It maybe cost prohibitive, but I thought I would ask. I have found several good, low mileage Silverwings that did not come with the ABS system.

Has someone researched this? Its only like $500 more when the bike is new.

Back in the hey-day of the the VW, a dealer in Conn. put a new Bug together from the parts bin, just to prove that he could. The over the counter cost of a new Bug was about $1800 at the time. The cost of the parts bin Bug (dealer cost, not retail) was over $13000. Add the dealer markup, and the parts bin Bug would have been over $18000.

Based on that, the $500 add on at purchase for a factory installed ABS would probably be somewhere in the $5000 range, with all new parts. With junk yard prices, probably half that but with no guarantee that it would work.

You'll have to search on here but we have discussed this before and the straight answer is yes it is do-able but not practical and very costly IIRC.

And No one in that discussion was willing to put in the time and energy and research necessary put a blueprint or tutorial for the conversion together because logically speaking, it is a fool's errand. If you want to prove to yourself that you can do it, then by all means get some personal satisfaction. Otherwise, using your logic, a used Silverwing w/ABS should be about $500 more than a used Silverwing without.

Thank you for your responses. I'll keep looking for the factory ABS model.
