Would you pay 9 grand for this?  :eek: Show quality? ::)  fuel filters are on backwards, missing fork boots, among other things

As bad as I hate to say it. I like the fairing. 9K no.

I like the fairing too, the seat not at all. I also like how fairing was mounted stay coming from front to keep shield from flapping, not much room on RD's to come from between stem and tank. Don't know why he didn't also mount some mirrors to same stay.

Cosmetics are good, especially the seat!

Tail light location looks like an afterthought by a 16 yr old.  :bang: He really doesn’t want to sell it at that price...  :umm:

It’s certainly not “show” quality from what I see in the pictures but what is an actual fair value on that bike.  5-6k? Maybe only 4K?

At first thought did not have one (doesn't seem too concerned over what's happening behind, no mirrors) then saw it had similar opinion.
