Up For Sale Is A Customized 98 Suzuki 1500LC!! 19000 Miles, Runs Great, Sounds Angry & Show Winning Looks. The Bike Has undergone extensive modifications that has turned it into a true road ready custom!! This bike was made to be ridden not just looked at. With the tank positioned under the seat & the lowered riding position the bike handles like a dream. I have never ridden another V-twin that runs as well or is as comfortable on the highway!! Asking price is $8000.00 but all reasonable offers will be considered. For further info, additional pics or to make an offer Contact Bill at [email protected] or Phone 352-362-4814

Reminds me of...

Lots of iron crosses and skulls. All it's missing is a few naked chick silhouettes! I think you can ask twice as much with those fantastic features! What a bike!
... a classified ad I saw a while back where some guy was selling a Toyota SR5 with "25K worth of stereo equipment" installed. Guess what? It was still only worth blue book value. People should realize that putting a lot of accessories on any vehicle doesn't affect the resale value very much. Many times if the mods are powertrain related they actually will decrease the value.

It needs a swastika stitched into the seat to be a real chopper and an FTW sticker on the psuedo oil bag.

seruzawa, Do you honestly think this bike is worth the same as a stock model? This is not a bike that some bumpkin bought & slapped on a few chrome accessories bought at the local bike shop. A lot of time, effort & imagination went into this bike & it shows! Every where it goes there are people checking it out, asking questions & taking pics. I dont see them paying as much attention to stock bikes! Why don't you apply your theory to bikes put out buy major builders. Tell them thier bikes hold the same value as a stock Harley! I think you should take a pause before you publish statements. I remember an old saying that goes (Better to stay silent & be thought a fool that to speak & remove all doubt!).

...selling a Harley. You're just relying on PT Barnum's old adage.

I see you didn't take the advice. Let me ask you a question, are you a real rider or a book biker?? You know, one of those guys that comes online & makes comments & quips but the only bike they have ever ridden is thier neighbors minibike when they were 12 or 13! Your statements have that neophyte aura to them. I am not trying to be insultive, I am just making an observation!

I think "Blond Update" should be your moniker!! You never did answer the question now did you?? Ok, childrens hour is over, time for me to do some work. Seruzawa can now take command of the forum with his critques that stem from vast years of knowledge & experience.
Look, I dont mean to be insultive but I felt you needed a taste of your own medicine! If you have limited or no knowlege on a topic you should refrain from comment on others statements. Especialy when it comes to a persons bike. That is a very sensetive subjects. Its almost like insulting thier wife!! Praise in public & criticize in private! There are plenty of ways to communicate without resorting to demeaning anothers posts.

Not that I'm trying to start an argument here - but if you think of this bike almost like a Wife, why are you seeking a Divorce?

Mr. Bros,
With all due respect, Mr. Zawa is right on the money. I can't tell you how many guys came into the HD dealer I used to work in with their heavily customized bikes, with sometimes $10s of k's of money "invested" in them. Every time, we offered the book value, even on bikes we had sold and put the accessories on them.

That's kind of the point of the running joke on "investment" on the site.

Okay. I'll bite. But first you gotta tell me whether the Norton 750 Commando was positive or negative ground. Whether the 60's Ducati singles used tappet screw adjusters or bucket/shim. What were the handling characteristics of the 1954 AJS 500 twin? What were the power characteristics of the '75 KawMach III vs the '69? And finally how long does it take to ride a Honda CL90 from the rock quarry on the South China Seacoast at Monkey Mountain to the downtown center of Danang, RVN.

Oh, there you go again. Bringing up your crazy "facts" and "figures" to cloud the argument. Well, it isn't going to work this time Mister!

1. Positively negative in a +/- orientation
2. Shims with tappet screws in the buckets
3. Sucked
4. Scary Sucky versus Sucky Scary
5. Depends on the headwind and how busy Charlie was that day.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!
