Nice example.  The sad part is everyone looks and says nice bike, but no one buys.  I have two I'm willing to part with, but not for $2,500 each.
If you wish to know what a man is, place in him authority.
False accusations reflect more on the accuser than the accused.
They can take everything from you, including your life, except your honor and integrity.  That you must give away.

Every once in a while, I get a wild hair to sell mine...but then, I go for a ride and immediately come to my senses... :wink: :thumb: :bow: :cool: :boozing:

The "CMV" (Current Market Value) for a nice example seems to be about $5,500-$6,500...However, a few on BaT recently sold for around $8,000

I need to replace forks seals on one, and a gear shift on the other. I love to ride them, but my below the waist appendages do not.  Doctor wants to replace both knees, and hips, so the Beast is not the most comfortable animal to ride right now. Having a hard time finding the right fork seals, and the time to do it. White Power forks seem to be completely different animals.

I think the last set of fork seals I got was from MG Cycle...Just replaced the Cam Belts, oil / filter / rear gear oil, just before the 730+ round trip flogging to Datil and back.  It ran good, and I averaged about 42 MPG at 70-75mph with camping gear loaded on the back. :thumb: :wink: :smiley:

Sounds like a great ride.  Just thinking about that ride made me want to take a long ride, and caused my knees and hips to start aching!!   :laugh: :cry: :undecided:

Yes, about 300-400 miles per day is about all I can manage these days on the ol' "Yellow Horse." 

However, when I rode to Susanville, CA in June for the NORCAL Guzzi Rally, about 1750 miles round trip, I took "Moby Dick, aka, The Great White Whale"... It is a pure pleasure to ride on longer trips! :wink: :bow: :thumb: :boozing: :cool:  Long and low....and comfortable!! :thumb: :thumb:

So does this mean you don't want mine anymore? :)

Yeah fork seals and cam belts are needed on mine and I just don't want to deal with it. But they are great to ride.
