Ben hit it on the head, thats why I said $800 IF he has clean title in hand.

I was wondering about the rear tire too... What is up with that.. 'Needs a front tire'- hell man, it needs a whole lot more than that!

Meanwhile Huzo thinks you're a nancy if you dont fly-n-ride to pick it up and ride it across the country with a pocket full of spanners! Man up!

... and lastly, whoever said the seller is delusional is the official winner of the thread, perfect answer!
Official..? :popcorn:

Fair Price?  No.

Have ridden and worked on a few T5's. Find them less nimble that the T3's. They perhaps have more rake in the steering, longer CAL frame?....dunno.

16" front wheel?

They have, I think, the mid length swingarm, with a "bent" LHS tube, and yes, they all have 16" frt wheels. Only the Series III has an 18" rear wheel; series 1 and 2 have 16" rear. Despite the 16" frt, it is  a 90 series profile, and with 38-40 psi pressure many find the stability fine. The 18" rear, 90 series profile, helps this too. All Series III's have a Lispa strg dampener, the usability of same being so-so. Not sure the bike really needs the Lispa.
