    But I got it cheap.

    Da fuq kinda bike is that? Reminds me of that saying "there's no more expensive bike than a cheap Ducati"
    Anyway, I'm cringing adding up the cost of all those parts in my head, unless of course you already have all the parts because you own one or more of that type of bike already...

    I dunno, for that kinda effort compared to the cost of one in half-way decent shape, you might need to be paid to take it for the math to make sense.

    No, no, and no, no. It will start after the leaked gas squeezes by the the worn rings and leaks out the crooked headpipe full of black goo, then blows out the can that has never been repacked.

    That chopper reminds me of the infamous RoadDog. Damn that is a work of art.

    The Z1000 is someone's cherished, beloved bike. Probably was told by his wife to get rid of it as its taking up space in the garage and he never rides the damn thing anyways. (4800 miles since 2012)
