    The Corbin absoloutely has to go!!!!

    Anyone want to trade a Corbin in need of a recover for an R80G/S dual seat they have?

    I also got two sets of BMW bag racks, one set of bags, a really nice orange solo seat (less the seat pan sadly), a chock full tool kit and that's about... oh, and need side covers as well, the PO have have those somewhere...

    The bike came from CO, and the local dealer confirmed to the local owner that somehwere before 19K miles, they put in a new clutch and rebuilt the transmission....

    edit 08/2008... no they didn't rebuild the trans, but yes the clutch stuff is almost new...

    First off, are you sure your not related to Phil Collins?
    Secondly, that boat you are on sure looks like the one that runs from Vashon to Fauntelroy.
    Thirdly, I love the bike, very cool fuel tank. I want one. Where do I get one??

    You know it, don't you: with that tank you need a new front suspension and a matching rear end!

    Nice find, Gage!
