well gents today i put 300 down on a 1990 gen 1 KlR with 9k miles on it. me and the old man are going halfsies on it. 1600 otd. needs a few touch up but nothing major, motor is strong from what i could tell from the test drive, all the elctronics work and it has new tires on it. it needs a few missing bolts for the plastics and the gas tank and i imagine the carb as well needs a good cleaning. will post pictures when i get some but we figure everyone needs a B.U.K.L.R (back up KLR)

i see the 88 there for 1850, the dealer here wanted 1800 but i talked him down based on that he wasnt sure if the doo was done(after he tried to convince me it didnt need to be done) and the few missing pieces. i think 1600 is a fair price for what we are getting.

Nice, man! I've got a thing for dirt and dual-sport bikes having the cc's emblazoned on the side of the seat. It just seems right. That's a sharp old-school KLR. Good find, Scrapper!

i am waiting until tomorrow to see if it shows up, if it doesnt i am going to get the down payment back. and then i am heading to the gas station by the house where a kid is selling his 07, has almost 9k on it with a bald as hell rear tire no doohickey upgrade, but other than that is in good condition. he is hurting for money. bills piling up on him, he wants 2200 so i will offer him the 1600 from the other one to see if he bites..
