whats up! terry hutchens here in jonesville nc.going to look at a 85 goldwing ltd. the ad says new tires and brakes 250 miles ago, 42,000 miles,with very fast 1200cc engine,needs minor repairs and detailing,$1950. called the man he said the motor and transmission ran out fine. mostly what it needed was cosmetics, as far as he knew everything on the bike worked. btw he is selling the bike for someone else. according to kbb this is cheap. too good to be true? also he is willing to haggle on the price. he also said the battery is weak from sitting. so any info you can give is welcomed. i've been wanting a wing for a long time i just don't want to get burned on my first one. thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum. I hate to say whether this would be a good deal or not. Some of the others on here may know better than me. All I can say is look it over good before buying. Older wings do list good in KBB but they never sell for that price. I have an 82 GL1100 Aspencade that lists for over $3000 and I couldn't get it sold for $2000. Keep in mind that most all older bikes will need some work. The question is are you willing to commit to it and put a little money into it. Good luck with your possible purchase. If you decide to take it, try and convince him to put a new battery in it first. If he says he's selling it for someone else, thats fine. He can call them because I can assure you he will call them the minute it is sold. Don't let them railroad you by saying, "I don't know. I'm selling it for someone else." Make them call the owner and get answers.

he's asking too much. keep looking..... oh, and i don't trust guys who are selling cars/bikes for 'friends'. that's generally a copout so that they can pretend to NOT know what's wrong with the machine.
