'06 With a Blown Engine (Austin, TX)

Anyway, the bike is otherwise in fair shape. It's had its share...

I am guessing you missed the part where this is my only vehicle and I need something running more than I need a project. Dx

At least I know what's wrong with this bike. Who knows about the others.
