If you can get away with leaving then together then just buy the OEM Honda parts.

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

Were you using a hosting service, like photobucket? If so they won't stay. You can go to the gallery at the top and put your photos there.

It would be MUCH safer for you to upload your pictures to your own personal Album in the Gallery


You can create Album Folders and store up to 80 pictures per album.


that way, they will stay on this forum's server and never get lost.

Paid $1300 for my 81. Had it for right about ten years. The last three it didn't run. I invested somewhere around $8000 in keeping it running. I got $75 for it when I got rid of it. I went through four complete parts bikes and god only knows how many other outsourced parts. It had Dodge parts, Ford parts, Nissan parts even a couple Yamaha and Harley parts on it. There were one of a kind custom fabricated parts, a hand sewn leather seat and a custom paint job.

It was just shy of 63K when I bought it. Was just over 189K when I tried racing a Triumph ST. I short shifted out of first gear wound up in neutral. Ran it right up to about 12k rpm for about two seconds. Was enough to blow a couple valve seals and spin at least one bearing. Brought it home and put it away for a few months. When I got around to tinkering with it I found the motor seized. It sat a little over two more years and I scrapped to a local bike salvage.

I put WAY to much money into that bike. But I loved it. Now, I haven't ridden in almost five years. Part of me wishes I'd spent a few hundred bucks and put another motor in it. But mostly I'm glad it's gone at this point.

Just bought a 79 naked Wing, 31K miles, $1200.
Ran, but a bit rough.
4 new iridium plugs and a number of heat cycles with Seafoamed fuel, the one leaking carb doesnt anymore. No tag quite yet, but am making full throttle 1st gear passes in my business park.


Had a new rear tire, needed a new front since it was shot and had a date code of February 1979...
Had to grease the caliper pins on the front brakes, flush all the hydraulics, recover the seat.


Gems are out there!

Unless it's internal engine parts I have never had any problem finding parts.

why is it you miss what you had after you send it down the road?
250. is a great deal!! Took me almost two yrs to get mine to live the first time. went down again over the last few yrs but as of yesterday lives again!! Have had no problems with parts or willing people to help me. It has taught me patience, persistance, and led me to some of the best people!

They are all perfect
