Asking $1200 OBO, 1% to BARF.
I'm selling my 1997 Honda CBR 600 F3 project bike because I'm over it. I was pretty much finished with the project when I learned that the motor had problems.
This was a ratty ride that had been crashed previously and by all means should have had a salvage title, but the PO didn't file an insurance claim. Then I came along and wrecked it again and got carried away fixing it up.
Anyway, it does have a clean title, about 45,000 miles on the odometer, and registration is paid through the next whole year.

*It starts and idles perfectly, but makes scary noises and lacks power under load. In other words, I know something major is wrong inside, and I've run out of interest in this project to fix it. I've already double-checked valve clearances, cam timing, carburetors, hose routing, etc. It's not an easy fix and if I were to keep it, I'd pull the motor.
