I'm paying extra for the rubber mallet instead of the steel hammer.   lmao lmao lmao

Also hiring a scooter for $6 per day to be just like Harry's postie bike.  2funny 2funny

And I'm heading to Bali after Xmas to get 6 of my teeth crowned.

I can't afford to get Subaru mechanics in Australia to do them any more than the dentist prices.  lmao lmao lmao

I'd suggest being confident in the cleanliness of the dentist as well-any tooth drilling can potentially be a infection risk as seen in other businesses there such as tattooists....

However if the dentist gives you a choice between rubber and steel mallets they sound like a fine establishment.......... 2wink

They make it look good.  :grandpa:

However if I'm not comfortable with what I see, I'll simply walk another kilometer to the next well advertised place.

And there are at least another 6 within walking distance if it comes to that.

But at $3,000 instead of $10,000 I'll take a shot.  cr@sh cr@sh

Meh! I'd rather take my risks riding a motorbike.
The last time I was in the US I hired a scooter in Key West at US$30 per day....helmet optional.

I rode a scooter in Bali's suburbs (Denpasar area) in 2013 & honestly, it was big enough for the tight squeeze.

It looks more hectic than it is, but everything is fair game including footpaths & drainage ditches.

A few Taxi's are aggressive, but everyone else is working together.  A taxi beat me at a game of chicken & I needed to push away from a bluestone wall or go in a ditch, which left me with a sore hand for a few days.

I got a laugh though from lots of people beeping their horn to let me know where they are, which is common practice.

My right ear doesn't work at all, so my hearing aid says they were all on my left!   lmao lmao lmao

That is nice.....I'll keep an eye on the auction, curious what it will go for.
I wonder what it went for?
I've found another one for you Victor, it's just a pity that it's a dealer selling it.
And look at the nice metalflake Silver paint job Doddsy!

That's a nice bike....thanks.

The Vermont title means (most likely) that the bike had a lost title and the owner applied to Vermont for a replacement title - in the US, Vermont is one of a couple of states that make re-titling a vintage bike easy.

I've seen several CL350's and SL350's come up for sale on CL lately.

The CL350's command a good price in NZ-I think they are a great bike-but so is my CL400 Street Tracker, with one less cylinder to have to worry about.

Oh dear.

That was a sign of the times.

Houses had cement sheeting brick veneer look-a-like's.

Cars had plastic wood on the dash & some American woodies were made with stickers.

So why not a bike with woodgrain stick-on's.

Not my thing,, but it will be someone's.  happy0158 happy0158

How about this one Victor?

YIKES.  :2scared: For a minute I thought maybe it was a Japanese market version of a CT but it appears it is someone's idea of an aesthetic upgrade to the original color????

Yech.  :nyah:

yes and we probably all remember the custom specials of the 70's/80's...e.g.XS650 special... handle bar "tassles","coffin tanks", etc etc ..tastes change over time....

Nice....thanks.  I wonder what it will bring.....that's the cleanest '71 CT90 I've seen.

There's a pretty nice '80 not far from here for $1650:

And another one Victor. 2rolleyes While I don't have a problem with people modifying their bikes, I really like to see a bike or car that's kept in original condition or as close to it as possible.

Hi Harry, thanks....that's a really nice CB350.  '71 was a good year in general for Japanese bikes.  When I lived in Hawaii I was lusting for a '71 SL350 (I was riding a used '70 Yamaha 125 enduro) until I test-drove a '71 Yamaha RT1-B 360.  One trip to secure financing and I dropped off my 125 in trade and rode the 360 home.  Hands-down the best motorcycle I've owned - or ridden.

Nice CB350's turn up on Seattle CL often....seems only one right now, a '69:

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcy/d/seattle-1969-honda-cb350/7043471288.html

If you like seeing older bikes for sale, keep an eye on Seattle CL.....lots of interesting bikes of all makes turn up.

G'day Victor, I really hope you don't mind me pestering you with these posts. I have a friend that has a SL 350 sitting in his yard under a tarp, so it's showing it's age but he won't sell it because it was his first bike.
Not that I'm in the market for another bike, but I do enjoy window shopping (sort of like my wife does with shoes).
Having said that, I did buy a Corvette last week. Didn't you already own one, I hear you ask? As a matter of fact I did.....in fact the very same car after the new owner got into an argument with a truck and lost.
Still, everyone needs a project or two, so we'll see what happens there.   2idiot

Hi Harry....I don't mind at all, I love to window shop myself.....I look through the local CL daily and Seattle's CL every few days.....I'm still not well enough to actually buy and ride a bike but I love to look.....

Here's a pretty nice and fairly priced SL350....not sure I like the color it got painted but a clean bike nonetheless...looks like a Corvette fan, too....

Here's another interesting Honda, seems underpriced:

And a CT, very nice but $$$$:

G'day Victor,
I have to agree with you on these bikes. The pea green isn't a colour that I would choose, the CBX looks like a bargain at that price (probably worth at least double that out here),  and the seller of the CT is possibly a tad optimistic price wise. The really nice little one with the silver panels on BAT is only at $1700 with a couple of days to go on the auction.

Now look what you started Harry....

Doing my usual evening scan of CL and came across two to share:

https://portland.craigslist.org/clc/mcy/d/canby-1969-honda-cb160/7050598836.html

 And this pricey but nice SL125:

Sorry Victor, but I just can't help myself.
A couple of nice bikes there. I didn't even know that they made a CB 160 and assumed that the 250 was the smallest CB that they made.

I'm surprised you didn't get the CB160's in Oz...I think they were popular here, sold as baby Hawks - baby to the CB72 and CB77Hawk and Super Hawks.

Here's a nice CB550 example, pretty cheap if this is a real ad:

I'm not sure whether we got them in OZ, but I don't remember seeing them.
But I have to say at that stage of my life I was into Yamahas and Kawasakis of much bigger capacity, and even had a short flirtation with a Ducati which didn't end well.
It wasn't until I returned to riding in my 50s that I bought my Postie bike which led to me buying my first CX.
