Craziest thing you've ever found on a used bike?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a 1996 CR250r for a steal!(400$) It runs and runs very good. Has a few aftermarket goodies but looks like SHIIT! I got it and put it up on the lift stand and began removing plastics, and bolt on stuff. I removed the aftermarket swing arm and found a little zip lock baggy of what looked and smelt like marijuana.. It's now down the toilet! But I'm aware it could have been grass that smelt like marijuana but I'm almost certain it was the real deal...

Not something I found more like lost. Bought a 85 Xr200. the PO decided he needed a lot of bolts from it, so it was missing almost half the bolts. anywhere it had 2, the second one was taken.

What brand aftermarket swingarm? Where on/in it could a baggy be stored/hidden? Very unusual.

ohh I meant skid plate!! It's a moose skid plate. It looks like it's off a different bike but was just put on this one. The baggy was just jimmied up under the motor and above the skid plate! I'm guessing some were along the lines a you get kid owned it and put it there so his parents wouldn't find it!

I went to the bike shop to get something, and also bought a part for my buddy to save him the trip.  My bike and his part were in the back of my truck, and while I was at work he retrieved his part.  It was like $10 and I said don't worry about it.  A week later I went riding, then cleaning my bike I unbuttoned the airbox to clean the filter and there was a $10 bill. 

 

I had completely forgot about my friend, so I sent out a mass text to my buddies saying, "Not saying that I mind, but who tipped me $10 for the last riding trip?"  It was a pleasant surprise.

you could sold it and made some money lol

 

You say, "Whip it or flip it.."  I guess you woulda flipped it, made some cash.  I just woulda given it to a buddy of mine who smokes out all the time.  Or if you sell it for say $50, then the bike only cost you $350.00 and that's not bad!!

I didn't buy the bike

 

But I met someone who replaced the exhaust packing in his muffler with toilet paper because he had no packing left and     Quote "It's practically the same stuff" Unquote

I was working on an old scooter recently that hadn't been run in years.   Good compression, spark, fuel etc.  Just wouldn't fire.  I finally found the mud dauber wasp nest in the muffler.  I couldn't even bang it loose or pound a screw driver through it.  I couldn't blow any air through it.  Had to cut the muffler open and clean it out.  Started first kick after that.
