Honda Magna description

Up for sale is my unrestored V65 Magna. Has 24,xxx miles and is in nice shape for the age.
These were the "original" muscle cruisers cabable of 11 sec 1/4 mile out of the box.
Impressive technology that rivals modern sport bikes.

Non perfect items:

- Left side muffler is dented from previous owner.
- Gas tank has some minor shallow dents (can't even see them in the pics).
- Small scuffs on engine guard.
- Carbs could use a good cleaning. Idles with choke 1/2 on.

The good items:

- Chrome is in good to excellent condition.
- No pitting on aluminum.
- Guage cluster is pristene, no fading on the lettering or guage faces.
- Front master cylinder and claipers have been rebuilt.
- Rear tire is very good condition.
- Front tire is showing its age.
- No second gear shift issues. Common on bikes that were run very hard.
- Runs very strong. So good it scares me. Like a white knuckle roller coaster ride.
- Has a Slipstreamer windshield that works very well.
- Bike still has all the original paint, decals/warning stickers and tool kit.
- Has a Corbin seat in excellent condition.

Bike is ridden and not a trailer queen nor is it a concours show bike. It has normal wear on the normal wear points. It is an exceptional example. You won't be disappointed. I am 55 years old and don't abuse any of my vehicles. I have other bikes that get more ride time plus a wedding to pay for so this one is going.

I can take more detailed pics at your request.

Bike is licensed and insured, but no test rides unless cash is in my hand. This bike is not for beginners.

Continental Tire announced a voluntary recall campaign for certain ContiMotion sport-touring tires. According to Continental, market feedback has shown some tires may experience uneven wear from the 180/60R16 74H ContiMotion rear tires. Tires may develop groove cracking and, in some cases, belt lift, conditions which can lead to a loss of tire inflation pressure and a potential for loss of control.

John Gibson had a vision 15 years ago to sell ice cream from a motorcycle sidecar, inspired while running as he listening to motivational guru, Tony Robins. After years of experimenting with different bikes and setups, including using the Russian made Ural (he once owned a Ural dealership), Gibson, finally settled on the Honda 750 Shadow and the Harley-Davidson 883 Sportster. The Cool Cycles Ice Cream Company is open for business, the headquarters are located in Tacoma, WA where they will start selling franchises within a 100 mile radius, the Los Angeles area will be next and Las Vegas to follow.
