  2. Is it worth the 200 dollars? Engine don't run.
    Is it junk?

    its for sure a classic, but im not sure about $200 for it in that condition.
  4. Maybe if the engine is not cracked and still usable I would think?
    I bet someone could make him a 100 offer and he'll bite.

    If I were there i'd surley buy it, but cannot take the risk of long distance, and might be a rip-off take the money and run?

    Of course it is worth $200 dollars!!! It could be parted out for 4 times that amount. The carburetor alone is worth over $100.00. The gas tank is most likely worth over $100.00. The flywheel another $60.00 to $75.00, side cover $50.00, camshaft [if it has one] is approx. $50.00, lifters $25.00 to $30.00, cylinder & piston $150.00, clutch pulley & arm $80.00 to $100.00, head $75.00 to $90.00, motor mounts $35.00 to $50.00, etc, etc.
    If I lived anywhere near the bike, it would be sold in seconds!
    Have fun,
  7. Thanks Quenton. I had a hunch this has worth. Then it's so old even.

    I wish I had the funds then build up on it.

    I'm sure someone else will see the gold around here in Denver.

    Hi Large,
    If anyone buys it, I have every single part possibly needed. And most of my vintage parts are NOS, but I have used parts [in perfect condition] if needed in most cases if money is an issue. Almost always the motors can be put in service with a little carburetor work [cleaning or rebuilding], and or ignition coil repair or replacemnet. An average "H" motor is worth $850 to $1000.00 rebuilt, and a "J" is worth about $200.00 dollars more. The points can also give a few problems, but can be easily replaced with a module [approx. $20.00].

    Have fun,

    Hey Large.
    If it is still there, I will send you the money to get it for me. We can work out the shipping later. That's a real deal..

  11. Contact him so he doesn't think he's going third party and I'll PM you my e-mail and contact info. Let him know I'll take it from his hands. Or maybe I'll take some pics?

    Large I just PM'd you. I hope he still has it....
  14. This is getting a bit frustrating. He hasn't replied yet.
    When people advertise,you would think they would reply to your e-mails.
    Some of them when their stuff gets sold,don't even remove their listing.
    It hasn't been 24 hours yet so we'll see what happens today.
