WTB My First GW

Postby The Grand Pooh-Bah » Mon Apr 23, 2012 9:17 pm



Looking for my first Gold Wing. Looking for an 88+ model. Working reverse is a must here. Not much level ground and I'm too old and tired to battle with a beast with no reverse. I don't have a lot of money burning a hole in my pocket so I'm looking for a killer deal. If anyone runs across a great deal I'd appreciate you sharing it with me.

Thanks
TGPB

If we are spending your $$, need to know your budget. I agree, get the reverse. I did a lot of research on Craigslist to get idea of market price, etc., etc. There are a lot of good deals out there.

$4K is my budget. I've seen a lot on craigslist but rarely get a response if they don't have a phone number.

$4k is pretty low for the 88 and newer.....I usually see them for $5k-$7k. Look at the link below, this is not bad at all if good condition. Needs front brake roter covers, but if that is it, everything else could look good. It has 80k miles but that is normal for a GW this age.

Check this one out....it has lower miles, has more comfies to it, and brake rotor covers....May be a little more out of your price base, but may be more to your liking.

Well I sold my Jeep and had my new baby in the garage after a 600 mile test ride with the wife on the back.
