haha thats a BIT high, but there's always a moron out there. I seem to always catch them, like my bike, I bought it 2 years ago brand new for $3000, and I just listed it for sale for $4600 and people have been calling, they think it's a deal......, i'll then take that $4600 and buy a brand new one on e-bay and laugh all the way to the track.

I was anticipating a thread on a Brand spanking new CR500AF......instead I got a over priced, under worded description, and a crappy pictured 450 that IMO is just butt ugly.....Good luck with the sale, I have a feeling your reserve will not get even remotely close.....at least you may want to lie and say it was a former David Villeman race bike.....some sucker probably might believe......everyone else will just laugh:excuseme:

No way I would give that for that bike. I would take that money and go to www.abernathycycles.com and buy two 08 450's. $5,394.00 each OTD.

For 10 five i would buy 2 brand new STOCK bikes. This bike is ugly to me......and its an 07. I think that 10 five is a missprint....should read 4500 at most.

thats ridiculous. lol all i see is a bike with stickers and wheels.... but somebody might pay it. I think it does look pretty cool tho. I bet someone will pay close to $7k for it when its all said and done. which is still over priced...

Hey if you get a free set of grips and a half day riding school on how not to scratch the plastic, its worth it. SOLD I'll take two. Maybe some swamp land too.
What a joke. bike prices are getting out of hand.

[COLOR="Red"]7500 on the bike 1000 on exaust, 3500 on suspension, 275 on avs levers, 3450 on hubs tires and rims,
custom one industries kit. and blah blah blah.
My bike has about 18000 invested in it. You can buy the thing or not no worries to me it will sell.

A $1,000 exhaust???? Includes tax, shipping and installation????
$3,500 on suspension work???? When this kid came in the shop, did he bend over and everyone there take a turn????
$3,450 in rims and hubs????? Made of unobtainium by NASA????

Still short by $5K or so, maybe the replca factory stickers and install was pricey.

I bet I could sell him my truck, lets see...
Cost $27K
Miles 100K / 16 MPG = 6,250 gallons of fuel at $3.22 = 20K
2 sets of tires = $800
Maintenance = $1,000
My time spent driving it (avg 50 Mph) = 2,000 hours @ 90/Hr - $180,000
Misc. $2,000 (gross underestimation)

Only $230,000 - Whatta deal!



Lwt this be a lesson to you young people, do not do drugs. They lead to a sensation of grandiosity and fantasy.

You guys want to see what a ten thousand dollar bike looks like go to SERVICE HONDA.COM and dont forget to look at the KX500af they just started producing last year. Aluminium framed CR and KX 500's thats sick!!!!!!!
