Bought a bike

1980 Yamaha SR500, fun as hell. I gonna put some cafe style handlebars on it after I'm a bit more used to it. Supposedly it only has 5400 original miles, but I'm not sure if they just had it painted or not. Kick start can be a bitch but I'm getting the hang of it.

I'd guess it'll break 100mph by a bit--but it'll take a while to get there. A 500cc thumper probably puts down ~30rwhp.

Looks like a fun little around-town beater bike. It's not worth $2300 though, unless it's got some additional rarity value that I don't know about.

Badass.



Sure, he could have waited around for a better deal, but it seems he shopped around & got the best bike *available at the time*. "Worth" is a very subjective concept.
