2003 XR650R - collector bike on CL ... $31,600?

I've been looking around for a plated XR650R... found this one. At first I thought the seller made a mistake on the price.

Is this worth $31K? ...

I recently saw a Triumph Triple for sale ... super clean unrestored, low miles, in the mid $30K.

Just wondering..

Anyone who pays that has to be a sandwich short of a picnic.....

If he meant $3,100, them I would take it. If this dude is serious, he must be living in his own world

Must be a mis-print or joke. Back around 1984-86 here in Canada you had the yamaha rz500 and suzuki rg500 2 stroke street bikes that went for about $5k new. Not available in the states. I remember a few guys back in the early 90's buying all the used ones they could find cheap and heading across the border and selling them for almost $10k a piece. They are worth even more today. I had an rz500 myself. should have kept it.

I would say misprint, however he wrote it twice. Once in the header and again in the text ...

I'm familiar with some of the rare 2-stroke bikes. I owned a '79 Yamaha Daytona Special. I find them now approaching $8K.

I just don't know if there was a special California XR650R this guy speaks about... "owned by the Baja 1000 Turtle Solo "IRONMAN" Racer" ... who is that?

Madness..If I was in the States I'd be into the below like a rat up a drainpipe..$5000 worth there in NZ dollars..

 

Honda history for the tiny amount of $1200..The ultimate dirt weapon for its day and super wheelie machine..

Almost complete and totally stock..Can't go wrong at that price.

Don't know the guy... what makes him worth $30K plus? I'd give him $5K for the bike.

OK .. tell him I'll give him $4K for the bike. That thing is probably beat to death. Obviously he hasn't sold it, he keeps raising the price... he keeps going it will be listed for $100K.

 

Never seen someone use raising the price strategy on CL... maybe he should advertise it in Hemmings.

It seems to be a "fund raiser" for the books that he wants print.??

He  should run some type of raffle or auction for his bike then,,He's surely not going to get anyone to pay $41000 for it

just because he's done a few "ride there,,ride Baja,,ride homes" on it even if it is a semi charity deal..It does look in pretty

good nick but not 40000 dollars worth of goodness..

For $41000.00 you could buy 6 new xr650l models.
