Well I've decided to finish up each BW and get them running and riding before selling the balance
I keep thinking any man can clean a carb and get a dirt bike running but it seems monumental for most of the people inquiring off my CL ad
I have a few forum members I will still work with in getting them a BW350 either from my collection or elsewhere so feel free to stay in touch if you ever decide to pull the trigger on a BW350
Honestly theres a huge demand way more interest than I expected I doubt they will last long once they are turn key ready to roll
I have clear clean titles on all of these BW's
Prices range from $2200 for one of the BW200's to around $4500 on the BW350's
My interests have changed and I'm onto other projects but I'm keeping 3 BW350's for my personal stash
Based in Arizona

All I can say is WOW!
Very impressive lineup of Big Wheels.
Good luck with your sale(s)!
WoW, that is an incredible collection. Could anyone else have that many in one place at one time.

Amazing Fred. There are a few here on the right coast who would love to find BWs of this quality. I would make a suggestion to them, me included, to get our acts together and make Fred do another east coast run. These are all over 30 years old and I don't expect Yamaha will be making any more of these real fat bottom gals.
From my own personal experience with my BW350 I can tell you these are just as easy to work on as our TWs and the 350 has the same make carb that may or may not be just a little larger. As Fred mentions the BW350 is a heavier unit and you won't be tossing it around like a TW but it sure can give the seat of your pants a thrill you will never feel on a TW. Let the bidding begin if you really are serious. A road trip for Fred or one of us on this side could be in the future.

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

I "may" be interested in an east coast interception, depending on timing. Great idea GaryL. Also, that is an amazing lineup of clean and rare bikes that look like a whole lotta fun
TW200 - The Goat
KTM 300 - Orange Dragon
Way too many past bikes and builds to list. I won't bore you. Questions? Just ask.
I have several messages I need to return but I'm on the road all day today and a good portion of this week driving in snow storms in Arizona! I'm back in Winslow AZ today delivering a TW but I'll reply to all as soon as I get a chance! Thanks!!!
I actually plan to buy a new trailer out of Indiana so that would get me half way back east already
