GL1200 Standard (Possibly Sold)

#1

Post by Lucien Harpress »

Well, all things must come to an end, and I get the feeling it's time to let my '84 Standard 1200 go. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it- I've just got some plans and ideas for the future, and since I've had some time to think about it, the "smile" factor just isn't quite there anymore. I enjoy it, but I don't think I "love" it.

First and foremost, this is a 100% needs-nothing bike. Tires are only a couple years old, along with the battery. Brakes were gone through two or three years ago, and the clutch slave cylinder was just rebuilt a couple days ago. It has been repainted, but in the stock black color with correct pinstripes and all new emblems. It's currently got a bit over 68,000 miles on the clock, but this may go up depending on how long it takes me to sell. Starts up even in Michigan winters no problem, and in all my years of owning it have NEVER had a problem with it mechanically.

It's currently set up in a touring/cruiser getup, with Saddlemen bags, highway boards, fog lights, trailer hitch, etc. However, if all the farkles aren't your thing, all of the Standard GL1200 "stuff" (minus the grab rail) is there. Plastic tank inserts, radiator fins, headlight/blinker mounts, etc. I made a point to allow anything I did to the bike to be UNdone later, if I or anyone else chose.

There is a bit of a patinia on the upper valve covers, but only because it's a bike that's been ridden. Maybe a couple bugs stuck in places the last wash didn't get to either. :lol: I can also get additional photos (in slightly better quality) upon request.

EDIT: Possibly sold. Mucking about with details, but probably an 80% done deal.

I've got some ideas for the future, but those ideas need space and funds. It's been a solid workhorse for years. I'm just personally looking at going a different direction.

I've actually been thinking about that. If I've still got it by then and you wouldn't mind sparing a spot, I'd love to set it out (at least for one day).

Managed to make some math work with the projects I have and what I want to do, so I was able to bump the price down a bit more. Got her down to $2900.

Hmm. On 2/23 above, you are asking for $3,000 OBO. Not sure how you dropped it to $3,200, but either price is a deal for that fine machine.
