    [Sale Pending 1/8]



    I purchased the bike recently for $1450 (purchased 1/31/13). The previous owner owned the bike for 6 months. I don't know anything about the original owner or history of the bike. The previous owner replaced the head gasket and added new rear brakes (front are still great). All work was done at "Jim's Cycle," a shop in Santa Cruz.



    Engine has 13k miles on it, but these engines are notoriously reliable and, with love, will run strong for at least another 40k miles, if not more.



    I improved the bike:

    * Batterynew 2/2013, maintenance free, should last 3-5 years): AGM XTAZ7S at Battery Plus in Scotts Valley for $82

    * Full inspection and work listed below done at Cycle Revolution in Santa Cruz.

    * Carburetor thoroughly cleaned

    * Valves adjusted

    * Electrical/wiring fixed - low beam on headlight didn't work, front left turn signal did not work. All lights work perfectly now.

    - Repairs cost me $170.

    * Right mirror is missing. I ordered a new set of mirrors: 87-10 Yamaha Trailway TW200 TW 200 LH RH Mirrors Pair - $28 to be installed as soon as they arrive.

    * I have all receipts.



    Total cost for me:

    $1450 bike

    $280 repairs

    Total: $1,730



    I am not looking to make money off of this bike, I just want to break close to even. I was super excited to keep the bike, but I got a little tax return money at the same time that I found an great deal on a newer TW200, so that is why I am selling this bike.



    I've been riding the bike, and it runs excellent! The only thing that this bike needs is steering head bearings replacement. Right now, the steering feels stiff, it wants to bring you back to center instead of a smooth transition between turns. It's totally ride-able without the replacement, but if I was going to keep the bike, I would definitely do this. Also, there is a bit of rust on the handlebars, and a thin rip along the seam in the seat.



    If you are interested in aesthetics, I can point you to someone on the TWforum who will sell a set of black plastics for something around $120, not sure of the exact price. I have a great piece of gunsmoke gray vinyl that you can use to reupholster the seat. If you mostly want to ride on the street, you can take the knobbies off and put on a nice street tire (I recommend the TW204 &TW203 Bridgestone).



    Please PM if interested, or reply to the craigslist ad in Santa Cruz.



    EnJoy!

    -Cathy



    p.s., thanks to all the awesome folks on this forum who helped me out. I'll post pics of the new t-dub next week

    Okay BikeNerd - where in the mountains are you located? I'm on the Santa Clara Co side maybe 3 miles south east of the antenna on Summit Rd and less than a mile from the Santa Cruz Co line. How about you Cat, you a town woman or a country gal?



    Oh yeah BikeNerd - WELCOME!

    Hey Joe...thanks for the response. I HAVE been seriously thinking about the cow mountain ride. I heard there was some talk of certain people taking alternate routes for the less advanced riders. Is this true? I've been riding for over a year now...feel pretty confident. But would rather a leisurely ride than super strenuous. Also, is it just Tdub exclusive? I would love to bring my buddy who rides a kdx650...

    Thanks for your time!!

    Ride safe!
