I'm not sure of the cost of shipping to and from? However, this is an excellent business for what you need:

Re: CB Antenna / flag pole question

First, interesting question. I sold, installed and tuned CB's as a hobby for a while. Set the SWR on many Wings. None ever had a flag mount attached any where on the antenna. Secondly, unless it is a mount that attaches to the base of the antenna, the part that has the fold over hinge, I have read q...

Re: put away for winter

Any stabilizer should be added to an almost empty tank, Then fill the tank. Then ride the bike for about 10/15 minutes to ensure the mix gets to the injectors or carb, whichever you have.

Did you make sure the seat and the passenger back rest are properly plugged in? No bent or broken pins?

Re: Sea Foam

Use it for fuel stabilizer for winter storage in the trike and all lawn equipment. Other than that there is no need to use it. Directions on the can tells the amount to use.

Re: Just wanted to know - warranty issue

Mother Honda claims bent/worn shifter forks + "other" tranny failures can be caused by "hard" sifting with heel/toe shifters.
Yes, it applies to extended warranty also.

Re: Is This 93 SE Worth a Look?

I like the aftermarket seat, and the fact that it only has 50K miles on it. The different color saddlebags wouldn't be hard to fix . It obviously needs a new windshield, of course. If it will run, it's certainly worth well in excess of $1000, IMHO. While true, still begs to ask, why are they differ...

Re: 91 aspencade heavy front dive on forks when braking

It's time to refurbish your forks!
I would suggest, if you have the finances, Progressive Monotubes.
I doubt the ADV is bad as the failure mode is usually a stuck valve in the "on" position causing the fork to lock up!
