Atlanta craigslist is blowing my mind with how much people want for their junk. I have seen the old KZ in person and it's nowhere near "ALMOST COMPLETED".

yall arent looking at the good in the bike. it only has a Damaged front end and around the body!

Judging by the look of the rear tire im willing to bet he didnt to a break in of it and lowsided then it caught and flipped.

Judging by the shape of the front rim, I'd suspect he just hit a curb at 50 mph.

Wheels only bent on the one side. If it hit a curb dead on it would have bent evenly. That probably happened as it was sliding down the road.

What would make you cringe about a British engine, German fuel injection, GM air conditioning and Transmission. All tied together with Lucas and Bosch Electrics.

The gsxr is proceed so high because it has a clean title frame. Steal another 2017, swap frames and now you have a $8k bike for sale. It's the reason eBay won't let you sell frames anymore.

In the first picture, the frame was scraped up near the steering head.

You mean where the VIN is usually located? How convenient.

The GSXR is completely totaled, and I'd be pretty shocked if that frame was any good.

a "track ready" 2006 FZ1 for only $11,995... seems like a good price, right?

https://odessa.craigslist.org/mcy/d/...590380972.html

my favorite picture...
I'm sure that front wheel will never come off...

I feel like contacting some of these sellers too at times, just wondering what planet they occupy and if they did any comps for pricing. Goodness, delusional expectations on a 3000 dollar bike.

The custom paint and chrome crowd multiplies investment by 50 points as if a one off turd cickle is desirable. Ummm no.
