    WTB in Colorado

    Hey guys, I'm searching for a used TW anywhere in Colorado. So far it's been a bit like looking for big foot. I've looked everywhere so posting this here is like my hail Mary. I don't want to buy new because this bike is going on the back of my RV and will be used mostly at campgrounds.

    Anybody that has one for sale or knows of one, please least me know.

    Thanks.

    The 88 Black Widows are one of the sharpest looking color schemes IMO. Why any one would paint the red frame black is beyond my comprehension. Sitting without a gas cap and in as poor looking condition as I can see I am very sure it is not running so the engine may or may not be any good. I would lean toward No Good judging from the rest of the bikes condition. As a parts bike, Sure! For around $400. Hard to tell what most of the rest of the parts look like but that bike was in a bunch of rodeos and one or two demolition derbies for sure.

    I have several ultra low milers "No Milers) under 100 miles and a few high milers around 400 miles lol in central AZ and I have a few things to pick up and deliver in Colorado Springs

    I have mostly 2003 and newer but do have a 99 mile 2000 and a 412 mile 1999 in exc shape

    I'm not the bargain basement I seek and buy ultra primos and they are never "cheap" when I find them

    good luck on the hunt

    Awesome. Pick which one you you want to keep the least, and I'll take it.

    Just my opinion but take the 99 or 2000 with the kicker and under 400 miles. Practically new and Placerloads bikes are premium. Pay a little extra to get a lot nicer.
