I am planning to leave from Maine in november for an excursion to Guatemala after Lobster season ends.  I have a small budget.  I have always wanted a concours and now is the time.  Its a huge aspiration but I'm going to do it.  Is there anyone out there selling a good bike at a reasonable cost?  ANY help would be appreciated.

I had a bad experience on craigslist.  Got a truck and a trailer.  Drove half way across the state to find out the guy had hidden all the damage to the bike, said it ran well but didn't say anything about the smoke.  I can't afford those experiences they really set me back.
Thanks!

Try too be kind with your responses! (ha)

Forgot your location. Is New England too far?

This bike is more than your wanting to pay, but has lots of bells and whistles...
Including a bigger (1052) motor..

Ride safe, Ted

Normally not but even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. Good luck.

Did you find anything, Geoffrey?  If not I may have stumbled across a good deal for you here in Alabama:  1990 Connie for $1200 (and I'll bet he'll take less)

Are you still looking for a Concours? I'm getting ready to put my 2001 Concours up for sale. Excellent condition, 27K miles. I'm in NE Massachusetts.

Let me know and I'll send pictures.
