    One of my friends used to have one of that vintage. The license plate said, "Shubox". :lol3

    First two basic questions:

    Is there any mold/health concerns? I can't tell - are the windows smashed? If they are.. then yes there is.. you'd have to gut it and it would be rotted out.
    Do you have somewhere to put it for free?

    ...but regardless.. I'd still say NO unless you need a "Breaking Bad" rolling meth lab or you have a bunch of buddies and you are planning on having an afternoon of fun ala TopGear :rofl

    Oh. And what's it going to cost to tow that thing home? Again - assuming the tires are good enough.

    My vote is still NO!

    I would only take it if the guy would let me take the tires, axle, mirrors, guages and a few other items and then pull it away from his house and set it on fire. And if he would provide the marshmellows.

    Now now. Don't be so quick to dismiss. There is potential in this heap to be a hunting camp. Take the wheels off an slide it into a spot in the woods, put a roof over it, shore it up and add a pallet deck. A few bunks and a poker table, wood stove in the corner.

    Let me know the address and I will be move in soon. :rofl

    Thanks for the ride today, Marc.... I needed to get out, even for a short one.

    Didn't really get enough of that nice R1200GS in the frame, did I ? :lol3

    Thank you Blake. It was a blast and I might even be able to put up with the coming week.

    I did head up Coal creek a ways on the way home and it got a bit chilly.

    No and hell no. That's a wood frame with aluminum siding. When water gets into the walls and ceilings, things on will rot very quickly. You're going to discover cancer everywhere you look. It's not even worth stripping for scrap metal.

    There's only one solution for that Winnie.

    could be :nod

    I rode surface streets up to Marc's place and killed 90 minutes rambling around getting up north.
    We took a pretty short spin, old Wads to 100th out past Stoney Creek 9-hole course to Indiana - then a rip thru Candelas Pkwy west of Standley Lake to 93 and south to Golden for a cuppa joe at Noa Noa, sat and talked... and wished I had warmer gloves :lol3
