    Hmm; the XVS650 is a "Classic" now is it?

    It's like a CX500 Custum, Clemmo, it's an _instant_ Classic!

    I think you mean "insistent classic" as there's always one of the
    buggers for sale somewhere. Probably the same one, as surely they
    didn't sell more than one?

    "Replica"?? :p

    Look-a-like, yes, but hardly a replica. This bike actually handles well
    around corners... For a cruiser, anyway. ;-)

  9. Exactly, it's as much a look alike as a replica!
    Bet it scrapes _way_ before my Harley does!

    And he's trying to replicate the Harley price point as well...

    Given they're going for about 10K new, 9K for a second hand one with 40K on
    the clock is laughable

    (good learner bike though)

    I rode an XVS650 and an 883 sportster back to back - the Yam looked way
    fatter and plusher but actually had surprisingly more clearance (but there
    wasn't much in either case)
    hehehe. That's cheatin' Pete.

    it's only the depth that varies :)

    I'm sure you'll find that the price is not /that/ laughable, especially
    considering the bikes condition. As always, though, the price is
    negotiable.

    But I'm glad you had a chance to ride that 650. I loved riding my one
    so much, I upgraded to the VStar 1100! :)

    I dunno about "classic", it's no GPz900...
    Well, it can't hurt to try I suppose. Although you've got a better
    chance of getting that price through the paper than here, especially
    if you wait until midsummer.

  15. One of my neighbours just down the road bought one for $7k recently, from a
    dealer. In just like new condition.
