whats a 1987 ninja 750R worth?

I don't know about with all the mods, but i bought an 87 750R with the red/white color scheme back in May that was basickly stock with a vance/hines full pipe, k&n air filter, and in REALLY clean condition for 800. Downside was it had a cracked clutch cover and missing chain cover and no chain. 200 bucks had most of it fixed. Not really sure what its worth, but ive been offered 1200 for it. Got a question about your signals though, I was thinking about putting flush mounts/chop the fender on mine and was wondering how yours was set up.
Great to see another 750R rider on here, bout time more of us show up!

you can kinda see where the turn signals are...the person who had the bike before did them... i think all he did was measure where he wanted them and then mounted them....... and then spliced the wires

Not sure what one is worth but I wouldn't sell mine cheap.
Airtech fairings. 4 into 1 supertrapp, K&N filters, Progressive forek springs (highly recomend for this bike)
I take some kidding from buddies with newer bikes but I will keep her till she will not move anymore probably.

Shweet paint scheme, where did you get the fork springs? I was thinking of rebuilding mine sometime this winter.

Got them from Dennis Kirk, I think they where around $73.00. They made a huge difference over the factory springs on handling.

Thanks, I'll order a pair in a few days. Also, Heres a tire alternative for these bikes if you don't like the Dunlop 205's that fit em. Its called the Pirelli demon sport. Comes in the original oem sizes, they have excellent grip, wet handling, etc. you can get them off the net or probably most tire shops too
