    Thought I'd start this thread when I saw this bike. It's a REAL POS(Piece of Suffering).

    This bike reminds me of a '93 I stripped years ago that some trash haulers had gotten a hold of. Similar condition, even the fire history.lol
    Looks like someone tried valiantly to hammer and chisel the top valve cap off. You can even see the seal, among other things. Some people just don't care. I do see some usable parts though, maybe even the forks. This is a good resto/mod or Mad Max candidate,IMO.

    Please post pics, so the post/thread doesn't eventually become useless.

    I laughed when I saw the ad. I even called my wife in to look at it.

    Go ahead and cash them all in because you won't need one for a muffler if you do...Looks like it has one already.

    Are you buying it CJ? Seems like a decent price, maybe he'd come down 50 or hundred.

    These bikes are pretty bad. There is actually some good parts here. I see a couple frames that have potential and a set of K1-later forks.

    I would pay a $100bill for it, but the exposed flywheel makes me cringe the most. My HK1 is tapping me of moolah right now too. I wonder if that beercan exhaust burns your knee.lol

    I did come across a guy that has a bunch of K0 parts around the area where I work. Haven't checked on it yet.

    I almost listed this bike under "He has to be kidding", but thought it fit better here. "DOES NOT RUN". After looking at the pics, "No $h!tt Sherlock!!!". Just my opinion but......I might consider going to get this for $50 AND if the front forks weren't bent all to hell. There has got to be a lot of rust. I do see a few parts though.

    looks like it has decent fork tins, a not majorly damaged frame, and maybe a couple other usable parts. a $50 piece for sure… more than that is just a gamble. looks like it was stored on the beach.

    I wonder why it isn't running? Maybe it just needs a good carb cleaning???

    FYI from a seller perspective, i once listed an old steel cr500 frame/ suspension/wheels as a 'rolling chassis' and included a picture of it with no engine installed. you'd never believe the number of calls and texts i got saying 'does it run'… Really? i thought we knew what a rolling chassis was in the used motorcycle buyer's market…. guess not. he probably just said it to keep ignorant buyers out of his hair.

    Here's a wrecked K0. Started to laugh, but then realized someone may have gotten hurt pretty badly. Looks like it happened a long, long time ago. From the looks of it, I think the motor mounts are bent upwards. I see a few good parts.

    That has all the signs of someone jumping the bike motocross style. The forks are bent forward and rear shock is snapped. Looks like the fly wheel is still good though. lol

    I'd say both rear shocks are snapped. That flywheel looks to be an H.
