Hey wait guys... I'm legit.



It's a 1989 TW200 with 40 miles on it. I'm in northern Minnesota, Thief River Falls


How do I add a picture? It asks for a URL address.


Cool.
Good to hear its not spam or something.



You can upload the pic to a photobucket account (there are many other places to do so as well). Then copy the url and use it to link the pic in here.

I could do it for you if you email me the pic. (darnold79 at comcast dot net)

Awww, I saw Minnesota and got excited. I've been looking for a TW200 for a while, but you're on the opposite side of the state, 400 miles away. Ever make it down towards the cities? I'm in Mankato (below the cities)....

I guess it's worth whatever you can get for it. I paid $900.00 for a 1987 model with 5000 miles on the odometer. Still had original tires, and chain on it so those were items that needed replacement right away. Your 89 will need those things also along with a new battery, oil change, and possibly carb rebuild. My 87 was not as clean as your 89, but previous owner did repaint the frame and tank which I liked. TW's are not expensive to buy/keep/fix or ride. That is a good thing. Good luck selling.

Yeah, I've rebuilt the carb, it has a new battery, new air filter, chain is original but looked just fine. I did do a oil change and greased all of the bearings. The tires are original but look great, no weather checking. They even have the mold sprues (little hairs) from the tire mold. That's how new it is. All of the paint is in like new shape, still has paint on the bottom of the kick stand...ha.



Anyway, if anybody has any questions, I'll be glad to answer.



Thanks

Just as a comparison, I bought a 89 with 4,800 miles that had been garaged all of it's life and looks perfect. It also had the original tire that had no apparent weather checking. I changed those out because tires unfortunately have a shelf life, but they were still in pretty good shape. I paid $1300 for it. The only option that it came with was a Yamaha rack on the back.

For another comparison:



I bought my '89 (same paint scheme) from an old farmer who owned it all its life. It had 3400 miles on it. It was dirty, had sap all over it, slightly bent handlebars, broken turn signal, dent in tank, original rear tire that was horribly weather checked, etc, etc. But it started well and ran like a top. It cleaned up nicely and has treated me very well. I paid $750.
