Crazy craigslist add. LOLS

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/2376193093.html


Im posting this WANTED ad because im tired of calling people whose ad is still listed only to hear the bike was sold a week ago.
OR I take time out of my day to go see a "clean" bike only to discover a crusty pile of junk that some moron thinks is worth 3000 bucks!

Im no fool, I have owned well over 200 motorcycles in my life, dirt, motocross, trials, trails, drag racing, road racing, harleys and other cruisers.
I am a Very experienced rider, mechanic, fabricator, painter and a former road racer with the CMRA.
There is nothing on a bike i can not fix, HOWEVER I do not want a steaming that needs to be overhauled.
I just want a decent bike, with the usual types of things a USED bike has... not an ABUSED bike.
I am willing to pay you up to $3000 CASH for a decent bike, with a TITLE, and current tags so I can ride it home from your house!

I am looking for a sport or sport touring bike. 4 cylinder. 600cc to 1300cc. I am not picky about brands. I have owned just about all of them at one time or another.
Anything between 1990 and 2005 is fine with me. V Twin sport bikes are fine also, 650cc and up, 2 stroke 250cc and up would be just fine as well!
cbr, gsxr, zx, vtr, sv, zrx, yzf, rgv, tzr, nsr, Ride Smart, rsv, tlr, gs, vmax. blah blah... No i dont want a Ninja 250 im a grown up

IF Kelly Blue Book says your bike is worth 3500 in EXCELLENT condition, IT BETTER BE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.. flat or bald tires 400 off the top! Chewed up brake rotors, 500 off. Missing or broken plastic and/or gas tank, $1000 off.. Bad Chain and sprokets.. $250 off. I looked at almost 20 bikes that had ALL of those problems and thier owners got offended when i offered $1350 for the pile of ! Dont be that guy, please! So I will start with what KBB and NADA says your bike is worth, and start deducting things it needs.. I dont want to offend you, but come on man be reasonable in what you are asking for your bike!

PLEASE USE THE EMAIL LISTED ABOVE TO PROVIDE PICTURES AND CONTACT INFORMATION.. I dont want to do a 3000 transaction via text message, im not a dope dealer!

Things that DO NOT interest me:
If your bike doesnt have a title.. dont bother contacting me. Someone stole that motorcycle, or ITS NOT YOURS TO SELL ANYWAY
If you have a retarded looking streched swing arm.. dont bother contacting me, i dont want to make a rap video
If your bike doesnt have the engine it was intened to have by its manufacture, dont waste my time.
If your bike is "custom painted" it was probably wrecked.. thats ok, just admit it
If you say your bike has "patina" you are gay.. patina is for antique desks and other like that
If your bike has no KEY or its ignition switch has been wallowed out with a screwdriver.. ITS STOLEN!
If your bike has ANGLE IRON for a foot peg, handle bar, seat or kick stand.. expect to take less than what you think its worth, turns out im not Mad Max


Things I AM interested in
If you have a track bike, with a REAL title not salvage, and some DOT lights that would allow it to pass inspection, I'M INTERESTED!
If your bike has some broken plastic or needs a paint job, I'M INTERESTED
If your bike is NOT the Gucci Cafe Latte' top of the line DORK bike with crabon fiber and Ohlins dripping off it.. I'M INTERESTED!
If your bike will safely get me across town, I'M INTERESTED!

If your bike looks like any of these they are not classic, not "street fighters" not custom, and not what i want.. They are wrecked and abused motorcycles.. ADMIT IT you broke your bike, and cobbed it back together.. I DONT WANT IT.
