    I saw a really neat bike on Craigs List.

    "1940's style Motorbike
    This bike started out a Felt V12 cruiser that I took to the next level. There are many one off hand fabricated parts on the bike that make it stand apart from all other motorized bikes. The bikes frame has also been converted into a full function gas tank with a hand fabricated gas cap, filler neck and petcock. The drivetrain of the bike is full hopped up as well with a ported cylinder, lightweight piston, flowed carb, custom expansion chamber exhaust, high compression head and custom motor mounts . The bike runs great and is a must see. The bike is CA street registered with the DMV and has a licence plate . The color is Raw steel with a high gloss clear coat so you can see all the awesome welds...this bike is show/magazine quality and will not dissapoint. Asking price is $1200 or Best Offer. No Trades and Cash Only."

    Is this a reasonable price (assuming that everything stated is accurate?)

    It depends on your mechanical abilities and willingness to make your own, or how fat your wallet is !!!
