$2K is reasonable depending on miles I guess - You are buying THE Drag bike of the 90s

Looks well kept and the price is right. Check the wheel bearings, fork seals, brake pads, steering head bearings ect... Even if it needs some shit which it probably does 2 grand is worth it if that's what you're looking for.

Understood - How about this, when it rolled off the assembly line, it was one of the highly sought after bikes to become THE Drag bike of the 90s?


(better?)

less than 2k. That's a desireable bike when it's not modded all to hell and back, but by today's standards it's a dinosaur. you could get an old r6 or gsxr 600 for close to that money and it'd be lighter and as fast. That being said if you could nab it for $1800 I'd be jealous. i'd rather have a 750 myself.
