WOW! Good Job!
Posted an ad in the provincial Facebook powersport buy and sell requesting a motor for learning purposes. Low and behold someone got back to me with thisIMG_0136.JPG
WOW! Good Job!
Yamaha - 1992 TW200
BMW - 1995 R1100GS
The power of a wanted ad is amazing. I probably make more purchases due to wanted ads than I do looking for it. There are alot of people that don't want to deal with selling stuff but if they see someone looking for it they jump at the opportunity.
Yeah, paid $100 and I was just looking for any thumper motor to tear down so I can learn and take notes for when I tear down my main bike to find the source of my missing tooth. The frame is clean so that saves my $200 for an inspection, forks look in better shape same with the triples. Has the headlight mount if I want to go with it instead of my round conversion...I am very happy today. Will be stripping this baby within the next couple days. This will determine if I will be doing the ttr conversion or not.
This looks like a Canadian thread eh
gotta like that!
2019 honda cb500x
2018 honda grom
2018 suzuki dr200
the one off 1990 sea foam and grey. nice score, let alone $100.
that tank looks pristine, if you're not going to restore it to original, think of trying to sell it to someone that needs it, and get another tank to strip.
should be a great learning experience.

There is a couple bits of surface rust that I will take pics of but yes...I already have an XT350 tank that I am going to put on so I whoever needs it let me know. We can either do tradesies or straight up sell. I would like a tail piece and some blinkers I found anyone I see interested.
