Just writing here, no argument on my part.If all your riding is done on land flat as a pancake, I suppose a throttle lock would do.
Like your handle - have a soft spot for mopars. Regarding the poorboy install on the 84 1200, have an upper and lower bracket that I will not be using, made myself. Reason I'm not using these is I am onto rev 2 of the upper and lower bracket. Should work, can always modify. If you PM me your address, I will send.Well, I decided not to get the Interstate, instead I bought an 84 1200 Aspencade and an 89 1500. I got them as a package deal. The 1200 is real nice, had a poorboy alternator on it, but the bracket broke and now it has no alternator. The 1500 needs a battery and a lot of love on the plastics. It has Cruise and Reverse, no CB. I will clean them up a little and post pictures of them. I will have many questions I am sure. BTW I got both bikes for $500 + $100 in fuel to get them home from Spokane.
Maybe you all can help me decide what bike to keep.
To answer your Question, I would not hesitate to buy this. Maybe keep it for a year or two and trade it in for a newer wing if you want.I am looking at buying a 1500. However I seem to be short on the funds required to get that 98-2000 SE with all the bells and whistles.
I have run across a 91 Interstate in my area that seems to be in good shape for the money I can afford(without a loan).
I know that there will be no reverse, no air shocks, no CB and a few other little things. But, do I really need them?
I am 6 foot tall with LOOOONG legs and healthy so I might be able to get by without the reverse.
How does the Interstate do 2 up without the air shocks to adjust?
My thing is that I am selling another bike that I owe money on to get out of the payment. What I will be left with is some cash to get another bike. My 2 best options for what I am wanting are a 1988-2000 Gl1500 or a 2000-2004 BMW K1200lt. And before you knock the BMW, I had one for several years and they are a good bike.
However, at the price point I am looking at, sub $2000 I seem to be finding Interstates and nothing else.
To answer your Question, I would not hesitate to buy this. Maybe keep it for a year or two and trade it in for a newer wing if you want.
Just how ugly is it?? Again, pictures??
Two bikes for $500.00 sounds pretty good. Did you get titles?
