I have a chance to bid on a 1987 Aspy that has front end damage low miles on it My question is will the running gear work on my 85 Aspy that is motor& tranny and is the wiring set up the same are there enough parts that I can swap to make it worth while.If the frame is not bent which years have the same front ends?Thanks in advance.

I believe the front end from the 85 will fit the 87. The fairing lowers are a bit different, the radiator air outlets are different but I think they will interchange. As far as I know the frame is basically the same, wiring pretty much similar too. I believe the main mechanical difference is the rear drive was improved on the 1987 though they remained interchangeable. Hang on a bit there should be others here who know the details.

I believe there are some differences in the engine internals too, but that shouldn't matter for your application.

I can't see you having a problem with this at all. Practically everything is swabbalble between the two years.
