    Wish me luck on scoring a second TW tomorrow. 1987, 1600 miles

    Came across a second bike to use for purely of road and custom project development is what I am thinking. Keep mine 16 for more of a 90/10, 90% road tour/ 10% mild trail ride. I this 1987 for just the opposite 10/90, sounds perfect. It can be my dual sprocket of road and street loan to a buddy bike. keep you fingers crossed for me and if it works out, details tomorrow night. Same old deal, title and registrations concerns to be figured out or not at the DMV in the morning before I can pull the trigger. I need it street legal.

    Good luck, and remember it is a 1987 - they are not worth as much as the newer years (sorry to hurt your feelings, LittleTommy ).

    That depends on how much you value a kickstart....

    I decided to pass on it and looking for an 2001 up for a second bike and the projects I have in mind. The rode tires were appealing to put on my 2016 and the spare set of wheels and tires seemed to make it a pretty fair deal. He has a Vermont registration and I did verify with my In. BMV that it was sufficient for me to get a title and register it back into Indiana. Seemed like a good fella but I just decided that there might be a time I would wish i had bought an 01 and up instead so I will keep watching.

    I guess kickstarters aren't of much value to you....if I could do it again I'd trade my brand new 2015 to save some money and get a kickstarter. But I do love my bike despite it's flaws.

    They are so easy to add if desired that it is not a significant consideration other than monetary value in the deal. In the end I just liked the nearly 100% interchangeability between the two if having two bikes was something I desired.

    Matching parts makes sense....but I can't say the kickstart mod is cheap or the parts easy to find. I've read both stickied threads on them and if they're not expensive/limited to a few dealers, then the fitting of various parts sounds questionable and unproven.

    I guess cheap is a relative for sure, fair enough on that but there is a guy on ebay who is selling 3 complete setups currently, mostly all new parts so I was just assuming they are readily available.
