    Last one sold for about $105k on eBay 4-5 years ago. Hands down the bike at the top of my list if I had fu money!

    Nice. I'd hardtail it, rake the front out, put a springer front end on it and make it into yet another captain america replica.

    What about lowering it so you’d be able to touch both feet down at stops?

    NO way man. That would ruin it.

    Now...adding a ~6' chrome swingarm and nitrous would make it dope. Boyyyyyyyy...

    I remember seeing the discovery pictures of that bike a while ago - same ones that are in the ad. I thought the guy had already flipped it and moved on. I guess not.

    Damn. Nice bike for sure, but north of 100k? I could fill my shop with cool ass bikes and not even reach half that amount.

    It's black
    Do you mean the alternator cover on the left side?

    That would normally have a big stator and rotor/flywheel there, so instead it has a little cap over the end of the crank.

    I remember seeing one of those at Grayboy Kawasaki in Peoria, IL when I was a kid and they were expensive back then. I want to say it was somewhere between 12,900 and 15,900 and a regular bike was probably 4-5K.

    Edit: Found this while searching. Evidently dealer cost was 10,999 and this was the bike I saw.

    You do realize that this is one of 30 actual factory race bikes? This is not your normal run of the mill ELR replica.

    exactly why i asked about that stator ...

    why would you ever modify such a rare numbers bike?
