    Craigslist/eBay Bikes of note!

    This is a new thread to harness our collective OCD of shopping online for weird and bizarre things with two wheels. If you are like me at least once a week you type in your favorite searches in the eBay or many localities of craigslist.org looking for that oddball bike or car or whatever. Sometimes you find a real gem, something so odd or off the wall that it simple must be shared even though you have no intention of buying it or simply cannot afford to.

    I will start: Supercharged V45 Magna in Arkansas...see what I mean?

    http://fortsmith.craigslist.org/mcy/919535747.html




    Or this gem of an Aprilia starter bike in San Antonio....the shop that owns it thinks it needs a engine job....I think it needs a new clutch diaphragm to stop the oil burning issues...who do you think is right?

    Less than 3k will get you into it...

    I found a good one on EBay.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuk...Q5fmotorcycles

    It's a Suzuki RE5 with a 500cc Wankel rotary engine on it. There are a few others on there, but this is the best looking one I saw.

    I'm a VJMC member, and several of the guys I hang with on Saturday nights ride those things to the meet. They were crap back then, and they're crap now. But they're collectible crap. Weight of a 750, power of a 450. Weird Harold looks is a plus... Check out Jay Leno's garage to see him riding his.

    I think you're right. You saying it's sucking oil through the slipper clutch vacuum hose?

    Sorry, I still believe two wheels good, four wheels bad. If I was still living in CC, Micah, I'd by the damn Mille... *sigh*

    Not For Street Use

    I wouldn't exactly call that posing, as he's got the real deal, and that's not really for Street Use. Basically you buy this kit that all competitors in the "348 Challenge" and you can run the series. Sort of an IROC thing. I like the fact that he's got his priorities right to invest proportionally heavy on toys.

    No need to worry about that, Micah. Maybe it wasn't such a great idea to post the fix here. The guy probably reads this forum and has it repaired by now.
