You may or may not have noticed I haven't been around in a while. I dumped my poor bike (again) in December. While sliding on I-45 from 60MPH down to 0 I was staring at the car behind me praying that they wouldn't run me over. They didn't; whew. Anyway I picked myself and the bike up, rode it to work and then home. I was wondering if I would miss it after caging it for a few months. Well, I conclude I don't. So here you go. If anyone needs a well abused old Honda Shadow. It runs and rides, but has issues.
1. no right mirror (see the below pictures).
2. it is dirtier than your bathroom.
3. has an oil leak on the rear main seal.
4. no tread (heck no rubber) left on the front tire.
5. There is a itty bitty leak of coolant from the tube between the front and rear cylinders.
6. crunched up gas tank, burt out front turn signal light, and assorted scuffs from throwing it down the rode by itself (see pictures).
7. probably something that I didn't notice yet.
8. comes with scuffed up cobra pipes and a jet kit.

Anyway, that's why it's so cheap. Buy this for some holiganism with what few ponies are left from the original 35. For someone starting and worried about dumping this; they don't have to worry it comes pre-dumped! or for some poor guy (or girl) who needs really cheap transportation.

Anyway PM me or post here.

Now for the grisly pictures of this poor mistreating thing (if you want better or daylight pictures let me know).

Thanks, Spartandude.





This was from a previous wreck. Hence the rust.








and the reason I crashed. A frickin' bald tire (my cheapasses fault).


the oil leak.


see, burnt out signal light.


mileage and the oil light goes out when it is running (another added feature).


Oh, and in case anyone was wondering about me, I only sprained my wrist and bruised my leg.

I say you sell it to Tony just because he's another honest and good guy lol. He would probably restore it to its former glory to boot!
