    GL 650 in the Twin Cities

    The bike has 34.5K miles and is running, albeit a little rough. It's got a Hagon shock, brass rod, Halogen headlight, main fuse upgrade, luggage rack/sissy bar, small National plexi windshield, trunk, and highway pegs. There are also some additional parts: A Vetter Vindicator, another trunk of some kind, the old Pro Link, an XVS650 shock from when I was going to do a conversion, a new set of rear pads, and some other unidentified parts that came with it.

    It's time for me to let it go for a variety of reasons. But like many of you, I've grown fond of it. I just wanted to see if anyone here was interested because I know it will be well-cared for among this group before I head to Craigslist. I haven't posted a ton, but you all your knowledge has sure helped me over the last few years. I'm attaching a picture of the good side, but I can add more or send them to you if you are interested. I'm thinking $1,600 is fair with the extras. Please PM if you have questions or interest.

    So, nevermind. Contacted Murray for a set of carbs, pipe adapters, and heavy clutch springs. Swapped 'em all in and added a set of mufflers off a Harley. Just having too much fun now. I picked my daughter up from swim practice Sunday. When we got home, she asked if I'd pick her up from school on the bike. That, my friends, is worth more than money.

    I drive my motorcycle whenever I can, but sometimes am forced to take my minivan. My brother said it best, 'You are a cowboy, sometimes you take the horse, sometimes you gotta take the wagon'
