    Just talked to a guy with this pair in his shed... two '81 G/S's... both titled, one rough and one rougher than the first!

    $4k, which I think is too high....

    I am guessing the blue tank is on the wrong bike.

    that white one is probably the '81, my '82 looked just like that blue one.

    not quite so ratty

    offer $2500 for both

    with the plugs out of the one who knows what is living in there.

    good luck!

    What is it about these things? I started looking for one and ended up with a pair also. You could always use one to pay for the other :evil

    Yo Solo,

    Is that 4K for both of them?:deal If so, I think r-dubb has the idea. Between the two you should be able to build a sweet ride and then sell off the rest to fund shocks/charging system, etc.:wink:

    If they were $2500, I'd be on my way to get 'em.. unfortunately the guy is set on $4K and initially got about 25 calls... then lost the numbers and called me.

    Don't think I can swing this one right now...

    If anyone is interested, I will go p/u both bikes, store the "good one" for you up to 6 months, pay you $700 for the "bad one" and deliver the "good one" to the shipper of your choice...

    Anyone interested? I'll send along the seller # if so...

    how could someone smart enough to own 2 of these be negligent enough to store in such a crappy environment.
    2500 and a firm slap would be doing the guy a favor.
