Called today about a 1988 1500 Wing. Original owner with only 17,000 miles!!. Has reverse, passenger armrest.Color is blue.Say's he drives it every year, but very little. Had it out this week.Just had the oil changed.I have't gone to see it yet. I hope it's not the blue I'm thinking of!! He's asking 5000. What do you think???

That's a reasonable price if the bike is in good shape. That's just my opinion, others might not agree.



There's only one blue for 1988. I don't know what they call the shade but it's in the medium blue range. About like this or slightly darker.

That would be well worth looking at John and sounds like a good price for a low miles machine. Dynastic Blue was the one for 1988, it's a mid-blue and much deeper than the very light blue on some models after 1990.

Color is a small thing if it's a good bike. Mine is Senior Gray but since she purrs like a kitten I love her anyway.

If you buy it change the belts right away Blue of that year is actually good to look at not like the pansy blue that came out later ( oop' s sorry) But we all know Red is fastest (right after BLACK!!!!)

If you're in the market for a wing it's always worth a look .Blue with a bit of chrome ?...you cant go wrong. Chances are if you dont like it you won't buy it even though it does sound like a good deal.

I would buy that bike for that price no matter what color. You could always paint it if you just can't stand the color. I almost bought a blue 1500 with 49,000 on it for $5,500. Still regret not getting it.

i was looking at some pictures of 1500s dashes before posting, those i found had 6 digit display, but you dont read the last number to the left, as it read as 99,999.9

Your local K-Mart should have enough rattle cans to change the color
As long as it was well kept during storage, I'd buy it if he'd knock $800 to a $1000 off.

My 91 does not read in tenths of a mile on the main odometer...just on the trip meter. Same with my 97 F 150 and my wife's 08 Explorer.....no tenths indicator on the main odometer. The tenths indicator is usually white in color as is the trip meter on my Wing.
