As the title says I was looking for a parts bike and ran across this '87 TW that matches the one I have. It came with the other kind of tires, an XT gas tank, a spare brand new CDI , an extra battery that turned out to be good, a big box of spare parts and a clean, up to date title. The electric start didn't work and it didn't charge the battery but it did run very well. I offered $400, the seller countered with $450, I accepted and we loaded it up.



I brought it home and using the spare parts I found in the box of extras got the starter to work and now it charges the battery. I barely touch the starter button and it burst into life. The gas tank is rusty and needs a cleaning. It also needs to be anchored on the back end. The three seals need replacing as it leaks oil from somewhere on that side. I cleaned the chain and found it to be an o-ring in pretty good shape, as is the rear sprocket. I can't tell about the front sprocket yet. The muffler is off a GXSR (?) and has a very nice non-TW sound to it. It is also non-forest service approved but I don't care. A friend looked at it and advised I would be crazy to use it for parts as it has the potential to be nicer than the one I already have.



So now I have two TW's, one for the dirt and one for the street. How sweet is that?

Very cool. I use my 2004 for the street and my 1987 in the dirt. I'm pretty sure I need a new cdi for the 1987 though. Will you be selling extra new cdi?

I know if I sell the CDI I will need it. Sorry, but I am keeping it.
