Default Cafe racers

Any decent cafe racers out there that are actually for sale? Starting to look for one and seems like half the adds out there are old ones from year or 2 ago or longer.
Don't want a total resto project or basket case but also don't want to spend more than 65-70K.

I've been looking as well. Nothing worthwhile out there it seems and the market is slim right now. They come and go in waves (no pun intended).

It would be nice if some sites like powerboat listings would get rid of all the old adds from 1012

10th century boats are a hard sell, tend to sit a few centuries before finding new owners ..

When looking at Powerboat listing.com you HAVE to look at the date posted on the listing home page. But yea, it'd be nice to have adds delete after a certain time period (like 3 months, 6 months, etc). It does seem like some of thse ads have been on there since 1012 - Viking ships and what not.

There is one for sale locally here in Maryland that is listed on powerboat swap shop Facebook page. It is a 1989, has 454's with super chargers, bravo drives. Seller is asking $40k. I do not personally know anything about the boat but I have seen it a couple times at various local hangout spots and it looks very clean.

They are a little scarce, I considered myself lucky to find mine after more than a year of looking. With your budget you are in Top Gun territory unless 35 is as big as you want to go.
