What can I say. This was supposed to be the bike on which I made a glorious, triumphant return to track days and maybe even CMRA racing. That was a year ago. Things at the job havenít changed (no 4 tens dang it) and it has yet to see a track. Sigh. Life ainít fair.

Salvage frame, built motor, wonderful track bike. Pulling it out and listing all the goodies has me rethinking the sale, so the price is pretty firm, otherwise Iíll just keep it. So expect me to laugh uproariously when you offer $2000 in Nigerian cashierís checks. $3200 for TSBA. You could part the thing out and make money if you aren't as lazy (or time pressed) as me.

So hereís a list of goodies on it...lots more pictures here (http://web.mac.com/tschoepe/iWeb/Tschoepe_FirstServer/SV650%204%20sale.html).

RaceTech emulators and springs
Ohlins rear shock
Scotts Dampner
CGR Roll-a-Click Levers
EBC GFA Rasck Kit Pads
Vortex Clip-Ons
Vortex Gas Cap (no stinking key)
Intuitive Frame Sliders
Intuitive Swingarm Sliders
Attack Rearsets
New RK Chain (well, one year old, no hours)
Full system Yosh RS-3 High Mount
Yosh Cams (Motorcycles Unlimited built it - itís yummy)
BMC Pod Filters
MyChron Gold Digital (Timer/Temp/Tach - Manual)
Fresh Bridgestone DOTs (paper is barely off from hot subdivision laps)
45 - 46 tooth rear sprockes
Two full rear wheels, with cush and sprocket carriers
One complete front wheel, with both rotors
Safety wired for CMRA

Course I might sober up and take it off the market as well.

I've had that before, hope you can sell it bro, selling a track bike in these times is hard.

Nice bike. Is it just me, or does the fork look bent in that picture?

It is a 1st Gen, 1999-2002, Good deal considering the parts on it.

Yea, but a stronger motor and better crank. Get out of the digital age and into the analog age:)

Anticipated sellers remorse I guess. I could use a spare front wheel and some of the other things if you really decide to sell.

More like got the quote back on what the deck is going to cost...

Won't be shuffling the fleet at all for a while.

Besides, Leeroy would give me way to much grief if I sold it without putting it on the track once.

Along with the carbs, you get the thrust washers that keeps the crank from spinning into oblivion. Check the WERA boards, the square frame motors don't hold up to track duty as well as the tube frames do.

I'll trade you $750 and nearly a cord of furniture grade white oak (about $3,000 worth) so you can build your own deck for that bike :)

$1651. ...but I expect driveway delivery. Final offer. ;)

D@mn nice bike though. I just don't care to deal with carbs personally. Plus...I'll never be fast enough to flog a current gen SV into crank failure. I'm ok with that fact. :cool:

$1649 and I will pick it up. The carrier is on the back of the Trail Blazer and ready to come by to pick it up.

Why would 2 Texans transact in a foreign currency, silly boy? I'm just trying to help you out by upping the ante!
