I noticed the other day that the final drive housing is also cracked so I added that to the list of items to replace. I've about decided to buy another GS and take what I need and sell off the rest.

Send it to Computrack and get it realigned. No need to pitch it.

I've bought several Handy lifts from CL for around the same price as the HF.

Thanks Steve! My "Barn Find" this past summer, languishing in a cheap, run-down warehouse, parked in 2001 by the original owner and ignored by him. chassis # 44 of 50 and 3,817 original miles on it. I've got it running and am continuing to restore it. By Spring it will be 100% !

I have an electric Handy... it is a brick, i.e. does what it is supposed to do and has a shaft... You bump it up to exactly where you want it, and there it stays.

Major deal on it; motor was blown. Grainger had the exact motor. A little fiddling for an hour, poof! I am sure it will serve me well for decades.

Put it this way: I would host three or four go-go dancers on my Handy. Dunno about the Harbor Freight

BWWAHAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! The new standard by which all m/c lifts should be judged. Well done.

Oh, right. I read about this one on Wild Guzzi. You've done very well,,,,not too often the 'costs' of motorcycle ownership can be offset at the very start of ownership.
