Yamaha Other description

Re-listed because it was "purchased" by an International bidder (I know), he paid the deposit and then he tried some scam to get me to lower the agreed buy it now price and then after I refused he wanted his deposit back because "his girlfriend accidentally hit the buy it now"  His actions caused me to lose another buyer, cost me my time, PayPal and selling fees and now resisting fees.  Word to the wise, don't offer to sell to international bidders.  

I purchased this Yamaha back in 2002.  Paid 5,500. It was an insurance write off from a lay down.  I bought it from a broker / bike mechanic and he put on the necessary parts to get it back safely on the road.  It was an easy left side lay down so all it needed to be road worthy, was a foot rest, 1 grip, and turn signals.  I'm surprised they wrote it off.

I flew down to TX and drove it 2200 miles home without issue.  My girlfriend (now wife) rode on the back and cursed all the way, (stiletto seat)

I replaced the tank because it was scratched and I wanted black instead of the red it was.

I lowered it to give it a boulevard cruiser stance, put on turn signal mirrors and ditched the OEM style along with the turn signals.  I also put on Jesse James long pipes that are loud and deep.  I was going for a Terminator looking bike.  Threw on some wide white walls (new) and leather saddle bags and left it at that.  This is a dudes bike that takes you where you want to go in bad ass style, it's not a pretty in pink bike.

It has a dented headlight ring
Scratched seat on the side
A dented side cover
Scratched front fender. (Sand it and paint it black)

Im not selling this as a stock pretty Road Star, It's been my casual cruiser and since I'm moving to the beach, I'm thinking I may go with a cafe style or just nothing at all.  It's a solid bike, a very dependable Yamaha engine with great performance and a lot of fun to ride but does have scratches on the left side..  It does its job and because it has blemishes, you don't have to worry about it.  You can drive it coast to coast, no worries. 

I'd entertain reasonable offers. It's time to say goodbye and let it go to someone who will ride it more than I.   So with an entire warehouse to move across the country, lightening up my load is not a bad notion 

Would trade for a Manx style, dune buggy.
