1991 cbr600f2 [sold]

>>> SOLD! <<<

Read the whole damn sad story before you get all excited...

1991 CBR600F2 for sale. Clean OH title. Garage kept. 19,700 miles. New tires (<300 mi), complete overhaul of carbs (tank-boiled by WHH, new OEM carb kits, tune by Brian Mullins Cycle Works), many other new parts (clutch cable, throttle cables, vacuum petcock, battery, air filter, etc), maintenance performed (oil/filter change, brake fluid bled/refreshed, new coolant, new grips). Has an obscenely loud aftermarket exhaust but comes with an OEM can off a '95-'98 F3, which I believe is a direct bolt-on. Fuel was drained a couple of years ago and battery was kept on a tender, so it should run as it did after the rebuild.

I think I'm throwing in the towel on this project. It had been stuck in the back of a garage by the PO a long time ago and forgotten. I bought it years ago because it was a true survivor--never wrecked, raced, squided, beat on, all the OEM plastic was complete and perfect down to the last tab, plus it had the weird black/hot pink/electric arc blue/silver graphics that screamed 90s Japanese motorcycle. I "invested" too much effort, time and money bringing it back to the street as a labor of love...and 2 weeks after I completed the build, I hit a deer less than 1000 ft from my driveway. Didn't go down but shattered the front plastic clip and headlight. I've purchased nearly all the parts to put it back together, but of course the used replacement parts don't match the OEM "My Little Pony" colors. I'm left with zero interest in completing the repairs. I'm done! Prolly make a nice cheap little track rat, but at 67, I'm not buying race leathers so I can go find another way to break my bones....

I have a tentative offer of $500 but am not quite ready to part with it at that price. I know I'll never recoup the money I poured into it but looking to make myself feel a bit better about my stupid infatuation with this little monster. Asking $995 for the bike and all the rebuild parts I've purchased (headlight, front fairing). Gotta be worth more than double that in parts alone. I will be lowering the price by $100 every 3rd day, so $895 on 7/14, $795 on 7/17, $695 on 7/20, $595 on 7/23, at which point it will be offered to the initial interested party at $500. If it doesn't sell at that point, it goes to CL.

Pics are on FB in the Cinti Cafe Racer group, but it's a closed group and you can't view unless you're a member. I can no longer link pics from Photobucket here. Don't ask me why a photo hosting site won't let me link to a 3rd-party website....piss on 'em! If you're interested enough to follow thru, I can email you.

Re: 1991 cbr600f2

I forgot to mention that it makes me sad to see this bike up on the auction block.

This is not a serious question, correct?

If you don't know when I'm serious and when I'm not, then my sarcasm has been taken to a new level. Thanks for the compliment.

Why are you selling all of your cool shit? Are you moving into a tiny house?
