Very nice CB 550, but price seem to be a bit high.

^ Fuckin East Van hipsters...

Don't get me wrong, that thing is cool, but I don't understand how you have the audacity to think you can buy a bike for $1000, say you have $6000 in receipts, and expect to sell it for $7000. Shit doesn't work like that.

I would MAYBE pay $5000 for that thing if it was immaculate down to the last bolt, and needed absolutely nothing.

Just another dumbass trying to make a name for himself as a custom builder. Its the only build "featured" on that website.. he probably owns that too.

My build has a custom working monoshock + modern front end and some very expensive parts and I am nowhere near that number.

Maybe. . Had a couple of offers so far that I turned down. I just know that if I get on it again it'll be impossible to get off ... So knowing the condition it's in right now, now is the time to sell it if I'm ever going to... I'm just not in a hurry to see it go

Awww thats a shame!! You should just store it and keep it!! I loved reading your build thread and you've spent so much time and effort into it!! Hard to let such a beauty go....

Nevertheless all the best and I at least hope it goes to a good owner

Street Bike Done Rite $12,888

Huuuuhhhhhhh.........

The bike is 5 years old with 8467 KMs on it ... not bad. The (pearl) white Special Editions with the blue frame are really popular... but... at $12,888 that's more than the bike would have been brand new and his comment, "All this bike Will do is go up in value," might be a little off... good luck to him, regardless!

-confirmed, bike was $11,999 CDN new.

People are hoping that supply and demand are on their side.

That Ruck is cool but I'd give him maybe $5-6k tops. And the placement of the rad is questionable unless one likes toasted legs.

Well its not really a ruckus. you could say its half ruck or a CBRUCK. Its got a CBR125R motor with racing gears. Its goes like stink. 1 Of a kind which is why the price is so steep. All parts are highend too.

He sold his Custom GY6 Ruck for $7K.

To some it may not be worth that much, but there are also tonnes of people out there with money that would buy this. Hell a turbo ruck goes for about $10K, and doesn't go nowhere near as fast as the CBRUCK. Not to mention the headaches of tuning GY6 motor.

That motor only makes 13hp, I wouldn't say it would go like stink. For $12000 you can buy a 1 year old 600cc sportbike with 120hp+.

I used to have a yamaha bws with a race 2-stroke 80cc making around 16hp at the crank (plus upgraded trans, cdi etc). It was fast up to 80km/h but still no where near as quick as my sportbikes, it also only cost $2200 (including purchasing the scooter).

It goes like stink for a 13HP motor. I love my CBR 125R and think a Ruckus with a 125R motor in it is sweet. But there are way better ways to spend $12k.

Given the Ruck's cult status, it'll probably sell for something big.

Ya, but your 80cc race engine also isn't meant as a daily. That's why they are only good for about 5K km's before blowing, so then you lose reliability. You dont on this ruck and its not about getting a sport bike. Its about having a one off ruckus. In the end someone will buy it for $12K easily. Maybe not you or me, but someone will.

buying a ruckus is like buying a harley. you buy it for the culture/community. there are far more better bikes than harley but people buy it still. having a one off ruckus might nbot be appealing for other (mostly cost vs. benefit factor) but its awesome for ruckus people

I'm not too big on buying previously owned helmets due to the unknown but came across this Pista GP on CL and pretty good deal for someone.

also the 1 year old 600 won't be illegal lol.
if you ever crashed the "CBRUCK" or the GY6 one also, unless you changed your registration and were paying the correct rate class you would be denied coverage or at best offered the value of a normal ruckus.
