Dude, I never noticed the pink triple tree and levers!! way cool!officermartinez said:Polish off the rust and get them powder coated! I have MY bike and MY WIFES bike done that way.. It wont EVER rust again once they are powder coated.. Its VERY inexpensive and can be powder coated to match your bike!

when you're talking about buying a house, thats something everybody dreams of in their life until they are able to achieve it. Great accomplishment!!jdog said:I don't know. I just consolitated all my bills and own my bike. So if I sell the bike that another 3500 or so dollars I can put towards debt. I don't ride that often and love the bike, but a backyard and my own house is more a realistic dream to me.
Hope you can find a good home for her..if I had the cash, i'd definately take her off your hands. Wife would love it!! and me toojdog said:Like I said I own it, so i'm in no hurry to sell her. I would love to find someone who is just starting out on a bike. I would sell it to them, for cheap. Just because I know what it is like to want a bike and not be able to afford it.
I do LOVE to ride and it is good medicine, but I would feel a $hit lot better being debt free.
If ya know anyone who would be interested(above mentioned) in the cycle let me know. I would be able to take a road trip to deliver. 2001 GSX750F Metallic Olive Silver(don't ask). If it's someone deserving I'd sell her for $3800.
Plus i'd still have the wifey to ride....LOL
