Bandit 400




I picked this one up last October and pretty much went through the entire bike.It wasnt in sad shape, just not the way a bike I would ride would be.
The last 600 miles since the end of April on it has been an absolute blast!
Not that its that slow, I now understand the statement that its funner to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.............. 4 little pistons moving at 14k make for a pretty interesting morning ride.

Rock on! I love the small bikes and they are an absolute hoot to ride. That's a nice bike you have there. Love that red frame.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

I am restricted here at work..... so sorry for asking you guys to do my homework....

Kbb on a 92? If it needs a lot of work, it might just be worth passing on this one.
Can't see $750, then another 2K misc stuff.

Very cool, I was looking at one earlier this year, and had to pass on the price, but it looked like a great ride

For what its worth,I posted the bike on Craigslist a few weeks before I got the 919. Asking price was $2500.00. It sold almost immediatly. KBB and the other sights like it are probably a good guide for newer vehicles that may or not be in popular demand but for a bikes like these, their figures are pretty much worthless.
