        Looks like it needs some work but hey it might have fresh bearings!

        With the chrome bits in that shape I would consider a blacked-out look I think that would be cool.

          I'm going to get a mechanically running perfect and probably sell it cheap. I know a guy that bought another one from me that doesn't mind the cosmetics as much He put sidecars on bikes.The tins are in good shape so I could always sell those and put on some cheap dented up scrape tens for a true wrap bike look that would appeall to some people.

                So with the cost of fuel to get it, how much do you now have in your $500 bike?

                    $340 gas and $31 trailer rental so $871.

                        I can't believe it only cost $30 to rent a trailer, you get the friends & family discount?

                        Oh, good score by the way. Call you the Yamaha-Wisperer... lol

                          $14.95 a day for u haul motorcycle trailer ...light easy to tow and readily available ...can't beat it. I will likely never buy a trailer when I can rent them $15 a day and never have to store or maintain one....

                            That is very affordable, wow! I would've guessed it would cost much more, good to know.

                            How many motorcycles can you sell in a year in Indiana?
                            There are no limitations or requirements for the number of motorcycles that you sell in a calendar year. However, you must have a motorcycle wholesaler license if you attempt to sell more than five motorcycles in a calendar year.

                          That's awesome! That's a great deal you couldn't pass up!

                            I'm not aware of any limitation of vine and selling motorcycles in Indiana. I simply have a motor vehicle with a title that I sell privately. No agencies involved

                              I have seven of my 10 insured plated and licensed. I go through progressive have full coverage with only 250 deductible. All kinds of extra insurance on the bikes and on my phone and gear etc and it's about $400 a year total for all 7. The two 1979 XS 1100s and my purple 2000 Road Star And the newest one don't have insurance but the black 79XS does have antique vintage plate because it's like $20 a year
