MintCond.Harley-Davidson Touring Quad - $815
all it needs is a set of knobbies
Is it just me or does the seat / fender / rear look off a little??
Kill it with fire before it can breed!
I saw an ES version of that bike at some sort of dealer up in Loveland last Friday. ES is the one with the fairing. The dealer is on the west side of northbound 287 in a repurposed old gas station.
Back in 1983 when I bought my VF750F a friend of mine bought the ES, I didn't like it then but I sure do now!
Love the ES version, always wanted one. These GS's are fantastic old bikes and the motors are bullet proof. The one pictured here looks cherry and if the carbs were gone through an it idles that would be a fantastic Colorado play bike.
man, Ian you sold me the 1982 GS1100 too cheap, then i sold it too cheap too. 2500$ is a ton!
Yeah, that guy in Loveland wants $4295 for that 700 which is a bit too much really, you could probly find a nice 750 slabside for that
Correct, way too cheap
Those old roller bearing bottom ends last forever...
I paid $895 for this one off craigslist a few years ago
The old GSs were beasts, made a ton of HP for the time. Lot's of street racers switched from the Z1s to the GS11 after they got spanked by one. The GSs had a bad habit of twisting the cranks when drag raced, dump the clutch at 6 grand and there was a fair chance you'd twist it, too much HP to hang an alternator out at the end of the crankshaft. Normal riders never had that issue, just the guys racing them. Repairing GS crankshafts is what put Falicon on the map. After that Suzuki and pretty much everyone else moved the alternator below the carbs when they redesigned their motors.
Now there's a name from the past....I've used Falicon slotted cam sprockets in a number of bikes back in the 90's, degreeing the cams for optimal performance (I should say, having an engine guy degree the cams for me! )
Those little blueprinting items add up.
You'd need to factor in the crap you'd catch for being the guy showing up in the "Short Bus"
I wonder how bad it is on gas? The aerodynamics aren't exactly state of the art.
I've got that same Chevy base chassis with the 6.0 and a 12' box on it in my plumbing company. 10-12 mpg and it never leaves town. I doubt highway would be any different.
Probably worse at highway speeds.
Probably a pain in the arse to load through that small door. If it had a wheelchair lift...
