If you think it's a grand too much then it's probably priced about right.

not excited bout this one, not much to justify price other than a bit of paint, pipe is a joke, kickstand is a problem if they have to put a clutch basket under it, really a stock 750 no motor work claimed at all, looks like the forks are bent

I don't know if Gus is still selling that green Yamaha, but that's a cafe worth buying. Not so sure about this one, over $4g's for a "basic" cafe is too much IMO.

I have a RD350 I'd let go of, and with a little wrenching it would be awesome. PM me if you are interested. It's at Dani's house. This scoot would be a ton cheaper than what your bro is looking at, even after some $$$ spent on it.

Ridiculously overpriced! I see nothing on that bike that justifies that price...The VinMoto lists in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Indy have good running examples of mid 70's UJM fours being sold at half the price. You could also find some good bikes of that vintage at Walneck's swaps, but those might need some work.
The most important rule when looking for a vintage bike of any kind is to be patient. The right bike at the right price is out there.

while I may agree with you that the savages are garbage that conversion kit is pretty sweet - its a shame they used that bike and not one of the larger vtwins. But the finished product on that conversion is a pretty nice looking motorcycle. It won't be very quick and it will sound like ass but it looks pretty good.

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

I have a VT1100 that with some lower bars and such would be well within that price range.

the bike has 9k miles and is in fantastic condition.

He is looking at old school cafe style bikes and he's not willing to do any wrenching? That's about a contradiction and a half..... Ha!

Tell your bro to go look at Gus's cafe bike. Custom CB750... That thing is built right, runs good and is worth the money he wants for it. Besides having to change a tail light bulb every once in a while that thing is bullet proof and runs just fine.

This. That bike is setup right and you know it's been built and maintained by someone who knows what he's doing. I've ridden it and it runs and rides great.
