cheap friend wants a cheap bike


anyway, friend of mine likes motorcycles. who doesn't, right? he wants to start, but wants a really cheap, under $1000 or a grand max (i know, i know) bike to learn on cuz he sucks at everything already. and he doesn't want to go far from the wisconsin area to get it.

so if any of you know of, or have, a cheap bike (even a fixer-upper/non-running) would you please let me know for him?

thanks either way, preciate it.

i agree, luckily he has full gear already (his pop's old stuff, but hey, still works and protects)
all he needs is a nice little/old bike to start on. everyone has to somewhere. i'm guessing you weren't born riding a bike. if so i don't even want to imagine what yo momma looks like.

Have him check out Road Track and Trail. Its on National ave, in Big Bend. They have a shit ton of used bikes he might be able to find something there. I don't know of any bike that cheep that actually runs or is in decent shape but I might be wrong.

There's only so many green M&M's a man can eat before he goes...FUCK I WANT A RED ONE.

It's in great shape. He just brought it over to us for a tune up, and it might need a carb clean...

Wow

Now only if I could find a YSR50/80 for that price...or even a NSR50


I'm sure there might be a yellow/black F4i around (that's been crashed multiple times) that might have one more life in it <---- Tanya knows what I mean.

Well - considering the Katana hasn't really changed in the last 17 years (save getting rid of the teapot bodywork and replacing it with melted ice cube) - that could be construed as a good deal.
