    '82 GL500i for sale...regretfully, it is mine.

    I'm relocating from South-Central Illinois to Memphis for work and won't be able to take my treasured Silverwing with me. So she's up for sale. I'm offering her here first and if there's no interest then to the general public.

    I bought her in 2011 with around 4000 miles on the clock...she's at 34000 and change now. I added the passenger seat and grab bar, the Markland trunk extender and rider's backrest which come with the bike. I've performed the main fuse mod and JB Weld drooping-mirror mod. I performed oil & filter change with cam chain and valve clearance adjustment every 3000 to 3500 miles. All lights etc work and she purrs like she should. Dependable is an understatement.

    I had a serious car accident in January (broken clavicle, two ribs and left wrist), so I haven't been able to ride at all this Spring. I also haven't been able to perform the maintenance that's due; oil & filter valve and cam chain adj. She needs a new rear tire - the front has a season or two left in it. My plan was for tapered neck bearings and fork seals this year but alas this won't happen.

    She's not perfect. You'll notice in the pics that the rear cowl has a crack/hole in it, the front fender has a scar from brake fluid dripping on it and the fairing inner shell is cracked on the right side (parking lot vandalism). I'm going to ask $1800 if I list it to the general public. If any members are interested feel free to PM me with an offer.

    Thanks

    You can make the faring better, take out the pocket and push the parts back to being flush then use this, I fixed a bad fairing on mine .https://www.lowes.com/pd/Oatey-Fix-I...-Epoxy-Putty/3

    Did you apply it to the outside or inside?

    Put it on the inside, its gray putty epoxy.My faring was broken from the mount, this is putty and does not run like regular epoxy, it bonds hard as a rock.

    I should have been more specific...I'm asking $1200 from any forum member. That's a 33% discount!

    Any interest? Too high? Too low? No one in the area?

    Too far from me and no place to put it. Otherwise it would be great to have even if it was just to swap parts around.

    I would have no time to ride if I had to do all the routine maintenance and cosmetics suggested, I chose riding (within my reasoning).

    Epoxy is not the way to fix an ABS part (like the fairing). It will not flex the same way as the fairing and will eventually let go. The best way to fix that would be to attach a piece of ABS sheet to the inside using ABS cement (as used for ABS pipes).
