Craigslist Failure Thread

I think such a thread is long overdue... When you see a FS on CL post it up here.

What's up on that one? Price?

Anyway, we should cut and paste the lols for posterity. Good ads get flagged quick.

Very clean and one of a kind 2008 Suzuki Gsxr 1000. Only 10k. One of a kind paintjob that grabs attention evrywhere it goes. Almost everythin is painted and colormatched with one off blue and green colors. Color were custom made with colorchanging pearl over bike which was $700 a quart per color. Cost more than usual paintjobs to strip the bike all the way down to frame just to paint it. You will definately pull up next to or see another bike with the same color as with most other bikes... think i liked this bike more than my hayabusa.

yeah, nothing really terrible about the first CL ad. a little pricey, but 4k is nothing. kind of a failure of a first post, this being a failure thread and all...

but the blue/ green monstrosity for over 11 thousand dollars is pretty hilarious. thing looks like a pain in the to ride or even look at

I would give 5 stacks for that CBR. Looks like homeboy has been making minimum payments over the years
What I have been noticing is 08'ish CBR1000RR selling used for $8K. Dealers were giving those things away at $7100 two years ago. At the time, the dealership I was at bought a truckload of BRAND NEW 07 CBR1K and liquidating them for $6700. Brand new with aged brown clutch fluid

Besides the mispelling, I still don't get how that is a feature that should be listed in a for sale ad.
Aren't both sprockets supposed to be driven?
