Yep we sold it many years ago, not sure what price though, I gotta check. We didn't do any of the work though I'm pretty sure. If I remember correctly this bike is a complete roach now. Looked decent when we sold it.

It's worth 4k easy if it still has the CP key chain.

Ken - Those things are unrideable! I do, however, have this 94 gixxxxxxxer.

Victim - I've heard that gixxers rule, but I don't know, it looks kind of old...

Ken begins to dangle keys in front of his face and giving him false hope of changing out of the spandex shorts if he purchases the bike.

You guys are killing me over here. Don't hate!

So I just looked, and it's hard to tell exactly which bike it is as we sold a few of those, but it was sold at no more than $4K and no sooner than 2 years ago at a minimum. I am gonna email him and see if he wants to sell it back to me.
