    Craigslist. Remnants of a dude's bike he crashed in 1991. Off of 1986 VFR700F, 9000 Miles. Highlights are a swingarm chain slider that isn't cracked, fuse box w/ cover, reg/rect, fuel pump, ignition switch w/ key that feels perfect, ignition module. Actually needed a chain guard and the chain adjusters for a build. Friend's rear caliper is toasted, so we'll combine the best parts.

    Geez, talk about a barn find. 1991. LOL.
    Dude is probably stoked he got $40 for the old stuff.
    You stoked because you can use it. Cool.

    Riding a 2000 said it best. You can probably make $40 of the stuff you don't need in return!

    You have to love it when the seller either doesn’t care how much they get for what they are selling or they don’t know the worth of what they’re selling. The latter is how Duccmann got his 8 spoke for essentially $90! An eBay seller had a 1991 front and rear wheel for $180 shipped. I was able to secure the sale for him and then Duccmann sold off the front for $90.

    He said any night after 5 or this weekend. No way was I waiting for someone else to swoop in. It meant driving to the east side during rush hour (for those of you not from Seattle, not a person's number one choice), but it really wasn't bad at all. I was gonna go get some beers and let return traffic die down, but I made such good time I decided to get back in my hood for beers. Hour total in the car listening to my book. Score.
