MY PERSONAL MOTOCROSS STORY:
I’M A HUGE FAN OF MOTOCROSS!  WHEN I WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD MY FATHER BOUGHT ME A 1982 SUZUKI JR50 AND HE BOUGHT A 1983 SUZUKI SP100 FOR HIMSELF.  WE RODE TOGETHER AND WITH FRIENDS FOR MANY YEARS. DURING THE YEARS WE UPGRADED WITH DIFFERENT MAKES AND MODELS OF DIRT BIKES.  WE ALL BECAME VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT RIDING.  WE WANTED TO RACE COMPETITIVELY SO WE JOINED (NESC) THE NEW ENGLAND SPORTS COMMITTEE.  WE HAD SO MANY GOOD TIMES TRAVELING ACROSS NEW ENGLAND TO ALL THE RACE TRACKS.  WHEN I WAS IN MY MID TEENAGE YEARS I GOT BUSY WITH WORK AND DECIDED TO STOP RIDING.  RIDING MOTOCROSS WITH MY FATHER AND FRIENDS WAS SOME OF THE BEST MEMORIES OF MY LIFE.  IT WAS MY LIFE FOR ALONG TIME.  IT’S STILL IN MY BLOOD.  I ACTIVELY WATCH SUPERCROSS ON T.V. AND ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS STILL RACES IN THE VET EXPERT CLASS WITH NESC.
WOULD YOU BELIEVE ME IF I TOLD YOU I STILL HAVE MY 1982 SUZUKI JR50?  WELL, I DO.  I’VE MANAGED TO KEEP MY FIRST DIRT BIKE ALL THESE YEARS THROUGH MY LIFE.  IT’S 100% ORIGINAL WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE FRONT PLATE.  JUST FOR FUN I’VE ADDED A PHOTO OF IT IN THE PHOTOS OF THIS DIRT BIKE BELOW.

AS YOU’D IMAGINE WITH MY PASSION FOR CLASSIC VEHICLES I’D BE EQUALLY AS PASSIONATE ABOUT VINTAGE DIRT BIKES.  I’VE STARTED A SMALL COLLECTION OF VINTAGE DIRT BIKES THAT I DIDN’T PLAN ON SELLING.  OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO LIST A FEW OF THEM FOR SALE TO PROMOTE THE VINTAGE MOTOCROSS HOBBY.  I’M NOT A VINTAGE MOTOCROSS EXPERT AND DON’T WANT TO PRETEND TO BE ONE.  IF YOU’RE A DISCRIMINATING BUYER YOU’LL KNOW WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT.  WHEN I SEARCH FOR VINTAGE DIRT BIKES I’M LOOKING FOR CERTAIN MODELS THAT APPEAL TO ME PERSONALLY.  I’M NOT LOOKING FOR PERFECTION BUT HIGHER QUALITY RESTORATIONS.  I’M ALSO NOT AS CONCERNED WITH WHAT’S EXACTLY CORRECT AND WHAT’S NOT.  TO ME THERE DISPLAY PIECES THAT ARE RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE INVESTMENTS ESPECIALLY WHEN COMPARED TO CLASSIC VEHICLES.
 
DESCRIPTION:
I PURCHASED THIS 1978 SUZUKI RM125C ALONG WITH FIVE OTHER VINTAGE MOTOCROSS BIKES FROM THE WELL-KNOWN “GREG PRIMM MX COLLECTION”.  THE COLLECTION WAS ON DISPLAY IN A MUSEUM LOCATED IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA.  THE MUSEUM WAS OPEN FOR ROUGHLY FIVE YEARS BEFORE CLOSING IN 2010.  I ADDED A FEW PHOTOS OF HIS MUSEUM WITH COLLECTION IN THE PHOTOS BELOW.  OVER 275 OF HIS VINTAGE MOTOCROSS BIKES WERE PURCHASED BY TOM REESE AND HIS FAMILY.  THEY HAVE THE BIKES DISPLAYED IN THERE MUSEUM WHICH IS CALLED “THE MOTO ARMORY”.  THERE COLLECTION CONSISTS OF OVER 600 VINTAGE DIRT BIKES. THIS IS THE LARGEST COLLECTION IN THE WORLD. 

I STUMBLED UPON ONE OF THE SIX VINTAGE MOTOCROSS BIKES THAT I FOUND LISTED FOR SALE. THE GENTLEMAN WHO HAD LISTED THE BIKE WAS A PERSONAL FRIEND OF GREG PRIMM.  HE TOLD ME THESE SIX BIKES WERE SOME OF HIS FAVORITES AND THE LAST OF HIS COLLECTION.  HE HAD THEM STORAGE IN A STORAGE CONTAINER IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA.  WHEN I GOT THIS INFORMATION I TOLD HIM I WANTED TO BUY ALL SIX AS A PACKAGE.  WE AGREED TO A PACKAGE PRICE AND I PURCHASED THEM.  I HAD THEM ALL SHIPPED ENCLOSED AND KEPT THEM IN STORAGE FOR AWHILE.  I SOLD ONE OF THEM AND DECIDED TO KEEP ANOTHER.  THIS IS ONE OF THE REMAINING BIKES. 

FROM THE INFORMATION I’VE GATHERED THESE BIKES WERE COMPLETELY RESTORED.  THEY WEREN’T 100% CORRECT AND CONCOURS RESTORATIONS BUT THEY WERE HIGH QUALITY RESTORATIONS.  THEY WERE EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.  MY GUESS IS THEY WERE RESTORED SOMEWHERE IN THE EARLY TO MID 2000’S.  SINCE THE RESTORATIONS WERE COMPLETED THEY’VE NEVER HAD FUEL RUN THROUGH THEM.  THEY WERE STRICTLY USED AS DISPLAY PIECES AND GREG PRIMM DIDN’T WANT TO DEAL WITH OLD GAS ISSUES.  THIS IS HOW I’M ADVERTISING THESE BIKES.  IF A BUYER AND I HAVE AGREED TO THE PRICE AND IS 100% COMMITTED CONTINGENT ON THE BIKE RUNNING MS CLASSIC CARS WILL COMPLETELY SERVICE THE BIKE.  WE WILL THEN DO A VIDEO OF IT RUNNING.  IF THE BUYER HAS NO PLANS OF USING THE BIKE WE’D RECOMMEND LEAVING THEM EXACTLY HOW THEY ARE SO THERE NO ISSUES WITH OLD GAS, GASKETS OR SEALS.

THIS 1978 SUZUKI RM125C IS A BEAUTIFUL DIRT BIKE.  THIS WAS THE THIRD MODEL YEAR FOR THE RM125 MODEL.  BASED ON THE “VINTAGE ROOST” SUZUKI IDENTIFICATION LIST THE FRAME NUMBER AND ENGINE NUMBER MATCH.
 
YOUR CHALLENGE
WHEN IT COMES TO CLASSIC VEHICLES I’M VERY EXPERIENCED AS MY WEBSITE INDICATES.  I ALWAYS PRICE MY VEHICLES COMPETITIVE BASED ON CURRENT MARKET VALUES.  IN MY DESCRIPTIONS I ALWAYS CHALLENGE ANYONE TO FIND A COMPARABLE VEHICLE FOR LESS.  I ASK TO MAKE SURE THERE COMPARING THE VEHICLES HISTORY, RECENT DOCUMENTED SERVICE WORK, ALL OPTIONS AND THE ENTIRE VEHICLES OVERALL CONDITION FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.  I VERY RARELY GET CHALLENGED WITH MY LISTINGS.
WHEN IT COMES TO ANYTHING BUT CLASSIC VEHICLES I’M NOT AS EXPERIENCED.  HOWEVER, I DO A LOT OF RESEARCH PRIOR TO LISTING THE ITEM FOR SALE.  I TRULY FEEL LIKE IT’S PRICED COMPETITIVELY BASED ON THE CURRENT MARKET VALUES.  IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THIS 1978 SUZUKI RM125C IS AN APPLE TO APPLE COMPARISON WITH ANOTHER 1978 SUZUKI RM125C.  IF YOU’RE TRULY INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THIS 1978 SUZUKI RM 125C AND YOU’VE FOUND A 1978 SUZUKI RM125C THAT’S PRICED LESS PLEASE CALL ME TO DISCUSS IT FURTHER. IF I FEEL LIKE THE OTHER 1978 SUZUKI RM125C IS A BETTER CHOICE FOR YOU I’LL POINT YOU IN THAT DIRECTION.  THANK YOU.

Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
