Hi folks !
Name's Bunky, 58, male, Maryland. Gettin' back in the saddle after about 25 yrs. and lovin' it ! A friend went down on a 94 Honda 600 Shadow and it scared the hell out of him. He sold it to me for $200.00 !! Runs great. Fist size dent in tank, busted clutch perch and turn sig, bent peg were the only damage. Fork seal leaked but after about $100.00 and a little work, I have a great bike! Still need to fix the tank and need the left side cover but it feels good to be back on the rode again. Thanks for havin' me here !
Bunky
I tried to send a pic but couldn't figure out how, new at this stuff !!

Welcome to the site. Glad you are enjoying the new scoot! Best of luck on fixing the tank. Maybe poke around on Ebay and see if you can find a used one in good condition. Might be cheaper.

Thanks for the welcome guys !
Yeah, the best deal I've gotten in a long time ! He's OK and the tale of the big wreck gets bigger everytime he tells it !! The tank will make a good winter project. It's not all that bad. My experience with Ebay was alot like marraige, they got the gold mine and I got the shaft !! Thanks again Guys. By the way, can you post pics here and if so how ?
