I have no money.

And riding, who would do such a thing? It looks dangerous.

Holy $hyt! This is just right up the road from me... I want this, but alas... It is just before Christmas and my wallet is thin. If some jack wagon would buy our America I might could squeeze this bad boy in the garage.

This is one of the coolest bikes I have seen for sale around here in a long time.

Notice how bright and shiney everything is and notice how rusty the front disk brake is... Weird.

Exactly... Welcome to the Alabama craigslist posters...

"The mileage is ORIGINAL, as are the tires!! We have changed her fluids, installed a fresh battery, and she's ready to go!"

18 year old tires and "...she's ready to go!"

Seriously... Nice bike, but I think I would be shopping for some tires.

I think the description is funny:

Quote:
Ok. So here we are. You are looking for a bike. I have a bike. You’re thinking,” Man, this bike looks cool”. Well it is cool. Very cool. In fact you’re looking at the modern version of an old design. How old? Old. In fact it’s built by a bike company that’s been in business longer than those cruiser guys. Ya you know the cruiser guys. It’s built by the guys that were in business during that little mess called WWII. And they took a beating too. Guess that’s why they still call themselves Triumph. Cause that’s what they did. And you can too.
So this is the Tiger 955i. It’s a member in a long line of Tigers. Tigers have been adventure bikes even longer than those German fellows. Oh wait, I guess those guys were British too. There has even been a few famous Tigers, road by pretty famous guys. Maybe you heard about Ted Simon. He rode a Tiger around the world – in 1973. You can check that out in his book, Jupiter’s Travels.
So it’s still you and me and I know what you’re thinking. You want a bike. Well guess what. That's not what you want. What you want is the dream. I know, cause I was there. Four years ago, I had no bike. Four years ago, I was you. Did you know that Bureau of Incredibly irrelevant statistics has determined that most men aged 25 thru 55 will spend an average of $65,000 dollars on mental health care and related products. That’s about 10x the price of this bike. But still you have no bike. Well I bet you have 2 blood sucking leaches, a dog and a wife. By blood sucking leaches, I mean lovely and talented kids whom you love and adore, if you could just get some time away from them.
So now you are thinking, we are brothers, but the bike seems old. Hey it’s a 2001 model and that makes it 12 years old. If this was whiskey, we wouldn’t even open the bottle. Too young. If this was, a computer we would throw it out. Too old. So for 12 this bike is just perfect. Maybe you are concerned about power. Are you kidding me, this thing has 105hp and its an inline triple to boot. What does that mean? It means that this thing will yank your bones out from under your skin and it will do it for nearly 350km on a single tank of gas. But its still 12 years old. That’s 12 years of hardcore experience. This thing will dodge potholes before you even see them. And reliable? You bet. This thing has been looked after better then Scotty on the Enterprize.
Now what? Well this is what you’re going to do. You will email me. Why? Because I won’t put my number in this ad, because some moron keeps sending a text offering me $800 more than my asking price. Apparently I was born yesterday. I know I haven’t met you, and this is crazy, but I’ll send my number and you can call me, maybe! You better hurry because I have a friend that wants this thing. His wife said he could get it, and a new wife. Lucky guy. We are going to miss her!
So man up. Do the right thing. Save 90% on the therapy bill, amaze your wife, yank your bones out of your skin while you pull through all 6 gears and live the dream! You deserve it.

Thought this was quite obvious. It's a KTM E-ATV Quad with the engine of a KTM RC8-R, which boasts 175hp and pushes this thing to 225kph (about 140mph). But 34,000 EUROs (more than 45,000 Dollar) it's quite expensive, too.

But TGDR will stay in my abbreviation memory

1959 Norton ES2

This one is pretty cool!

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...461945912.html




Quote:
First produced in 1927 the ES2 was the longest running design of all time. originally launched as a sporting motorbike,the long stroke single cylinder design was continuously developed throughout its long life.The designation ES2 originated from the original design where E was for extra cost, S for sports and 2 was reference to the 79mm x 100mm 490cc engine

It remained popular due to its reliability and aese of maintenance, as well as the traditional design. From 1947 the ES2 had an innovative hydraulically damped telescopic front fork and race developed frame with plunger rear suspension. Starting in 1953 the ES2 frame was again revised with a newsingle downtube swinging arm frame.

In 1959 the ES2 received its last and perhaps most significant update. The famous Rex McCandless designed " Featherbed" frame became standard. Additional improvements included ; a much improved AMC gearbox, revised cylinder head,moderised alternator

This motorbike is restored to exact original specifications
