Had a guy bring one by from an estate sale.

It is rough cosmetically. It has had the black krylon paint treatment. Tank is rusted inside and out. Will need a rear fender and a seat cover.

Headlight and taillight are gone. Speedo and tack look intact.

Anybody have suggestons as to what it might be worth?

I know it isn't a vintage mx bike, but they were cool little bikes back in the day.

I will try and get some photos.

not sure there was a ts 185 in 71. but if you only bought it to flip it.....do the work yourself

Yes, 1971 was the first year for the TS185. I have a 1972 TS185. Considering that I bought this running bike for $800, the bike you're describing sounds like it would only be worth a fraction of that. If you're interested in this bike to flip it (make money) then I'd say you'd be wasting your time and money. If you're interested in this bike purely just to bring it back to life and enjoy, then go for it!
