My rare CB200 twin
« on: May 13, 2009, 11:13:06 am »
Okay, kidding about the rare part. Here's the CB200 I bought last August for $75, fixed up, got my license, then sold a few weeks ago for $650.





















It would start on the first crank or kick every time. Top speed was about 65-70. It was loud as heck.

That looks like a fun commuter.

I like that silver 4 door in the background too, a friend of mine had a green 99' that he was kind enough to let me borrow for a few days. Surprised the hell out of me, those are incredibly underrated cars.  ;D

It was my DD while that silver four door in the background got a new alternator. It wasn't fast enough for the interstate, so I had to take the long way to work, and after about 40 minutes of riding, my brain was rattled pretty good.

Drop in a 3.0 from a Taurus and it's a completely different animal.  ;)
