NOT SURE HOW TO DELETE THE AD.



SOLD LOCAL $ 1,200.00 VIA C.L.



NO LONGER HAVE THE BIKE. SOLD !



THANKS FOR THE AD.



I have owned the bike 3 years. The odometer stopped at 83,xxx miles and I have a repair receipt showing 80,xxx miles a few months before I got it.

The mileage should not be far off.

I have only riden the bike about 400 miles.



It was clean when I bought it and I cleaned it up even more. I do not think there is rust anywhere on the frame.

Original paint still has deep gloss.

Small area of paint blisted off front fender and a couple scratches.



Has a new battery installed.



Has original radio, intercom, and cb radio.

The radio was working a few months ago, and now no sound at all. The channel display and tuning works.


The seats are a much darker brown than what appears in the picture.


The bad part is I let the bike sit without starting it for about 12 - 16 months.

I have it running and took it around the block.



The left rear cylinder appears to not be firing and some oil blows out the exhaust on that side. The motor does smoke out the exhaust on the left side.



I do not know if it is a stuck or broken ring, or something else.

I would also recommend brake maintenance.

It is my opinion that this Wing is to nice to part out.

I am not a bike mechanic and do not have time to mess with it.



I hope I can get a picture up, will have some to send.

That is not a scratch on the tank.

I know that is not a good picture.

Asking $ 1,500



Located in Houston, Tx.

Never fails along comes a great deal and I'm too broke to pay attention...That is one super clean looking Wing...Good luck on selling it locally...I showed it to my wife, she took my credit card and hid my check book...Guess that's a good hint I ain't buying it...:?.....

Wow, you're right about being too nice to part out. If you were closer it would likely be in my garage. Seems like a fair price. Best wishes.

Another picture.

I will try to get some on photo bucket later and have a link.



The first picture shows the oil that blew out the exhaust onto the drive.

The oil spot at the center is where oil dripped out the muffle connection to the tail pipe.

And the oil under the motor, I think some I spilled when changing and possibly some from the shifter seal.



If I was not in the center of Houston, I might try riding it down a stretch of road and see if the smoking clears up.

I did take it around a couple of blocks the other day.

That is not a scratch on top of the tank.

The chrome aftermarket head covers and timing covers have some blistering of the chrome.

Picture of rear. I did replace the pin strip on the upper part of the trunk with gold stripes.



The chrome tail pipes have some flaking and surface rust spots.



Has working led light strips on rear bumper.



Nothing to be ashamed of. I used to have a blue 85 Aspencade, wish had kept it.

I still have a Honda Shadow 750 Ace.



My health and age has just about caught up with me.
