Thanks Ekpent, understood.  And had I noticed that last pic in the ad, I might have hooked up my trailer and headed that way.

I think you guys are being a bit harsh. That gas tank/s would be great for those 500 mile days, and that bayonet/gear shift is sweet! What sort of bayonet is that, I don't recognise it, and I have a couple? I think a piece of foam glued to that seat base and some tassles for the handlebars, would make it one sweet ride! ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I bet you that's just 'Yard Art',eventually it'll just settle deep into the ground

The title on the ad is incomplete. It should say 750 Honda  complete pile of sh!+ $1500. Probably didn't have enough room to write that.

yeah,w/ no chain.. it doesn't look like it was even set-up to be ridden.

You'd think a tank like that would be a rationalized excuse to get an otherwise rideable bike out on the road...
