Hey guys,

So I was driving around town today and saw this thing on the street. Pulled over to take a look and ended up taking it for a test ride. Absolute beast... Super fun and handled well. He wants 2000 bucks and wont go lower. Its a 97 Bandit 1200 with some custom work done. I know there are a couple funny looking bits but the motor and tranny felt awesome and it was a rocket. 29,000 total miles. Just looking for some input on it and whether or not its a good deal. The only thing that's troubling is that there is no odometer because it was in the fairing he removed. So how does that work when I go to register it?

I can't help but like it.... I dunno if its worth 2k or not, really depends how well the engine has been taken care of... But damn, I like the way that bike looks. The more I look at it the more I like.

As far as registering it, tell them whatever you want, its not like they're going to go out and look. (none I took it to ever did)

Well the guy says its well taken care of and starts right up and idles and sounds great... oil in the viewing window looked fresh too. The thing rips... I turned out of the neighborhood and laid down a 50 foot tire mark. I think I am going to get it. hhaah

he changed the frame for the tank mount and said it was a 750 suzuki tank... im buying it after work. harley fat boy wheel and tire up front with buell disc brakes. the rear wheel and tire is off of a honda i think lol and the rear swinger and forks are stock. all i know is, holy shit the thing is fun.

Figure ill ride the piss out of it. like i said, i was leaving tire tracks on the test drive. it was awesome. ahah ive ridden a lot of bikes before but none this fun.... including a 2013 s1000rr bimmer.

I had to look for a second to find the plate. Good eye and it really is a cool bike.

I like how the exhaust is mounted. Cool small details. I'm not even a fan of pod filters, but they look good on that bike. The only thing I'm really not fond of is the mirror. I'd have to swap it to a small round one like shotgun's or something.

Feedback and advice are appreciated. The bike is filthy and that breather is dirty as hell so I gotta clean a bunch of stuff

Wicked. That breather is for the crank. Smoke may be desert dust
