Unhappy NO BUYERS, so I guess we start working on Cherri-leigh again!

Well, over the winter finances got hard so I put the Mistress, Cherri-leigh, up to the reasonable bidder. My Cherri-leigh still sits here by my side, sick as hell, just waiting on me to get her road-worthy again. Haven't fully decided on the plan yet. I have her stripped naked, just waiting on the funding.
The dilema: Cherri-leigh is running a poorboy, and in addition to that, the flange bolts for the starter were snapped by the p/o. The clutch needs work. The carbs need done. and the battery isn't holding the charge.

I'm kinda leaning on just getting a rebuilt engine. If I finish stripping her to the frame I'll cut a little more cost out. I could also get a Standard set up and forgo the bags and trunk, but I would really like the full dress.

What say you guys/gals?

Where can you find a "rebuilt engine" ? It is possible to find low milage bike parted out on fleabay.

Pop, this is a tough one. You have to decide what to do with the bike. For me it all about what you want in the end. There is no such thing as a cheap Goldwing. You can rebuild your bike and easily get up to $2000 or more, or you can sell it cheap and get another problem child for that much money. Rebuilding takes time money and effort. The skills will come if you are dedicated. Make a decision, get started, post your progress and we will help as much as possible.

It's still a 1200 no matter how much money you put into it. Not a big demand for the 1200 Wing. Unless you plan on keeping it for a long time to get your money out of it you might try selling it for parts if there are good body parts and wheels on it. You can get a nice 1500 wing for about 4 -$4500. I just passed on a 2000 SE with 34000 miles on it and a bunch of extras for $4000

This is my first bike. Got it for my 40th birthday. I may just part it out. I'm going window shopping today for a little. 2 years and my kids are grown, I want to be out riding.

Pop, not sure why you are thinking of a rebuilt engine. You can rebuild your carbs and I imagine you can find a starter on Ebay or somewhere. Seems strange that you have the PB alternator and still have charging issues, but it could be a bad battery or a half-dozen other things. The issues you describe sound like things that members of this forum could sort out with you.
The bike is worth more to you right now than it would be to any potential buyer. Parting it out sounds to me like more work than restoring it. I say take it one step at a time and get that 1200 back on the road!
