Good engine, good transmission, good build but nowhere near $9,500 good. Could be worth a look for $6k.

Battery needs a heat shield. Fame is a bit long for long term comfort. Choking the engine to shutdown is not healthy for the engine.
Only being able to do 60mph is a concern, even a 13hp yanclone can get a bike up to 70mph.

Looks good - running very clean with hardly a sniff of smoke.

Those motors are usually governed to 3000 and with the shaft drive gearing that's prob. why its cruising at 60. He mentions in the text that fitting a stronger governor spring will increase the speed and he's right.

Don't like the way he stops the motor though, :D

Well the reserve is higher than i can go for it, which i would have predicted in all honesty. Another one bites the dust lol

just went through another round on ebay without hitting the reserve or in fact getting as high as it got last time. He either needs to admit the market sets the price or wait until the market changes to match his hopes.
