Silverwing Interstate GL500
« on: July 30, 2017, 08:52:48 AM »
Here's a pretty good buy, but NOT at the listed price!  I've always thought I wanted one of these.  Still do, I guess!  Anyway, I went at looked at it yesterday.  Nice bike, 11k miles.  Has all the original stuff, back rack, bags.  Has a couple pieces of plastic cracked and both pipes have rust holes at the bottom.  Starts right up.

Price; He wants 1800 bucks.  I told him maybe a $1000.  He said another guy said the same thing.  So he said, I'll take a thousand.  Hmmm 
Honestly, he might take less than 1k.  He wanted me to offer him something, I was afraid if I did he'd take it!  I did ride it, seems fine.  If I could make this into one of the those dual sports I've heard about......done deal.  But how much does that all cost.

Called Loingrader (he loves them), he said buy it, great deal and will run forever.  So I'm still thinking.  I just thought maybe some here might be looking for one.

this is interesting...at least in concept.  I have too many projects or I'd be interested.
