    If the parts are available to get it running and keep it running it doesn't look so expensive to me. Look at what sort of prices the Yamaha RZ 500 and Suzuki RG 500s are commanding, pretty sure parts availability for either of these isn't too good either. As I suggested in an earlier post, kilometers on most 2 strokes are just about the most expensive kilometers you can do on any mass produced motorcycle. Fast wearing, fragile engines, extremely thirsty, horrible for the environment, But also way too much fun for committed owners to worry about their foibles.

    Yes, I agree @Gizziracer but the point I was trying to make is that asking over $5,000 for a rusty POS that doesn't even run is a bit much. The $8,000 bike seller was originally asking $10k and I'm keen to see how low he eventually has to go to make the sale.

    The $8,000 MVX is also registered and as the listing says..."Restored MVX goes well still needs a couple of little things to finish I just can’t source them . Comes with another frame and a couple of motors, very rare bike haven’t seen one in this condition for sale in years price is 10k because of its rarity 0410442092".

    I'd pay the $8,000 just to get the bike and the extra frame and engines.

    I’ll give you a VT250F (sans engine) if you want to ‘play’.

    The comparable bike would be the RD250, but they are a lot more popular, and it would want to be Mickey Mouse to pay $5k. Mightn't be as rare, but it means there are parts and add-ons and lots of expertise. Or just go an rgv.

    Silly prices , but the earlier 87 fzr1000 is touted as a future classic and fetch around $8000 to $10000 , the later not so much

    As long as the ride to work is a perfectly straight line I think this bike has some “grate” features. Huge weight savings are possible when the exhaust system can double as both a centre stand and a side stand. Fantastic innovation!

    I agree, that front tyre looks like a mountain bike tyre. Surprised it got a roadworthy as I am sure the speed rating of a mountain bike tyre would be well below the capability of just about any road bike.

    Maybe they rated that front tyre on the bikes cornering speed.. no way that things doing a roundabout much faster than a geriatrics walking pace. With so little ground clearance you would just about have to hang off it to change direction.
