    If you’re looking at the number by the oil filler then that is the oils capacity. For the actual cc’s, look at the little rectangle on the front of the head between exhaust 2 and 3. Or, look at the first three alpha-numeric characters in the BIG rubbed rectangle where the ENGINE NUMBER is that would match the VIN if it’s still the original engine.

    With that price I am guessing that they want all their pats money back. Not going to happen.

    Yea, I was thinking $100 is about all that's worth.

    I've never understood this fascination with hard-tail bikes.
    This is funny to watch, Superbike Champ Troy Corser racing a 1928 supercharged BMW without suspension.



    Here's another where he crashes it

    How hard is it to get a title for something like that is your state? In NC a bonded title can be had for a bit of effort and a few dollars, a PITA but possible. In NY the DMV flatly refused to even consider it, gave me a short, harsh "NO" when I asked about. That looks like a pretty decent candidate to save intact if title issues are not insurmountable. Keys can be had or recreated also. I hate to see clean (ish) bikes lost. Then again I have been reminded by friends (and wife) "you can't save them all".
