Default New beater!!

     

Swung through my local pawn shop today found this sucker sittin for $400.00. They didnt know if it ran so i told em $200.00 not even knowing what it was lol. Found out it's a 73 GT80, cleaned the tank and carb and she runs like a champ. Now what to do with it?

Every thing is worth something to someone. I would say you got a steal but I am a bit of an old romantic.

If it's street legal with the prices of fuel .... use it to commute to work if it was me

Thanks

Sweet find. I am sure someone would pay a good price if it is in nice condition. Or keep it as a good little bike to have as a conversation piece.

My first bike looked exactly like that!!!!!! It was a great bike to start on, I paid 400$ for it and ran it for a long time, I was 8 or 9 when i got mine, that bike and i were through a lot together!!! Hope you have fun with yours, not real powerful, but fun to putt around on.
