That's probably average for a good, clean one.
Last summer I sold a CHERRY 89 with 42K on it for $ 3600.

My buddy sold his spotless, 21,000 mi. 96 with new tires this week for $3900. Not bad for the middle of summer.

Anyone have a speedometer/odometer dash unit they don't need ?



The tapered gear in the unit is worn down on mine.
I don't really care much about how fast I am going,
although that would be helpful,
but the mileage is helpful on trips to know how much gas I have really used.

And can you really scrape the pegs on this bike?
I am probably too chicken to try it.

Vermim might part with Cacks dash unit? If he can find it?I think some guys are using bicycle wireless speedos as a backup? I have a wireless on my mt. bike and don't know why it wouldn't work on a motorcycle? They can be calibrated for different sized wheels. Go to the Yahoo Pacific Coast page and ask them.

There are several guys who are running car tires on the rear of their PCs now. On the IPCRC people call it going to the "Dark Side." Seems to work well for the people who use those tires but as always, YMMV.

Also in regards to the tweet: embrace the tweet. Love the tweet. Become one with the tweet. It is music to the true PC800 lover's ears

Hey guys. You all seem knowledgable so... I need to order a new rear tire today for a trip to the Adirondack's of NY from Ohio in a couple of weeks. I've read what I can find about the OEM Dunlop 555 vs the Metzler 880. I haven't had any issues with the Dunlop and probably have about 8k on it. I hear that the Metzler is "higher milage" but is it enough so that it's worth the extra $40? Does it ride nicer? Corner better? Handle better? Is it worth the extra? Thanks in advance. Also, has anyone here ever put a magnetic tank bag on the bike. I know it's possible, just looking for someone with experience. Later, Brian.

That is a very nice example of an 89. I love mine. It wasn't my first choice, but now that I've had it for a while, it'd be pretty hard to part with. There are quite a few bikes I'd rather have (if money were no object), but none that are more practical.

Hey Brian,

You should go to the IPCRC and do a search through their archives. This tire topic comes up all the time. Personally I have Metzlers on the front and rear. Usually it's a good idea to keep the same brand on both (I think). The only reason I have them is because that's what came with the bike when I bought it.

As for tank bags, people have glued magnets on the understand of the faux tank. It works well enough although you'll scratch the paint with a bag on top of it.

From the tiny pictures it looks in good shape. After being hesitant about the white color initially with my '89, I have come to love it. Everyone thinks I am a cop They REALLY respect me on the road and I have yet to have someone cut me off or not see me. And the ladies love it
