I'm in the market fore a XR400. Meaning I have seen a lot of adds for XRs. This bike might be a deal, if the guy could shut up and give some other than macho info. Didn't even say what year it was. Or maybe I fell asleep during the presentation.

Check out what I just got.

we are now a Victory Motorcycle dealer!

I have bikes in stock now.

This is the time to come in and find out what you could be riding this summer.

Call Dan or Matt and we can talk about these amazing bikes.

Lets melt the snow and rinse off the salt so we can ride.
Test rides every day.

Ride One and You'll Own One!



Um, I'm thnking that if you're trolling CL for customers you might want to A) mention the name of your dealership, and B) actually include a phone number so that, should one see your ad and want to "call Dan or Matt", one would have the means to do so...

How the hell do you bore and stroke a 600 out to 1000CC's?

I mean, there isn't enough room in the crankcase for the added stroke, even IF you carved a custom one-off crankshaft out of steel yourself on a lathe.

And the cylinders are so damn close together, if you attempted to bore then engine that large, you'd be seriously poking into the water jackets, if not siamesing the bores altogether!!!

I'm calling Bull$hit.

Ape hangers, custom snake skin seat, army green paint job, a brand new harley rear tire, and a loud exhaust.This bike is a great beginner bike. It is 250 CC's. I am six foot one 205 pounds and it goes down the highway at 80 + mph. This is a very clean and well maintained bike. Call Mitch 734-660-5233.
