It's been my trusty companion for 15 years (2nd owner) & I can't bear to trade it in, sending it to an uncertain fate. I'm hoping to find it a new owner who'll appreciate it as much as I have.
The stats: 1987; 160,000 miles (original engine); blue exterior...body in very good condition except for 1 rust-thru area behind left-front wheel well & a crack in the windshield; gray interior...dash, carpet & upholstery in excellent condition except for worn area on driver's seat; new clutch; new catalytic converter (OEM); rarely driven off-road.
Asking $4,000. Additional pics available on request. If interested, call Judy at 303-709-6728.

That's a good looking Cruiser! Hope it goes to a good home, too.

Did I meet you at the emissions test center a while back? I was the Cruiser-nerd asking you about your 60 and talking about mine. just curious.

on that note, if it's the same one...IIRC those two rusty spots are about it for rust. the rest is a nice, original Cruiser; and obviously loved over the years.

It's official...my Blue Beauty has been sold! To my great relief, one of your Rising Sun comrades is now the proud owner, & I am confident that it's in wonderful hands. I feel as though I've left the fraternity, & will now have to learn to restrain myself from waving to other Cruiser drivers on the road! My thanks to Hulk &, Jack Bear for the kind words and, yes indeed, CardinalFJ60, that was me at the Broomfield emissions station about this time last year. What a good memory (and great taste) you have! You guys are the best, judyblue-er.

Sad to see this go from you. Looks like a beaut and taken care of. Stop back in some time. :thumb:

You didn't. :eek:

I did. Already have a replacement fender. Felt like I had to grow up and have room for kids and a dog. It didn't help that the little guy wouldn't ride the 40 on the trail with his dad!

Good work, Theo, although I bet there are some 40 guys that would find your stance a little hard to swallow. I'll stop by this weekend to check out the new buggy if you are going to be home, Sash.
I need a new fender too - went to the Deadman Creek/Hubbard's Cave trail area and deadfall is a real problem up there, hence the need for a new fender. An 80 fender. OUCH! Hope Christo doesn't read this!!
