    hi everyone,

    well i just dropped off a down payment on a TW. i'll pay the rest next month and be the proud owner of a 1994 tw200 with just over 3000 miles.



    i have a few things to do to it, like repair the front and right turn signals that the PO damaged dropping it. it'll also need a tune up, oil change and other maintenance items, but otherwise looks to be in good shape. i'm excited by it, though the colors will need a bit getting used to. rainbow bright!



    thanks for all the great information on here and what seems to be a friendly and helpful place.

    Joe, I imagine this has been a nice trip down memory lane for you. Glad Jon dredged up your original post?
    Well if No-Fall-Joe doesn't need turn signals who am I going to give those turn signals that HikerGlenn kindly sent me after he sold his TW?
