86 GL for $200!!!!!

WOOO HOOO, is that a screaming deal, or what??? needs starter and tires... per the advertisement; but... IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE???? said it is all there, but partially disassembled to get the starter? don't have to do much to take the starter our, just hold your tongue right and finagle it out of the bike... right? I saw a U tube video on that, didn't look too hard. y/n? take starter to alternator shop to have it cleaned and new brushes put in it, good as any?


What SERIOUS things do I need to check on a SCREAMING DEAL like this? if it does not run, cannot check stator voltage, that would be bad and cannot KNOW it runs and runs right, but for $200 with title? trailer is waiting. input?

Go get it, if it's all there it's easily worth that.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Ensure VIN numbers match; clear title matches VIN numbers. Partially disassembled it could be hot. Better safe than sorry.

Just buy the thing and put it in your garage, or wherever. I will give you $300 for it and pick it up Saturday.
How's that for some quick profit?

Why ain't we ridin'?

Sounds like a good deal, you could always part it out and get all your money plus.
