Well, after watching eBay for a weekend, I won the final bid on this bike. 1981 Suzuki Bandit GS450L. It has 14900 miles on it and looks to be in pretty good condition. There is a crack in the left rear blinker lens, and it said the rear tire is great, but the front is a little weather checked, so I will replace it for safety's sake. Not a big deal. Everything else is good looking. I think I paid a little more than I should, but I really wanted it. I think it should have gone for closer to $850 900. I picked it up for $1050, which isn't really that bad. I am leaving in a little bit to go down to Oshkosh and pick it up with my dad. I am going to store it at his place until my GF's dad come down in two weeks with a trailer and bring it up to MI. My dad wanted to give me his 84 Honda Sabre 750, but I felt like it was too much engine for me to start off with. I feel better with less than 500cc-class for a year or two to get my wings before I drop a couple grand on a Shadow VLX 600. I was in the market for a Honda Rebel 250, but this one was half as much. I sat on a Suzuki in town and it really fit me well. I didn't ride it cause I don't have my endorsement yet, taking the class in July. Insurance quote from Progressive is only $17/mo liability only. Not too bad. Here is a eBay photo. I will post more when I pick it up. How did I do?
