So this neighbor of mine has one in his garage. It's a 2000 with 7015 miles. We fired it up and it sounded a bit rough. He said it just needs the carbs and jets cleaned out which he was going to do anyway. He already put in a new battery and will change out the oil. There's zero rust on the thing and it really just needs a good wash or something to get all the dust off.
He doesn't have time to ride it plus he has some health issues. I just asked him if he ever thought about selling it. He said he's about 90% sure he'll sell it very soon. I told him I maybe 90% interested.
Should I?! I've been doing some research on it and it seems very cool. My only apprehension is the availability of parts for something that was only sold here in the states for 2 years.
Then I found this thread:
(just a representation of the W650 for sale as the one my neighbor has is the same color)
Sweet kick starter.
Not sure if the Bonnie I'm looking at will be go (price). However, this maybe in the cards.
