it,s been a few years since I have been on this board having sold my wing 3 years ago,I have been driving an 05 yamaha vstar,but sold it last fall ,I just came across an 83 interstate with 54,000 kms on it about a mile from my house.the gentleman that owned it bought it brand new and it has been meticulously maintained,all maintenance has been very well documented and it is in unbelievable condition.unfortunately the gentleman that owns it has gone away for a vacation and it needs to be safety checked so it will be 2 weeks before i can bring it home

Oh, wow! That is one great looking 1100. What a find!

It's gotta be hard for the owner to sell it.

thanks for the welcome back,it is a beautiful bike in unbelievable shape,I wasn,t really looking for another wing at this time but I can,t resist buying it,it is in too good of shape,the owner is now 75 years old and can,t handle the weight of it anymore,I guess that is a good thing for me,I think his family has a large influence on him selling it,they don,t want him riding it anymore,The only issue with it is the belts have never been changed,but it comes with a brand new set,he just never had them installed,I have already booked an appointment to have them changed for the day I am bringing the bike home

What a beautiful bike!

Are the new belts new? Or several years old, never installed? If they're very old, and as reasonable as belts are, I'd go for brand new ones...the real cost is in the labor.

Congrats on a wonderful find!
