Ok I'm a pretty patient person usually.......but I've been looking for a bike to ride for months....I can't find anything that has a clear title for the amount I have (about $1500) I look on eBay daily for bikes that are 250 miles and closer. The only thing I find on there in my price range are 1980's cruiser bikes or little kids 50 and 80cc bikes......

what gives? is it near impossible to find a bike with this price or what?

I second the craigslist. I've seen the best prices there, and they're local.

BUT, you'll not get a sportbike for $1500. Try for a parallel twin, mid 80s, air cooled. Everybody made them, and you can still get parts.

Honda CM400, Suzuki GS400/450, Kawi LTD305/454, etc.

Be prepared to put on tires, or chain/sprockets, or battery, or carb work, or something else.

Clean, old bikes do pop up, but you've got to grab them.
