    81 gl 1100

    I just saw this ad and can't help think it may be a scam.I will be in the sellers area on the weekend and think I should have a look as I have wanted one of these for a while and if it's all there it's a good deal.
    What do you guys think?

    I'm going to look at it Saturday.For $300 it sounds too good but he says he is moving and it has to go.The ownership is not in his name though so he may be coming to the license office with me.I went through this with the TW and it took months to sort out.

    They were classic bikes. Wonder why he has things off of it? Watch for oil leaks.

    At $700 under trade-in, it's certainly worth a look...especially if it runs. My notary would at least need a photocopy of the original owner's license. Let us know how it turns out. I'm on my third wing. Have a 2013 now.

    Old Japanese touring bikes sell for pennies on the dollar of their original value. Throw in some title issues, and yeah, a few hundred bucks is it.

    Folks are stripping these and making big-engine naked bikes all the time.
    But even in great condition the DMV and paperwork hassle leads me away from deals like these nowadays.

    Well I bought it.The bike is in way better shape then I expected but it still needs work but for $250 I figure I won't loose much if any on it I guess time will tell.

    At that price if you can't get it titled you can probably part it out and make money. But make sure you contact the DMV and deal with that issue first. Would suck to put time and money into it only to find out you can't get a title. Or worse yet it's listed as stolen!
