Maybe, not sure if he has been riding it lately. Definitely stands out when near the rest of the bikes.

You know the creator of this machine? I would pay money if he came here and told us about the build and/or some of the motivations/influences behind the unique custom touches the bike has.

Nothing to see here but the usual delusional Cafe Racer "builder" with what he thinks is the most badassed, head turning custom.

What I see is an ordinary old UJM XS1100, with a cheap Cafe Seat, a missing stock exhaust replaced by an obnoxiously loud, abbreviated straight pipe, no front fender for the oversized "brat" front tire, and an ugly color paint job.....

.....and WOW!!! It's a head turner worth $5500!!! *eye roll*

Awesome! Where to start? Hmmmm.

How about better pics of the shovel handle please.

How did you decide to use that as a headlight bracket? What was the inspiration?

I knew they were assembled in Italy, but had no idea Ducati actually contributed. I learned something new.

The 599 was indeed made in Italy. aka CB600F or Hornet in the rest of the world. A pretty decent all-rounder.

Ducati parts? Please. Even it had some that doesn't make the bike any better... thats a step in the wrong direction lol. I want Honda parts on a Honda. I want my Honda to be made in Japan for that matter.

Bought a 599 at the University Honda liquidation auction in 2009. It was extremely "meh". Although the auctioneer rode around in a podium on wheels kinda like The Pope which was cool. The 80's neon sign I won and restored was the real prize.

I don't normally shop on CList for used bikes, but I'm looking for something specific this year that is rarely in dealerships.

If been looking off and on since Nov/Dec or so. Most stuff seems priced fairly well. I understand folks pricing things fairly low in the dead of winter to get rid of something quick. I'm seeing a lot of bikes for what I could consider to be like 1.5-2x more than other similar bikes.

Is it common this time of year for prices to skyrocket like that? Most of these aren't anything special (IMO) - just standard 600/1000 cc Japanese supersports that you can regularly find on CList literally any day of the year. I mean no disrespect to the sellers, but I'm curious why some of them are priced much, much higher than their peers.

Quick examples:
'08 CBR 1000 16.5k miles - $9k
'08 ZX6R 13k miles - $6100

The CBR does have a bunch of after market farkle - but most of it is pretty common stuff and most all is cosmetic.

is this a phenomenon I am just now witnessing?
