I like to buy Japanese bikes, not running.  Usually pay $100 – $500 for them.

Then it’s usually dump the bad gas, change the plugs and battery to get it running.

Typically I double my money on them.  Couple of the best ones:  79 Honda CR250R, bought for $100, put about $350 into it and sold for $750.  87 Kawasaki Concours, bought for $500, put a $30 speedo cable on it and sold for $1000.

I tend to break even on the ones I want to ride for a while.  The 87 Connie that I still have has soaked up a lot of $$$ over the years – I’ll never make my money back on that one.  Hence why I’m keeping it to Frankenbike 🙂
