    Oh, well good luck! The second one is used but still $2999 - I imagine you're looking more for a $1500 one. Good hunting.

    When they do come up, you have to move fast. The reasonably priced ones go fast. ( even in the dead of winter ) Being part of this community has given me the confidence to buy and resurrect machines that I would not have given a second thought about before I joined. ( and learned )

    They really do go fast. It took me 5 years any many missed chances bros I finally found a good used one. At this point I might even consider shipping if one pops up else where. I'm not very mechanical when it comes to bikes but I plan on practicing on the tw.

    I just snatched one a couple weeks ago from right under your nose down in Red Lion PA. It was listed as a 1994 but it is a 1988 model. Like Bucknutz said, we are pals for many years and love working on these nice bikes and learning from this forum. I am not sure what I will do with this '88 once I get it running. It is a great candidate for a total make over as long as the engine is as the seller stated. Wish this below zero crap would get over itself so I can get out in the garage and fiddle with it to hear the engine run.

    Good luck with your search and be ready to roll and pull the trigger with cash in hand when you see them pop up on CL. There is a 1995 just up the road from me but the guy wants stupid $$ for it and it needs a lot of work to get it right. He started at $2300 and went down to $1500 but I would be a buyer at around $600. It needs tires, chain, sprockets, handle bars, seat pad and a bunch of other stuff and would only be worth around $1500 when it is done.

    I think I talked to him. He was trying to trade it with another bike right? That's funny I emailed him back to make a deal and it was gone. We did make a deal in the one in milton that's on cl so now we just need one more. How's the riding in cape May?

    I tried buying that one in Milton and the AH never called me back after leaving five messages. That bike was on CL a long time considering the miles and price but his statement on getting a NJ title probably scared a lot of buyers off. Hope that works out for you.
