I painted my nails tonight but @mikegrundy isn't here to say if they're too garish. Can I leave the house like this? # Powered by Twitter Tools

So THAT’S what a titled frame is worth?

I just didn’t know they were worth so much.

And really, what MIGHT be a back wheel?


Suzuki 550

“1978.. It ran fine last year but now the key is missing.”



Everything about this ad screams “NOT MINE.”

Seriously – is this photo taken over the neighbors fence? Because this ad does not fill me with confidence that it’s being sold by the legal owner.

“i have a good running bike that needs a little tlc one rear signal light needs put on missing 4 little round cam covers just cosmetic also needs carbs cleaned as its hard starting but runs great once running second gear slips out needs sincro adjusted also could use a fresh battery it will take a jump start but wont start bike with out chargeing it first im not stupid if i do the work i can get 1500 but i need money now so the first person to come up with $500.00 gets the bike with clean title”

1978 Suzuki GS550

I’m starting a new thing. I keep doing searches on craigslist for old motorcycles to rebuild, and seriously, some of these are super priceless.

For example, this one:

The bike is clean only thing is passenger mirror is broken cause it fell over while sitting. I know I have a title somewhere but can’t seem to find it. It ran fine but I took the carbs off to rebuild and I haven’t even tried to get them back on. I was gonna chop it up to use for a go kart but I’m sick of looking at it please get this thing out of my driveway. I didn’t take a pic so just look one up

This is the best place ever to overnight on the way to northwest Ohio. 5 stars, easy. #pittsburgh # Powered by Twitter Tools
