I need to thin out my bike collection and this is the next one to go. It is at my home in Red Lodge, Montana, but I will be driving my pickup truck to OC on about Dec 31 to Jan 8 and can bring it down if I have a buyer. I am picking up another bike I bought in OC.
This is a very rare, low mileage original bike. Less than 4800 miles. Overall condition is very, very good with a few issues. The tank is in great shape, but does have a couple very light scratches in the blue area. The lower fairing has been painted, and the lines don't match the upper (original) fairing exactly. The tail piece is from a 86 model and doesn't match exactly. I also will include an original '85 tail piece which needs some repair. Other than these items, the bike is probably a 9.5 out of 10 in condition. It looks great!
The clutch needs to be bled. The last time I rode it, the clutch started to not release after a few miles. Its a hydraulic clutch and just needs to be bled.
The bike has $1500 of recent receipts, including new tires.
It runs and sounds excellent, like new. VERY low, original miles!
I'm looking to get what I bought it for 4 years ago, which is $4900. I've put about 20 miles on it since then, but have started it regularly and kept it on a battery tender always. Buyer will need to pay for the bike before I will load it up and bring it down to SoCal.
Has current Montana title and registration.
Please let me know if you need additional info or photos. Thanks.
