This is the time of year I get the 'itch' to buy another bike...
Same here! I'm eyeing a Concours but if I buy it, I'll be sleeping in the garage with it!

That was wild from start to finish, at least they are asking a fair price

For anyone that wants to get into dual sporting and light adventure riding, this is a good deal. Not mine and don't know the seller, but would buy this if I was in the market.

I just knew if I typed "Cafe Racer" into the search section on CL I'd come up with some real winners. The latest gem is this heavily customized old '81 CB750. Apparently, "heavily customized" means the removal of the front fender and side covers, a change to an ugly flat seat, and painting everything black. This wonderful creation can be yours for only $3400...........ugh!

Isn't that what a cafe racer is?
Same story with this bike: 83 gpz550 This bike has been on craigslist since I have moved out here in august of 2015 and the price has only changed from 3500 to 3000. Ugly and overpriced if you ask me.

Yup, you think that nutter would get a clue, but then again CL doesn't cost anything.

Yeah I think he charged extra for the "custom" tank dent. Or maybe it's the cool custom rear fender. Please, somebody shoot me if I have to keep seeing crap like this!

Yamaha WR250X for $2500 Seems legit.

Selling my supermoto due to lack of interest and not riding. Selling for so cheap because I have court and not sure what's gonna happen with that and don't want it sitting. Currently don't have the title was lost in a totalled car but can obtain a new one. Bike will be sold with a bill of sale and something saying I'll get the title if you please. Bike is very reliable and a great starter bike. As for condition it's probably a 5/10 (brake and clutch handles are cut and few scratches. Bike has a big bore kit so is actually a 280cc has a h.I.d kit and power commander. Also just replaced the rear tire with a lightly used tire bought from a friend. Bike has 7900 on the body the big bore kit was done around 4k. Have receipts just need to find them. Call or text if interested. show contact info

Same with "custom" sportbikes (custom cruisers/choppers/bobbers actually look mostly good if you're into that kinda thing).

Search for "custom" sport bikes and most all of them are basically "It's been down one at least one side at one point, and I didn't want to return it to original, so I made this monstrosity instead."

Current winners:
Custom 2003 Ninja 250 cafe racer for sale - take plastics off, put on ugly head light and paint seat brown.
Custom ninja 650R VERY LOW MILAGE - leave the front off, put on ugly headlight
2005 GSXR 1000 Cutsom - with this marvelous quote, "This motorcycle is not your average hacked up streetfighter." You're right, this one has a radar detector on it.
(although this last one is very obviously setup as a stunt bike - though no mention of that in the add. In fairness I have no clue what passes for a "decent" stunt bike.)

I hang out on the new section of eBay a lot and came across this custom 07 r6 exhaust. Guess he didnt have any dryer vent...

As to the 2005 Gixxer that Andenthal found for sale in the posting above, my wager is that this is a painful proctological exam only one chuckhole away.


I must be living in the past. All these Craigslist ads for "Cafe Racers" look nothing like what my image of a cafe racer is. Of course, that may be part of the purpose behind this thread but, jeez, doesn't anyone know what one really looks like? Single seat, lightened bike, clip ons, nifty large headlight. This Honda is a beauty. Not likely you will find it or anything like it on Craigslist.
