I am a 73 Yr Old live in Goshen, IN.  I have been a rider for almost 60 years and now am slowing down a bit.  Having lost a bit of upper body strength makes getting on a lighter weight unit necessary.  It appears I will be receiving a wrecked 2008 SWing.  Damage starting with front cover/turn signal/left rear cover/drive cover.  This is the reason that prompted my joining and I wish to express my thanks for allowing me join.  Purchase price is $600.00 - Not being able to ride the unit (weather) I hope I am not buying a major problem.  I will be happy to receive any thoughts, hints, and instructions.

welcome welcome welcome


You've picked the wrong machine for that slowing down part. Laughing


Most questions have been asked and answered. Using the search function should help on those winter days when you can't ride.

Welcome to the forum. You are sure to find all the info you need to get your SWing on the road next spring. It seems you will need a complete set of tupperware. Ebay is my usual place to start.
Sounds like a great winter project, if you have a nice warm garage.

Jay.

Thanks for the welcome messages. I have been watching eBay but right now there is not a lot of the body parts that I am needing. I am finding listings for new oem parts. I have also been searching for a salvage/recycling business but finding little. Will still welcome suggestions or sources.

Welcome!

Good sign: It was running before it got wrecked. Probably a better prognosis than a seized up barn find. Cosmetics are easier to fix.

When I spilled my BMW F800 ST, the insurance estimate was just shy of $5,000, even though the only engine parts were a scratched muffler and a broken foot shifter. Could hardly see the scratch on the muffler, so it wasn't replaced, and the shift lever was just a bolt-on fix ($150). The rest was front fairing, turn signals, and left scratches on mirror, bar end, and saddle bags. Insurance quoted all parts to be replaced (all BMW OEM parts are expensive). A little black touch-up paint and a car body shop repaired the left front fairing. After about $800 worth of parts and cosmetic work, the bike looked and ran like new, and is still probably running out there somewhere.

Welcome KH

I dont know if our member siaturag  could help as he breaks SW regularly & perhaps come to an arrangement over prices v shipping.

Otherwise if you wish to research shipping costs perhaps bid on UK sites & I'm more than happy to send onward

or you could go 'necked' - body parts wont be 'cheap' (lets be honest in good running and cosmetic condition an 08 might get $2500 (if it has ABS, low miles etc.) but as a project it will be fun to see where you go.

Pointlessy taking my forum name in vain for reasons best known to yourself. But for once you're right 'don't tell Meldrew'.

Because I don't have the remotest interest in other members 'project' Silver Wings. Buy a decent one and spend your time riding it.
