wow, just spotted my old sv on cl

i'm posting on my phone so i cant give a link but its the 01 sv650 in conroe/houston/bcs
the current owner has had it for maybe a month and a half and has already done quitea bit of work to it.
he sold the pazzo levers and woodcraft rearsets right away, and later traded his yoshi slip on + remainder of the stock exhaust for someone's stock exhaust
he's put on cheapshit ebay levers that i included as spares and the bent stock pegs that i got the bike with and repainted the bike light blue.
talking to the guy he seemed very mechanically inclined but looking at the pics, i see the sv still has its ugly spots to it.
to his credit, he has given it a sargent seat.
oh yeah, he took off the daytona bar an added risers.
i think he really wanted a cruiser.
its weird seeing my old bike like this

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/2062384604.html

2001 Suzuki SV650
31K miles, well maintained, many new parts
75hp v-twin, great torque for the street, and very willing chassis

This is a great, comfortable and dependable bike. I've completely gone over it in my time as it's owner, and it's been nothing short of fun and bombproof. This bike handles great...simply look through the turn and it goes there, no wobbles or drama. I commute 180 miles daily on it, so mostly highway miles, and I've made it a very comfortable sport-tourer. Seat, bars and pegs are all day live-able, but still aggressive enough for the curves on 149 through the National Forest that make up my daily commute. Best part is on the way back after a long day I'm still fresh enough to enjoy leaning through that section of road and arrive home stress free and happy.

Recent:

Tires (2k mi ago)
Chain and sprocket (-1/+2)

Newly added:

Gen-Mar bar risers (1" up, 1 3/8" back)
Sargent seat, much more comfortable than the painful stocker (stock seat included, but has a tear in it, and I also have an extra pan)
Buell pegs, about a 3/4" drop, very comfortable (straight pegs included)

Other:

Kawasaki 636 rear shock mod, much better unit than cheap Suzuki piece, and adjustable remote reservoir
Loud pipe replaced with very clean stock unit
recently painted, not perfect, but looks nice
Superbike "Daytona" bars
Givi windscreen included
I have a complete '03 GSX-R 600 front end with brand new tire that I will include for an extra $400, or to help with value in trade for car. This is supposed to be a bolt on mod, and will be miles better than the stock setup.


Included/spares:

Front stand
Rear stand
Top triple with ignition cylinder and key (was going to adapt to GSX-R front end)
One cushioned but ripped stock seat
One bare stock seat pan
Stock rear shock
Set of straight pegs


$2250 for outright sale...but prefer an even TRADE for a car.

I'm looking for a dependable car and need something I can put a car seat in, so preferably 4 door. Partial to standard shift cars, but let me know what you've got as I'm a car nut and interested in all kinds of things. Looking for a Subaru wagon at the moment, but I know the chances are slim. Entertaining all trade offers though, maybe even a small SUV or light truck.

I live in Willis, and am in College Station daily. Willing to meet anywhere around Houston and these two points.

Thanks for looking.

I want a new bike, but I'm loathe to sell my SV after all the work that's been put into it - I think I'm a little attached to it. I can't imagine finding it after a few months completely different and for sale again.

But it's just stuff - suck it up and move on.
