Howdy all,

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







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

So, after washing, claybaring, and waxing:











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.

Thanks.
