    I'm thinking of buying this. Also a 1988. It's a cbr1000f hurricane. Thoughts? A mechanic friend of mine flips bikes and called me telling me it was made for me. 12k miles on it and he has the fairings for it.

    Look's fairly nice, if he has the fairings and doesn't want to much for it I'd say go for it.

    For that price I'd expect a full tank and him to put the fairings back on, other than that liter bikes make great cruisers.

    im having a tough time finding bikes around for less than 2k that aren't either 250s, or aren't beat to hell and back. the hurricane is a nice sport tourer that will still put a hurting on corvette or a gtr. you will not find a clean bike here with low miles for less than 4k it seems.

    Speaking from experience, this is an extremely fun, yet completely pointless and time wasting activity. But I just can't help myself.

    Started my fiberglass work today.

    Doing a lip spoiler, as well as making my own front and rear bumpers.

    What I think? Hotness, pure hotness. Though that exhaust tip looks a tad too fat for my liking, rectifiable or maybe just something silvias have from factory (not an expert).

    Very nice, I'm going to be importing a AE86 Trueno in July if the guys at our local shop who buy cars from japan from auction can get their hands on one for me, They have been working like nuts to find me one since I'm very persistent on a well maintained and undamaged version. It will either be the 86, a Chaser, or if I cannot find either of those I will be waiting till 2018 to import a 2003 Honda Integra Type R to replace my RSX. Since that is the proper version of my RSX. It is a really big process and takes a lot of time and it is very costly. Since a vehicle only has to be 15 years old in Canada we are getting access to a lot of cars we didn't before.

    Would totally be a epic upgrade, especially from the street cred and general style stand point. :rolleyes:
