    Not without a title, though he seems to think so... wrong speedo on it as well.

    Needs a front wheel, headlight assy, toolbox and aircleaners/side covers. Scrambler fork legs,tank, front fender. I suppose he can ask whatever he wants for it, good luck finding a buyer.

    Replaced screws on the left side and stripped out screw heads on the right looks like its been worked on some one time or another. Pods, no side covers and I could be wrong but looks like the right fork tube is bent back a little. $80.00 parts bike. A couple of days ago I helped a buddy load up 1968 yamaha? . Complete bike non running with a clear title. $80.00 . It was a 350 two stroke.

    Probably spooky to ride with that 16 inch front wheel and bent forks.

    I got a complete and titled 160 in much, much better shape for $700 a couple years ago. The fact that it runs is good, but $700 is about twice what he should be asking IMHO. But you never know...

    There's always a poor sucker who will have the bread to buy it.

    Last 160 I bought was $50, rough but complete except for some aftermarket scrambler style pipes and no chain guard. No title, but with a couple hours of tinkering it started right up, low compression on one hole but it ran. Sold the pipes later for $50.
