, consider the source man, he's living in an aluminum box. that has "under-skirting"..

Exactly what is wrong with trailers or the people that live in them? I don't see the problem.

Man that is it, I was planning on going to pick it up. Then seen the new front fender paint. And its still on the front tire and wheel. I may offer him $12.95 for it. Or a case of cheap beer.

BTW My son's first bike was an 07 250 Ninja "street fighter" aka abused bike by previous owners with no clothes.  THAT was an ugly bike!

Ya'll are pathetic - trashing that fella's bike like that. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, and this may have been his pride and joy.

I have to agree with connieklr... Go EZ on the guy.

His creation may-not be up to what some of us like, but the guy at least tried to bring an old Connie back.
I have a lot of respect for the try..

Ride safe, Ted

The only way I'd pay 800 for that is if he still had all the origional parts perfectly packaged in the deal.  Good parts bike at the very least,, and thats if the origional plastic is not damaged ,  and the engine sounds good to me.  I don't understand why someone would do that honestly.  Not to pick on the guy, but why not just buy a cruiser to start with?  To me that value decreases with modifications that divert from the original functional design modeling.  I mean, the faring and wind screen are so perfect on the C10, what a waste.  Hopefully he finds someone of like mind who loves the ,, Anti- Connie.
So this is a life?  Lets have some fun!

im guessing it was a crash damage bike and the fairings got busted, and he got it cheap. while i do hate the bar tassles and the led light bar, its actually saveable. I've considered getting a wrecked c10 and doing a naked version. if one come up cheap locally, i might. maybe put an airtech H2R (vintage) fairing on it. 


I do however find it funny that with all the 'old man' farkles i've seen hanging off of a lot of the bikes on here, that this bike is getting trashed as much as it is.
