Craigslist SNAFU

This is fun, something I'm borrowing from another forum. Cruise your local Craigslist ads and find the doozie that stands out above the rest. You know the one, the ad that for all intensive purposes could have been penned by a dudeman. Or drug addict. Or ultimate dimwit. Or someone with delusions of grandeur. Or any combination thereof. It doesn't have to be a Rebel, just find the ad that makes you chuckle and shake your head accordingly.

P.S. copy/cut/paste the ad as CL tends to cull them quickly, otherwise you could feasibly post a link to nothing.

For starters, let's dissect this one from my hometown (Las Vegas)...

82 honda rebel bobber $2200obo

Quote:
1982 honda rebel 250cc <funny, the Rebel didn't debut until 1985> motorcycle "bobber" style. bought the bike a few months back and really havent had time to ride. <Awww, gee...is it too hot for you out here? Didn't you notice that while you were out in the garage working on this thing?> the ignition recently went out <it doesn't start/run> but other than that its a solid bike <yes, the lacking rear suspension is rather obvious on the solid part>. the frame is custom from the tank back. gas tank dropped lower to frame, straight street bars, rear plate mount with led light strip. bike is bare, meaning no speedo, gauges or blinkers. <meaning the bike is incomplete> both rims were re wired to 19" with new tires <I spent $600+ per wheel to relace the rims plus the cost of new tires but I can't fix the ignition...sorry but a dudeman's got to have priorities>, carb recently cleaned and new plugs. <not that this will help the ignition issue one bit> asking $2200 obo <3X what a 82 TwinStar or CM250 retails for, and what ever the hell I have doesn't start or run> best way to reach me is text or call 7028583067 clean and clear title still has matching vin # on bike. <It still has a matching number? What, you haven't taken that off yet?>


"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Here is one for you 450 bobber guys!!!

chopper/ bobber cmx 450 honda project bike - $700 (cudahy)

I picked up this bike from a guy last year who started the build but had a kid and did not have time on hand to finish it. I have too many projects going and this one being the last on the list i'm going to let go. My loss is your gain. The cmx 450 is a larger displacement rebel that was built for two years. The bike ran when i got it but the carbs needed some work. The electrical is mostly there but there is still alot of work left to make the bike street worthy. The bike also comes with an extra complete cmx 450 motor, an extra set of wheels with ok tires, a black upholstered bobber seat, two sets of bars and other various odds and ends. The two motors alone will bring $300+ a piece on ebay if that's something you're into, i am not. The cdi and and electrical parts are worth some money too. Anyway, the thing is taking up room in my garage that could be used for other things, bike is As-Is with a clean and clear title and i'm firm on the price. thanks for looking. prefer email but txt @ 4148415689 would work too.
