I have a 1987 TW200 for sale. The bike is in great condition except that it needs a CDI. Due to health reasons I have been selling 9 of my 11 motorcycles. The TW is the standard blue/white, no dents, good compression and all covers in tact. No dings in gas tank, forks rims all in great shape. First $300.00 buys the bike, will send pictures if requested. Seat has a standard horizontal tear across it from weather rot. Bill of Sale will be provided with sale. If not sold will part it out in two weeks but its really to good of a bike to part out. Thanks for looking rod

Robbing the kick starter alone would almost justify the price of the bike. I'm sure you will sell it at that price unless San Angelo is just too far away for most folks.

Yes, I agree. I just hate to tear it apart as it is a great running bike and in great shape. I know that I can make alot more money parting it out but money is not

that important to me. Would rather hear or see it running again for some person who would enjoy it. I feel that way about most of my bikes, Guzzies, Nortons,

Royal Enfield etc. Thanks for looking. West Texas is a long ways away from most people. semper fi rod

Put it up on here. > www.twtex.com

It'll sell. And almost all the members are from Texas. So someone is close to you. I'd buy it if it didn't take another $400 in fuel to go get it. I'm all the way east on I-10. (Beaumont)

Damn, Beaumont from San Angelo on a 23 year old tw - now that sounds like an adventure. Picking the right roads it would not only be doable, but worth making a movie about. Owtcast, I think you should reconsider. Tom

Hmm, I'd buy this bike from you tomorrow morning if you lived close. A shame...anyway with some more info and some contemplation I may be prepared to offer you $100 plus shipping for the complete engine, or possibly like $40 for the complete top end. I was going to part out my broken down 07 TW200 but I'm seriously considering fixing it (new cylinder head and valves, etc.) or dropping a whole "new" engine into the frame. Because everything else on the bike is in great shape and man how I miss riding that bike! And now having two other bikes I wouldn't feel "guilty" about gearing it really low like I used to have it. I say guilty because the super low gearing, while it makes the bike exponentially more fun off road, isn't good for reliability when the bike is used on the highway a lot. But now I could just use it around town and off road, instead of as a highway commuter/adventure bike like it used to be to me. Anyway I'm sort of rambling now. I tend to do this an awful lot. Anyway so yea if you do decide to part it out, or you want to ship it to California for free (joke...), let me know.

Yes, I agree with ya'll on parting the bike out would probably bring in more $$ than selling it whole but after so many years of running all my motorcycles

I have never parted any of them out. Over the past year have sold six of my bikes with only five left. All of my motorcyles are road bikes except for the

TW which I just road around the ranch and down around the river. Prior to the CDI going TU really was my most fun bike to ride. Luckily never have

dropped it but close many times. All my other bikes are old harleys, Nortons, Motto G's and Royal Enfield w/side hack (still have one Norton and RE) to

sell. Plan is to go down to just two mikes, the dresser and softail. If I was in good health and could keep all the bikes a running, I would not think twice

about forking out the $300 for a new CDI. I have not researched this all that much so do not know if there are alternatives out there on after-market CDI's

where one can get them cheaper or not. Anyway thanks to all for looking. I could post picts but it looks exactly like all the other blue/white 87 TW's

out there. Enjoy the holidays approaching. semper fi rod
