i got the chance to hang out with a s2 and s3 and really fell in love with the s2.

i found this one online. after googling the vin i found it was owned by a BWB only a year ago? maybe its still him?

i love the color and the fact it seems very original.

Got it priced right now. Comes with Corbin too. Pegs arenít original. But other than that looks clean. Late style front brake rotor too.

Heh...yeah.

Looks like an interesting find - that one is a early one (1B9 VIN sequence) - and so is exactly 30 bikes later than the one you sat on. Also, if my eyes don't decieve me, that one also has those Billet factory trees - those are pretty rare.

For $2500...If I had room, I'd have another s2...

Funny I looked an hour before posting and didn't see it for sale.

I'm seriously thinking about it

If I didn't already have two, I'd be all over that. Love the colour. His pricing is different between Craigslist and Badweb.

Federated will cost you ~$700 dock to dock. Since your in the biz, I bet you can find a break down from that.

Very nice early one, looks to have the billet top clamp. If closer I'd buy it!

I feel you. I was in line as well. I offered to pay 500$ nonrefundable deposit via paypal and pick it up within 4 weeks. I guess he needed the money faster... At least it went to someone in the know" :-)

Sad thing is there is one just like it in CA but Id actually rather go drive across the country for one as that pays for part of the bike.

This one I found is the same color combo but has motor work done to it already so overall it might be a better deal
