OYou know you want it.
Tell ya what.
Give me $1000, and 10%goes to BARF.
1983 GS1100ES.
7500 original miles.
The good.
it appears to have never been crashed,
the footings,
alternator cover,
ignition cover,
and stock pipes are looking good.
The inside of the tank is nice and not rusty.
It's all there.
The bad.
It hasn't been registered,
according the previous owner,
since 1999.
If you want the numbers to check,
Pm me.
I'll check it next week if I get a chance.
I do have a signed title from the original owner.
I assume it is off the books.
There are some chewed
wires under the seat,
which is why I haven't tried to power it up or start it.
Then shock and fork shafts are rusty.
They'll need replacing.
I'm not going to blow smoke up anybody about how cherry this bike is.
What it is,
is an excellent
start to a project.
It's all there.
It's pretty unfucked with.
And it would make a fine restore bike.
I would rather not part this bike out.
I'm sure there is money there,
but is so complete,
so there,
that it would be a shame.
