    Saw this listed on the local craigslist last night for 800 so decided to go check it out this morning.......when I asked about the price the guy said well I will take half the asking price :eek: so didn't even haggle on it pulled out the cash and loaded it up.......it runs and brakes seem to work ok. Rear brake sticks a little so am going to rebuild all the calipers and forks and change out all the fluids.....not a 400 but at least its an XS ;)

    Not bad. There's a similar one here listed for over 2000.

    Cheapest one I found was 1500 local. There was one basket case for 500 but it had sat outside for who knows how long. This one popped up and I had to check it out. I just think I got really lucky and caught the guy at the right time. Hell I was there for a few hours chatting with him and looking at his other bikes. Hell to load it up we put it on his lift and I backed the truck up to it........now I need one of those lifts :D

  5. A very nice find! Here in the UK, a ratty xs1100 whould set you back more than £3000. and one like you brought for $400. Would set you back at least £5,500 so you grabbed yourself a real bargain there!

  7. Your not kidding, IF I could get one is such good condition over here, for a price like you paid, I'd have ripped his arms off, to get the keys, and paperwork, from him!
