    '81 SR Caff Racer

    Sadly, my treasured Caff Racer must go. I have 'aggravated' my dodgy right knee too much; not that it is a hard starter, it is not, but my old heavily rebuilt knee is iffy anymore.
    Sensible mods one end to the other, as is said, too much to list right now (Ive got about a legal page size list).....does come with the Gazi Hyper X shocks ($$$), N-R Performance rearsets and a new auto body shop dark green paintjob last winter. Just those add up to more than half my price.
    I will get some pics up soon or can easily send them to your e-dress from the I-Pad.
    Does it go? You wont be disappointed, it rips. Turn-key bike, clear title.
    $3000

    Don't get rid of the SR just rebuild the knee again.

    Here is a link to the old forum where I had first posted it up:
    http://www.sr500forum.com/forum/view...p?f=15&t=12596
    Been some changes/rerurbs since then but it other than the color now dark green and Gazi shocks it looks pretty much the same.
