So, what's the problem? A parts bike for $200. I mean, free is best, but that's not a lot, and you can probably sell anything you don't use and get your money back.

Not positive, but from all I've read on here, most everything is interchangeable.

you are correct almost everything else interchanges,this model does have self canceling signals and a little difference in the wiring harness,I believe I would tear his arm off to get it for that price if you have room to store it,if i were you.On the other hand if you need a set off stock bars I let you have a set for a 10 spot and shipping if that is all you want.Oh this is off topic but your pm about fishing Erie has me curious is the western Basin near Port Clinton?

I doubt you're going to have anyone talk you out of this my friend. It seems you need it and the price is right. You could make that 200 back pretty easily after you spend it. My advice? Go for it dude.

I would talk you out of it, but it will not do me any good since you are so far from me. lol

I got a parts bike in bad shape for 200$. I have sold some parts off of it. It is a good buy.

Don't do it. Send me his contact info so I can buy it and remove the temptation.
