Found a locksmith who does these new keys on the UES.
Abbey Locksmith on 81st and 2nd. They can even code the transponder if needed.

From what I have gathered so far is the locksmith or dealer needs to have a sidewinder or laser key cutter.
It's my spare for the Guzzi Griso.
Merry Christmas!

Sorry I couldn't help in time but I've used uhaul a few times and rented their trailers - i have a hitch mount on my minivan. ends up being pretty affordable. Glad to lend a hand in the future if anyone needs and I'm available.

Hey guys,

I'm new to the forum and bikes in general. Grew up still live in Brooklyn and plan on using a bike for work commutes and trips.

Just picked this '85 700S last week.






I'm pretty good at wrenching on cars so I hope to transition smoothly to bikes.

As a noob, I will definitely be picking your collective brains regarding the ins and outs of having a bike in the city.

Thanks in advance and Merry Xmas everyone.

Welcome, great bike!

When I had mine, same color even, I thought it was the easiest bike to maintain. Hydraulic valves, clutch, drive shaft, all you had to do was change the oil which was located in the frame. Don't forget there are 2 oil drain plugs in the frame bottom.

Used to get a kick when it came on the cam at about 7K RPM's and took off.

Have fun with it!


Happy holidays to all!!

Nice ride, good luck with it and welcome. I always like the Nighthawk S. I mean it has overdrive, says it right on the dash. Well it says it when the gear indicator actually works.

Sorry! I missed the original post. I've used them before. Decent prices, quick service.

Great urban assault vehicle! Rode mine from Queens to the city for 6 years before sending it out to Colorado...

Sweet bike! Super low maintenance - shaft drive and self-adjusting hydraulic valve clearance. You never need to screw around with the valves. Unfortunately, they figured out that there's plenty of profit in valve adjustments, and no one has made a bike like it since.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I havent registered or given her a TuneUp yet.

She definitely needs Carbs synced, oil changes, shaft and motor, plugs etc. So I doubt ill make the New Years ride. Definitely looking forward to some future rides and meetups though.

The Schwartz, you mentioned wrenching on an old GS. any recommendations for local parts places, or good cheap places online for maintenance items?

Thanks in advance!

If your an AMA member you get a discount at Bikebandit.com I usually order my spark plugs and filters from a dealership just because they really aren't that much different in price. I have a local mechanic in brooklyn that is great with carbs and you won't feel like you've been robbed at gun point after you hand over your money. Send me a PM if you need any help with anything.
