Congratulations to you and the new owner.  

Somebody got a gorgeous VX.  

Not many left methinks.

Congratulations to you Chuck and Bill. Sure is nice to see something like this come together...knowing the bike going to a good home is always a relief...at least it has been for me.

Cheers,

Thank You to all the "Regulars" for the kind words and good wishes.  I too was hoping to sell my bike to someone who would appreciate it as more than just a "cheap ride".  It was for that precise reason that I was dragging my feet on advertising the bike in the local rags.  I didn't want some young Squid-wannabe to buy it, and crash it the first time out.  I was hoping for a more mature rider, who would treat the old VX right.  I believe I may have been successful in that regard.  I hope the new owner keeps the board up to date on how he likes his new mount, and continues to benefit from the collective wisdom of this forum.  Best of luck to all of you, and Ride Safe!

Cheers,
Thank you very much! As for the VX, it will be in good hands. My last Suzuki was a '79 GS1000E that I purchased about 12 years ago. It had 3k miles on it and had been sitting in a heated garage for over 10 years! It was quite a find! In fact, I met my wife on that bike, though she wasn't my wife at the time.  ;)

In any case, the bike was cleaner the day I sold it than it was the day I bought it! A couple times a year I would spend 6 to 8 hours detailing every inch of her. Same goes for my HD now.

So chuck, your old VX will be in good hands, and look quite nicely I might add, when parked next to my '72 442 (to be finished one day!), and my newly aquired '89 ASC/McLaren convertible. A very yellow ASC/McLaren!

If anyone is interested, my 2001 HD Dyna Glide T-Sport is now for sale.

What was she doing on your bike? Inquiring minds and all that ..
