Yep. I did it. Almost back home with it. Drove to northern South Carolina to pick it up. It's not perfect, but in pretty good shape. Its a great base to build upon.

He better do one. That thing is awesome. Plus he's got plenty of time now that he's retired and all.

Harrybro, you better put period correct numbers and graphics on that thing.

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

It was in Lancaster, South Carolina. It's very close to Charlotte. I think Charlotte was only like another 30 miles north.

That guy has got some nice bikes. The RM500 is amazing, and might have been ridden once. He got from UNC (I think he said UNC). Some engineering professor at the college was into MX and for a class project they built a one-off RM500 using a KX500 motor. Suzuki donated the frame and plastic. Takasago donated the wheels. The Ohlins suspension was just gorgeous. To my eyes, it looked like it had never been ridden. It's loaded with trick parts. Hydraulic clutch, on and on.

To me, the 1986 David Bailey CR250 was the prize there. It was in very good condition. I have a bunch of pictures and will post them soon.

Thanks one and all. I will do a build thread, but it is going to be awhile. I need to do a once over on it and make sure it has fluids, air filter, etc. He said it has been sitting for years. If it checks out, I will take it out once and then put it away until we get into the new house where I can get at it in the proper environment. And yes, it will be restored to correct graphics. I hate the yellow side plates. Blech.

87 CR125 was my first big bike... bagged a lot of groceries to save up for it back in 88. My buddy had a 86 and we would ride out of our garages in AZ every afternoon when we got home from school... awesome memories... awesome motorcycle... and awesome purchase Harry!

Some more pics of the various bikes that turned my crank. First up is the 86 Bailey 250 replica.

And below I give you the RM500.

Apparently the bike below was recently featured in Racer X and was built by David Pingree. The picture sucks, but the bike was gorgeous.

All these bikes are for sale. If you're within driving distance, make him an offer. He seemed like a reasonable, decent guy.

That 101 bike seems like the deal!

Yeah, I remember that being at that dealer in Lancaster now. Selling off his collection for the kid's college or some nonsense like that. I guess I can't keep my CL ads straight! tongue

The last bike was featured in a Racer X video just over a month ago. How did he acquire it? Any idea? That bike is awesome.

Here's the video.

It was beautiful. Perfect in every way. I told him you can put a price on it, but getting someone to pay it is a whole nother story. It's a 2017 YZ250 that is upgraded with virtually every trick part money can buy. The engine is built to the hilt.
