I saw a pacific coast 800 on ebay. I know I saw them when they were being sold, but I know nothing about them. One of you guru doods will be able to describe them for me. Just a curiosity.

800cc V twin, shaft final drive and I believe liquid cooled. The entire rear pan lifts up to expose storage compartment. Quiet, not too quick, and reliable. The fellow I follow at work has one but I haven't looked at it for a while. Give me a day and I'll get back to you. I believe this was Honda's idea of a commuter bike to lure in prospective Goldwing buyers. I've only seen two on the road since they came out. I don't even remember when they were discontinued.... :gunhead:

I'm selling one right now on Ebay. Great bike. 800cc V-twin. Liquid cooled. Quiet, smooth, and comfortable cruise well above the legal limit. Light, low seat height. Feels like a 500cc bike and leans over readily. Excellent wind and weather protection. Typical Honda fit and finsih.

Flip up 'trunk' easily accomodate two full face helmets with room to spare. they were made from 89 - 93 and then brought back due to dealer requests from 95 - 98. Much better bike for the money than the current crop of big displacement "scooters".

I found I really had to watch myself as I repeatedly caught myself going 85 - 90 mph if i wasn't paying attention. Mark in MN
