FS: AR80 Project. with extra Motor and Frame

Ok. I've been very back and forth about selling this bike because its a "once ever" kind of bike. but Its time to hand it off to someone else. I'm overwhelmed with winter projects. So here it is, the longest description ever. no bullshit, all the details I can muster up. This is such an awesome bike that is not too far off from being on the road. just in time for the winter project zone.

So i picked this bike up a few years back and have been doing here and there work on it for a while.

-----------------------------------------------------

here's all the BAD

- carb probably needs to be totally replaced. its way too corroded inside. but that's an easy fix. tons of carbs fit this bike. I had a PHBG 21 on it to get it running. I've had it running twice. but it was hard to start. sounded good and all the lights worked though. the truth is I never had the time to put more then a few hours into this bike so I never even got a chance to see if i could tune it to start better.

-the tank needs a petcock and the gas cap is busted but works with a screwdriver. there were pinholes on the bottom I JBweld patched anything that looked like it might eventually become a pinhole. I've successfully fixed many tanks this way. I did clean it out and filled it up with gas and they held good. but that's when I found out that the petcock was busted.

-it has the wrong kick-start lever. it will work to tun the engine over but it makes contact with the rear brake. so it definitely needs the right one.

-it is missing the big front fairing, and the two side fairings. which is pretty common.

-front brakes are complete but need fluid. I never got around to checking them.

-tires are junk. totally NEED to be replaced before you can ride.

-seat is in rough shape, foam is good but cover is cracked.

All this stuff is usually for sale and easy to find on ebay. kicker,petcock,gas cap, carb.

-No title. but I could try to get you a Maryland Moped title, for $50.

---------------------------------------------------

Now the GOOD:

-I did get it running twice. so it has potential. its not seized or anything critical.

-Transmission seems to work. neutral is sometimes a challenge, but it goes into the gears. and is Euro Shift pattern. awesome! I never rode the bike so I don't know for sure how tight the shifting is. but hey you get a whole other engine.

-its complete. aside from some small things. with some work it will be a great fun bike. also you will get a whole extra engine! so if any internal component goes wrong you have replacements!

-this package is worth an insane amount of money in parts alone, Just the Enki wheels (which are also a rare color) are worth 300-400 NO I WILL NOT SELL YOU JUST THE WHEELS!!! I really want to see this bike...well...be a bike! not many of these made it to the US. I know its worth more in parts Separately. but I'd rather get less $$ and see it on the road.

----------------------------------------------

the bike is in Baltimore MD

I'm asking $600 OBO, if you have a trade I'd consider it. wouldn't hurt. but I think I'd rather have the $$, like I said I'm neck deep in winter projects.

any questions or anything just lemme know. Email will be faster >> Bigbluetotoro@hotmail.com <<

also to reiterate I WILL NOT SELL YOU JUST THE WHEELS.

great meeting you doodz, i couldn't be happier. 1 guy came over and checked it out when we stopped at a rest stop and instantly mentioned the DOD sticker and fell in love, made his wife get out of the car in 20deg weather to check it out ha. then two younger chicks at the gas station stopped me and commented on it.

its got natural mojo. very rare.
