My. XS500 Basket Case
« on: November 09, 2014, 05:17:41 AM »
Hi I'm new to this forum but not new to bikes having been a rider for over 40 years. I am new to restoring bikes though. I just bought a 77 XS500 for 150.00 and it is in boxes((many boxes)  so I guess some of my work is done. Looking foreward to picking your collective brains as this project progresses.

I shake my head every time I read stories like this. Only because over here in OZ even a basket case is over $1500. Have recently seen xs650 basket cases go for over $3000.
Good luck with it and hopefully i'll get there some day with a 40' container and bring some of these orphans home with me.

It's not exactly paradise here either.Junk people couldn't give away 3 years ago has asking prices about 20 times more than it is worth.Clapped out CB360's with asking prices of $2500 is just plain stupid! >:( >:( >:(
