Craigslist find of the day

They're both good deals. As long as you're okay with a really slow, poorly braked, anemically carbed motorcycle.

 

I've ridden a few, & they are only slightly less lousy than the R50. :P

In 100% agreement with that one comment,but they are vintage lookers if that is what you want.

With the length of those handlebars it looks like you'd have to get off the bike to make any kind of sharp turn.

Yep - that's one way to (slightly) reduce the odds of tipping it over.

 

Where's the megaphone when you need one?

"Put the welder down, and nobody gets hurt!"

With the length of those handlebars I'd want to get off the bike before making any kind of sharp turn.

Looks like fun - I find this global economy picture amusing:

I've never seen a CL with pictures of other pictures - that's funny!

 

...but if it weren't so far away I'd sure go take a look at it with maybe $300 in my pocket - how bad could it be? :rofl:

Even tempting for me to see at only about 150 miles away. I asked for some current pics to give myself a judgement call. In any case a good candidate for a parts bike at that price although saving it and again riding would be what I like to do!

$500 is not bad risk, the seats are probably worth half of that. Tempting, but i have some antique hit&miss engines i need to get rid of before another bike gets added.

Not the best picture to use when trying to sell your R1150R. :dopeslap:

 

However, he does mention it needs new tires.

 

Moron?

Indeed, but maybe he wanted to make sure a bunch of old geezers didn't start calling him. :Cool:

 

(No offense to any geezers, old or otherwise, is intended by this post.) :wave:

 

PS - you'd think the front tire would be just fine....

Elk here are a few pics. The first set are how I bought it, but after I washed it and cleaned it up and got it rolling on some old tires but not yet running

I will try to find some with the bed I built out of wood and my small WWW tires

 

Kmac, your truck is a '49, correct? We had one like that; gray, long bed, and with those big Budd wheels. Was listed as 3/4 ton but had huge springs under the bed. Put 3,000 or 3,200 lbs of livestock feed in back to deliver to one of Dad's customers, and it would ride like a luxury car! That cab would hold four men comfortably, and Dad said it was about the first pickup which had anywhere near that sort of room.

Too good to be true, I'm suspicious.

 

If I was a bit closer, I would check it out and take a bite.
