That same bike in XLH version would sell for 4 grand tops.

For 8 grand I could build a much better looking bike with go power to match.

Not really a CAPA. I think the seller made that up to make the motorcycle appear to be more valuable, which it is not

My understanding is that "Capa" is the word for a Bull Fighters red cloak.

I think he has confused it with "Mierda" ?

The meaning I found has to do with a class of race cars. CAPA is the initials of the 4 guys who founded the class. Minimal, stripped down racing vehicles.

Are we guessing he actually meant "Cafe" ?

(He types worse than me ?)

I found the one with the Kosman name on it particularly offensive as there was not a single Kosman part on it, nor is it a flat track machine (which Sandy specialized in).
