My wife and I finally decided that it's time to sell her starter bike. I'm not sure but what we are going to regret selling this but - at the moment we think it's time to do so.

The Honda CB-250 is not that easy to find, and this is a good example.

New tires and clutch at 7,500 miles.

Yes, it's been down. Remember, it was used as a trainer.

For the last two years, I've used it as my errand-bike around town. It goes great without flaw. Runs up to about 70mph, and gets around 65mpg. It weighs almost nothing, and is the definition of a great starter bike. Easily used by the "vertically challenged" folks, and people to whom riding is a new venture. Yet it's a fun getabout for an experienced rider.

Clean title, in my name, registered until 4/30/2014.

That would be a great candidate for an USD fork conversion and some clubman bars for a budget cafe' bike too. GLWS.

That'd be a painful fly-and-ride...
