Santa brought me a new Goldwing for christmas. The only bad part about that is having to roll my 84 out of the garage to make room for the new bike. So I have decided to sell it. I posted it on craigslist and was bombarded with bogus SCAM offers to buy it site unseen. So I decided to list it here where the true gold wing lovers are located.

I am selling a 1984 Goldwing Interstate, in Bayville, New Jersey. The bike has 112K long distance miles on it. It runs excellent and rides excellent. It is wineberry red with beautiful landscape scenes painted on the fairing and saddlebags. The chrome is a bit faded and scrached. The only mechanical issue is starter fade when the engine is hot. Also, there is a crack in the trunk but it doesnt seem to leak. Im asking $1500, but will accept the best reasonable offer as I dont want it to sit out in the weather too long eventhough it is covered. I start it and ride it everyday to make sure it stays in shape. It runs excellent. I will try to attach some photos below. If interested, please email me with any questions. I will not respond to anyone looking to buy it site unseen and with cashiers checks.

Thanks Guys....Mike

Thankyou....I am just leary of the scam artists. Even Motorcycle Cruiser Magazine had an article about it this month. The checks clear your account, you ship the bike, and two weeks later the check bounces on the other side when it hits the buyers bike....then your bank comes after you for the money with penalties. Very risky. Besides...except for you Gold Wing Gurus who can fix anything...who would buy a bike without a test ride? So thats why its listed here...



Merry Christmas to all!!!!

Mickeyd1220, could you send a few more pics of the bike? My finacee's nephew has been thinking about a new bike and was intriqued by it. Pics of the other side, font end, rear and a close up of the dash setup would be nice.

I recently purchased a 1984 Interstate for $1,800. I definitely would not buy any vehicle site unseen. My wife and I traveled 5 hours one way just to check it out and give it a test drive. One does take the chance that the seller could sell it to someone else before you get there. You should'nt have any trouble selling it. Looks good for the money.

I just got my 82 site unseen and it turned out to be a very good bike with only on issue and the gentleman was very open and honest about it, He is one of very few that still believe your word is your bond i did the same for him with my truck i traded him I was lucky but like you said Wingers are usually very straight forward and honest but you do have a few bad apples
Your bike is a very sharp Wing I love the Paint job in it That alone looks to worth what you are asking for the bike

I bought my 85 1200 sight unseen although I did see many close up pic.s and talked a few times with PO over the phone. Did a bank transfer from my acct. , Flew to NM and drove the bike back solo. Took a few chances there but glad I did as I got a GREAT bike for a good price.:cool:

If I was selling on CraigList, I would go Cash, Not sight unseen, and Nothing else. Here, I would sell sight unseen. I will not lie about nothing. It isn't worth loosing your soul, plus your word is you reputation. Like Fleabay, I have 100% Positive for 4 years, buying and seling. Been selling more lately tha buying though!

Santa brought me a 1995, 20th Aniversary SE....White. Only has 4800 Miles on it. Sad story there....but suffice it to say...I got a practicaly brand new 95 that was lost in a time warp. As for craigs list and being honest...its the only way to go. I couldnt look at my self in the mirror if I sold someone a bike that was going to fall apart under them. My 84 has issues that I have already disclosed and will go over the entire bike with interested buyers part by part to ensure they will be happy with it and with me after the sale. I love this bike and would keep it if I had room...so I want it to go to someone who will love it as well. Buy the way...your 85 is beautiful!!! Lots of luck with it. I will sell remotly to someone on this forum...and a bank transfer is a good idea...will keep it in mind.



Thanks for your input....Mike
