OK, I don't know that this guy is optimistic about selling this bike at this price. I do think he is a little optimistic about his perceived grip of the English language. What kind of damage?

With the added bonus of scrounging endlessly for all the little nuts, bolts, brackets and myriad other little things he forgot to mention he didn't have.

I see it changes price from $3200 in the heading to $2200 in the text. While I like old XS650s, even for $2200 I still want a kick stand instead of a brick and a hand grip on the left side.

I'd hesitate to offer anything over $1,000.
