A couple of crash damaged 650s. This is where mine would have ended up after my recent incident

The red one doesn't look damaged at all? (and sold for £1,500!)

The silver one has been down hard as the engine bars are a bit bent (sold for £1,100)

people seem to pay high prices for these damaged bikes??

Ebay germany

Das ist ein Projekt

1989, 17,000 miles

800 euros

The problems:
It takes gas badly. (It works with a warm engine.)
It has a slight fall damage from a previous owner. Various cladding parts are posted accordingly. And the steering is a bit crooked.
And the battery is almost certainly empty.
I just don't find the certificate (registration certificate part I). (Letter and old letter are available)
