You used to be able to "flag" fraudulent posts/scams. Now you can just click "prohibited." The "?" beside the button indicates it is to be used for fraudulent listings and spam, among other listed issues. Hopefully doing so results in removal just as the old "flag" button did...

As an aside, that's a great deal!! I've noticed a few similar posts here in So Cal. Tempting! (jk jk haha).

Does that fall into their category of "prohibited items"?

He says it's an R1 in the title, but then an R6 in the description. Maybe the boy is confused.

Whoever actually owns it, it's a pretty nice bike.

This has got to be one of the strangest bobber/choppers I've come across:

Just imagine impressing the local biker gang when you show up and rev the mighty 125.

"It’s a suicide shift with no clutch which is at least a bit easier to do than one with a clutch." WTF?

What exactly IS a 'suicide shift'? And maybe not having a clutch is why he just got the motor replaced....

It is that hand operated shift lever on the left. On older bikes that had a regular clutch, this was combined with a left foot operated clutch. That engine/transmission combo has an automatic centrifugal clutch, just no clutch lever that needs to be pulled.

Ah, I see! Then it’s well worth the asking price?

Exactly, so I guess that left foot pedal does nothing. Unless he has it set up to downshift but it's too awkward or flimsy to upshift.

I had a 1200 zrx for a while. It was a hoot to ride just didn't turn great. I am sure this one probably turns better with all the work that was put into it.

Seems like a lot of money. But I know they cost more than the gen ones.
I paid $6k for a brand new 1992 example.

I always wanted to ride a gen 2...
