This is a great deal. How much did you end up paying for it?

Next to nothing, clutch sounded like it was about to explode and was barely rideable both tires completely shot.
Many people had looked and passed so he was just in get rid of it mode.
Hereís a tip, if you want to get top dollar, donít tell the seller the wife wants it gone!

The clutch sounded so bad he thought it might be rod knock or mains, I never rode a strom so had to cross my fingers that the clutch was the problem and was lucky.

Saweet!

Was there a clear title for it or salvage?

Wouldn't mind another money pit myself.
