Does a scooter count? How do people feel about those anyway? I have one because I live in DC and it serves a unique purpose. It's a 2-stroke Kymco with a 70cc kit, so I feel a little more manly about it. It would be better if it weren't a twist-and-go, e.g. a classic smoker with a clutch would be nice, but it might take more time and upkeep money than I would like. Anytime on two wheels is better than four in my mind, even if it's a scooter. Plus, there are times when I don't want to hassle with the bike and firing up the scooter is much more appealing than my truck, and I love my truck.

CaptainK       :shg:

   Only since I retired (although I'm in the UK I used to work for IBM) ..  Decided fixing bikes again was great mental exercise and I like 'saving' bikes that are about to be hacked into trikes (VF750 V45) or worse ...
Many of mine were sitting in sheds/barns for years but have only very minor problems.

Been fond of shafties since I had a Sunbeam S8 many years ago.

Glad to see a forum member with 20 bikes though - makes me feel much better!

I have 3 bikes at the moment, & will be retiring just after the first of the year.
95 Nighthawk 750
93 Goldwing 1500
02 ST 1100
All are good bikes for different reasons.
As I'm getting older the heavier bikes are getting harder to handle, in tight slow places.
So the Nighthawk will stay and the other 2 will have to go.

You all must have some big garages :)

 I refuse to let a bike sit outside and my "garage" is actually a 10x20 shed holding my '84 700s and an '04 Sportster (along with a riding mower and other "stuff") I occasionally get a project bike to fix and sell but it gets like an obstacle course trying to wrench.

Needs a good cleaning, if SOQS would stop putting her stuff in it, would be a lot better.

Post by: spacetiger on September 01, 2014, 06:53:19 PM
6, but can this # be rationalized to come off as a reasonable number?

2009 Aprilia SC250:  Errand runner
2012 Can Am Spyder RT-S:  Work bike; 2-3 days per week
1984 Honda CB700SC:  Weekend ride
1983 Honda GL650I:  Weekend ride; middleweight solo ride or occasional 2 up
1990 Honda PC800:  Weekend ride; middleweight solo ride or occasional 2 up; nonop, currently in pieces
1986 Honda VF700:  Lake house queen; nonop, currently in some state of disassembly

The order of recovery:
1.  GL650 to be sorted out (suspension, brakes, and rear rack) the rest of this year - but the bike is still rideable
2.  VF700 to be reassembled; probably to be sold
3.  PC800 to be put back together and sorted out to be an active bike in the stable

So that will leave me with 5-6 running bikes and boored by next summer...

Rather chop a $200.00 bike than a $1000.00 bike for my first self chop.

I definitely know where you're coming from. Some things aren't about recouping $$$, saving $$$, or adding value... Some things are about sense of accomplishment, 'art' (a better word doesn't come immediately to mind), and of course...
It was my first built. With my daughter (7yrs). It will be hers one day. Single dad nothing like working with my favorite side kick. Some things like that recouping money is the last thought. She said no wrench gets turned with out her.
Sometimes it's just about a dad and his little girl (or guy... or not so little as the years go by)! Of course the 250 makes way more sense when you're building it for her to start out on. Cute kid, btw.
And Devil Doc USMC? Former Marine medic I'm guessing....

I have build threads for everything from the shadow forward controls, highway hawk exhaust, ect all over on the Honda Rebel Forum. I can give you the links if you want. It's just I already cover 3 Forums with this bike. Due to help from each building it. Keeping all 3 current can be a pain sometime. Because someone is watching and learning. Don't want to leave nothing out because it might lead them the wrong way if I did.
Some people love their big bikes. So do I but, these little one are so much FUN. Just enough power to get you a ticket. (in a school zone) ridn2

My buddy and I bought an '81 KDX175 dirtbike which I figured I may as well drive to class so I signed up to get my training done since Texas requires a safety class. The day I finish my safety class he trades it for an '86 BMW car, so I started looking for a bike. Living in Austin provides ample amount of choices for bikes, but most were 250ccs. Stumbled across an ad with the most horrific pictures of a badly rattle canned white '92 750 with "loud ass pipes" (as per the ad), no front fender, cafe bars, and a homemade headlight fairing with no windshield. Instantly recognized a diamond in the rough being sold by a jackass, so I went and bought it for $830. Oh and it had a title. It's definitely a nice running project bike, and I've already had a ton of help from this forum. I'm not sure if it's haggard enough to have a build thread, but one day when I get it right I'll post the end result.

tl;dr I have 1 bike. A '92 Nighthawk 750 that I ride everyday class, but still needs work.

I technically only have 1 bike.  I didn't vote because there was no "its complicated" option.  At any given time there will be 3-4 bikes in my 1 car garage.  I've become good at utilizing space.  I just cruise craigslist and anything thats stupid cheap, sometimes free,  I'll buy, fix, ride for a while and then sell.  I deal with cheap bikes.  I think the most I ever paid was $1k so nothings ever come up to challenge my 700s.  The 03 SV650 I just flipped was close.  If it was any other year it may have been a more difficult discussion. The 03 is the most crotch rockety of the SV's.  I recently started doing 4 wheelers and there is some serious money flipping those if you can find them cheap.  Its really not about the money only that I have to make money to buy the next one and keep the wife happy.  Its my therapy.  Especially in the winter when I can't ride.  I have a wife and 3 kids and just need to escape to the garage sometimes.  Crank up the tunes and start wrenching.  If I had more room I'd be doing cars but bikes are so easy anyways.  Right now all I have is my 700 and a 4 wheeler.  The 700 needs some minor work that I know I won't get to if I buy another.  Besides the best deals are in the dead of winter.

   The CM250 was a learner bike for my girlfriend. She was into it for awhile, then kinda lost interest. It's prolly gonna wind up for sale in the spring. It is a fun bike to ride though- feels like a toy compared to the other two.

Best money I've spent on my FJR. Bite the bullet and you won't regret it.

The FJR is too well rounded for me to own another bike. Always thought I wanted a 700S sitting next to the FJR, until I rode one. All I could think of was that I wanted back on the FJR. I don't miss carbs, I like the storage, and the FJR just fits better for someone of my size. I might take a 700S out every now and then, but I'd have to wipe the dust off every time. Too many bikes are left sitting in garages, I refuse to add to it.

Why the 250? Seems like a waste to do all that work to a bike you'll never recover.


Old thread I somehow missed :s

My 2 bits on that statement, if your build plan dictated by "costs you will never recover" is a poor attitude on vehicles.  That is unless you are a business.

250 or 1150 (I don't know rebel engines), the value is in getting what you want.  And there is always somebody willing to pay.  The thing about the 250, there is less demand, but you can always get your money back if you find the right buyer.  Somebody made a chopper 250, therefore somebody else might want it and be willing to pay to get it ride and ready.  I have easily over 3k plus my time into my 650 which I would be hard pressed to get over 1500 for it.

Worth every penny.

That said, three bikes with a fourth coming next year.  Two I ride about equal depending on the mood and where I want to go, the first bike is in rebuild.  I will ride em til their wheels fall off, and when that happens, I will completely rebuild the bike.

Yeah I read the thread previously. That's a badass ninja.

 Good luck with the trade. I agree that the current owner if your 700 would be nuts to pass on that trade. Especially if the 700 is stock.

One. Picked it up at a wally world for <$100. Fun mountain bike with actual suspension.

Oh, I got a motorcycle too that doesn't have pedals like a bicycle has.

Dualsport is in the works as soon as things stabilize a bit..and I start riding again. (too much fun work, not enough playing)

2..!  But there is so so SO much room for more  ridn2

2002 Honda Nighthawk CB750 - This is the third of this model that I've owned.  I think I've learned my lesson and will probably never sell this bike.
2009 Ducati Monster 1100 - I am a HUGE Ducati fan, for the noise, for the smell, for the love-hate relationship with the older bikes, but this newer model has been a dream reliability and maintenance-wise.   Doesn't mean I don't miss my old 2001 996 once in awhile but I don't miss thinks falling off (license plate holder, kickstand, random locknuts)

Three but.....

one is broke (2006 XT225 needs the valves lapped and put back together)

one is in pieces (2002 CB750 Nighthawk is now a bike in a box, I'll be cleaning parts up soon to sell. I'll offer a discount to all members of this forum. And yes the sick seat/fuel cell will be up for sale as well. Let me know if you want dibs on that before the masses see pictures.)

one is still at the dealer. (2015 Tiger 800 XCx was purchased this past weekend but some jacka$$ ran over a curb with it and bent the rim. Should get it today or tomorrow.)

I think i found that guy on facebook at one point.  I wasnt sure if it was a cb700sc store or what at first, but then realized it was just a collection. 

At the moment i have two, which is the most ive ever had (vintage vespa and bike, or crf50 and bike).  My CB700sc (for sale!) and a 2002 VFR800 i just picked up last weekend on the cheap with 113k miles on it.   bugeye1

6 in my garage (CA), 1 at folks place (NC)

1) '85 Honda 700S

2) '98 Yamaha WR400 (my off-road learner bike)

3) 1993 Suzuki DR650 (big kick-start only model before '96 redesign) ( my ride ADV style to Alaska when I'm good on dirt bike)

4) '03 Ninja 250 "Streetfighter" (girlfriend's learn to ride bike, MSF course soon)

5) '06 Ninja 650  "Streetfighter" (for sale)

6) '88 Yamaha XT600 (roller w/ engine and box of parts) turning this into a scrambler.

In my eyes dirt --> street bike is easier and more functional than street --> dirt bike.

Auxiliary bike in NC.

7) '8X Kawasaki Ninja Frankenbike
   ('86 gpz1000r frame, '85 ninja 900 engine)

The most expensive bike was the nighthawk at $1500, the Frankenninja the cheapest at $100

All the others except the suzuki were sub $1K

I moved from NYC to SoCal, I figured people would work on their own stuff here, and the used bike market would be a sellers market. Nope.

 There's always a tremendous amount of easy fix bikes on CL for a song.

Selling them is a difference t story.

YMMV


Edit:  I also have an electric razr knockoff kids scooter i got for free.

A neighbors kids outgrew them and he figured I'm the guy to fix it.

There's a short somewhere. When I'm done fixing it I'll just give it to the neighborhood kids

Just one at the moment - 95 Kawasaki Voyager.  I call it "Fungus, I didn't like it initially, but it's growing on me...

I'm on the lookout for an ST1100 or Concours.  Fungus needs some cosmetic help, and I refuse to be left without a bike

A 2003 ST1300 ABS with 59K on it.  Got it for $2600.  Not exactly what I wanted, but it was too good to pass up.  It has a Day Long seat, throttle lock, fairing extenders and a couple other things I'm not sure about yet.  I pick it up today so I'll have more time to look through it.

Congrats on scoring a good bike. I have the same year model and couldn't be happier with the bike.  Your Russel Day Long can take you many thousand mile days.  Best part of ST1300 is the adjustable electronic windshield. You can adjust the heights to any riding conditions with a push of  the button.

Can't say that I'm happy with the seat.  I'm thinking it was built for someone shorter, or may taller than me.  The "cup" seems too far forward for me.  I'm thinking I'll sell it and get a Sargent.  Other than that, I like the bike a lot.

Looks like I might be up to a 3rd soon.  I was riding last week with my brother, on the way home, Fungus started "stuttering" on occasion.  Seemed to get worse as I got closer to home.  Next day the wife was feeling well enough to want to go for a ride.  Took the bike up to get some gas - no issues.  Get home, get set up to go, and it won't start.  Got it running, and started testing and it seems the alternator has gone out.  Bike only had just over 40k on it.  So, the wife is aggravated, this is the 3rd time she's felt good enough for a ride, and the bike had issues.  She said I should have just gotten her a 'Wing.  So, guess I'll be looking for one of those now. 

Not sure whether I'll be keeping the Voyager or not after I fix it.  They don't seem to be a very sought after bike, so it's not worth much.

I always wanted a stable but never thought I'd have one.  After all, you can only ride one at a time, right?
However, I now find myself in possession of a 1984 Nighthawk S which I will be doing a thorough refurb on over the next year or two, including doing something a little subtle but personal with the paintwork, a 2012 NC700X in pristine condition, and a 2005 Vespa GT200 which is actually my wife's.  I have a couple of non-running Motobecane mopeds as well, rotting away in the garage.

P.S.  Tim...how do I make these images show up in the post like the other folks have?


In Flickr, click on any of your pictures so that's all you're looking at.  Lower right corner of the screen there is a series of icons.  The middle one is an arrow curling to the right; if you hover your mouse over it a hint will pop up saying "Share Photo."  Click that.  A window opens on top of the picture.  The first time you do this it will be under the tab "Share" and will have icons for Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Ignore that and click on the "BBCode" heading instead.  I normally set the lower box to the Medium setting that has one of the dimensions as 800.
Assuming you're using a PC, make sure the line with the link in it is highlighted.  Press and hold CTRL, then press C.  Let go of both.  Change to the window for this forum and after clicking in the white box where you normally type, press and hold CTRL, then press V.  The share code should appear.

Assuming you're using a PC, make sure the line with the link in it is highlighted.  Press and hold CTRL, then press C.  Let go of both.  Change to the window for this forum and after clicking in the white box where you normally type, press and hold CTRL, then press V.  The share code should appear.

* Honda Goldwing 1996
* Honda Transalp 600, 1996
* Honda NH 750, 1991
* Vespa PX 200 GS, 1986

I dont need all the support functions of the new bikes (I only miss an ABS) and I like to repair everything by my own, which is too complicated at new bikes (too many special tools are required)
