"SELLING WITH NO RESERVE" HI BIDDER WINNS,I
I CAME ACROSS TWO BEAUTIFUL  OLD SURVIVOR MOTORCYCLES LAST SPRING  AT A LOCAL ESTATE SALE,THIS 72 KAWASAKI f-8 AND A 68 HONDA CL 175, THEY WERE COVERED UP IN THE BACK CORNER OF A VERY NICELY KEPT GARAGE , I WAS TOLD BY THE GRANDSON THEY WERE NOT FOR SALE , AFTER LINGERING AROUND LOOKING AT THE VARIOUS ITEMS FOR A WHILE I ASK THE OLD WOMAN IF THE BIKES WERE FOR SALE ,SHE ASK ME WHAT I WOULD GIVE SO I UNCOVERED THEM TOOK A GOOD LOOK  AND MADE A OFFER , SHE SAID THAT SOUNDED GOOD TO HER,I STARTED TO PAY FOR THE BIKES WHEN THE GRANDSON GOT WIND OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING HE HAD A FIT, THEN ANOTHER CUSTOMER CHIMED IN AND INFORMED GRANNY THAT SHE WAS GIVING THE BIKES AWAY THEY WERE WORTH THOUSANDS, AND HE WOULD PAY ALOT MORE ,I DONT THINK  THE IDIOT  HAD TEN BUCKS TO HIS NAME BUT WAS A INSTANT KNOW IT ALL APPRAISER . HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO PUNCH SOMEONE IN THE MOUTH. I TOLD THE GUY THE DEAL WAS DONE AND HE NEEDED TO MIND HIS OWN BUSINESS ,ANYWAY TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT GRANNY CHANGED HER MIND ,THE BIKES WERENT FOR SALE ANYMORE ,AND A FAMILY FUDE STARTED. SO I LEFT MY PHONE NUMBER AND TOLD HER IF SHE CHANGED HER MIND TO CALL ME, I FIGURED I WOULD NEVER HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN. ABOUT 3 MONTHS LATER I GOT A CALL FROM THE SON INLAW  WHO TOLD ME ALL ABOUT THE BIKES, HE SAID  THEY BOTH RAN AND BELONGED TO THE DECEASED  FATHERINLAW ,THEY WERE RIDDEN AND KEPT AT A PRIVATE AIRPORT THAT THE FAMILY OWNED. HE ASK IF I STILL HAD INTREST BUT THE HONDA HAD BEED DAMAGED ,THEY DROPPED A  HEAVY RADIO  ANTENNA FROM THE RAFTERS IN THE GARAGE A DAMAGED THE GAS TANK,THE GUY SAID THEY COULDENT FIND  THE TITLES ,HE ASK ME IF I WAS STILL INTRESTED,  YES I WAS STILL VERY INTERESTED.  I KNEW I HAD TO OWN THESE MACHINES, I WENT BACK OVER  TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AND AFTER NEGOTATING  I AGREED TO PAY SEVERAL TIMES MY ORIGINAL OFFER AND WAS HAPPY TO DO SO AT THE TIME ,  YOU JUST DONT SEE OLD ORIGINAL BIKES LIKE THIS EVERYDAY, THEY ARENT OUT THERE I LOOK FOR STUFF LIKE THIS AND THEY ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. I GOT HURT LAST SUMMER AND HAVE FALLEN BEHIND ON MORE IMPORTANT THINGS ,I HAVE DECIDED  TO START SELLING  OFF MY COLLECTION,I DONT HAVE TIME AND AM LOOSING INTREST .I HAVE TOO MANY MISC VEHICLES AND NOT ENOUGH TIME . MY WIFE AND I ARE WANTING TO MOVE OVERSEAS AND RETIRE AND MY WIFE IS PUSHING ME TO SELL OUT ,ITS TIME TO PART WITH THIS STUFF I CANT TAKE IT WITH ME.,IM LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO APPRECIATES  AND REALIZES THE VALUE OF A  FIND LIKE THIS AND IS WILLING TO GIVE IT THE LOVE AND ATTENTION IT DESERVES,ITS A NICE COLLECTOR PIECE.AND PRICED TO SELL.
THIS IS A LOW MILE 72 F-8 BISON 250 TWO STROKE ENDURO, THEY WERE NOT THAT RARE BACK IN THE DAY ,THEY WERE WONDERFUL WELL BUILT STURDY MACHINES THEY  NOW HAVE BECOME VALUABLE COLLECTORS. GOING UP IN VALUE EVERY YEAR. AND THEY ARE NOT EZ TO FIND ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. THE BIKE IS A VERY CLEAN ORIGINAL SURVIVOR,IT SHOWS NO SIGN OF EVER BEEN LAID DOWN OR DROPPED,ALL PAINT  IS ORIGINAL ,TIRES ARE ORIGINAL WITH JAPANESE AIR STILL INSIDE,NO FLAT SPOTS OR ROT,CHROME RIMS ARE  NICE AND CLEAN, NO LOOSE SPOKES,NICE SPROCKETS ,FORKS ARE STRAIGHT AS WELL AS HANDLEBARS, FORK SEALS ARE NOT LEAKING AND SUSPENSION FEELS TIGHT, BIKE ROLLS VERY EZ AND BRAKES ARE WORKING. THE ORIGINAL SEAT COVER, HAS A SMALL MOUSE CHEW HOLE IN BACK, "SEE PICS "FENDERS ARE METAL AND STRAIGHT, ALL ORIGINAL UN DAMAGED RUBBER ON HAND GRIPS, FOOT PEGS ETC, NICE EXHAUST PIPE, NOT BENT OR BANGED UP, UNDERCARRAGE IS VERY NICE, NO SCRAPES DENTS IN FRAME, ALL WELDS LOOK GREAT.  NO RUST OR EXCESSIVE PITTING MINOR PAINT CHIPS ON TANK AND VARIOUS SPOTS COMMON WITH USED BIKE ALSO THE ORIGINAL TOOL KIT IS MISSING BUT TOOL BOX IS IN GREAT SHAPE  ,DONT EXPECT BRAND NEW, ITS NOT, BUT IT HAS NEVER BEEN ABUSED PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP IS EVIDENT  I WOULD BET YOU WONT FIND ANOTHER ORIGINAL ONE THIS GOOD  ANYTIME SOON ,IF EVER
I DID GET THE BIKE RUNNING,I ADDED FRESH 93 OCTAINE RICH 20:1 MIX  IT STARTED ON THE SECOND KICK TO MY SUPRISE , THE TANK WAS DRY WHEN I GOT IT, SOMEONE WAS SMART ENOUGH TO DRAIN FUEL  FOR THE TIME THAT IT SAT. BEFORE I STARTED THE BIKE I PRE MIXED THE FUEL BECAUSE PRIOR EXPERIANCE HAS TAUGHT ME NOT TO TRUST OLD OIL INJECTION PUMPS ON VINTAGE TWO STROKES, ANYWAY THE BIKE RAN AT A VERY HI IDLE, I COULD NOT GET IT TO IDLE DOWN, IT RUNS SUPER STRONG , AND SOUNDS GREAT,I ENDED UP REMOVING THE CARB AND DISCOVERED THE RUBBER BOOT AROUND CARB HAD SHRUNK AND WAS POSSIBLY SUCKING AIR, AND THE THROTTLE CABLE WAS PULLING  UP, DUE TO SHRUNKEN RUBBER BOOT I HAVE TRIED TO SOFTEN THIS BOOT UP WITH NO SUCESS , A FRIEND SUGGESTED SOAKING IN CARB CLEANER TO SOFTEN IT BUT I NEVER DID,THIS WILL NEED ATTENTION OR REPLACED TO RUN PROPERLY, IM SURE ONE IS AVALIABLE SOMEWHERE  OR YOU MIGHT HAVE BETTER LUCK GETTING THE OLD ONE PLYABLE AGAIN. EXHAUST HEAT SHIELD IS ALSO MISSING I WAS PROMISED THE  CHROME HEAT SHIELD FOR THE EXHAUST WHEN THEY FOUND IT, I NEVER GOT A CALL AND THEY HAVE SINCE SOLD OUT AND MOVED ,SO ITS MISSING  THE HEAT SHIELD,  COULD USE A NEW OIL INJECTOR CABLE IF YOU DESIRE TO USE THE FACTORY OIL INJECTOR ,I DAMAGED THE ORIGINAL ONE MAY BE FIXABLE HAVENT TRIED, ITS DISCONECTED, OTHERWISE THIS IS THE BIKE, VERY NICE RESTO CANIDATE OR NICE OLD RIDER WITH A LITTLE MONEY AND SOME TLC, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK BEFORE BIDDING ,BE HAPPY TO ANWSERWILL BE SELLING AS IS WHERE ISBILL OF SALE ONLY " TITLE HAS BEEN MISPLACED"  IF IT EVER EVEN HAD ONE
IF YOUR CONCERNED ABOUT A TITLE  PLEASE CHECK VERMONTS DMV TITLING SERVICE, TITLES FOR OLD VEHICLES CAN BE OBTAINED FOR LITTLE FEE THROUGHT VERMONT DMV, U TUBE WILL TELL YOU ALL DETAILS, ITS NO BIG DEAL ANYMORE ON GETTING TITLES FOR OLD VEHICLES IF YOU THINK YOU  MUST HAVE ONE, A FRIEND DID IT ON OLD MUSTANG A WHILE BACK WITH NO PROBLEMS ,CALL VERMONT DMV THEY CAN ANWSER YOUR QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS IF YOU DONT ALREADY KNOW
BIKE IS LOCATED IN CENTRAL MO. AT LAKE OF THE OZARKS ZIP 65037I PREFER CASH IN PERSON  OR PAY PAL,IF USING PAY PAL ADD 3% TO COVER THEIR FEES
IF YOU PICK UP IN PERSON I CAN HELP LOAD IF NEEDED I HAVE A RAMP 
IF YOU GET THIS BIKE FOR THE STARTING PRICE YOU WILL HAVE STOLEN IT I THINK ITS WORTH DOUBLE THAT IN ITS PRESENT CONDITION, AND MUCH MORE IF FIXED, A LOTTA MEAT LEFT ON THE BONE ON THIS ONE FOR THE RIGHT GUY.
GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING
