You're lucky the dark horse was out there when the sporty died. The white horse don't know shit about Harley's.
My knee is still sore from borrowing my friends '67 stroker with the magneto.

I did have a set of motorbike rules in that:
(tongue in cheek Fr. Guido Sarducci and Cheech & Chong)
1) she musta hava the 2 biga spoked wheels.
2) she musta bea 2 cylinder so she feels like a motorbike shoulda.
3) she musta bea air only cooled, lacking the additional complexity of the liquid cooling system.
I broke the third rule.

The newest addition, a 2006 Ducati 620 Dark Multistrada. Just bought it for $2500. The seller lowered the price because it has !3,000 miles and is due for it's major maintenance. At the dealership, that's pretty expensive, but no big deal for us do it yourself folks. Very comfortable sort of riding position for an old guy. About the same weight and horsepower as a pre-MKIII 850 Commando with some mild engine mods.

I've never messed with Desmo valve gear. Please post pics when you tackle that job. A Ducati tech at Indy MotoGP told me desmo valve adjustment is an 8-hour pro-rated job for a trained mechanic.

I think so too. Part of the reason is that it is due for its 20,000 km service, and the PO figured he should deduct $1,000 for that. He still had the receipt for the 10,000 km service, and the dealer charged him $938.00 for that! That included $350 just for labor for the valve adjustment, and $400 just for labor for the rest of the service, plus the cost of parts for the remainder. I just ordered all the parts (new belts, etc.) needed for the service ($202, including shipping), and will do the work myself. Should be interesting. It is my first time with a desmo engine, but at least I have the factory service manual that came with the bike. There are a couple of factory tools needed to measure the valve shims, but I should be able to make them on the lathe. There's also an electronic device used to measure the belt tension, but I think I can manage without that. The cost was also lower because it has scratches on the left side of the fairing from a tip-over. No cracks or serious damage, just scratched paint. Plus it has a small oil leak, that I am 90% sure comes from the O-rings that seal the clutch slave cylinder, a common Ducati problem. On the plus side, I also got a set of Cordura bags, the original silencers, an unused Power Commander, a new rear stand, a new air filter, and some other odds and ends with it.

Always exciting to sort out a new bike.

I got this 1974 Yamaha DT250 in November, did a mild resto. Paid $1200, 4300mi, it was on non-opp so easy to register. Didn't need much, tires, chain, sprockets etc. Only items that weren't original were rear blinkers and passenger pegs. Even had original tires. It had a blue licence plate but the PO decided he wanted to change to a disabled plate, go figure, so the orig plate had to be turned in.

It was entirely disassembled, and the "doohicky" (balancer chain adjuster) had failed (as they ALL do), cracking the case. JB Weld & a couple of evenings to re-assemble it, and voila! 30K miles, relatively low.
