They lose value right off the lot, you'll never make your money back on of those old models . . .

She gets paid more than she costs now. I cant afford to sell her. I did finally buy this guys bike tonight though. I was wrong about the mileage. It only has 2250 miles on it. I think I may use it for a commuter bike for a little while. Although my son says he would like it. He may get it for Christmas. I don't know yet. I got it cheap enough that I don't need to sell it anytime soon. A RYCA kit may be the way to go. I am a little impressed with the power it has I was expecting it to be more of a dog. I really hate the riding position though. I either have to hold myself up with my arms or my stomach muscles. I could see it getting really uncomfortable quickly. I feel like I am at a parent teacher conference sitting at a child's desk. Also the ground seems way to close when I put my feet down.

The wife fits on it a lot better than I do. Now all I have to do is convince her to learn to ride and she can get off the back of my bike.

Default Air Horn

My son had an LS650 and asked me to come up with a Stebel/Wolo chrome air horn kit for it similar to our V-Strom kit. We ended up trading it for a DRZ400S about a week after I built the prototype. I wasn't able to fully field test the horn kit so I never put it into production. If you are interested in trying the kit out and helping me refine it, email me and we can work something out.

I had one of those. Traded it for my Wee 6 years ago. What I liked: That torquey engine. Probably the only bike I never stalled even once. At 352 lbs it got off the line quickly. What I didn't like: rider position & handling. 35 degree fork rake & semi-forward pegs meant it didn't like corners & wasn't comfortable at all. But a Ryca conversion would be one fun bike.
