    I like Radians, but something about the angle of the bottom of the tank looks awkward to me. I prefer parallel to the ground, or sloped upwards towards the bars.
    Also, from the first ad: "Please do not try to buy this without speaking to me or stopping by. " How exactly does one do that?

    Haha. Should have thought of that. My wife almost lined up a sale of my Rebel for me yesterday! Some guy was over to check out some stuff she had for sale and saw it in the garage, and wanted it. In her defense, she told him it's because I WILL be upgrading! To be honest, ease of reselling was part of the reason I bought it.

    Ummm.. extra zero? I've never seen a bike like that before, and it looks pretty mint, but 16k? C'mon! That's more than a new Ducati! I love the"TURBO" on the exhaust, though.

    If parts are cheap for the brakes, why doesn't he do them, it will improve odds of a good sale...

    550 four is what my dad's Honda CB550 said on the side covers.

    If you look at the background there is at least three other bikes back their and that is just on the one side of the garage. I would guess lots of the LTC was done to the bike and maybe even hand painted "550 four" on those covers? That or dkavanagh is right and those are Honda stickers on there...lol
