Might as well start here. Some things have changed in my line up so some other things have to go. I LOVE this little bike, but the garage is loaded up now, and I need to make some room.

'84 Honda Ascot- 500cc V-Twin, Shaft Drive, water cooled, bla bla bla.

The ignition switch puked it guts all over my driveway awhile back, and I finally found a replacement. It ought to be here soon. While I was waiting I wired in a West Marine heavy duty toggle switch for in town/test rides (yeah you can test ride it) I'll either put the new switch in upon arrival, or send it along with the new owner. I did not cut the factory harness to wire the toggle in. New switch should be plug and play. Tank is solid, carbs have been gone through, etc..
Every fluid in it is fresh, and synthetic. About 18k
ADV price 1500 with the optional VC jacket
Craigslist price $4










Fresh Kenda 270 up front


Trailwing out back

Man oh man, I've always wanted an Ascot, but I'm trying to pick one bike to sell off to de-clutter as well. Crap!

Also note how thin this bike is... takes up very little space

I have a Corbin low, flat platform seat for a KLR650 ("low dualsport platform). Should fit 87-2012, according to Corbin website. Seat is pretty much new; very little use, if any. Still in the original box and packaging. Uncle ordered for his KLR years ago, sold the bike before he really used it, and now it's just sat in the box of his garage. I have the seat in Tallahassee with me, now. I don't own a KLR, so no use for it. Looks uber comfy.

Asking $175 OBO. Can post pictures later today. Retails for $379 new, sans tax or shipping.

Of course! If I throw in a milk crate and some bungee cords, would that make it a deal?
