How are these buggers?
bw200.jpg
Guy is asking $1400 and says there are only about 4 hours on the engine
I dont know much about them aside from they are not road legal which dampers the ease of use for me as I need to go 2 miles to get on trails from my house,
This one looks pretty clean,
Whats a fair price for one of these ?

that thing is rad. I see a few pop up around here in pittsburgh, but they are always way more, at 1400, i would bite on it if it were local to me, the ones around here sell for 2-3k and dont last very long.

I called and emailed the guy with no answer or reply as of yet,
Lets see what happens.
This one is a little closer to you. 1985 Yamaha BW200
There was a lot 5 or 6 in the central Ohio a few months ago. I was interested in the BW for a while. Then I bought my second TW.
I found a few on CL, Price range from $5000 to $1500 OBO. These are KY., Tenn, Ohio, Va. Penn.
Good luck

If it's in nj I'm buying it! It's like a big fluffy minibike that will go thro n over anything even saved my bacon a few times where if I had been riding my dirtbike up the hill it would of caught the deep rain rut and I'd have gone over.It won't go fast but it makes you feel all warm n fuzzy inside I call it the hero complex when I ride that bike all grins n smiles an no wrongs. 1400 is a very good price I'd love to ride a 350 but not liking what people sell em for..the tw is alot more practical being it's legal n bw isnt.

No skin off my teeth,
If the guy gets back in touch with me Ill go and look at it,
If not,
Ill keep looking for the 1970 FLH I always wanted,
I currently have a couple bikes and really don't need it,
I just want it for a couple of years ! ! !

Sure, if you are 1/4 the size of LittleTommy......or 1/3 the size of me....or 1/2 the size mhomadness (Mike)...or 3/4 the size just about anyone else.

I loved the 1980 CT110 we had, but it was small.

BTW, if anyone wants a CT90...I know of a fellow forum Misfit that has 4 of them.....FOUR of them....sitting in his backyard shed, in NorCal. :eek:

Hey!!!:eek:;) I had one too and it hauled my fat butt around pretty nicely!!:D And I was a lot bigger than I am right now!!:p

LT, have you checked.....up in there.....to see if that CT90 is still "hauling your fat butt around pretty nicely" ??? :eek:
I had the 110 at the time like you did. A bit more powerful than the 90's but NOT much!! ;)
