I guarantee there has been gas in that tank and the engine has been run - by Honda before shipping the damn thing to this fool dealer. 

How else would it have 1.6 miles on the odometer?

Anyone looking for a good deal on a low mileage Pacific Coast?

14K miles. Water cooled shaft drive. Whisper quiet with enough power to ride two easily. Has integral locking trunk with space for a bushel of crabs and a case of beer. Has clock, voltmeter, manual cruise, lighter/charger and high aftermarket windscreen. Has LED flicker brake lights. I removed back rest which can be re-installed. New Dunlop tires (less than 500 miles). I took it for a ride today and the battery spun the starter like new after four months with no tender. Runs good and looks good. All plastic is there with some minor scuffs and blemishes. Seats are like new. Helmet and men's jacket (2x) worn less than half a dozen times included. Inspection is good through June. I bought about two years ago and have $4K in it. If you find this bike in this condition for much less than I'm asking it will be a rare find.

I agree very tempting, but $3k is a collector price. If i ran across one is decent shape for less, I would have to try it.

Absolutely joyous and enjoyable riding machine. Silly fun while not being a tempting whore on the right grip. You know its limits and qualities at every moment. Thoroughly enjoyable machine.

Never rode one but always had a soft spot for the design. I thought it was a triumph for form-follows-function.

That bike, or one exactly like it for the same price, has been on CL for a very long time.  It gets put on different cities' CL but it appears to be the same bike.  I think it was actually more expensive before.  3K IS the reduced price.

I actually think it's a good deal for a very low mileage PC. I mean you can get pretty much 100k trouble free miles out of it.

As I remember the PC was known as the "tupperware bike"

A decent touring bike but in no way a sporty

Have you ever seen Doc Wong ride one? With a passenger?   :burnout:

I remember seeing a PC in guacamole green. It reminded me of a commode. Use a  flush lever as a saddlebags latch release and it wouldn't look out of place.

 For touring, It's a great bike. The only problem now,is that the plastics are old and very hard to find decent replacements, if needed. Three grand is a fair asking price for the low miles, but whoever pays asking price?

I have heard the plastic gets/is very brittle and it doesn't get great gas mileage. Would love to see one fitted with FI.
