Title: GS 650 - For a friend....
Post by: VaalBaas on November 16, 2021, 07:02:46 pm
Really for a friend wanting to start riding bigger bike, but on a budget.

A  F650 GS would be his choice, but anything other would be considered.

Looking for a runner, can be a fixer upper, and in the price range of about R30 000

Advice also welcome :thumleft:

And if it could be found in and around the Western Cape would be a bonus.

Not a GS650, but...

I have a 1995 XT600E that will be available soon. The odometer shows 35000km. I have replaced the following:
Sprocket and chains - PBR sprockets and DID X-ring.
New neck bearings.
New swingarm bearings.
Oil service and replaced airfilter and sparkplug.

There are some surface rust. Mechanically sound and runs really well.

Duro tires still have a lot left in them.

I bought it on this forum a while back but recently bought a CRF300 - can keep both.

Dis wat gebeur as mens nie die bike koop wat jy veronderstel was om in die eerste plek te gekoop het nie.
Die Djebel is verkoop, die CrossTourer is in die mark en die XT gaan binnekort in die mark wees. Dan los dit my met net die 300.
Moenie stress nie - THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!  :imaposer:

Eks jammer vir die wag...

Daar is nog geen besluit geneem en ook nie ander relings getref.

Sal maar bietjie later weer hier vra.
