    I bought a TW

    Found a 92' locally, 3,300 miles, used but not abused, stored inside so things like the speedo cluster are in excellent condition. Typical weird color combo with red seat, blue tank, black frame and tinted blue/white fenders and plastics, with big red/hot pink "ELECTRIC" stickers on the side cowlings.
    It needs a chain and sprockets, as I'm sure they are original. But it runs great.
    This is my 5th TW in 25 years

    I was a fickle bike owner. I Had cash, youth and health, and lots of bikes.

    Now, limited income, a worn out, aging but healthy body, and time to ride leisurely, and locally.
