Nice bike and appears to need very little to be race ready. That's a BIG plus.

I'd pay up to $2200 or maybe a bit more. I've been pricing these and like them, but just haven't found the bike yet.

Plus the wife says I have too many bikes already . . . impossible of course.

Use a sniper program to put in your bid. I like auctionsniper.com

Also, email the owner and see if he's interested in doing an off-ebay cash deal. You give him $$$, he cancels the auction. That's what I would do.

You can find old 78-79 CR250's for $300-500 that need work all the time. Don't pay over $1500 for the bike, they are just too easy to find in good shape. I actually found 2 in the last month by me, one for $800 race ready (a great runner, but not as pretty as that one) and a $300 runner that needed about $300 to be race ready. Parts are easy to get too. :eek: Keep looking, a better deal is out there. :applause:

They ALL seem to be up your way. Oregon must have some kind of magnetic attraction for nice CR250s.

Vintage is pretty big in the PNW. :applause: Craigslist for Seattle and Portland always have good vintage bikes. :eek:
