If anyone is interested in this bike, I'd like to sell it before I move (two weeks from now) and would make a decent deal happen. Please PM me or contact from the ad for more information!

Forum member discount! Price drop to $2,200 for the month of May...So "salesman" sounding it hurts but it's true. I'd like it to go to a good home who will appreciate it.

Thanks for looking Smiley

this is a great price for a good lookin' CB1.
It always seems that when I get done finishing my CB1, a dozen pop up for sale that are in great shape and I would have spent $1800 less than what I spent in fixing mine.
Sheeesh......don't that beat all.

I'm genuinely shocked at the lack of interest on this bike...I guess I'll be keeping it  Undecided

A polishing project for another day I suppose.

Dude...don't fret.
it's not the right time to sell it.
Your price is very fair....really it is.
But....
1) the market is saturated with CB1s now.
2) every rider who was "considering" to purchase a used bike, has done so already (remember - "timing is everything".)
3) perhaps you can try again either in the FALL when folks in your area are looking for that special "winter project". which by the way yours needs nothing so feel confident in that statement.
4) or you may want to repost it in the spring 2018 (I'd say start to display/offer it up around Feb/March 2018) so the riders who were looking for a CB1 see yours.

So again...don't fret dude.
keep it for a bit. I know....."I wanna sell I wanna sell I wanna sell".....I know, everyone falls into that psychosis.

Thank you for the encouragement. It helps. And yes, I'm stuck in the psychosis of wanting to sell, since I'm moving in a short while. The reality is I don't NEED to sell it, and I can just ride it to its new home 40 minutes away and park it in the new garage for tinkering and polishing.

Well, the way I see it then is you have two options:
A) you ride it to its new home and you tinker with it and put it up for sale this fall or in the spring of 2018 or.....
B) you sell it a a low-discounted price if you are in dire need to sell it and take whatever money you are willing to take to part with the bike.

that's it, two options.....

I, personally, would hold out. its a good looking bike. Seems to be intact and from your description on the CL list...seems to be in good working order. you may want to add pictures of the inside of the tank, tank closeups, description of the tank condition if indeed you move forward with trying to sell it one more time.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

All valid points, I have the photos so I should just upload them already. I figured if anyone was really interested in it (especially for that price) they'd contact me and ask for the photos directly. The resolution on CL pics is horrendous, so detail is lost regularly.

I'll stick with the current ad til it expires and re-do it this fall. Hopefully anyone who is looking for a CB-1 on here will see the thread and come knocking at that time asking if it's still for sale.

Tell ya what...if indeed its still up for sale this fall (say a deadline of Sept 1st) and I have the funds I'll buy it from you and have it shipped to my location.
it's a good specimen, I'm a bit perplexed it hasn't sold either but again I'll attribute it to....timing timing timing...

I'd expect nothing more than the miles going up....."smiles per mile" factor on these little gems I wouldn't think it any other way.

Updated the ad with better pictures. I've had several inquiries after I put this up on our forum. Thank you all for the interest!

I wish I came across a deal like this a year ago, I bought mine for $1600 and have put at least that much more into getting it into the condition and the look that I wanted.

They are easy to sell, but hard to come by. If you don't need to sell it, then don't. You will rediscover and appreciate it in the years to come.
