    Along with all the other things mentioned here, I wonder...

    Is he just trying to pull a scam? (Salvage Title, etc..)

    Or is he just that stupid?

    Or does he think General Public is that stupid?!

    Can I believe he changed the oil every 1k miles??!? I doubt that.
    "Higher RPM"? Higher than what? (Loved the "1-gear" comment above)
    Mis-matched parts, motor/tank etc... Did he get duped or is he trying to pull the scam. Good luck to whoever ends up with this one.

        I'll bet the guy's previous bike was a Harley, and all his riding buddies have brainwashed him with the HD party line.

            Engines, tanks, and frames can all be changed.

            It's a '60, '61, '62, '63...

              When I was a kid my dad listened to Johnny Cash and I hated country. 40 something years later I still don't like country but I love Johnny Cash and especially that song.

                  Johnny Cash is soul music, listen to his most recent recordigs.

                  Somebody please contact this seller to inform him that he's a boogger picking moron.

                      I know that it doesn't have more than 25,000 miles because most fz's exhaust valves tighten up at 20,000 miles..... OH CRAP I'm past 20k.

                          He refers to high speed as 60-70 and the gearing is not setup for that "high speed". I'm wondering if he knows there are 5 more gears.

                            LOL yes lots to question in this add, but so not worth the effort.
                            At one point I might have agreed with him about the engine not liking high speeds. I would have said 75 or 80. But I know for a fact that he has to be talking about how it can vibrate at those speeds. (The cure is to balance the carbs...)

                            I'd still pass. $2,500 would be my top dollar on a rebuilt title bike, and that would only be after I had ridden it and determine it tracked straight and true.
