1986 Suzuki Cavalcade LXE

I know this is a wing forum... I bought mine recently and figured ...while i am having my morning coffee... it is worth a shot!

1986 Suzuki Cavalcade LXE. This was the top of the line model.

1400cc V-4, 49K mi (nothing for these...many go 200k+) lots of unique yet tasteful (IMHO) upgrades including LED markers, HID headlamp, Upgraded stereo with xm radio (have the original set up), tomtom rider GPS, which may or not go with it depending on selling price, trunk rack, custom exhaust tips, highway pegs and a TON MORE... (have many more pix available) Cosmetically it is in nice (but not perfect) shape. Runs great and everything works.

Bike is in central massachusetts... 3200.00

I am sure you will have a tough time reaching me due to the high volume of calls...PLEASE BE PATIENT!!!

Sure liked my '86 and '88 LXE's. Sold mine because I couldn't get parts. Would be interested but in my area, parts are like dinosaur bones. GREAT BIKE!

That is not EXACTLY true...I won't argue that if you brought it to a Suzuki dealership to have work done on it ... to them it is much like "the Lock Ness Monster or Bigfoot" (they have heard of them...but never seen either!!)

There are a few guys who specialize in these bikes on line and a couple of forums and there are plenty of used parts out there to keep them going. Once you sort them out...which I have done to this one...they are VERY reliable. And since they made less than 10K of them...they are quite rare. (how many do you think are left?)

I have way more invested in this bike than I will ever see for it...but I wanted a Wing (and now have one )and am running out of room in the garage!

Gentleman, this guy is trying to sell his bike, if you were in his situation would you appreciate your comments?
This is a FOR SALE area, not for your commentary.

I had a Cavalcade. A great, feature-laden TOURING bike for the open road... very reliable, and this one seems to be priced very reasonably!

Not anything like the current GL1800 as-far-as overall handling for 2-lanes or weight distribution (top heaviness) for sport-touring duty, but an excellent piece for what it's intended to be.

Someone SHOULD BUY this great interstate sled right away and hit the open road!

Gentleman this is a matter of manners. A matter of treating other like you would like to be treated. Not looking to start anything here.
Deleting your post would be appropriate action.
