Feeler: 1989 Honda PC800 "Pacific Coast"

Discussion in 'Motorcycles' started by krautBurner, Sep 12, 2008.


  1. to start,
    I'm not sure when (or even if) it's going up for sale.

    I'm wondering what this thing may be worth, and if anyone around here may be interested.
    Price: $3000 OBO or Trade for clean RD350, older VFR, or anything else that may be cool



    it's a 1989 Honda Pacific Coast (PC800)
    it's Pearl White, has about 60,000 miles on her
    fairly new tires (2 years / less than 2K miles)
    New Battery (this summer)
    "Tall" Honda windshield (new)
    heated grips
    am/FM Radio
    sissy bar / back rest
    Rich's Custom Seat
    bike had a "Professional Tune Up" from a local bike shop about 2 years ago

    my dad has had it sitting in his garage for 2 years,
    barely ever rides it (keeps it on a battery tender)
    says he just dosn't feel comfortable on it, he can't flat foot it, and hasn't regularly ridden a bike in about 10 years (he's 5' 4" with 28" inseam)

    Bike Starts / Runs / Rides Very well
    super easy to ride has enough power to sustain highway speeds thru the mountains

    it's pretty comfortable, would make a great commuter with it's "Trunk" for your gear


    no pics right now



    again, I don't know what to ask for it.
    I may just keep it and use it for teaching my GirlFriend to ride and to commute on.


    if you're really interested,
    make me an offer (Cash, beginer bike, something cool, ect....)




    BTW:
    the bike is currently in Roseburg, Or
    I will be headed down to pick it up and ride it back to Seattle area (Bremerton) sometime in the next month

  3. Good luck with the sale, I like the PC800, have one sitting in the garage that I need to finish putting back together.
     
  4. 'beans says...

    "• If you are listing something For Sale, you must include a price with it."
     
  5. Looks like half an Accord- crackup:
     
  6. I just sold a 1990 Honda Pacific Coast, new tires, new brakes, re-covered seat. The bike was on a SALVAGED title and still had scuffs and scratches. It needed a Tune up and smoked a bit. It had a little over 69,000 miles on it. I sold it for $2500.00 with a salvaged title on craigslist they did not even try to argue price. Ebay they are going between 3500 and 4000 a cult bike. I would say put it at $3500.00 to $4000.00 /best offer and it will be gone in a few weeks. List on Ebay with a reserve of $3000.00 and it will probably go for more.
     




  7. thanks for the help (and raising your post count):tard:
     


  8. Thanks Taz,

    that's what I've found on Craigslist and Ebay,
    kinda surprized that they are going for $4K
     
  9. I'm not feeling it but someone else will, g/l.

  12. hmmm....

    I gotta try that damn search thingy
     
  13. I don't knee drag but I do like to corner and the PC800 is a very underestimated bike when it comes to handling. There is a lot of things I miss about not having it but I really like naked type standards. The real surprise is the have such a cult following and yahoo group list that is huge the bikes retain their value. There are only so many left.
     


  14. yeah,
    it actually handles very well for it's size,

    super easy to ride, very neutral
    easy to flick around
     
  15. I have a '94 and I'll never sell it. I put Progressive springs in the forks, Galfer lines & pads in the front brakes and Works Performance shocks in the back. It handles very well, even two up at MGVW. I hacksawed off those rediculous disc covers so the brakes wouldn't fade and if anyone wants to know how to do it, send me a PM and I'll tell you how.
    Best thing about it from my point of view is how well its balanced. Easy to ride with virtually no bad habits, even if it is a little under powered. I took the Lee Parks Total Control class on it and was dragging my knee.
     
  16. anyone?

    it would make a good fall/winter/spring commuter
     
  17. well,

    it's officially for sale.
    tired of it sitting in the garage taking up space

    $2000


    now has almost 63,930 miles as of today

    did the hood canal loop on Sunday
    rode it across the ferry to seattle yesterday and today.
    no real mechanical issues.
     
  18. Whats with the left mirror/signal? Looks lumpy.

    And I abso-fucking-lutely love the starbucks cup in the cup holder, no way someone would guess this is coming out of the west side of the cascades.

    I would love to pic this up for 2 up with the wife.
     
  19. left mirror / signal:
    it's white duct tape
    my old man dropped her at a stop sign on a hill,
    cracked the fairing around the mirror

    it's secure, turn signal works
    mirror lense isn't scratched.

    the starbux cup is in the "glove box"
    big enough for my silk glove liners, garage opener, and wallet.

    let me know if you're interested
    it's decent for 2 up,
    wife fell asleep on the back seat last time we did a decent trip
