One owner clean title in hand ....My dad paid 12,000 for the bike in 1993.. 727 510050three

The list says "white".  The pics are of a red bike.

Right. Covered all that with Guzzi. Redundancy is a huge literacy problem. :D

I wonder if white is a default setting if you don't select something else when you're creating an ad on CL.

With the phone number that's left and the way the ad was written, I believe it to be legit.

There were a couple of guys on STN back in the day who regularly rode GTS 1000s. They are interesting and unique bikes.

The one in the add is way overpriced based on how it looks in the pictures if you ask me. Looks like some body parts are missing and I can't imagine parts are easy to find.

Those were my thoughts. Probably have to buy a couple of bikes to make one good one.

Those are the guys. 🙂

Yes. It was one of Rick's. Still have it as a sacrifice to the gods of speed. Dealer stopped at $18,000 to repair....

Yeah, I think so too.  And, I guess it's old news, but I finally went and took a look. Missing seat. Missing screen and something's broken there. Something looks wonky with the rear fender, and with some scrapes on the front right, I'm guessing it was leaning against the wall fore a while.

Cool project for someone in a higher tax bracket than me.
