Welcome to the forum James, If you spend some time on Craigslist, in the tennessee, georgia, alabama area I see wings going for that all the time, you may have to spend a day driving to get it, but that's half of the fun. Anyway, I will do some looking on my own and see if I can help you out. Happy Hunting.:action:

Getting a bike from Digger to you is no sweat. I had a bike shipped from CA to Chicago a few weeks ago for a song.

The couple that delivereditwere real good people. Husband and wife team, and all they do is drive their pickup andenclosed trailer across the US and deliver bikes--and they did it quick too. Shoot me a PM and I'll give you their number so you can ask them directly for their price.

It runs great... I am in the process of making it a partial nekkid since it was in an accident.. Replaced the front forks and rim/tire.. Was hit in the front and destroyed the fairing.. And I liked the look of Ty's bike with just the side saddle bags on it..

I will get pix this weekend and email them to you... PM me your email address.

If you found a 85 1200 for $1500 you better grab it. Anyone looking for a bike will take it.

Here is the link for it maybe I shouldnt post it but as I am a little unsure about this bike some other member might snatch it up and not let it sit at least. Acording to George the salesman the bike is clean and runs very very good and everything works that he can test, he doesnt have a tape to test the cassette deck however lol. If nothing else I may just bite the bullet on this ride its just a few hours ride down there for me. My only real concern is the stator issue I know with these bikes its not an if but a when.

Just talked with the salesman and someone did place a credit card deposit on the bike, so I guess things work out for a reason back to the search!!!
