1982 Vision for restoration or parts
« on: December 21, 2017, 09:28:21 PM »
I'm looking for a home for my 1982 Vision. It was ridden for a few years and 9094 miles, then put away in the garage where it still sits.
It would be nice if someone could use it. I'm located in central NJ, you'd need to pick it up. Price negotiable.

This poor bike has been languishing for some time.  I almost wish it was not in my state.

I saw those Krauser bags first but they are HUGE. I wonder what they are for?

I used to commute on this bike, so the saddlebags held raingear, briefcase, and sometimes a spare helmet.

fret not

This one would be a nice project for someone of the proper temperament. 8)

I should add that I have no great "need" for this bike so any interested parties should not be discouraged from PM'ing the owner.

My interest is not in a restoration so if there is anyone looking for such a project you might be inclined to offer more for it than I am - which is good for the owner.

The bike is now gone to a good home. I hope the buyer gets it running again and has years of enjoyment.
