Some medical bills are forcing me to sell some bikes. I thought I'd offer them here before doing craigslist.
First up is my 1994 Yamaha Combat II (Seca II) 16,000mi. Needs valve adjust, chain and sprockets, and cosmetics.
$1,100 or best offer.


Next is the 1973 Yamaha RD250. 13,842mi. New standard rings and every part made of rubber. Too many new parts to list. Needs only paint.
I need to get about $3,000 for this bike.


And finally my Waterbuffalo (1972 Suzuki GT750).
Started to do a cafe race build to this bike, but I still have all the parts if someone wanted to restore it.
Have installed Omar's Cafe bars, rear set controls, retro shocks, 3-into-one grand prix pipe, 1/4 fairing, and it also features a Rick Barnes Designs bum-stopper seat pan.
All bearings, forks, and brakes are rebuilt. Frame has been painted. Engine is not rebuilt, but was running great when I dis-assembled the bike.
I bought this bike from the original owner, who bought it new in Monte Vista.
Features one-year-only Mikuni slide carbs, and Double leading shoe front brake that is worth $1,000 alone.
I would like to  get $3,000 for this too.

Before pic:
I started a build log on this website if you want more detailed pics.


You guys can tell me if I'm crazy for what I'm asking.
Rick: 970.243.5094
May have more to offer up before all this is done, stay tuned...

Sorry to hear that  :(    Can't you just send them a couple bucks a month? Hate for a guy to have to sell his toys

Yeah, I can, but I don't like to do that.
Plus... there is this other bike I want to get. (just so you know things aren't that bad)

I also just realized while I was cleaning out behind the garage, that I have a 1982 Yamaha Viagra 920 that I can sell too.
The previous owner rode it once, dropped it and put it under a cover for ten or eleven years. The title is open, but dated, so ...? $100 bucks?

You might want to talk to your doctor first about possible side effects  ;D

You should surely call your doctor if your rides last more than 8 hours. ;)

I always called them that because it seemed like old guys that decided to ride late in life tended to buy them!

Anybody give me $1,500 for the WaterBuff? That's my bottom dollar.

I sold the Yellow Seca II.

I am keeping the RD.
