    potential trade?

    so i'm thinkin of tradin my '01 Honda RC-51 RVT1000R for this:

    Click for full size

    '90 c1500 lowered 5 in front 4 in back, rear axle flip will level it out better, rebuilt vortec 350 with rv cam, built th400HD. 4000 miles on engine and tranny. fully custom interior, lots of new body work all rust has been cut out and patched, welded in roll pan, relocated tailgate handle. actually looked at this a while back, drove it, runs very well and is stout. all the body work is pro quality. only thing it needs is a new front seal on the tranny.



    what y'all think.

    The vortec 350 was available in the mid 96 truck models to the 98's. Then they came out with the Vortec 5300 which was AWESOME!

    I always like the RC51s other than the paint color options but Im one who likes 1 color on a motorcycle. I never understood why cycle manufactures always had to have 2 or 3 colors on the crotchrockets.
    Anyway, I say if you really like the truck and its a straight up trade go for it but only after the seal is fixed unless you have no problem doing that. Im assuming your bike is paid off and you either have another bike or are done riding for a bit, otherwise keep the bike.
