A widow friend asked that I help her sell her husbands bike, a 81, I believe. It's a 500. I've only seen it once. It looks pretty sad having set in a sideless shed for over five years. Her husband started to install a clutch, then got sick and passed away. I searched near where he disassembled it but I can not find the old clutch plates/discs nor the clutch basket. At this point I'm thinking she would be best off selling it as is for parts or someone familiar with it to rebuild. It has a full fairing and side cases. But like I said I'm not going to mess with it unless I knew there was someone interested in it. If so I could get some pics. We are thinking $500 OBO would be a good starting place.
The bike is located in mid MO just north of I-44 & Hwy 68 at St. James MO.
If anyone is interested Give me a call. Stan 573-646-3863.
I know these were popular touring bikes in their time.
I ride a 2014 CTX 1300 a one year bike and another well kept secret from Honda.
Thanks
