Howdy all,

Got this 2004 Silverwing with 20K miles off of Phoenix Craiglist a few months ago for $1500:

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) JRY6jnB

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) 5cIGxUG

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) WMOSE8P

A little dusty, a little crusty, but she was all there.

So, after washing, claybaring, and waxing:

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) VQ2rCdu

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) T6UAuHW

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) YNgAPiq

New Silverwing owner in Arizona (that rhymes!) TsVb8B3

Ditched the janky speaker system, polished out the Clear View shield, went through it and replaced:

Spark plugs
Oil
Coolant
Drive belt
Tires

As she sits now:

Comfort mod:

3 Brothers Performance wide backrest

Performance mods:

K & N air filter
Powercommander III USB
Dr. Pulley 24gr weights
Delkevic 17" Tri oval exhaust

Enjoying my time with the bike, going on a road trip with the Phoenix Scooter club to Route 66 in October.

If anyone in the area needs to borrow a variator removal tool, I made a pretty good one.

Cool

Yep, I couldn't pass it up for $1500.

I was laughing my butt off when I test rode it, same when I rip around town on it.

Definitely a ton of fun!

Oh, and here's the sticker on the front:

Welcome RarestRX. This is a great site and you have a very nice looking SWing. We have only about 3 weeks of riding up here in Cold Country. A bit of an exaggeration about summer... 4-4 1/2 weeks.

Welcome to the forum! I live in Wickenburg most of the year and may be interested in the Route 66 ride. Do you have the dates?

Thanks.
