Evos are riding, too. My ‘92 XL cost me £2800 in 2015, and it would make at least £3750 now.
I better not tell you what I paid for my 93 1200 evo with only 17k miles then. I know the last 3 owners, all mates.

I don't buy on E'Bay after they sided with a NEW vender with fewer than 50 sales over a $33.66 item I never received and FedEX said was delivered to a cancer specialist and did not come from the vender I ordered my item from.

Because the tracking number was delivered...to the incorrect address....they never checked with FedEx....they accepted the venders word...they refused to refund my money

So much for their guarantee of satisfaction...
