I am fortunate to have an 89 being loaned to me while I rebuild the engine in my car. It has been my only transportation for the last 4 or 5 weeks and I'm in no hurry to get the car done. The trunk is great, mileage is great, weather protection is great... I took a 280 mile trip on it no problem. I'm 6'2" and totally comfortable. It has the Honda tall screen and about 28k on it. New rear tire. Choke cable is a little sticky but works. I'm selling it for my friend when I'm done with it unless I get too attached to let it go. If anyone is interested, let me know. It doesn't appear to have ever been down as the crash bar covers are not scratched at all and it runs like clockwork. I'll probably be ready to part w/ it in another month or so if anyones interested. A bike just isn't in my budget at the moment unfortunately. Oh, and if you keep your toes above the pegs, you don't get wet from mid chest down as long as you are moving and only sprinkled on up top. Great bike. Has 2 different height back rests also.
Got any pictures?? I have always wanted a PC800 !

They make excellent beer carriers/coolers.

BTW, this is not my bike.

Great commuter and tourer

I love my 96 PC. It's a great commuter and ok at touring. Not a sporting bike but you can out ride most sport bike riders once the road starts to curve. Wish it came with factory highway pegs , stronger electrical system and a bigger tank. Most Vanilla pudding ride I've ever owned but that can be a good thing when the road is what you want to pay attention to and not the bike you're on.

'89 Pc800

Picked up my (not gay) cousin's '89 today. He cardiaced out 1.5 years ago and left it in his garage with 12K on odom. It was last registered in '97 and has slight rash on right side, mirror hanging by thin cable and 14 ga., but could be saved with tires, battery, fluids, windshield and the gas tank will need the Eastwood treatment. I figure $700 for all + shop manual. I'm sure the bike has seen freezing weather for months on end so what are consequences of poor or bad coolant? (Vermin?)

My wife's been considering a ride and we thought this one might be the one. What do you think? Any ideas? Anyone? Anyone?

I ride:
'76 R60/6
'77 R100/7
2005 Connie
2007 KLR 650

The bikers at IPCRC could answer this better than these goof balls. Google Honda Pacific Coast. Good luck........RedRocket is probably right.

Try putting some fresh gas, and a battery in it. I'll bet it runs.

Whew!

All body plastic off and cleaned! The PC looks like a fugitive from a Mad Max movie without its skin. Drained tank, fresh gas. Plugs good but what-the-hell, won't have the plastics off again soon (I hope) so new plugs. Oil/filter, rear gear oil, front brake pads, fork seals, eBayed foot rest and ordered Rifle windshield. Just needs registration and a-way-we-go.

Thanks for advise

Welcome to the asylum....many safe and fun miles to you on the PC and beyond..

It's so funny reading posts from men worried about a motorcycle looking gay. Is it because ya'll are worried you might turn gay, or that it will finally open the closet door?

What kind of motorcycle do you have to ride to feel manly, and superior? Seems to me if I needed a compensation piece for a lack of manhood, sex appeal, etc, I damn sure wouldn't broadcast it on a public forum like some of ya'll do here....

No one ever said anything negative to my face about my little PC. One time there were a few snickers from the usual suspects gathered at the infield in Daytona International Speedway when we first pulled up and parked.....snickers turned into curiosity when I lifted the trunk lid and exposed the cooler on one side....then they tried to suck up (no pun intended) for a free drink...

I was 6'4" and 240 to 265lbs while I owned my '89 PC, it was completely stock, trouble free, and fun to ride solo or 2up. I bought it new in March of '91 for $4650.00 OTD, and sold it in December of '93 for $4000.00 to buy a brand new Kawasaki Voyager full blown (once again no pun intended for those worried about losing their manliness) touring bike with all the bells and whistles....regretted selling the PC a month later, and ended up getting rid of the Voyager in Dec of '94.

I'm hopping my friend buys a PC this year...he has a friend about to sell... I think it's a great bike, and untill I fork out the cash for more luggage, I don't have enough room on my Nighthawk for all our stuff. ( btw, the curse of owning a PC is everyone you ride with wants you to be the pack mule)

We're both pretty secure in our manhood, and as we are both, large, ugly, and generaly armed... I think we can handle the "scooter" talk.

I have a bumper sticker that says " START DATING MOTORCYCLISTS" and I've been thinking of slapping it on my PC800

Once again, given the proliferation of large, highway capable "scooters" out there today, it appears Honda was years ahead of the game. Again.
