CBR 600 F2 Streetfighter!

I'm in the market for an inexpensive and fun bike. One that I can tinker around with in the garage and customize the looks. I am a big fan of the naked industrial look and I found this little guy on craigslist.


1994 CBR 600 F2
Quote:
No plastics, brand new batery, new oil and filter, aftermarket speedometer. Drives and shifts... 9k on the motor. Laid down by previous owner. Very fast bike. Not a toy for the inexperienced. Not in perfect shape, all it needs it some cosmetic work to make it look even nicer.
What do you thinks will be a good price to offer this man. I'm looking for a fun project but I am not going to offer this guy 1500 for something where I have to replace all the rubber bits, fit new tires, fix any cosmetic damage, more than likely replace the clutch, etc...

I was thinking of coming in with 600 dollars and agreeing to maybe around 800.
I doubt it'll go my way.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks.

For an 18 y/o bike that is described as "drives and shifts" he'd be making out of you give him $800. Not my style of bike but it's all what it is worth to YOU.

I've never enjoyed killing, but sometimes it has to be done. Do the job and move on.

I was offered £1200 for it while I was at the Ace cafe one morning . So I threw him the keys and grabbed his cash . Turned out we had a mutual friend but did not know it at the time . He promised he would undo none of my hard work and keep it as it is . Apart from the strip down and exhausts I made some upgrades in an electronic ignition ,bigger coils and carb mods ,so despite its looks it went much better than a normal one



O and the twin discs of course .. so it also stopped better ))

$1,800 should get you a nice F2.

I don't know why, but I look at that F2 and can't help but think it took a hell of a shot (why less would you put an F3 front end on it, 94's had cartridge forks). But who knows, you might show up and find a bike that just doesn't photograph well.

Only way I'd take that bike, is if you paid me $1000 to take it. That thing will be riddled with problems. I bet it's a complete pile of junk

They why's and the what's if following the rat route properly are irrelevant. Why would you put USD 2002 forks on an ls650... No point to it but cos they were available you did. A proper rat should look like it won't start and cost you your life.. But actually be perfect mechanically. I was pulled 3 times on the Yamaha and despite traffic inspection going over it with a fine tooth comb the best they could come up with was the mirror was non adjustable. But mirrors ain't even mandatory. So if the owner is a proper rat biker the bike should be sound and pass any inspection except a beauty contest.
