    Just bought a police auction TW

    I recently purchased a TW at a Police Auction. ! am working to secure a title with the local Police Chief as the serial numbers have been ground of both the frame and the engine. The pipe has black plastic and a blue seat. Chrome wheels, 3200 miles.... I am trying to determine what year this bike may be. Any help would be greatly appreciate. I really want to start ordering parts for a rebuild.
    Thanks
    Randy

    A picture is worth a 1000 words . Does it have a kickstart, front disc or drum brake ???
    They used blue seats from early 90's off & on in the 2000's.
    Good luck : )))

    Nice, what did you pay? Google "tdubs by year" and you'll find a post here that should help. Welcome to the forum!

    I gave $225 for it. The only thing it really needs is an ignition.

    Nice score! Sounds like you will be riding (legally) in no time once the title is sorted out.

    Also the beauty of these bikes are most parts are unchanged regardless of the year so if it's body, mechanical or a partial or complete rebuild parts will be easy to come by.

    My 1999 has blue shock socks and had a blue seat. The 1996 had the same. I say just pick a year and go with it.
