    Street conversion isn't gonna be worth it for the cost, especially when you consider not having a title.

    The only problem I've had with CL is scammers trying to get my money anonymously(emails and fake money orders).

    I tried to sell a bike on ebay once some kid in California bought it now and then backed out because he didn't realize it would cost money to ship it. Sold it on CL.

    I would sell to a guy wanting to convert to street. Just so long as he knows there are no guarantees and I won't help him. Cash only deal as is.

    Yeah dude, I'm with you there. Unless it's really easy to load up and meet somewhere, it's not worth the trouble. Seems fishy.

    Re: track bike turned into street?

    I've thought about it a lot, I have no idea what you need to convert back and forth from a track to street... but isn't it putting on headlights, blinkers, and a tail light? You technically don't need anything else to pass it for the street right? If you hadn't shaved off all the plugs on purpose it should be plug and play to some extent? Sure, no title isn't going to help, but otherwise is it that hard to go back?

    Pretty sure the wiring has been stripped down to only necessary stuff, plus its keyless, just way to much of a pita
