Low miles = My friends all got boats right after I bought it.
Runs = just barely
Sorted = I've been in the engine 3 times and it's time for someone else to fool with it.
New gaskets = I started tearing it apart and got scared so I put it back together
Mint = It's used as a coat rack. My kids used to be proud of my $60,000 chopper but are tired of eating ramen noodles.
My biggest, BY FAR, is "invested." As in, "Lots of chrome. Over $30,000 invested."
An investment implies a return. What I really wish they would say is:
"I spent $12,000 on stuff that does absolutely nothing to improve the durability, rideability or performance of this motorcyle. But man, it's shiny! Now, I want to start over again doing it to a new one, and I'd like to get at least some of my money back because my wife is pretty pissed about it already."
recent rebuild: If ya just spent the money to rebuild it whats broken now that you wanna sell it to me? And just how many miles years ago was recent.
New tires,Brakes etc: Why would you put money into something ur gonna sell? Tires worn out from underinflation and poor care,or it just shredded at the last burnout contest?
