bike evolution. The 1100 came out in '86.


As they aren't making them anymore, a seller can ask whatever they want. The actual selling price will often be dictated by the market.


Yes, some of us still enjoy the old Oilers and have a passion for them. Some of us still race them too...a few of us even manage to go fast.

Cheers,
Scott

What mirrors are on that blue 750K on Kijiji?

I thought the J's and K's always had the flat mirrors, I much prefer the ones in the pic.

Are they from a country other than UK/Oz?

Funny, I never knew anyone in Canada used craigslist. This Canuck doesn't advertise on trader.com... I would have already seen these.



The '85 is listed for $8995 on kijiji click
