I am interested in purchasing a Honda Shadow 1100 for a daily bike. My first bike was a 86 VT700, then 600CBR, and finally a Hayabusa. I am not just wanting to relax and cruise plus get decent MPG.

This is the bike I am look at, good deal or no?
1985 Honda Shadow VT 1100 for Christmas!

Thanks

Good looking bike. Offer him $1000 cash and hope he accepts nothing over 1250.00. Good luck!

Nice looking ride. From the pics, it looks like it has been well maintained.

After the 'Busa, it'll feel like a slug.

Good strategy. 1500 seems a little high for a "reduced price". Nada concurs.

Other thought is if this is an everyday bike, you might want a later model. Could be a little less maintenance, but that's also part of the fun.

I just snagged a 2000 Shadow 1100 with 16,000 miles for $2700 a few weeks ago in Winston-Salem.

You're a brave person asking this group what they think! On the other hand your mc idea looks like a nice older bike. Seems well
Taken care of. Good luck

Thanks guys for your advice. I tried last night to get him down to 1250 but he said he would drop it $50 off the 1550 price. I plan to drive this daily but if its down for repairs I don't mind I like to tinker. I had a 85 VT750 is the power difference noticable to the 1100?

If I do test it out what do you recommend I check to make sure its not a lemon?

Thanks!
