    Hi there

    I know this is off topic but I thought this would be the best forum to post it, because the question is NT specific.

    A friend of mine here in Geelong has seen an Electra Glide Ultra Classic with low k's on Bikepoint being advertised by NT Motorcycle Centre in Darwin.

    It's along way from Geelong to travel to have a look at a bike. I was wondering if any forum members have had any experience with them and would like to offer any advice.

     

    Cheers

    Heading into Darwin in the morning. I know nothing about Electra Glides but I can drop in and take a look.

    What's he want to know?

      Hi there

    Well, that would be awesome.. Just a feel for the general overall condition of the bike (engine, paint etc). Not been down the road (scrapes on the frame, scratched fairing lowers, scraped engine guard L/R etc) and making sure that all the accessories are with it (2 keys and security fobs, owners manual and headsets). Any extras been fitted as in pipes, SE tuner and stuff like that. What I would really appreciate is the VIN no. which you can PM me if its no trouble.

    Cheers and thanks again

    They are a typical 'multi agency' dealer.....they'll help out if it suits them to do so (not my favourite people) to be fair, I purchased a Road King from them several years ago without 'too many' hassles beyond parts availability and delivery times
     
    Best local guys up here are Rick & Matt at 'Motorcycle Territory' (08 89470042) If your mate is keen maybe worth calling Matt (he is pretty switched on with what is value / available locally)
     
    I can swing past the 'stealer' and have a closer look & take some pics & email them - let me know if you need a hand 
     
    Cheers

    Yes, I hear you mate. That's why I posted in this forum to get some feedback. It's along way from Geelong to Darwin!! The previous poster Magilla has offered to go have a look at the bike ( although he mentioned he's not that familiar with Glides) and the dealer has already sent some more pics of the bike. Thanks.

    I'll see what happens because I asked him to forward the VIN No. so I can do some further checks. It's advertised on Bikepoint as a 2010 but on the dealers website as an '09. It appears its on consignment not a stock item.

    Certainly give Matt a call later on.

    Cheers and thanks for yopur help mate
