    Arco

    I've got this thing listed on CL for $275 OBO, $175 for the Roller. However there is some haggle room in there. Here is the full Rundown on the bike:

    The GOOD
    1) Fresh paint, green on the frame and silver shocks and forks. Original steel rims painted black.
    2) Brand new rear slick and front street tires
    3) Fresh seat with racing stripe on the rear. Adds 3HP (NOT )
    4) Custom handle bars
    5) 5HP Briggs & Stratton Engine. Very fresh engine. Strongest 5hp Briggs that I've owned.
    6) Foot brake works perfect and has new chrome spring
    7) Fresh hardware and bearings all over

    Bad:
    1) Paint is not a show bike paint job. The frame and wheels had some pitting that was painted over. Nothing structural and everything was painted over proper, its just not Show bike perfect. It is however awesome for a runner.
    2) Engine plate has an odd ball offset, about 1/2" off from most bikes. I addes a spacer on the engine output shaft to align the chain and it works fine, but the perfect way to fix it would be to buy a PMR motor plate that allows side to side adjustment of the motor position, eliminating the need for spacer. Here is a link to the part: Mini Bike Motor Mount
    3) The front springer forks are stuck, as in the springs do not compress. It looks like the person that painted the bike got too much in the fork area and it dripped into the forks and glued them stuck. If you are up for repainting the forks, I'm sure they could be broken free by use of force and or heat. They are arrow straight and the bike steers fine with them stuck. It just doesn't really have front suspension at the moment. The rear shocks do move and help save your butt on the bumps.
    4) While it has the original kickstand, I believe, it does not function properly. It should be an easy repair.






    I may be able to help with packaging and shipping, preferably without the motor. Make me an offer.

    Also, I have this seat that I'm willing to toss in for an extra $50. It should bolt right up to this frame and would look awesome if you went with a color scheme that matches silver and purple. Its brand new NOS and original to ARCO's if I'm not mistaken.
